  • ‘Satan had got me’

    A Henry County man may face new charges in a sexual abuse case pending the investigation of three computer hard drives.

    Joseph David Martin, 38, of Turners Station, was arrested in 2011 and charged with having sex with an underage female who was 13 at the time the alleged crimes began. The alleged crimes took place over a three year period.

  • Lincoln Institute was like college

    Unlike many children, Jean Martin Hill went to the Lincoln Institute instead of Eminence High School.

    An uncle who had no children of his own would drive her to the school in Shelby County where she stayed during the week. Occasionally, Hill stayed at the school on weekends. The adjustment wasn’t easy at first, but the hardships Hill and many families endured were a part of life then.

    Her parents stressed the need for education and the doors it could open to a better life. When opportunity came, you took it — it wasn’t a choice.

  • CARE Team honors Druin

    She watched, jaw dropped, as one of her staffers surprised her.

    It took just a few seconds to realize what was going on.

    “Over 15 years ago, one woman not only decided that she wanted to make a difference, but that she would,” Melissa Blankenship told attendees of the Henry County CARE Team meeting.

    Through research, lobbying and grant writing, Nellie Druin “began building the foundation of the organization that would be known as the Henry County CARE Team,” Blankenship said.

  • C’Burg Community Center work is underway

    The Campbellsburg Community Center is inching closer to completion.

    Harold Broughton told the city councilors Monday night that 60 percent of the building’s exterior metal is now on, and should be completely on by the end of the weekend.

    Tuesday, crews were expected to install the center’s windows and doors. The center’s HVAC system is almost ‘roughed in,’ Broughton said, adding that “they’ve got some air ducts for (fresh air inflow)… but they couldn’t do that until the (exterior) metal was on.”
