  • Warriors lose opener to Frankfort

    The Eminence Warriors opened their season at home on Friday and fell to the Frankfort Panthers 10-5. The young Warriors showed much improvement over last season both offensively and defensively in their debut. The Panthers beat the Warriors 11-1 in five innings last season.

    The game started poorly for the Warriors as Frankfort hit a home run on the second pitch of the game and went on to add three more runs in the inning.

  • Warriors drop two to open the season

    The Eminence Warriors opened the season with two home games last week. On Thursday night the young Warrior squad fell to Carroll County 15-0 and Friday Whitefield Academy defeated them 17-0.

    Coach Jerry Martin is trying to build the team almost from scratch and is attempting to set the tone of playing winning softball first.

    “We have to get rid of the defeatist attitude first,” Martin said. “We had some kids who expected to get beat before we went on the field. We should never accept defeat until it happens.”

  • State legislators want to work for your benefit

    If the state’s budget is the most important legislation that the General Assembly approves every two years, enacting the state’s road plan is a close second.

    As with the budget, the goal is to find the best use for a limited amount of resources.  This is an area where Kentucky generally gets high marks, however, based on an annual national study by the Reason Foundation that ranks the quality of each state’s highway system.  We came in 14th overall last year, with no state having a better quality of rural interstates.
