  • Start planning your estate today

    Have you ever asked yourself the “what if” questions? What if something should happen to me today? What if something should happen to my spouse or business partner? What if I have an accident that leaves me incapacitated?

    Just five games into their season, the Eminence softball team is off to its best start in years — 5-0.

    “So far... we’ve made very, very few mental mistakes,” head coach Bill Covington said. “I can take a physical error a whole lot more than I can take a mental error, and we really have done a good job this year.”
