    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.

    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.

    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.

  • Recession has many causes

    Early this month, the National Bureau of Economic Research confirmed what many of us have long suspected: That we are officially in a recession, and have been for a year.

    There is no doubt that it has been a tough time for our economy, but that doesn’t mean the news has been bad for every sector.  One of the brightest spots, in fact, has been our community banks.

  • EHS Warriors start with 1-2 record

    Led by Ed Berry’s 20 points-per-game average and Dre Banta’s 14.3 through the first three games of the season, the Eminence Warriors went 1-2 during their opening week.

  • The 5th Quarter returns!!!

    5th Quarter is a great activity if you enjoy hanging out with your friends, meeting new friends, eating pizza, and being encouraged to do better.   I’ve attended most of the 5th Quarter gatherings in the past and found them to be a good way to have fun with my friends following a Friday night home basketball game.  There were several activities for Henry County and Eminence high school students to participate in.  Those of us who enjoy playing basketball would divide up into teams and play against one another.  Others who were not into playing basketball took

  • Henry Countians pull together for those in need

    I have lived in this community for many years and have seen how people here pull together to help their neighbors and friends in times of need. I have also been witness to strangers taking time out of their day to lend a hand where a hand is needed. Henry Countians are blessed to be part of such a giving community. There are so many organizations, churches, and county services that are designed to help anyone in need. Tri-County Community Action Agency is one of those organizations designed to help individuals in need of assistance and we also service senior citizens in the county.

  • Perhaps it’s time for homemade gifts

    Seafoam Green. I’ll probably remember the name of that color until I’m old and grey.

    It was the color of yarn I used when my mother first taught me how to knit. That was somewhere in my formative years, probably before I hit the big 1-0.

    Over the years, I’ve remembered, and then forgotten, all she ever taught me, and inevitably, when she visits I ask the same question. “Okay, how do you cast on again?”

    But it was that first lesson that would result in a lifetime love for needlework.
