    Submitted by Julie Mann

    You may have already noticed the blue ribbons that have began to appear around our community. This is the special time of year set aside to raise awareness for the plight of children who suffer from abuse and neglect.

    The first proclamation declaring the month of April as National Child Abuse and Prevention Month was signed by President Ronal Reagan in 1985. The campaign gained momentum in the spring of 1989 when grandmother, Bonnie Finney of Norfolk, Virginia took on the cause as a personal campaign.

    General Manager

    A slightly consternated Danny Meadows acknowledged Monday night that differences of opinion on the Eminence swimming pool have caused tensions within his own home.

    The council member and his teenage son, Craig, don't see eye to eye on the issue.

    After a 4-2 vote to not enter into a contract with Our Backyard Leisure Specialties for repair work on the city's pool, Meadows summed up what several on the council seemed to be thinking. "Can we now start at the beginning and do this the correct way?"

  • Cozy Cuts now open seven days a week

    "I am very appreciative of my dedicated customers and I always look forward to meeting those who aren't a familiar face," Hancock said.

  • Money could be put to better use

    This pool issue has been something that our family and community has now heard of and been listening to for quite some time now. During the last city elections for Mayor and Council members, we had quite a few prospects, and current members stop by our home. The only constant issue that any of them talked about, was the pool. They all mentioned there was a great need for something for our young people to do in this city, let alone county.

  • Pool is definitely needed

    It is so easy to forget just how much a pool is needed when the temp outside is so cold. But as the high heat of the summer kicks in, you will remember just why it was there. With gas prices as high as they are, people are tending to stay closer to home. Where will we go?

  • Pool appeals to all ages

    "The worst things in history have happened when people stop thinking for themselves, especially when they allow themselves to be influenced by negative people. That's what gives rise to dictators. Avoid that at all costs. Stop it first on a personal level, and you will have contributed to world sanity as well as your own."

    We believe Donald Trump said it best.

    In their first full week of baseball games due to the inconsistent and unpredictable weather, the Henry County Wildcats are riding a four-game winning streak.

    During the Male Spring Break Tournament, the Cats lost to Male (5-1) last Monday, rolled past Muhlenberg South (9-1) Tuesday and defeated Seneca (5-1) Wednesday.
