  • Loss will help EHS squad, coach says

    The Eminence volleyball squad was at home for the first time this season last Monday night, but there was a tough team standing on the other side of the court.

    Bullitt Central started out strong, continued to apply the pressure and left Eminence with a convincing 2-0 win in the best-of-three series. The Lady Cougars, led by a strong hitting attack, are definitely the best team Eminence has seen so far, head coach Stephanie Meadows said afterwards. She hopes it will improve her team’s play against other opponents.

  • A life recalled through a garage sale

    Yesterday was gorgeous — sunny and pleasantly cool — the kind of day that evokes a good mood. As I headed toward Louisville to do some errands, I saw a sign for a garage sale next to a driveway beside a lawn overflowing with boxes and tables strewn with books, pots, pans, dishes — all manner of household items and personal belongings. I will admit it. I love garage sales, although I don’t seek them out. I prefer simply to stop when I happen upon one during my various trips.

  • Program’s going the right way

  • Reader agrees with Norm

    I agree with Norm’s ad in the Henry County Local. Shame on you. Do you know Bill Covington? Have you ever interviewed him? How much research did you do on that abysmal article? I’ve been around here since 1962, so I knew and did business with Bill Covington at Farmer’s Deposit Bank from the time Chuck Keiser retired. I could tell you stories of good deeds that Bill did for people in Henry County through the bank. And he’ll be an asset to the school system.

    Last Saturday, Claude A. “Junie” Berry Jr. stepped onto a jet chartered by Honor Flight Network Bluegrass Chapter. He and 37 other World War II veterans from Kentucky were flown to Washington, D.C., for a visit to the World War II memorial.

    Only four of the 38 didn’t require the use of a wheelchair for the walking tour. “I can walk,” he said, “but not all day.”
