  • Lack of urinals isn’t the real travesty

    With all due respect to Campbellsburg City Council member Rex Morgan, the lack of urinals at the Campbellsburg Fire Department is, in itself, far from a travesty.

    The travesty is that months after reconstruction of the station began, problems still are cropping up. If the bidding process was any indication, this shouldn’t be a surprise.

  • Cats runners-up in Toyota Holiday Classic

    Even with a new coach and inexperienced players, the expectations are high for the Henry County High School boys’ basketball team. And that’s just the way coach Derek Springate wants to keep it.

    The Wildcats finished second place in the Forcht Bank/Dry Ridge Toyota Holiday Classic hosted by Grant County last week, but Springate was not satisfied after his team went 2-2 during the five-day stretch. The Cats beat Ludlow (70-51) last Saturday and Grant County (56-42) on Monday, and then lost to Williamstown (38-37) on Tuesday and South Oldham (46-33) on Wednesday.

  • Sluggish starts equal two more EHS losses

    The Eminence Warriors followed two near-identical storylines last week, starting out sluggish against Evangel Christian and Heritage Academy before regrouping when the basketball games were out of reach.

    Playing in the Portland Christian Holiday Classic, the EHS boys’ team lost to Evangel last Monday, 88-57, then lost to Heritage on Tuesday, 77-52, to drop its record to 1-7. The Warriors were trailing 27-3 during the opening quarter of the first game and 20-8 in the second.

  • Thanks for help with nativity

    We want to thank everyone who helped in any way to once again make sure the ministry of the Bethlehem Living Nativity keeps going.

    This portrayal of our savior Jesus Christ’s birth is now 51 years old.

    Without all your help and support these many years, this would surely not have been possible.

    Again, thank you so much. May God bless each of you.

  • Owner always wanted to have a peddler’s mall

    Staff writer/photographer

    The New York Times July 21, 1969, headline reads “Men walk on moon,” but the plastic-bagged historic paper, in pristine condition, is not housed in some museum. It’s for sale at the newly opened Tiffany’s Great Bargains Flea Market at 5247 S. Main Street in Eminence.

    Operator Melissa Carroll said she plans to fill the 3,500 square foot space with everything a peddlers’ mall patron’s heart could desire.
