    After dropping three games last week, the Eminence High School baseball team is currently 0-4 overall and 0-1 in 30th District play.

  • An angel in Henry County

    At Henry County High School it’s senior project time and throughout their senior year students had to pick a mentor to work with them.  I wanted to take the time to acknowledge a wonderful woman in this county who gave of her time, her talent and wisdom when she didn’t have to. Most of you may know her as she is involved in lots of different clubs and activities here at home. Her name is Malissa Beatty.  She really is a hometown hero.  She is a local artist here in town and an outstanding member of our small community.

    The Wee Warriors day care program of Eminence Elementary School welcomed a real warrior last week.

    Sam McAfee — a Blue Clan member of the Overhill Tribe of the Cherokee Nation — explained tribal life to the children using authentic accoutrements as visual aids. McAfee got their complete attention when he held up a wide leathery piece and showed it around the room. “This is the armband that I wear when I dance,” he said. “It’s made of rattlesnake.”

    Ann and Bob Cook said they relocated from a Louisville subdivision onto 11 acres on a Henry County ridge in order to live “off the grid.”

    That’s the term used to describe the use of alternative power sources like solar or wind energy to lessen or eliminate dependence on the nation’s power grid.

    Ann Cook said the homeowner’s association where they used to reside would not allow them even to put solar panels on their home.
