  • Warriors fall to Owen, Carroll

    When the Eminence Warriors first squared off against Owen County on Jan. 24, it was a rough 82-36 win for the Rebels.

    Eminence knew what it needed to do against the streaky-fast, hot-shooting team.

    “Our game plan was to hold the ball,” Eminence head coach Chris Nethery said. “If they didn’t have it, they couldn’t score.”

  • Paynter signs with Cumberlands

    Henry County High School senior Victoria Paynter made history Friday.

    The senior soccer player became the first female player from the school to sign a letter of intent to play college soccer when she signed with the University of the Cumberlands.

    She was joined in the high school library with family, friends and former coaches to share in the momentous occasion. Paynter’s parents, Leesa and Skip, observed the signing, along with her former coaches, Shannon Snider and Charlie Pait.

  • Our future under the health care law

    When the health care law was passed, the Democrats cleverly front-loaded some of the goodies, but left the most troubling mandates and requirements to be implemented at a later date.  When the Obama administration recently released its contraception mandate, we all got a glimpse of what is coming from Washington as the health care law is implemented.

  • When a receipt is more than a receipt

    File those Receipts

    When we bought our home in 1992, we installed ceiling fans in every room. I know decorators hate them, but who cares what they think? Anyway, in 2008, my Mom reached up and pulled the chain on the fan in her bedroom and kaboom! It shorted out and burst into a ball of fire.

    Thankfully, my husband was home and he was able to disconnect it and save the night without anyone getting hurt or the house burning down.

  • Eminence council considers STAR amendment

    Any Eminence business that sells alcohol may soon be required to have its employees STAR-trained.

    That would include the city’s liquor stores, as well as other businesses that sell package beer. Server Training in Alcohol Regulations already had been part of the city’s alcohol ordinance for restaurants, but one council member felt that the requirement should go a little further.

    Currently, the regulation requires only that one employee per shift be STAR trained.

  • HCSO pulls weed sent by UPS

    A UPS delivery from California resulted in the arrest of a Louisville woman in Henry County last week.

    Henry County Sheriff Danny Cravens said Sarah A. Scott, 33, was arrested after she allegedly accepted a UPS delivery containing 30 pounds of marijuana.

    The marijuana carries a street value of about $40,000 to $45,000.

    Cravens said the San Bernadino, Calif., Sheriff’s Office contacted him last week to notify him of a possible drug-trafficking operation.

  • Timing is everything for EHS senior

    They say timing is everything, and so it was for Eminence High School senior Alyssa Jones.

    Jones, who has been involved in her church choir since she was very young and began taking voice lessons from Ruth Ann Mills-Moore in New Castle as a fourth-grader, participated in the music program during her three years at Henry County High School.

    Last summer, she and her family moved to the house in Eminence where her late grandmother lived. That meant transferring from HCHS to EHS for her senior year.

  • Jury finds Gibson not guilty

    After more than nine hours of deliberation, a jury found Johnny Lee Gibson not guilty of five felony charges related to a 2008 home invasion in Smithfield.

    Rob Riley, who defended Gibson, said his client was “ecstatic that he finally had his day in court,” and that Gibson was “happy as a clam” with the verdict.
