  • Family answers letter to God

    Landmark News Service

    Cameron Rice considers it a once-in-a-lifetime thing. But really, in how many lifetimes does a letter addressed to God come floating down out of the sky?

    He was riding in his father’s truck when he saw a cluster of balloons floating around the Village Green Kroger shopping center. He thought someone had lost their balloons. His father, Brad, stopped the truck and Cameron, 7, jumped out in the middle of traffic to grab them.

    He saw on the outside it was labeled, “To: God, please help us save our home.”

  • Tough times driving many to local food pantry

    General Manager

    As the cost of oil, and therefore gasoline continue to climb, many families find themselves scraping by for basic necessities, including food.

    One local support agency has reported a 20 percent increase in the number of families requesting help.

    Eminence Christian Church pastor Sharon Fields said the tough economic times may be leading families to the Eminence Council of Churches Food Pantry in increasing numbers.

  • Visitors from a world away get a taste of education, the Henry County way

    General Manager

    P.J. Steffen eagerly read from his assignment book to the closest visitor, but she could do little more than smile and pat him on the head, as she couldn’t understand him.

    The visitor, along with nine others, hailed from the Ternopil region of the Ukraine, and spoke no English.

    The visitors were on hand in Henry County Monday to learn a little more about the American Educational system. Their trip was sponsored by the World Affairs Council of Kentucky/Southern Indiana.

  • EHS senior projects are underway

    There are many other worthy projects in addition to the senior projects showcased in the paper lately. All Eminence students not only must learn something new and valuable for their future, they must perform a service through this learning, “in an endeavor to teach our students to be better citizens,” stated Cara Puckett, senior sponsor. They learn a great deal as they organize a community event and they also learn to give back to the community. Below are some recent events that seniors organized.

  • Thanks for attending anniversary party

    Betty and Jerry Chilton and their children thank everyone who attended their 50th anniversary party or sent their blessings. I know my father especially enjoyed the occasion. Since his stroke in 1999, he has been unable to ambulate very well. I want to especially thank Barbara and Glen Gregory for attending. He too has had health issues in the last decade. Glen has been battling cancer and other ailments associated with this disease but thankfully is cancer free. I am glad he was well enough to attend. Our family received over $400 in cash gifts for Relay For Life.

  • Take a trip through time

    As time continues to fly by, many of us have made the comment, “I really would like to go to (fill in the blank with your favorite dream).” One thing we all know is that if we don’t go ahead and realize our dream, we may never have the opportunity to experience the wonders of travel.

    Even in Henry County we have a travel agent who is ready to help us use that time we have left to create a once (or twice or more) experience. Take the Time Travel, located in Lockport, will help you get it all together at a reasonable price.

  • Politics will ruin Eminence

    Eminence Politics are what is wrong with Eminence. Take for instance, the swimming pool. The people that spoke against the pool were all over 40 and had no children that could benefit from the use of the pool. There were two previous mayors and three previous council members who spoke against the pool. Those were the ones in charge when the pool was mismanaged and caused it to close. Those were the people that let it set for six years and never did anything about it.

  • Ending one career, beginning another

    Sports Editor 

    Watching from the sideline, Jon Kasten has seen Kaitlyn Foree throw thousands of pitches in a Henry County uniform. Strikes, balls and everything between. Kasten in the dugout and Foree in the pitcher’s circle — the way it’s been since Kasten took over the head coaching duties in 2004 and Foree moved into the spotlight as the team’s No. 1 pitcher in 2006.
