  • Kudos to EPD for a job well done

    I would like to say thanks to Chief Carey Duncan and the entire (Eminence) Police Department for a job well done. Before you came to this town, it was impossible to get any sleep or to even watch T.V on weekends because of the parties, loud music and squealing tires. I had to move my bedroom to the back of the house but that didnt help. Now I can get my rest and feel safe. I've lived here for 30 years. I can honestly say Eminence is a good place to live. Thanks for the good work you do. You put your lives harms way each and everyday to protect and keep us safe.

  • Thanks for support of 2007 fall festival

    Eastern Elementary would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped with our 2007 Fall Festival. From all the businesses who donated food, items for our auction or money, to all of our many volunteers, to all of our parents, wonderful staff and students-thank you. We truly appreciate all of the hard work, dedication, time and support that was extended to us. Henry County is a great place to live and the Eastern Elementary family proves that every day.

    Our sincere thanks,

    Eastern Elementary PTO

  • Salute to veterans

    General Manager

    At times during Henry County High Schools Veterans Day Ceremony Friday morning, it was solemnly silent.

    The ceremony began with an unusual sound in the large gym - that of bagpipes as the school's JROTC cadets filed in.

    Larry Jeffries, who served in the U.S. Army from 1956 to 1959, was attending his third ceremony.

    "I can't get over how quiet they are," Jeffries said of the students watching the ceremony from the bleachers.

    The ceremony, he said, helps to heal hurt feelings for "all the ones who are not here."

    The Henry County High School class of '08 is collecting items for its sixth annual "Operation Henry County Cares" which provides a variety of supplies for soldiers stationed overseas.

    This year they've "adopted" 130 male and 37 female service members stationed in either Iraq, Afghanistan, or Kuwait; some of whom have a connection to the county.

    "This year is particularly special for us because two of the brigades we are supporting are being led by two Henry County graduates," said Judy Rice, Henry County High School Senior Sponsor.

  • Campbellsburg Christian Church welcomes new co-pastors

    Staff writer and photographer

    There is an immediate sense of warmth upon entering the household of Ben, 33, and Kristen, 30, Secaur. The scene is a bit chaotic but charmingly so, if that's possible. It's got an obvious familial feel with a friendly dog and two young girls scampering about the living room which is decorated with artwork, a coffee table and couch, and a few chairs as well as some toys scattered on the floor.

The Eagles took the lead early in the third quarter and pulled away to a 42-24 senior night win.

  • New Castle commission votes to pay repair bill out of F.D. budget

    Staff report

    In a three to one decision on Monday, the New Castle City Commission agreed that funding needed to repair a fire truck should come out of the fire department's budget rather than the city's general fund.

    Commission member Tim Royalty argued that the $1,500 in maintenance fees are the responsibility of the the Fire Department and not the City's, citing past city records which indicated that costs of this nature do not historically come from the city's budget.
