  • Donations needed for Humane Society

    My name is Sean Hoagland and I am an eighth grader at Eminence Middle School. I would like to get information on asking for community help with the Humane Society.  I am doing a community project for school and chose the Humane Society because of my love of animals.  Since volunteering at the Shelby Co. Humane Society (Henry Co. directed me there since their volunteer coordinator had a family illness), I have found out there is a huge need for donations.  The society runs on donations which are down due to our hard economy.

  • Mr. Aikley, hired man, and Chubby

    When I was a young girl growing up on a farm in upstate New York, my folks had a hired man named Shel Aikley. Given the custom in those days and the fact that he was probably 40 years older than I was, I always politely addressed him as “Mr. Aikley.” He gave me the feeling that he was fond of me, and, sure enough, years later at my wedding, he wept openly, as if he’d been my uncle.

  • More snow + more wind = big drifts

    Call it the winter that just won’t go away.

    What began as a manageable few inches last week causing a few minor problems turned into a pavement eating monster Monday and Tuesday.

    Glen Baxter, Henry County Road Department Supervisor, said Tuesday afternoon that crews saw snow drifts as high as seven feet in some places.

    Monday’s storm dropped six inches of snow on the ground, and constant winds whipped the powder into a frenzy all day, and night, long.

  • EHS girls pick up win No. 2

    Celebrating their second win this basketball season, the Eminence Lady Warriors defeated Covington Latin 46-38 last Friday night.

    The Lady Warriors beat St. Francis on Jan. 28. They were ahead of Evangel Christian two weeks ago but were given a 2-0 forfeit loss when the referees ruled the game was out of control with Eminence leading 50-47 and just 2:12 left in regulation.

    Against Latin in Eminence’s Homecoming on Friday, the Warriors led most of the way and came away with win number two. They are now 2-23 on the season.
