  • Thanks for support over the years

    After 25 years Mary and I have decided to close the retail operation of Barnett Lumber Company the end of the month. Along with Craig we will continue to operate the construction side of Barnett Lumber. We will continue to build new homes, churches, etc., including selling and installing kitchen cabinets.  I plan on slowing down and will be “Craig’s helper” with him taking the lead.

  • Stigmatizing the mentally ill creates barriers to treatment

    Like many others, I heard the initial news reports of the shooting in Tucson with a sense of profound sadness and déjà vu. I recalled a number of similar tragedies including the one not long ago at Virginia Tech.

  • New Congress must move forward with the priorities of the American people

    A positive start during the first few days of the 112th Congress took a tragic turn on Jan. 8 when Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (AZ-8) was attacked leaving her in critical condition, more than a dozen others injured and six dead. The shooting has shocked and saddened all Americans, who now pause to reflect on the violence and pray for the victims and their families.

  • Superintendents commend boards

    As superintendents of Eminence Independent and Henry County Public Schools, we are extremely proud of the students and teachers, the administrators and the service workers who are the heart and soul of our school systems. And we are also proud of the district leadership this community has put in place through the members of our boards of education.

  • Thanks for donations to Adopt-A-Grandparent

  • Christmas thief is a cheap soul

    Our family put a Christmas saddle/flowers on my dad’s grave on Christmas Day at the New Castle Cemetery. By the next morning it had been stolen. These were put on in memory of someone that we loved very much.  Yet was stolen by someone that was truly a heartless and soulless person. We have heard this happens every year to people, and it is truly a sad thing.  Our family hopes our hurt brought you and your family some happiness over the holiday. You truly are a sad and cheap soul.

  • Thanks to help with Nativity Scene

    The Bethlehem Living Nativity Committee would like to thank everyone who had a part in any way, in making this year’s portrayal of the birth of Jesus Christ another success. Many braved the cold and snowy weather to come stand, listen to the music and reflect on the real meaning of Christmas. This is a true testament to the faith you all have. May God bless you all.

  • HCIT a success

    First of all, thank you to our parents who worked numerous hours, brought food for our hospitality room and did what was necessary for our tournament to run smoothly.

  • Wow

    On Nov. 4, 2010, I was at home and became really sick and had to call Henry County EMS to transport me to the VA hospital where I was admitted to the hospital for about five days. After getting out of the hospital and being home a couple of weeks, I received a bill from Henry County EMS for $1,391. I was so surprised by the amount of this bill that my heart skipped a beat and I thought I was going to have to go back to the hospital.
