    Sports Editor

    For the first time since Scott McClamroch has been coaching the Eminence cross-country team, the Warriors won’t be in unfamiliar territory when they line up for their regional-championship meet this Saturday in Danville. Now, he hopes that will translate to an above-average performance for his young but improving squad.

  • Support Pauline “Polly” Troxell

    I am writing today in support of Polly Troxell for Eminence City Council. I do not live in the City of Eminence therefore I cannot cast a vote for Polly on November 4. However, I do work with Polly on a daily basis at the Henry County Senior Enrichment Center. Polly devotes numerous volunteer hours to the Senior Center and to the senior citizens of Eminence and Henry County. She cares about people and about doing the right thing. If elected she would serve the city of Eminence very well. Polly is dedicated to helping people in any way that she can.

    Don’t let the quick, bright smile, small stature, or the fact that she’s a girl fool you. Lance Corporal Melissa Kendall of Cropper is a leatherneck — a U.S. Marine.

    As a field MP — or military police — she provides convoy and explosive ordnance disposal security in the deserts of Iraq. “I’m comfortable with my job,” she said.

  • High expectations

    General Manager

    It’s a basic philosophy — give students high expectations, and they will work to meet them.

    “I think the general culture of high expectations works very well in our favor, and keeps everybody focused and working,” Eminence Middle and High School principal Steve Frommeyer said.

    Those expectations are reflected in some of the school’s grading policies — the no D policy, and what is soon to be the no C policy.

  • Former magistrate wants to set the record straight

    I would like to set the record straight regarding the recent controversial letters to the Editor concerning the Eminence Fire Department building a new firehouse.

    Back in January I contacted Congressman Geoff Davis’s office concerning any possibility of any USDA Rural Development First Responder/Community Facilities Grants being available. I was told by, Tami Wilson, in Congressman Davis’s office that she did not believe the Eminence Fire Department was eligible for a grant under this funding, but she would plan to investigate.

  • Candidate asks for your support

    With the election less than a week away, I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself and to announce my candidacy for City Council of Eminence. Many of you may already be familiar with me and my family through the volunteer work that we have done since returning  to Eminence six years ago.

  • Be wary of Team Gingrich

    I’ve heard that “all it takes for evil to prevail, is for good people to do nothing.” What Eminence needs to know before they vote on Tuesday is that (Manda) Gingrich’s entire purpose for running is to hopefully gain control of four city council seats. This would create a quorum on the council and stack every vote in favor of their agendas. Manda Gingrich, Leo Mason, Rochelle (Shelley) Summerlin and Glenn Simpson are running in tandem with each other and in protest to our mayor and council.

    I have four main issues with “Team Gingrich”.
