  • Disappointed by headline

    I have to say, I’m disappointed in this headline and its negativity.  As a member of the community, president of the local bank, athletic booster, volunteer coach and parent, Bill Covington made numerous contributions to Eminence Independent Schools, the City of Eminence and Henry County. I think it speaks volumes for his character that he wants to come back to Eminence and make additional contributions to the school, the students and the future of our community, all the while knowing that there will be some people who just can’t move on.

  • HC graduate lands role as Scratch

    While in the school library studying for finals at the University of Kentucky last spring, Reece Brammell and a friend noticed an advertisement that popped up on Facebook for mascot additions. Just a click later, Brammell was on his way to becoming the new Scratch at UK.

  • Henry County lost one of its greats

    John Allgeier: A family man, a community man and a great person. While a magistrate, he was an active member of the Kentucky Magistrates and Commissioners Association and made many contributions to it. He believed in the purpose of the association and was always willing to help it along.

  • MWA back in Eminence to raise money for Colts

    The Mountain Wrestling Association will make a return trip to the Eminence Community Life Center this Saturday to help raise money for the Eastern Colts of the Henry County Youth Football League.

  • Health care for all?

    Having a national debate on health care reform is welcomed by President Obama. The trouble is, no sooner does the President call for “everyone to pitch in” and engage in the debate, that he vilifies anyone who criticizes his plans. Having a civil national debate will produce more lasting change; accusing opponents of engaging in scare tactics and fear mongering will not.

  • Leave the man alone

    I was very sorry you chose to have the front page bold print July 29, 2009, Local edition state “From bank to jail to classroom.” This article was totally uncalled for and was about Bill Covington, former president of the Farmers Deposit Bank.

  • County lost ‘truly dedicated citizen’

    With the recent death of former Henry County Magistrate John Allgeier, Henry County lost one of our truly dedicated citizens. Words can not express how much his friendship meant to me and to so many others whose lives he touched. Maybe he did a wedding for you or a family member. Maybe you called him about a road that needed repairing, or you met him while he was serving as a volunteer fireman.  Maybe he told you a joke, or laughed with you at the stock yard sales. Maybe he was just there when you needed a friend.

    Eminence is reviving the tradition of Eminence Day on Saturday, Aug. 8. Mayor Jim Pettit and organizers promise a day to remember.

    “There hasn’t been an Eminence Day at least since I’ve been in office,” he said, “but the council decided they wanted to run with it.”

    Lee Ann Armstrong is one of three council members who helped organize the event.

  • European Vacation: HCHS students get international experience

    Staff writer/photographer

    For HCHS students Aaron Wedge and Clint Diven it was a very cool way to end summer vacation.

    The 16-year olds traveled to five European destinations as student ambassadors through the People to People program.

    “There were 29 from Kentucky,” Wedge said, “and we met other groups from Maryland, New York and Texas.” The Kentucky delegation was matched with the one from Colorado.

    The first stop on what was billed as Traditions of Europe was Cahersiveen, Ireland.
