  • Bethlehem to unveil new stamp

    Each year, the U.S. Postal Service produces special Christmas stamps. This year is no different — one of this year’s Christmas stamps is based on the Holy Family.

  • November is diabetes month; events set for Saturday

    For much of her life, Judy Bender of Smithfield was the caretaker.

    She took care of others — her parents, her husband, a handful of foster children.

    But three years ago, it was time for Bender to take care of herself: she was diagnosed with diabetes.

    It came as a surprise to Bender, 69. Her doctor told her that diabetes can be one of the changes associated with aging.

  • Lost, then found

    Lee and Betty Peyton saved not just her great-great grandfather’s family home, but a piece of Henry County history from certain deterioration.

    Water compromised the roof of the house and the south wall started to separate from the structure, cracking the seams of brick fashioned on site when Betty Peyton purchased her great-great grandfather’s home in the late 70s. With the aid of a grant from the Kentucky Heritage Commission, Peyton restored the house to its former glory.

  • From cross to the Boss

     Today’s column is going to be a bit eclectic. I want to talk about two of my favorite things: cross country and Bruce Springsteen. Some of you are already saying to yourselves; why are you going to write about a rock and roll singer in a sports column. To that I respond: be patient we’ll get to that a little later.

    Measuring success

    Cross country season ended for local athletes this week. Henry County hosted the Class AA Regional meet Saturday and, alas, did not have any runners qualify for state.

  • Warriors fall to Bellevue, 48-8

    Against a bigger, more experienced team, the Eminence Warriors held their ground for one half in the Class A Playoffs Friday night.

    Eminence’s season ends at 7-4.

    Lilly Golden led the girls’ team with a season best time of 22:23.
