  • A tribute to our most loyal friends

    When he first came into our office, Bob McGee told me about Molly with a tear in his eye.

    His faithful companion, with whom he walked nearly every day for as long as they were friends, had died.

    McGee and Molly had a long relationship of master and loyal pooch. I understood the tears in his eyes.

    Over the years I’ve had countless dogs —and cats — and seen them come and go. Koko the German Shepherd mix was one of my best friends when I was a child.

    Dr. Damon Gatewood’s family practice in Campbellsburg has undergone some major changes.

    “We’ve grown quite a bit,” he said.

    With an eye toward serving more families in the community, Gatewood said he added Nurse Practitioner Jan Powell to the staff and moved to a larger office in the industrial park.

    The new facility is 4,000 square feet and is located just inside the industrial park in front of the Kentucky State Police post.

  • P’Ville talks cops ... again

    General Manager

    Though some officials maintain the city simply cannot afford it, the Pleasureville City Commission turned its discussion, again, toward a police officer for the small town.

    During Monday night’s business meeting, the topic sprang up at different points, including the passage of the city’s 2009-2010 budget.

  • Coach Holland says goodbye

    It was a speech Jason Holland didn’t want to give, but one he had to — saying goodbye to the players he helped mold the last five years.

    On Friday, May 22, Holland told the Henry County boys’ basketball players that he was resigning and had accepted a new coaching position at Oldham County. This came just two hours after he told the Oldham players he was their new head man. Holland, who transformed the Henry program from the worst record in the 8th Region to the second best, made the tough decision to move on. It wasn’t an easy one.

    Some regulars at the Henry County Life Enrichment Center recently took a break from their card games to work on Tai Chi moves with center director Bryan Raisor.

    Raisor became a certified instructor in the ancient exercise discipline in order to teach the group.

    “It relieves pain,” he said, “and it’s good for people in any physical condition.”

    The eight-week course is being offered under the auspices of the Arthritis Foundation.

  • Archery qualifies for Worlds Competition

    It’s been a roller-coaster season for the Eminence archery team this school year, which started with the sudden death of its head coach, Dewayne Douglas, on Jan. 9, and culminated in a trip to the National Archery in the Schools Program national tournament on May 8-9. The Warriors have experienced the highs, along with the lows.

  • Warriors play top game in 12-2 loss

    For the first time this season, the Eminence Warriors just went out and played baseball with every pitch and every swing of the bat. And because of that leave-it-all-on-the-field attitude, coach Mark Payton could not have been more pleased.

  • Committee takes in-depth looks at issues affecting Kentucky

    Whenever the General Assembly wants to take a more in-depth look at an issue affecting Kentucky, it often turns to its Program Review and Investigations Committee.

    The subjects it covers are as wide ranging as state government.  Two of its most recent reports, for example, dealt with re-entry programs for felons completing their prison sentence and the cost of college and high school textbooks.
