  • ‘I blame the message’

    Our President-elect Barack Obama must be excited because he can start hanging out in public with Bill Ayers and Rev. Jeremiah Wright again. John McCain is a winner because he can resume buying more homes. And we are all winners because we will never again have to hear McCain say, “my friends.”

    In the aftermath of the Scott High School game Friday night, which Henry County lost 69-12 giving up 42 first-half points and 476 yards on the ground, the Wildcats are trying to get back that winning spark that saw them dominate their first four games of the season and win five of their first six.

  • Shelbyville Fit for Life isn’t ‘one-size-fits-all’

    “Pumpkin Pie Burner” is not, in this case, your mother-in-law’s nickname for your first attempt at cooking Thanksgiving Dinner. It’s the name of a free workout class the day after Thanksgiving for members of Shelby Fit For Life.

  • Election 2008 may be the most important

    I just returned from taking matters into my own hand.  I did so by exercising my right and privilege to vote as a citizen.  I can’t remember a time when I didn’t understand the importance of voting.  As a child, I observed my parents sorting through the various campaign promises and platforms of local, state, and national office seekers.  With them, I watched TV coverage of the national conventions and read newspaper and magazine articles about the candidates.  I even plastered my bicycle with bumper stickers in support of my choice for president.

  • Now it’s time to exhale, get to work

    When I finally left the office on election night, the election hadn’t yet been called in Barack Obama’s favor.

    The lights in the office were out, traffic on the road was nonexistent, and it was still.

    There was no wind, no road noise, just … quiet.

    There were few, if any clouds in the sky, and the stars twinkled vividly.

    I stood still in front of our door, enjoying the calmness, the quiet, the solitude.

  • A caring community

    General Manager

    On the desk in Zack Woods’ office at Henry County Middle School is a copy of a book about tsunamis.

    The same book is being read, or already has been, by a student at the school. Woods, the principal, and the student are taking part in a reading partnership program.

    “The kids like to talk about what they’re reading,” he said.

  • Armstrong to take last seat on council

    General Manager

    It all came down to a game of chance.

    Less than 24 hours after the polls closed, two women sat in the lobby of the Henry County Clerk’s Office waiting to see just which of the pair would go on to serve as the sixth member of the Eminence City Council.

    In the end, incumbent Treva Browning lost a coin toss to Elizabeth “LeeAnn” Armstrong, with Armstrong claiming the last seat on the council.

  • Thanks for help with Toy Run

    First and foremost we want to thank Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior for making this toy run a big success.  We serve an awesome God.

    A big thank you to all who were involved with the Henry County Toy Run.  Without all of your support this would not have been possible.

    We personally want to thank Henry County Local and Cindy DiFazio.  Cindy, you did an excellent job putting the story together about the toy run.
