  • Say no to misleading candidates

    When I read the letters to the editor in the Henry County Local last week, I was very impressed that Mr. (Howard) Roberts and Councilman (Shawn) Bright chose to shed the light on tactics used by one of this year’s candidates for the Eminence City Council. It is, in my opinion, that her tactics have proven the type of council member she would be. I personally believe that neither the people, nor the City of Eminence, can afford to have this type of leadership! The decisions that we make on election day are of the upmost importance.

    When Henry Countians cast their ballot in November, the results will be tabulated — and reported — much faster than in previous years.

    Eminence’s volleyball team put up a good fight in its final match of the season, but came up just short as host Anderson County sent the Lady Warriors away after two games Monday night in the opening round of the 28th District tournament.

    Eminence, the No. 4 seed, played the underdog role well in the opening game of the best-of-three series, holding the early lead and building it to 11-7 midway through the eye-popping start. Anderson, the No. 1 seed, then used a couple of spurts to even up the scoreboard and open up its own lead.

  • Slinging Dirt

    Wasn’t enough dirt slung into the Eminence swimming pool recently?  Now, let’s check back with Paul Harvey for the rest of the real story.

  • It's about the personal challenge

    I am waist deep in lake water with mud squishing underfoot as the starter says “Go!” I start mad paddling as 100 other arms make a unique turbulence on all sides.  Three people bump into me and I see only their goggles, caps and hands.

  • Warriors race on 'very tough' Capital View course, Hernandez leads the wat

    Sports editor

    At Eminence’s cross-country practice last Friday — the day before the Warriors would compete at the Capital View Classic — coach Scott McClamroch told his runners the course would be “a bit challenging but not too bad.” He found out otherwise the following day when his runners raced on the toughest course they will see all season long. With very few flat spots and long, windy hills, Capital View has a reputation as being a tough course that produces slow times.
