  • New lawn equipment dealer is on the ‘cutting edge’

    A Defoe business owner plans to use his skills working on heavy equipment to provide cutting edge sales and service for lawn care needs.
    Marlin Miller’s original plan involved opening a custom welding and equipment repair shop, but he then heard from neighbors in Defoe they needed someone who could provide dependable service for their mowing equipment.
    As a result of that input, Miller recently opened Cutting Edge Farm and Lawn at 9160 Castle Highway, where he will offer sales and service equipment.

  • Fletcher will always have a seat at C-burg council

    Jan Fletcher will continue to have a seat at Campbellsburg City Council as colleagues decided to honor the former mayor’s many contributions.
    Fletcher, who served as an elected city official for more than 12 years, died in February, and fellow Council member David Gray suggested a way to remember him at the March 19 city meeting.

  • Schools aid homeless students

    Homeless children are everywhere — even in Henry County. Local schools continue trying to make sure their hardships aren’t compounded by those children missing out on class, too.
    Educators say 22 of Henry County Public School young people are homeless, while 93 out of 377 students in Eminence Independent Schools are without fixed, regular and adequate nighttime lodging, the key measure of homeless youth. Once a child is determined homeless, aid kicks in — shelter assistance, clothing and food donations, counseling, job placement for adults and economic education for the families.

  • Grand jury indicts fugitive in March chase

    Even though he remains at large after leading police on a high-speed pursuit March 9, a 26-year-old Smithfield man has been indicted by the Henry County grand jury based on the incident.
    Zachary D. Ethington allegedly fled after Campbellsburg’s police officer, Tony Rucker, got behind a white sedan and turned on his blue lights for an ordinary traffic stop.
    Rucker had noticed that neither the male driver nor the female passenger were wearing their seatbelts at the time.

  • Two more flooring stores expand in Eminence

    H&H Flooring
    The owners of H&H Flooring, the Hannas, have operated their family business in Eminence for five years, while keeping a relatively low profile while they concentrated on work.
    But the owners have invited the community to a grand opening May 12 at 11 a.m. when they christen their new storefront at 128 Eminence Terrace, close to the Henry County Public Library.
    “We’re expanding our existing business,” Tori Hanna, co-owner, said. She hopes to get to know more Henry County residents at the opening.

  • Hot Rods & BBQ opens in C-burg

    Customers at Hot Rods & BBQ in Campbellsburg do a double take when owner Joe Wieland provides the service instead of Ben and Dana Freeman, the former proprietors of Freeman’s Kountry Korner Kafe.
    Wieland owns the business on U.S. 421 as of February and long-time friend Bobby Smith manages the comfort food restaurant and bar.
    But if people want to visit the Freemans, they aren’t far away. On occasion, they will occupy a booth in the eatery, but the Freemans still have plenty of work to do next door at First and Last Liquors.

  • Mystical Feeling

    There’s a mystical feeling when a preacher can connect with the congregation, a feeling Rev. Michael Duncan has experienced many times while in the pulpit at Eminence Baptist Church.
    But after 38 years as the church’s pastor, Duncan will step down April 8. He and wife Donna won’t stray too far as they’ve made Eminence their home.
    Though Duncan had expectations of taking up another pulpit in the past, after their arrival on Nov. 1, 1979, no other congregation could pull him away. Looking back, Duncan’s not certain if he could enjoy a connection with members of another church as he has here.
