    Always one to share ideas freely, more than a year ago Ron Wright, Eminence native and Washington Lodge Odd Fellows member, suggested I could always write articles on local churches for Black History Month.

    As a good idea, that one stayed with me all the way through the rest of 2016 and into 2017, and it turned out successfully — in my opinion, anyway — when it comes to telling stories from different perspectives.

    The Eminence Warriors threatened to run away with an easy win in the first half and then had to withstand a furious Henry County rally before pulling out a 52-42 win in the first round of the 31st District tournament.

    The host Lady Cats took a 5-2 lead with 3:25 left in the first quarter on a Katherine Buckler 3-pointer. But the Warriors answered back with 3-pointers from Emilie Ethington and Tavi West to lead 8-5 after a nervous opening period for both teams.

  • Emergency education: Things to know before dialing 911 for help

    We all know to call 911 to report life-threatening emergencies, but knowing what to say to a dispatcher can help increase police, fire or EMT response time, which in some situations can save a life.
    When calling 911, try to stay calm and answer questions to the best of your ability. Answer loudly and answer clearly.
    Dispatchers are trained to ask certain questions to help them best assess a situation.
    Be sure to describe your location to the best of your ability with either a street address, intersection or landmarks to help emergency personnel locate you.

  • Safely reintroducing horses to spring pastures

    Spring is almost here, and guess what? That means cool season grasses are starting to explode with growth.
    The spring growth provides excellent forages for horses, but the quick change in diet can cause issues in your horses.
    Horses that have been fed hay all winter have adapted their gut microbes to break down more fibrous material, and the lush pastures are low in fiber compared with cured hay.
