  • Eastern Students of the Month
  • YOCO poster contest winners

    Ms. Lund’s third grade class at Eastern Elementary School  was recently rewarded with an ice cream party for winning the Red Ribbon Week poster contest sponsored by Youth Coalition. For the Halloween-themed contest, Ms. Lund’s class created a poster covered in spiders with the slogan, “We’d rather eat bugs than do drugs!” Youth Coalition members that visited the students at Eastern this past week to provide the ice cream party were Madison Pittman, Mackenzie Pittman and Kennedy Fitzgerald (back row with Ms. Lund).

  • Eminence receives splash pad grant

    Eminence Mayor Drane Stephens announced last week that the city will receive a $42,000 matching grant from the state for a proposed splash pad water park.

    In April, the Eminence City Council applied for a Land and Water grant which would fund a water recreation area at the park. City officials are uncertain as to when they will be given the grant, but Stephens said in the meeting that the governor wanted to deliver him the check personally.

  • Obelisk is a reminder of uncivil days

    The marble obelisk in Eminence Cemetery serves as a reminder of the division between families and in the state so fiercely enforced as to blur the line of between soldier and guerilla.

    By 1864, Gen. Stephen Gano Burbridge of Georgetown secured himself in command as a Union general in Kentucky. Burbridge showed his aptitude as a leader during his successful victory against Confederate Gen. John Hunt Morgan at the Battle of Cynthiana.

  • The year of water

    As New Castle Public Works Director Scot Treece led a group of eighth grade students around the first lagoon at the waste water treatment plant, he pointed to garbage along the lagoon’s edge.

    “This is why you don’t flush certain things,” he said. “They end up here.”

    On the lagoon’s edge? A few toy cars. But mostly? It was plastic tampon applicators. Dozens, hundreds of them. Treece told the group he once found a dog leash.

  • Unveiling of stamp

    State Representatives Rick Rand and Tom Riner stand during the unveiling of a new stamp by Post Office Operations Manager Rosemary Miller and P.O. Marketing Manager Alisa Zanetti with District 5 Magistrate Michael Fisher.

  • HCHS students prepare for A Midsummer Night’s Dream

    Miranda Cisneros received her greatest compliment in the form of a rejection.

    The Henry County High School senior performs as Hermia in the high school’s production of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ by William Shakespeare. The play opens at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 29.

    Henry County High School and Middle School Vocal Music and Theater Director Russell Cooper didn’t cast Cisneros as Dorothy in the high school’s production of the Wizard of Oz and the experience has made her a better actress.
