  • Remember veterans every day

    Tomorrow morning, a few hundred Henry Countians will gather in the gym at Henry County High School for a special ceremony.

    There, the school’s Junior ROTC cadets will honor the county’s many veterans. It’s a ceremony that never fails to make me cry.

    All too often, we fail to recognize veterans. Whether or not we agree with the particular war they fought in, we owe them a thank you.

    At around 10 p.m. on Oct. 21, a buck-knife-wielding man allegedly demanded money from the lone clerk at the gas station.

    The employee handed over around $900 cash.

  • New team emerging

    You know how the Eminence volleyball players know they have reached that level, the one they’ve been aiming for all season? Their reaction to a loss. Yes, a loss.

    It took the final game of the regular season to get it out of them. The Lady Warriors have arrived, and them being upset following a 2-1 loss to Trimble County last Thursday night broke the news. They expected to win, played to win, and came up just short.
