  • Thanks to EPD and HCSO for show of respect

    Thanks to the Eminence Police and Henry County Sheriff's Department for the professional way they escorted Sam's funeral to Eminence. They honored him by bowing their heads as we came out of the funeral home and continued at every turning point.

    This showed our family respect and how well he was thought of. Several comments were made on a very organized and professional job. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

    Family Dollar, the national discount retailer based in Charlotte, N.C., will open its Eminence store Mar. 6, a corporate spokesperson said last week.

    Family Dollar's new Eminence location is part of a corporate strategy aimed at growing the store's customer base, Public Relations Manager Josh Braverman said.

  • Create a place for skate boarders to go

    I am writing in response to the article on banning skate boards. The activities for our children in New Castle are limited. If the children are skate boarding instead of selling drugs on our streets than why are we taking away their enjoyment?

    We as our children's leaders must look for other ways to fix this solution. We do not have to build an extravagant skate board park such as downtown Louisville, but what about building an area such as the one in LaGrange?

  • Canine crackdown?

    Landmark News Service

    Brownie appeared apologetic Monday as he circled his small crate at the Kentucky Humane Society in Eminence. The 4-year-old, tri-colored Shepherd mix occasionally stuck his wet nose nose between the chain links, accepting the punishment for a crime he didn't commit alone. Brownie was found unattended at a gas station near New Castle and delivered to the shelter by animal control. There, he awaits adoption.

    Brownie is just one example of a growing dog problem that one local council may soon address.

  • Don't worry: 8th Region still a go at HCHS despite concerns

    When thinking about the boys' 8th Region basketball tournament, memories flood my head like waves crashing onto shore. I can still remember the cold air after finally finding a place to park up the road towards New Castle; the screams from the crowd as I entered Henry County's ginormous gym; and the excitement that was generated around the horse-shoe shaped bleachers.

    I would yell during all the games, go home and write down my all-tournament team, then play on my Nerf basketball goal long into the night.

  • Cats never trail, up by as many as 28 in 15-point win

    Henry County and Eminence met on the basketball court for the final time this season Friday night, and the outcome was the same as the previous three times the two rival schools played - a Henry win.

    When the dust cleared inside Roy L. Winchester Gym, 10 different Henry players had scored, while just four Eminence players managed to chip in points, and the Wildcats came away with a 59-44 victory over the visiting Warriors. The Cats went in front less than 10 seconds into the game and were never seriously challenged as they got up by as many as 28 points and never trailed.

  • Showdown in New Castle

    Fittingly, Henry County senior Jean-Anne Moore gave the Henry County Ladycats just the spark they needed to distance themselves from Eminence in Friday's showdown against the visiting Lady Warriors.

    Moore, the only senior for Henry, scored 12 points, pulled down numerous rebounds and provided an inside presence, which allowed the Ladycats to come away with a 69-16 win on Senior Night. It was the most points Henry had scored all season, which came shortly after Moore was congratulated before her final home game.
