  • EHS coach happy with new Trimble layout

    Eminence’s cross-country coach Scott McClamroch was very pleased with the new regional course and his runners at the Trimble County Invitational on Saturday, he said as the Warriors prepare to race on the same course in two weeks.

  • A balmy, stress-free Sunday evening

    One of my gurus, a psychiatrist famous in the 1940s and 1950s for his self-help program, wrote that one could take stress in stride by accepting frustration as an expected occurrence in everyday life. “Life is a business of frustrations,” he taught his patients to recite whenever the inevitable occurred. His was not a negative approach to life but rather a realistic one.

    At the end of television commercials for many prescription drugs, a voice-over states something like, “If you need help paying for your prescriptions, call...”

    If you have wondered if those offers of help apply to you, a new program in the county can answer your questions.

    In October 2008, Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear announced the Kentucky Prescription Assistance Program. It was described as an innovative initiative to utilize and coordinate existing programs.

  • County should read up on Patrick Henry

    It’s hard to believe that in a county presumably named after Patrick Henry — that great man who declared, “Give me Liberty or give me death!” — that anybody would face the property rights issues the Cooks of New Castle are facing. Patrick Henry, by the way, was the first governor of Virginia in 1776, was also the first governor of what is now Kentucky.

    Maybe your county officials could do some reading of a good biography of Henry. Public officials these days are in need of some learning about what Liberty really means.

    One of the last remaining historic Campbellsburg buildings is gone.

    The old L&N train depot in Campbellsburg burned to the ground early Monday, Oct. 26. The building was one of the few that survived a tornado in 1974 that levelled most of the town’s older buildings.

    Kentucky State Police Public Affairs Officer Trooper Seth Willis said the 911 call came into Post 5 at approximately 12:30 a.m.

  • Final eight-man game?

    Playing in what might have been their final eight-man football game, the Eminence Warriors blew past North Hardin Christian, 58-18, on Friday night to win the unofficial Kentucky State Eight-Man Series Championship and end the regular season with a 7-3 record.

    As teams all across Kentucky close out the regular season this Friday, the Warriors have a bye. They will then open the Class A playoffs against Ludlow at home on Nov. 6. Eminence lost to Ludlow in the first round last year and have never won an 11-man playoff game.
