  • Historical Society starting 2008 season

    The Henry County Historical Society will begin the 2008 season with perhaps its most ambitious program to date. An exciting evening of color, drama, fun and history will all come together with the presentation of "Derby Through the Decades," a showing of vintage clothing from the very first Derby in the 1880s through the year 2000.

  • Trying times for Warriors

    The Eminence Warriors made history on the baseball diamond last Monday night - though it's not the kind they hope will land them a spot on the ESPN highlight show.

    In case you haven't heard, the Warriors took a lopsided 58-0 loss to Anderson County, which broke the Kentucky high school record for most runs scored in a single game, passing Powell County's 44 from 1986. And the 33 runs Eminence allowed during the first inning put Anderson at No. 2 in that category, trailing Middlesboro's 36 from 1984.

  • Let's think like adults, not children

    During the Eminence City Council meeting Monday night, two city council members were lauded for sticking to their guns and their original votes on the issue of the city's swimming pool.

    They should be commended. Sticking to one's beliefs in the face of a room full of folks with opinions on both sides of the issue is an admirable attitude.

    Landmark News Service

    Culture mavens gathered Saturday at an unassuming place: an old dairy barn, near New Castle.

    Inside, whitewashed walls faded the by-gone "milking memories" in this converted art gallery, and food and wine flowed freely. It's something that's become expected at any Smith-Berry Winery event, said guests.

    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.

  • Council pulls plug on pool project ... for now

    By Jonna Spelbring Priester

    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?"
