    News Intern

    A Pendleton man lost his life and another was injured during a propane tank explosion at the C.A. Garner Veneer plant in Smithfield on May 31.

    Michael Guse, 50, and Rick DeBurger, both plant managers, were unloading a propane tank from DeBurger’s pick-up truck when they noticed a leak. Guse removed his shirt to shut the valve and the static electricity from the shirt ignited the tank, according to Guy Coombs, Lake Jericho Fire Department Chief. Guse died as a result of his injuries on June 5 at the University of Louisville Hospital.

  • Cicada Recipes

    Just like many of nature’s creations, even cicadas are edible. Here are a couple of recipes to make use of all those cicadas buzzing around.

    HOW TO DRY ROAST CICADAS

    Place cicadas on a cookie sheet and roast for 10 to 15 minutes at 225 degrees F. Cooking time will vary depending on size and water levels. Check your cicadas when you remove them from the oven. They should be a soft dry consistency, a bit like a nut. If they are still moist inside, they should be roasted for longer.

  • Thank you to a member of the Eminence City Council

    I would like to take this opportunity to say thanks to one of the Eminence City Council members. This member, in my opinion, is the type of person that understands his duty as a member of the Eminence City Council. I called him to see if he could help my family with a problem and he assured me that he would try and get it solved. When I hung up the phone I thought that he would get back with me in a few days but the very next day not only did he call me back, but he had already solved my problem. I know that this might seem small to some but it meant a lot to my family.

  • I'll be adventuring abroad in China

    “I’m going to China.” I love the responses that simple sentence elicits whenever someone asks me what I’m doing this summer. The most common response is the raised eyebrow look of surprise followed by the crooked smile and sidelong glance which seems to say, “Come on. Quit pulling my leg!” The next most common response is the, “oh, I guess you are into the Olympics huh?” Finally there is a more recent response that I hadn’t heard before: “missionary work, huh?”

  • Community, paper should be proud of baseball team

    I’m writing this letter to the editor in hopes that many of your readers will see this and better appreciate the accomplishments of this year’s Henry County High School baseball team. As a parent and a fan I was anticipating a wonderful, positive and encouraging headline and a picture of “our” team in “our” Henry County Local after playing in the Regional baseball finals.
