  • Henry County's generosity is appreciated

    Operation Christmas Child collected 1,511 shoe boxes from the greater Henry County area.

  • Santa will be visiting Henry County after Eminence's Light Up Celebration

    I am a bit upset with the inaccuracy reported in an article in last week’s edition about my apperances in Henry County. Yes, Santa Claus will be at the Eminence Light Up Celebration on Dec. 1.

    * fainting

    * dizziness

The Senior Class of 2008 and I would like to invite you to join us in supporting troops who are serving overseas.
