  • The courage to overcome irrational fears

    My daughter and her husband recently brought home a tiny black puppy for their five children. All the kids immediately began fawning over him except Ellie, age 6, who harbors a desperate fear that he might bite her. She leaps onto a chair or to the top of the couch whenever he’s around. While this reaction may sound reasonable, the truth is that this little creature weighs all of six pounds. The other morning I watched from a distance as she slowly and cautiously stretched out her little arm from the top of a riding toy to try petting him as he dashed around.

  • Who is Warren Stone?

    General Manager

    On May 18, Warren Stone sat quietly in the jury box of the Henry County District courtroom, shifting his hands and periodically surveying the scene around him.

    Handcuffed and in the orange jumpsuit of the Carroll County Detention Center, Stone chatted with the jailers responsible for bringing him to court, and later with his attorney, Ben Coomes.

  • RELAY For Life

    Relay For Life in Henry County is quickly approaching, scheduled for Friday, June 26, at the Henry County High School Track.  Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature activity. It offers everyone in a community an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer. Teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Relays are an overnight event, up to 24 hours in length.

    A determined Brittany Crawford blasted out of the blocks, clipped the first hurdle and settled into a quick rhythm for the next nine as she closed in on the competition and finished with a perfect lean at the line.

  • HCPS presents ‘good’ budget

    At the May meeting of the HCPS board, superintendent Tim Abrams asked the board to approve the 2009-10 district tentative budget.

    “It’s a good budget,” he said. “It shows us being in sound financial condition.”

    Abrams said it is difficult to call it a great budget because although the district has a six percent contingency, future cuts at the state level could deplete the fund significantly. The district is required to maintain a reserve of at least two percent.

    Emma Foree has lived  on Crabb Ave. across from the Eminence Independent Schools’ softball field for four years.

    During games she has come to expect fouled-back softballs landing in her yard or closer.

    Last year during tournament play a ball flew through an open window.

    “That’s something I can’t explain to this day,” she said. “The ball landed right on my son’s bed.”
