    Staff writer/photographer

    At 90 years of age, Foster Robinson listened attentively to Kentuckiana Regional Planning and Development Agency Driver Safety instructor, Glenn Woods’ advice on observing your surroundings when you are behind the wheel.

    “You don’t want to develop tunnel vision when you drive,” he said. “You want to keep moving your eyes back and forth.”

    Staff writer/photographer

    There were elves aplenty in Suzanne Cates second grade class last week.

    Cates’ 20 students split into groups of four, cheerfully working on their Giving Back Project  — helping to fill the needs of some local charitable organizations.

  • Need information

    Need information

    I am writing in hopes that someone in the county can help me locate some information.  I am looking for any information on a Charles Dorman Powell.

    He married an Ann Coghill of New Castle in the mid to late 1940s.  I know he had a sister by the name of Barbara and one, maybe two brothers.  I am also looking for any information on a William or Albert Rudd that lived/owned farms on Fallen Timber Road in the 50’s.

  • Get a personal touch with the Christmas Cachet

    In this fast paced, hurry up and get it done kind of world we live in, you can do just about anything without having to acknowledge another human being. Humor me, if you will, as I demonstrate a typical scenario:

    General Manager

    The Eminence man charged with setting a fire that destroyed his father’s auto-parts store has died.

    Michael G. Wells, 46, was found dead in his home Dec. 13, less than a week after he was indicted on charges related to the Aug. 30  fire that destroyed the Eminence Auto Parts/NAPA store.

    Preliminary autopsy results were inconclusive, and Henry County Coroner Jimmy Pollard said foul play is not suspected. He said toxicology results would be available in six to eight weeks.

  • Chili parlor makes good use of garden veggies

    “It may be cold outside, but it’s chili in here,” could be the advertising hook for Hollingsworth’s Chili House and Diner just west of Campbellsburg.

  • 10th anniversary of tobacco settlement passed with little fanfare

    10th anniversary of tobacco settlement passed with little fanfare

    It didn’t receive a lot of fanfare, but late last month marked the 10th anniversary of the $206 billion dollar settlement between the states and the major tobacco companies.

    As many of you may know, Kentucky chose an innovative path for its portion of the money.  In 2000, the General Assembly set aside half for agriculture and half for programs to help our youngest and sickest citizens.

  • Eminence student raises money for dog vest

    Staff writer/photographer

    On Dec. 9, Eminence Middle School eighth grader Curtis Barrett presented a bullet-proof vest to the Shelbyville Police Department at an assembly in the school gymnasium.

    Although not normally an out of the ordinary event, this vest was presented by a teenager to a dog.

    Barrett met the beneficiary of the vest — German shepherd police dog Borys — under unusual circumstances.

  • Grief support options are available

    Staff writer/photographer

    Margaret Hayden said she wants to accentuate the positive this holiday season.

    “I hope people will make a list of things that make them happy,” she said. “Joy and happiness come from within.” Hayden, who leads a grief support group at Henry Christian Church, said she will hand out cards to members of the group she started two years ago at the church. “People can fill them out with things they’re thankful for,” she said.
