  • Head of the Class - 5 EIS teachers earn certification

    Landmark News Service

    In a grueling one-year process, five Eminence Independent teachers found they - like their students - have many lessons to learn. All achieved National Board Certification, a rigorous multi-faceted process that gives them one of the highest teaching distinctions in the nation.

    "This is a great staff," said Eminence Principal Dr. Steve Frommeyer, of all the district's teachers. And all the teachers being certified demonstrates this."

  • Thanks to all for help in making pool vote possible

    A special thanks goes to the Eminence City Council for their Jan. 14, unanimous vote, to reopen the swimming pool. They also created a pool commission to oversee the repairs and operation.

    Also, special thanks goes to the parents of the children of Eminence and Henry County for signing petitions (more than 700 signatures), for attending three Making Waves meetings (average attendance 50), numerous phone calls and letters and volunteering for fundraisers. This exceptional community support has made all the difference to the city council.

  • Are we really free?

    Everyone's screaming free country, freedom. Others scream smoke free. If it's a free country why does everything cost so much. I could never figure out what we are free from. Some say the military is fighting for freedom. One hundred years later they are still saying they are fighting for freedom. What an excuse to kill foreign people. Some days it feels like house arrest. There's only so far you can go because it either cost too much or you run out of land. It seems that the way everything is going they don't find a way to charge us for the air we breathe.

  • To tell you the truth, I didn't like it

    One thing I've never been particularly fond of are game shows.

    Sure, I had a few when I was growing up that I couldn't quite get enough of - the Price is Right, Press Your Luck, Wheel of Fortune and the big kahuna, Jeopardy. While I still enjoy the periodic bout of Jeopardy, for the most part I've left game shows behind me.

    But after my favorite of shows last week, American Idol, I caught one that defies categorization.

    The Moment of Truth is yet another display of just what some folks will do to themselves all in the name of winning a little cash.

  • Head of the Class - 4 HCPS teachers earn certification

    General Manager

    In a never ending quest for professional development, four Henry County Public Schools teachers took their careers to new heights as they earned their National Board Certification.

    The year long, two-part process requires the teachers to think more about how they teach.

  • Showdown in Eminence

    In a battle for county bragging rights, the Henry County Ladycats never trailed against Eminence High School Friday night, pulling away to a lopsided 46-9 road victory in the first showdown between the two schools this season.

    The young squads have just one senior each in Henry's Jean-Anne Moore and Eminence's Kelli Hawkins, no juniors and rosters full of sophomores, freshmen and middle schoolers. So for the players on both sides, it was bragging rights for years to come.

  • Baughman: at 70, a true inspiration

    It's a bit unusual for a farmer to also be a tennis player, especially back in the 1950s. But that's exactly how Henry Baughman, who now lives in Smithfield, started out.

    It was Sunday afternoons when the youngster would watch his dad play a few matches in Danville. Then, the family built an asphalt court right on their own farm - a resemblance to the 1989 movie Field of Dreams.

    The Baughmans played as often as they could, but between milking cows and going to school, it wasnt nearly as much as young Henry would have liked.

  • Miss Kentucky finalist has Henry County ties

    General Manager

    Though the newly crowned Miss Kentucky 2008, Alysha Harris, has ties to Henry County - Harris spent some of her younger years in the county and has relatives here - another finalist in the pageant calls the county home.

    Chelsey McGlothin, of Sulphur, was the fourth runner-up in the pageant that serves as a qualifier for the Miss USA pageant.

    Unlike the Miss USA pageant, the Miss Kentucky pageant has no qualifying pageant. McGlothin said there is an application process, however.
