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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
