  • Eminence Guest column: July an unusually busy month for legislature

    July may not be a time normally associated with a rush of legislative activity, but in a key way, no month is busier.

    That’s because it marks the beginning of the state’s fiscal year, and it also is when most of the new laws adopted earlier in the year by the General Assembly take effect.  Unless there is an emergency clause or another specified date, all enacted bills officially go on the books 90 days after the end of a legislative session.  This year, that falls on July 12.

  • One is the loneliest number

    Scoring is up in the world’s most popular tournament this year. There have been stunning moves and scores, plus drama on and off the playing surface. I have watched as much of it as I can but work gets in the way and I’ve missed some great games.
    No, I’m not talking NBA playoffs.

  • Roberts went from 'nobody' to somebody


    During the 30th District girls’ basketball final in 1993, two rare things happened.
    The first was Henry County and Eminence basketball fans cheering a team on together. They chanted in unison, over and over again, “We are somebody!”
    The other was the first, and only, district title for the Lady Warriors, which came in a win over the Shelby County Lady Rockets.
    Fans from both Henry County and Eminence were ecstatic to see the David and Goliath moment.

  • Aspiring pros on tour

    Henry County has a couple of 10-year-old golfers who are playing some serious golf this summer. Isaac Klempner and Alex Hadden are playing in golf tournaments on two different junior tours. So far they have competed in 20 of the one-day tournaments and combined for 14 first and second place finishes.

    They have played mainly on the Musselman-Dunne Junior Golf tour.  Alex has played four events on the Pepsi Junior Golf Tour and Isaac has competed in one Pepsi event.

    The two youngsters are unusually focused and determined for their age.

  • Time to submit entries at the county fair

    Entries for the Henry County Fair will be taken 9 a.m. to noon, Monday, July 2, at the Henry County Fairgrounds building.  This year has been a busy one in 4-H and I hope that since so many of you have taken the time to complete 4-H projects that you will take the time to enter them.  Remember every 4-H entry receives a premium, so the more you enter the more you win!  Of course, the county winners will also be entered in the Kentucky State Fair in Cloverville.

  • Preventing pinkeye
