    What began as a routine call about a loose dog has turned into anything but that.

    On Sunday, Sept. 13, Charles Luster, an Eminence resident on Jackson Road, called 911 to report being attacked by a dog.

    Eminence Police Chief Carey Duncan was dispatched at 9:52 a.m. Within minutes, he shot a black Rottweiler named Dozer.

    In an official statement to EPD, Luster said he was walking southbound from his home at 4600 Jackson Road at about 9:50 a.m. He was on his way to church.

    It was the best half of soccer the Henry County boys’ team has played this season, but they still took a 4-1 loss to Spencer County last Monday night to drop to 0-6 with just one game remaining on their schedule.

  • Illegal Immigrants and Health Care Reform

    Since President Obama’s address to the Joint Session of Congress on Sept. 9, there have been many conflicting reports about whether illegal immigrants would be able to access the health care benefits included in the reform legislation being considered in the House of Representatives.

    Despite the President’s pledge that his plan for health care reform “would not apply to those who are here illegally,” H.R. 3200 does not do enough to satisfy the President’s standard.

  • Rx: Don’t take life too seriously

    My father-in-law, a gentle, old-fashioned country doctor, had three attitudes that he referred to as his “prescription for a happy life.” He lived by them and he urged them on his patients, his children, and, of course, on their spouses. They were: 1) Think highly of yourself; 2) Never feel sorry for yourself, and; 3) Don’t take life too seriously. As my father-in-law was a wise and happy man, my husband and I tried to pass his prescription on to our own children.

  • EMS cheerleaders need your support

    I just want to take the time to thank the Silver Wings Band for donating their time to come help raise money for the Eminence Middle School cheerleaders. They did an awesome job! Also I want to take the time to thank the people that did show up to support these girls. We do appreciate the school for allowing us to use the gym to have this benefit. What really bothers me is the lack of support from the school personnel and the community. It would have been an awesome turn out if we would have had more support from the two.
