  • Progress being made in energy conservation

    Over the last several years, the General Assembly has re-doubled its efforts to make Kentucky a leader in energy production and conservation.

    This process has evolved with the successful passage of House Bill 1 and House Bill 2, which include new rounds of tax incentives to boost alternative fuel sources and to encourage homes and businesses alike to curb their power needs. Legislators have also invested millions of dollars to further clean-coal research, and we have pushed to make state government’s buildings and automotive fleet more environmentally friendly.

    When John Roberts had trouble using his hands the doctor said he suffered from carpal tunnel syndrome.

    When his vision blurred, a detached retina was blamed. When Roberts, of Eminence, had difficulties with his balance doctors diagnosed an inner ear condition. The worst was when doctors said he’d had a stroke.

  • Sewer contract oversight to be corrected

    General Manager

    A 14-year oversight in a waste water treatment agreement will be corrected in 2009, as the City of Eminence will increase waste water treatment rates for the City of Pleasureville.

    Pleasureville, however, has said it will not pass that rate increase along to its customers.

    The agreement was signed in 1994 between the two cities, and initially was subject to review every two years. That review process fell through the cracks.

  • Thanks to local support, exercise was a success

    The full scale exercise at Safety-Kleen on Oct. 4 was very successful and involved all emergency personnel including Fire/Rescue departments, EMS, Sheriff’s Office, KSP and Coroner’s office with employees of the plant acting as victims of an explosion. We also had an excellent exercise at Homestead Nursing Center on June 21 which simulated a boiler explosion and also involved Fire/Rescue, EMS and Henry County Sheriff’s office in the evacuation of residents and staff of that facility. Both events had good media coverage by the Henry County Local.

  • Celebrate Thanksgiving with Harvest Community Church

    President Abraham Lincoln wrote in part of his Thanksgiving Proclamation   “…I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens.”

  • Vaughn sticks through five years

    With the noise from the crowd packed inside Toyota Stadium blaring in the background, sophomore Craig Vaughn jogged out onto the field. It was his third season at Georgetown College — he red-shirted his first year in the program — and this kick return against Cumberland University would mark his first action in an actual varsity game.

  • I’m thankful for ... tofu pumpkin pie?

    It started kind of innocently.

    I was rolling right along in the kitchen one Thanksgiving a couple of years ago, and was working on the pumpkin pie.

    I was putting the filling and a special ingredient in the blender when Derek walked in.

    “Why are you putting tofu in the pumpkin pie???” he asked, more than a little repulsed by the concept. You see, he doesn’t care much for tofu, while I love it.

    “Trust me.”

    You see, as a sufferer of IBS (I’ll let you look that up), I have trouble with dairy products - sometimes.

  • Drawbaugh resigns coaching position

    Sports Editor

    After three seasons as the head coach for the Henry County High School cross-country team, Ricky Drawbaugh has recently decided to resign his position. Drawbaugh might coach track this spring but will definitely not be back for cross next fall or track the following year.

    “It was not an easy decision. The biggest factor in my resignation was my family,” said Drawbaugh, who is married and has a 16-month-old daughter. “I will miss working with the kids. The team will be fine, though.”
