    Becky Roberts of Eminence was so pumped for another evening of bidding and buying, she showed up at Mike Shaw’s auction house by 2:30 Thursday afternoon. The auction started at 6 p.m.

    Roberts admits she is hooked.

    “I’ve bought a refrigerator, a great front-loading washer/dryer set, dishes,” she said, “and I got a gorgeous organ last week.” To the obvious question, oh do you play, she answered ... “well, no.”

    General Manager

    One month after agreeing to step up enforcement of the speed limit on Lou Avenue, the Eminence City Council voted to up the street’s speed limit.

    Set at 15 miles per hour more than one year ago, the council set the street’s limit at 25 miles per hour during its meeting last week.

    A representative from the housing authority, Glenda Lucas, wrote a letter to the council requesting the limit be increased from 15 to 25.

  • Quality of play much better in third year of program

    With a year of varsity play behind them, the Henry County Ladycats have the soccer program headed in the right direction.

    The Ladycats started a junior varsity team from scratch two years ago, transitioned to the varsity level last fall, and are back with more quality players going against a much tougher schedule. With just 17 players listed on the roster, including 15 sophomores, every player fills a key role and is vital to the team’s success as the season progresses.

  • Ladycats look to get back to top of the 28th District

    Since the program began in 1999, the Henry County volleyball team has more players and more seniors on this year’s roster than any previous season. And Jon Kasten, who has coached all but the first two years, hopes that means an even better season than the impressive 2008 campaign.

  • From the Sideline

    Players to watch

    Erick Butler: The Henry County senior spent most of last season on the sideline with injuries but should be at full strength this season. Two years ago, the linebacker was named to the All-District Team and All-State Honorable Mention. He will be the centerpiece to a can’t-miss-squad this year.

  • Henry cross aiming towards state meet in November

    Minus the few years when he was the Henry County girls’ basketball coach in the early 2000s, Greg Woods has been the head or assistant coach for Henry’s cross-country team each year since 1989. This fall, after taking the program over from Ricky Drawbaugh, Woods is back in the head position for the first time since 2006.

  • Warriors have the right attitude this year, coach says

    The Eminence cross-country team has the talent, the numbers and the right attitude this fall.

    Head coach Scott McClamroch hopes that translates to the best season since he came on board as the head coach in 2000.

    The Warriors have nine high schoolers listed on their roster, five middle schoolers and three fifth graders. Add into the mix the attitude and a hard-working group of runners, and the ingredients are ripe for a successful year.
