  • Veterans Day a special time for state, country

    Veterans Day is always a special time for our country, but it promises to be even more memorable on Friday because of its location on the calendar.

    That’s because, for the first time ever, the year aligns perfectly with the holiday’s specific time of remembrance.  It will be another century before anyone else can pause to honor those who have served our country on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of the 11th year.

  • Couponing is not just for groceries

    Two weeks ago, I put the question To Coupon or Not to Coupon to you. Hopefully, that got your attention. This week, I’m going to take that further.

    The average family that coupons as I teach them how saves roughly $450 a month. That comes to $5,400 a year.

    Imagine what you could do with that money — put it toward your mortgage, pay down your bills, help pay for your child’s education, fund your retirement … The possibilities are endless.

  • Seniors post 5k times under 20m, but don’t make state cut

    Despite posting solid times Saturday, no runner from Henry County qualified for the state cross country championships.
    Eminence’s Adam Case ran the 5k qualifying race in 19:47, his second fastest time this season, but not quite enough to qualify for the Class A Championships.

  • Tunovers costly in Eminence loss to Ludlow

    “Do what I said, do it with class. You say good game, good season, good luck.”

    It could’ve been Eminence High School football head coach Steve Frommeyer saying those words Friday night. And he may have.

    But it was Ludlow High School head coach Rick Hornsby Sr. His Panthers defeated Frommeyer’s Warriors 55-28, and drew Eminence’s season to a close.

  • 'Cats give their all in 14-7 loss

    They saved their best for last.

    It may not have been quite enough to overcome the Corbin Redhounds, who defeated the Wildcats 14-7, and advanced to the second round of the class 3A playoffs.

    “The kids played outstanding,” head coach Jason Spencer said.

    “The kids played hard, they never quit. It wasn’t depressing — our kids fought the entire game.”
