    The victim of a 2009 rape believes her attacker should have been charged with attempted murder.

    James “Foxy” Wright, of Eminence, entered into a plea agreement last month and was formally sentenced in Henry Circuit Court last week. Wright will serve 12 years for 1st degree rape, a class B felony, and 1 year for 2nd degree assault, a class A misdemeanor.

  • White responds to criticism

    Mike Ray is an honorable man.  I have known him since Protect Our Children, an organization that Pid Smith and I started to stop an illegal waste incinerator and which culminated in county-wide zoning. Since that time he has served Henry County in several capacities, the last as the appointed head of the Henry County Development Council.

    The scene has played out on countless television crime shows: an intruder breaks into a house while one of the residents is still home. A young girl hides in a closet while an intruder rifles through the family’s belongings.

    But that television scene became reality on North Main Street in Eminence on Oct. 15.

  • MacKenzie Peyton makes state finals, finishes tied for 51st in standings

    In what head coach Kathy Peyton described as an added bonus to an already outstanding season, Henry County’s MacKenzie Peyton advanced to the final day of the Leachman/KHSAA Girls’ State Golf Tournament last week, and ended up tied for 51st in the individual standings.

    MacKenzie, an eighth-grade student at Henry County Middle School, became the first girl athlete from Henry County to qualify for the event when she finished second at the Region Five tournament one week earlier.

  • Proud to live in Eminence

    The morning of Wednesday, Oct. 27, was a sad morning for one of our business owners. Ricky Rines lost a good part of his Automotive business.

  • Election day is just two weeks away

    The big day is almost here.

    On Nov. 2, Henry Countians will head to the polls and cast their choices for city, county and state races.

    I’d like to extend a big thank you to those candidates who participated in our election forums last week, and those who will attend our third and final forum tomorrow night in Campbellsburg.

    Edens Echo Farm is comprised of a five-acre plot of land, enough for a big garden and small orchard, a few goats and sheep, plus chickens that lay and some to fry.

    The Adam and Eve who tend this Eden are Ben and Kristin Secaur, but they don’t tend it alone.

  • County teams advance to middle school state playoffs

    Henry County Middle School is still perfect at 8-0, Eminence Middle School has just one blemish on its record at 8-1, and both teams will play in the middle school state playoffs starting this week.

    It marks the first time both teams have qualified for the playoffs in one of the three divisions that make up middle school football in Kentucky. With Division 1 being the largest, Henry plays in Division 2 and Eminence in Division 3.

  • Frankfort wins again

    Frankfort’s perfect streak of district wins continues.

    Since the state’s football realignment in 2007, Frankfort has won all 16 of its District Four outings en route to three district championships and has established itself as one of the leading Class A programs in the area.

    Eminence has lost to the Panthers in their last five meetings, and it was no different on Friday night as Frankfort used its speed to jump out to an early 21-0 lead and cruised in for the 34-6 victory.
