  • CEO students helping to weatherize homes

    General Manager

    During the coldest months, Eminence resident Ruth Staples sometimes resorts to sporting her bathrobe to stay warm. When it's really cold, she said, the bathroom of her small Eminence home is the warmest spot in the house.

    As thumps emanated from underneath her house, Ruth Staples, of Eminence, said she couldn't be more blessed. Students from the Center for Educational Options were weatherizing her home, and just in time for the hard winter months. Students working the home's crawlspace were securing fallen insulation back into place.

  • Thanks for help after accident

    I would like to say a special thanks to Mayor Jim Pettit, the guys at the community center, to the gentleman that helped me up after my fall, to the lady that put ice on my hand, to my son for coming to check on me, for the phone calls and concerns, to my granddaughters Kandice and Marcy, a special thanks to my friends Barbara and Scotty Owens for helping me to get home and all the phone calls, to my pastor, Sister Linda Morgan of Christ Open Door Church, for her phone calls and prayers. God bless each and everyone of you.

  • Buddy's Barbershop

    General Manager

    Marion Earl "Buddy" Mobley sat quietly in the easy chair of his shop, flipping through pages of a newspaper.

    A customer, who had left minutes before walked through the door again, this time to pay Mobley for his haircut.

    "I've been in the barbering business 55 years and never been beat out of a haircut yet, Mobley said.

    Later, a young man walked in, and asked Mobley if he knew how to do a fade.

    "Yeah, I know how to do that, he responds.

  • Thanks to all for help in Sydney Alveys recovery

    It has been almost one year since Sydney's tragic accident changed our lives forever. Although we have faced many challenges, the past 12 months have been filled with as much laughter as tears. We are so thankful for the recovery Sydney continues to make and we know none of it could have been possible without the love, prayers, support and generosity of family, friends, neighbors and strangers.

  • HCIT in action

    If you build it, they will come.

    I'm not talking about a baseball diamond in the middle of a corn field - like in the 1989 film Field of Dreams - but a high school basketball gym in the middle of New Castle. Long before the movie was released, before Kevin Costner became a household name and before the if-you-build-it line became a catch phrase, there was a gymnasium built.

    And after it was built, they did come.

  • Shorthanded Warriors no match for Restoration Christian

    The Eminence Warriors were without their head basketball coach, two starters and first player off the bench last Friday night at Restoration Christian School in Sellersburg, IN.

    And it showed on the court as the Warriors took an 87-34 loss and dropped their overall record to 1-5.

    Eminence starters Nelson Hedges and Dallas Roberts missed the game, along with six-man Brock Roberts. Keith Blackburn was also absent on the sideline after receiving two technical fouls the previous outing.

  • Martin not worried about scoreboard in team's 0-6 start

    The Eminence Lady Warriors dropped three more basketball games last week, which gave them a 0-6 start to the 2007-08 season and 50 losses in the previous 52 tries.

    But coach Carter Martin, who took over the struggling program a year ago, isnt concerned with the win-loss columns right now. Instead, hes concerned with the squad getting better, and prepping the young team for games down the road.

    "The scores might not indicate what the team is learning," Martin said, "but from a coaching perspective, I see a little bit of improvement each game, which is a good thing."

  • Wildcats earn first district win ... 68-57 over Carroll

    For the first time this season, the Henry County Wildcats played with intensity all four quarters last Tuesday night against the visiting Carroll County Panthers. And in the end, it led to a 68-57 win over Carroll in the Wildcats' opening home game of the season.

    Henry put three players in double figures - Cody Hinkle with 23 points, Cari Dunaway with 13 points and Ben Roberts with 10 points - and forced Carroll into 21 turnovers in the up-and-down game. The Wildcats were ahead by as many as 21 points late in the third quarter, and cruised in for the 11-point victory.
