    Staff writer/photographer

    Students from two Henry County schools will face off against each other — and the rest of the state — for a chance to represent Kentucky at the We The People...Project Citizen national competition later this year.

    Last Thursday, the 18-member Student Government Club from HCMS competed with two Eastern Elementary School fifth grade teams at Eastern.

    “I think we have a great shot at winning the competition,” Jordan Lewellen, an HCMS eighth grader said.

  • Starting next week, the news will cost you another quarter

    In 1992, the average cost of a gallon of gas was $1.05. Remember that?

    In 1992, the average cost of a new car was $16,950. The cost of a first class stamp was just 29-cents.

    And in 1992, the Local started out costing 35-cents, and didn’t yet have full color on any page.

    Since then, a lot about the Local has changed. And next week, you’ll notice a change we haven’t made in 17 years.

    For the first time since September 1992, the price of the Local will go up a quarter to 75-cents. That change takes effect next week.

    As they finish up their regular season this week, the Eminence Lady Warriors are staring at a giant.

    To open next week’s 30th district tournament, Eminence will host Anderson County.

    Staff report

    The Eminence Warriors picked up their first win of the 2009 season last week, defeating visiting Evangel Christian 4-3.

    Senior Michael Snell pitched the win for the Warriors, striking out 13, and picking up just five walks on three hits.

    According to Eminence coach Mark Payton, three Warriors had a total of four hits.

  • On the trail again

    It was a blend of old ways and new, patience versus impatience.

    As a wagon train of eight to ten mostly homemade wagons trundled south on U.S. 421 toward Turners Station Road, two vehicles swung out on a blind curve to pass the slower moving wagons, mules and horses.

    It didn’t seem to phase the wagon riders, however, who kept on at their steady pace.

    Earlier, the group gathered in the parking lot of the Campbellsburg Consignment Shop for a not-so-quick lunch of pizza and tall tales.

    Fire departments in Henry County are gearing up for another year of collecting money for the WHAS Crusade for Children.

    Campbellsburg Fire Chief David Noe said despite the major setback of a fire at the Campbellsburg firehouse recently, the department will conduct its charitable effort as usual. “We’re not going to miss a beat this year,” he said. “We’ll just have to work a little harder.”

  • Celebration KIDS a Huge Success!

    The Henry County CARE Team’s Celebration Kids committee would like to thank this great community for helping to make our annual Celebration Kids event a huge success. 

    In this time of economic uncertainty, we had anticipated having our work cut out for us, but we were pleasantly surprised by the very generous outpouring of support from local businesses, schools, agencies, churches and individuals who came through with the needed donations.

  • It’s time to celebrate Travel and Tourism week

    With Memorial Day in sight, and summer vacations on the horizon, now is the ideal time to celebrate what Governor Beshear has declared Travel and Tourism Week.

  • Thursday mornings with granny

    I look forward to Thursday mornings. This is the day I baby-sit my daughter’s two youngest children while she takes the three older girls to a home-schooling co-op at their church. For five hours I watch over Burt, age four and a half, and Mary, two. This is fun and interesting.

    Berry will head to the meet in Danville Saturday to take part in four events, including his specialty — high jump.
