  • There is no greater gift than the gift of hope

    At this time of the year our thoughts turn toward gifts and giving. However, there is no greater gift than the gift of hope. In our community there was someone who lost their job months ago. With no income and no immediate family, they in turn lost their electric, their water and relying on wood for heat, they were down to just seven sticks of firewood.

  • Every new year is a cause for celebration

    New Year’s Eve has never meant a huge celebration for my husband and me.

    We were married on Dec. 28, and our second daughter was born Dec. 27. Between those occasions and Christmas, we have never been much in the mood to party on New Year’s Eve. Still, for about 20 years when I was younger, I eagerly looked forward to Dec. 31, more than any other holiday.

  • Henry County boys 11th in 8th Region's first Litkenhous Rankings of the season; Eminence High boys 16th

  • This is the year I’ll stick to that resolution

    General Manager

    I’m terrible at keeping resolutions. But then, I imagine that most people are.

    Like many people, I’ve made a variety of New Year’s resolutions over the years. They’ve ranged from the standard resolutions to exercise more and lose weight to trying to get the dishes done at the end of each day.

    I came close to making it this year — I somewhat silently resolved to exercise more. A couple of weeks later, I took the first step toward that and bought a mini-stair stepping machine.

  • Warriors drop their final two games at Gallatin tourney

    The Eminence boys’ basketball team lost its final two games of the Gallatin Steel Invitational Monday and Tuesday to leave the invitational at 0-4 and 1-8 overall.

Since the opening win, the Warriors have now dropped eight straight.

  • Martin says team still improving

    Individually, the Eminence Lady Warriors are getting better, coach Carter Martin said after his team took a 28-24 loss to Silver Grove last Monday and a 41-22 loss to Dayton Tuesday to close out the Grant County Invitational.

    But as a team, they are still searching for their first win since winning their opener against Louisville Collegiate on Dec. 5. They have now dropped eight straight for a 1-8 start, including four games in the Gallatin Invitational.

    “We are getting better, and as long as we keep learning things every game I’m happy,” Martin said.

  • Looking back...

    While the rest of the sports world continued to make headlines daily with new contract extensions, championship events, wire-to-wire moments and jaw-dropping scandals, here in Henry County we celebrated our own success and also had our own setbacks.

    We raised our hands in triumph. We lowered our heads in defeat. There were firsts. There were lasts. And in the end, there was plenty to smile about.
