  • Clements named Cook’s employee of the year

    Bo Clements can’t stand not working.

    Clements started working at the Eminence Cook’s in 1989. He left working in dairy and tobacco farming for a spot in shipping and receiving. Clements will tell anyone the only thing he cares about is pleasing the customer, his boss and staying busy.
    “I started helping here delivering lawn mowers. I was fresh off the farm and didn’t know much,” Clements said. “I’ve been here over 20 years and I’m just glad to have a job.”

    Former Major League Baseball player, Sam Ewing, once said that, “Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don’t turn up at all.” And for those of us who have been in the workforce for most of our lives, we know that his assessment is true.

    Four months after taking over Smith-McKenney in the Village Plaza shopping center in Shelbyville, CVS will move its store to the intersection of U.S. 60 and the Shelbyville Bypass, where the condemned Wesley Apartments now stand.

    The company presented its long-awaited development plan to the Triple S Planning Commission at its meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Stratton Center.

  • Panthers dominte Cats

    When the Henry County Wildcats and Carroll County Panthers met last week, it appeared that another barnburner between the district rivals was underway.

    But a 6-1 Panthers’ run in the 1st quarter dashed that hope; the Panthers never

    looked back in a 29-point victory that hurt the Wildcats’ chances of a high seed in the district tournament.

  • Mitchell's Grand

    It happened quietly over the holiday break. Eminence Senior Brandon Mitchell surpassed the 1,000-career points mark in Metcalfe County.

    Acknowledgement of the accomplishment was planned for Friday night’s game against Evangel Christian once Mitchell got his first basket of the game; though it took a little time to get there — Mitchell had a tough offensive night.

    The crowd and Mitchell had to wait until late in the third quarter before he finally scored.

  • Lady Cats hold their ground

    Illness decimated the Henry County Lady Cats last week.

    Henry played its third game against Carroll County down three starters — Colleen Coomes, Cheyenne Clark and Haley Bramblett. Kim Barmore played despite being sick herself.

    Despite being down three players, the Lady Cats came into this game hoping to get another victory — they’d beaten Carroll in the North American Steel tournament six days prior — against their rivals in a district seeding game.

  • Random thoughts from a random brain

    The past week in the sports world has brought a few questions to mind:

    • How do we expect kids to display sportsmanship when the adults around them do not?

    • How can the Big East still be considered a step below the powerhouse conferences after what Louisville did to Florida?

    • Did anyone out there know that there is such a thing as the GoDaddy.com Bowl?

    • Will there still be 35 bowl games when the new bowl playoff system is put into place?
