  • Ladycats break skid with 'big' win over Owen County

  • Thanks for help with cafeteria project

    I first moved here in May 2007 to live with my uncle George and aunt Lee Ann. They live in Eminence. My little brother and I had already been here on visits. You see we knew we were moving here because my mother had terminal cancer. She wanted us to feel comfortable as we could before we came on a permanent basis. She died June 27, 2007. Our world seemed to turn upside down. I have never felt so lost. I started school in August at Eminence as an eighth grader.
