  • 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

    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.

    For the first time in nearly four years, the Henry County Ladycats did not hold up the championship trophy of the North Central Kentucky Conference following the final contest of the seven-team, single-elimination style tournament.

    Henry — who won the NCKC in 2005, 2006 and 2007 — was defeated by Trimble County (7-6) last Wednesday in the semifinals, which left the Ladycats empty handed. Meanwhile, Trimble defeated Walton-Verona (5-2) in the finals to claim the title.

    The Eminence softball team took a 12-2 loss at Carroll County last Tuesday night, which dropped the Lady Warriors to 1-9 on the season with just two weeks remaining until the 30th District tournament.

    But the future is continuing to look promising as the freshman team, composed of middle school and freshman players, almost defeated Trimble County Thursday. The younger Lady Warriors were in front  8-6 heading into the final inning before they took a slim 9-8 loss. It showed Eminence what the future could hold.

  • Warriors' three-game winning streak comes with two forfeit wins

    The Eminence baseball team’s 7-4 win over Evangel Christian on April 23 sparked a three-game winning streak for the Warriors, though the Evangel victory remains the only legit win so far this season.

    Following the Evangel contest, Eminence earned forfeit victories over Louisville Collegiate the following day and Bethlehem High School a few days later. Statistically, it moved the Warriors ahead of last year’s 2-20 record.

  • Wildcats need a consistent bat, coach Hunsaker says

    In familiar fashion, the Henry County Wildcats relied on their pitching to keep them in two close baseball games last week, but their offensive output came up just shy as the Cats took back-to-back one-run losses.

    The Wildcats, who are on a three-game skid after winning 10 of 11 games, lost to Gallatin County (5-4) last Wednesday and Williamstown (4-3) Thursday, which left them at 12-6 with a few weeks remaining in the regular season.

    After a slow start, Eminence’s hard work is starting to pay off. Now, coach Steve Frommeyer hopes the team’s momentum will carry over for the rest of the season — accumulating with the Class A, Region 3 Championships the week of May 19 and the Kentucky State Track and Field Championships May 30-31.

    “Right now, our athletes are really excited about track, and it’s something I want to build off of,” Frommeyer said after his squad competed in the Carroll County All-Comers last Thursday afternoon.

  • EIS board member advances academy

    By law, Kentucky requires its local school board members to take annual professional development classes. But a member of the Eminence Independent Board of Education has gone beyond minimum mandates in state law, earning advanced certification in support of their work for this community’s children and public schools.
