  • Frazier’s Ballpark

    Jadie Frazier was one of the best athletes to ever come through Henry County. He averaged 32 points per game as a senior at Henry Central High School in 1959; he was a starter and double-digit scorer for the University of Louisville; he competed for the U of L track team; he was a star pitcher in fastpitch softball up until the age of 50; and he was inducted into the Louisville ASA Hall of Fame.

  • Jadie Frazier, one of the great athletes from Henry

    He might not be able to move as fast as he once could — when he had the athletic flair to jump up, spin around and put the ball in the rim in one graceful motion — but his eyes still light up when he remembers his playing days. And when speaking about his family or Frazier’s Field located close to Bardstown Road in Louisville, his eyes light up even more.

  • Elston murder trial is underway

    The following facts are not in dispute in the trial of Robert Steven Elston.

    On July 6, 2008 Elston pulled the trigger of a .44-caliber magnum discharging one bullet into the chest of Joseph D. Burch, 31, killing the younger man almost instantaneously.

    Elston, whose defense team will argue he fired in self-defense, was charged with second-degree murder.

    As he sat in court during the trial, he appeared calm and lucid, smiling at family members as he was seated and to whom he clearly wanted to speak.

  • Bravo to Eminence Independent Schools

    Congratulations to the Eminence Independent Schools for hiring Bill Covington and giving him a second chance! We in Eminence are so fortunate to have a fine school and dedicated school board. Our chairman has served many years, surely does not give up easily. I would certainly hope every man should have respect and deserves a second chance in life.

    Now, my question, should this subject be the lead article in the county weekly newspaper?

    Carolyn Giltner,

    Eminence

     

  • Disappointed by headline

    I have to say, I’m disappointed in this headline and its negativity.  As a member of the community, president of the local bank, athletic booster, volunteer coach and parent, Bill Covington made numerous contributions to Eminence Independent Schools, the City of Eminence and Henry County. I think it speaks volumes for his character that he wants to come back to Eminence and make additional contributions to the school, the students and the future of our community, all the while knowing that there will be some people who just can’t move on.

  • HC graduate lands role as Scratch

    While in the school library studying for finals at the University of Kentucky last spring, Reece Brammell and a friend noticed an advertisement that popped up on Facebook for mascot additions. Just a click later, Brammell was on his way to becoming the new Scratch at UK.

  • Henry County lost one of its greats

    John Allgeier: A family man, a community man and a great person. While a magistrate, he was an active member of the Kentucky Magistrates and Commissioners Association and made many contributions to it. He believed in the purpose of the association and was always willing to help it along.

  • MWA back in Eminence to raise money for Colts

    Youth Soccer

    The Henry County Youth Soccer Association will have registration this Saturday at the Henry County Library and Aug. 15 at the soccer pavilion at Harry Hill Park. Both registration dates will start at 9 .m. and last until noon.

    The soccer organization is a recreational league that had 18 teams last year for players ranging from 4-12. The league is designed to teach kids at any age about soccer. It is held at Harry Hill Park but will eventually be moved to the new park in New Castle.

  • Health care for all?

    Having a national debate on health care reform is welcomed by President Obama. The trouble is, no sooner does the President call for “everyone to pitch in” and engage in the debate, that he vilifies anyone who criticizes his plans. Having a civil national debate will produce more lasting change; accusing opponents of engaging in scare tactics and fear mongering will not.
