  • Fiscal Court amends nepotism ordinance

     

    The Henry County Fiscal Court last week passed an amendment to the nepotism ordinance on second reading during a special meeting.

    When Henry County Sheriff Danny Cravens made it known that his son would go through the process for a full-time position as a sheriff’s deputy, the issue of nepotism came up in the county’s personnel policy and the ethics ordinance.

  • Busting the scholarship myth

    I’ve thought long and hard about doing this column on misconceptions regarding the availability of college athletic scholarships.

    On the one hand, I don’t want to discourage local athletes from reaching for their dreams. On the other hand, I know there are many athletes and parents out there who think that athletic scholarships are easier to obtain than academic scholarships.

    I know others who mainly want to see their kids get athletic scholarships for the prestige it will bring them amongst their sports-crazy friends and peers.

    The Henry County Help Center in the Eminence United Methodist church continues to grow with donations and volunteers.

    On Thursday, Nov. 21, volunteers Rose Bertelkamp and Ruth Rockwell checked lists for food allergies and food preferences as they filled boxes with meat, potatoes, bread and toiletry items for families to pick up. Diabetic concerns and the size of the family play into what volunteers put in boxes.
