  • Our thanks to you

     

    The five board members of the Eminence Independent Schools and the five board members of the Henry County Board of Education oversee budgets, make tough decisions, maintain the upkeep of our schools, and ensure academic excellence for all students. They also make it a priority that each individual child, in the Henry County and Eminence Independent district, gets what he or she needs to successfully learn in school and beyond. All that is done in the face of shrinking state and federal dollars for education.

  • Announcing candidacy

    Hello, my name is Shanda Scriber Archer, and I am writing to inform you that I have filed as a Democratic candidate for the office of Henry County Clerk. The date of the primary election will be Tuesday, May 20, 2014.

    Although I know many of you, at this time I would like to briefly introduce myself and explain what brought me to this decision.

  • Standing out against fairness ordinance

    Standing out against fairness ordinance

    I want to thank Shawn Golden for vocally opposing the Fairness Ordinance as well as taking a stand for Christianity. I want to encourage all Christians to do what is right and fight for our families. Research for yourself the Fairness Ordinance of Kentucky and take a look at what it has done to other Christian businesses in our state.

    See what happened to this company.

  • Our Greatest Generation

    Our greatest generation

    Four weeks ago today I attended the memorial service for my uncle, Kenneth Bratton, a member of the greatest generation.

    Sixty nine years ago today he was fighting in the deadliest battle our nation had ever seen, the Battle of the Bulge. This battle resulted in over 85,000 US casualties, with over 19,000 dead.

  • A moral responsibility

    A moral responsibility

    The historic wrought iron fence, surrounding the Point Pleasant Cemetery that is located in a curve on KY 573, was silently removed last week. Its purpose had been to prevent speeding cars and weather related accidents from demolishing the tombstones. There seems to be no one in the community who witnessed it being taken down.

  • Scrap your idea

    I’m writing in regards to the Point Pleasant Cemetery in Bethlehem.

    This is an old graveyard, but people are still buried there quite often.

    There used to be an old iron fence around a big portion of it. Notice I wrote, “Used to be.”

    It sits in a very sharp curve off of KY 573. There’s been several wrecks there over the years and thanks to the fence it prevented a lot of damage to the cemetery and possibly a fatality.

  • A letter of thanks

    The players, parents and coaches of the Eminence Warriors’ youth football teams would like to thank those who supported our program this year. Our sponsors include Citizens Deposit Bank, Steel Technologies, Perry’s Hardware, Scriber’s Station on Elm, Eminence Speaker, Affordable Signs & Apparel, Prewitt’s, John Logan Brent, Lewis and Terri Laroche, and Wayne and Lou Gunnell. Your financial support provided the necessary equipment, uniforms and materials needed to allow these kids the opportunity to play football.

  • Thank you for FFA support

    I would like to thank each of the 373 people who made the voluntary donation to the ag tag program in 2013.  I know that it is not something that you have to do and the Henry County FFA appreciates it very much!
