  • Eminence girls’ squad still looking for a victory

    The Eminence High School girls’ basketball team dropped games to Whitefield Academy and Newport last week, which gave the Lady Warriors an 0-6 start to the season.

    Eminence coach Carter Martin said his team played “better” in the 75-32 loss to Whitefield last Friday and “poorly” in the 61-22 loss to Newport on Saturday in the opening game of the Grant County Forcht Bank/Dry Ridge Toyota Holiday Classic. Both games resulted in losses for a squad still trying to put its first check in the win column.

  • It’s first win of season for Warriors

    In their first feel-good moment of the season, the Eminence Warriors defeated Kentucky School for the Deaf last Thursday night.

    The 49-43 win snapped a 20-game losing streak dating back to last December. The Warriors dropped their final 15 games last winter, then opened with losses to Gallatin County, Heritage Academy, Evangel Christian, Burgin and Kentucky Country Day.

  • Christmas isn’t just for children

    The other day I overheard a conversation in the grocery store while waiting in line to check out. A woman was saying that Christmas is for children, and her listener clucked her tongue and said that she certainly had to agree. I have heard this sad assessment of the holiday season before, but I am always taken aback. 

    Certainly, the religious significance of the Christmas season does not fade as one ages. If anything, it may deepen as you become stronger in your faith. I am sure there are many heartfelt sermons delivered on that very topic each December.

  • Commissioner repeats position

    As for the maintenance of the properties in Pleasureville if you had listented to what I said I am 100 percent for keeping our town looking good, the trash picked up and the yards mowed. I am not for putting a lien on someone’s property because they don’t have the money to put siding on their house. I think we have bigger things to worry about like the Pool Room was broken into; the hardware store was broken into; the post office, someone used the bathroom and wiped it on everything; a car was stolen. But they say we don’t need a police officer.

  • Reader will miss Bethlehem Living Nativity

    This year for the first time in my 55 years I will not be in Henry County in the days before Christmas which means that for the first time I can remember since I was a teenager, I will not stand in the Bethlehem Living Nativity.

    I am happy to have my husband and daughters and in-laws to share Christmas Day here in Memphis — and we will cross the rivers and woods on Dec. 26 to reach my folks’ Henry County farm for another celebration with four generations of Clubbs.

  • Holiday trash pick up delayed

    Rumpke trash pick up normally scheduled for Friday, Dec. 25 and Friday, Jan. 1, will take place on Saturday, Dec. 26, and Saturday, Jan. 2.

     

  • Henry girls still perfect at 3-0

    For the first time in 10 seasons, the Henry County Ladycats are a perfect 3-0 on the basketball court.

    The Henry girls’ team defeated Eminence in its opener on Dec. 3, then beat Ludlow on Dec. 5 and Gallatin County last Thursday for the unblemished start. The last time Henry was 3-0 was in the 1999-2000 season.

    The Gallatin win also gave Henry a 1-0 start in 31st District play — the focal point to what looks to be a promising season.

  • Finding Country Treasures on Main Street

    Staff writer/photographer

    Tim Tingle almost rhymes with Kris Kringle. Aptly, Tingle and a few hardworking elves recently put finishing touches on a magical Christmas shop right in the middle of downtown Eminence.

    Country Treasures, Antiques, Florals and Consignments opened for business at 5241 Main Street just in time for Light Up Eminence.
