  • HCPL kids’ room back in business

    Weekly story time at the Henry County Public Library has always signaled a time for local children to gather under the branches of the story tree.
    Unfortunately, the children’s section has been closed for repairs since Valentine’s Day, when a patron ran into an exterior wall with her vehicle.
    The story tree limbs have been bare since the accident, but that’s about to change.

  • Playing from the heart

    Seven sleepy-eyed fifth graders straggled in to Amy Knight’s humanities room at Eastern Elementary School on Tuesday morning.
    They took violins and cellos out of black gig bags, and adjusted sheet music on stands, chairs placed in a semi-circle around their musical director.

    The first attempt of the morning was not quite up to par.

  • Red Cross discusses shelter options for EIS Warrior Activity Center

    Still, there are parts of the population that may have few options in the face of a disaster. Road closures, power outages and isolation may necessitate the opening of a mass shelter.
