  • 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

  • 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.

    O n Wednesday, May 26, 2004, the headlines reflected life as normal in Henry County. New Castle wasn’t yet raising water rates, it wasn’t your daddy’s football, and one city was considering a bicycle patrol.

    A page of photos touting the revival of Eminence Day depicted smiling residents waving from from a convertible, barbecuing and gliding down a slide barefooted. The page proclaimed“Eminence Day 2004 hit town on Saturday, May 22.”

    What a difference a day makes.
