  • A look at the most recent dietary guidelines

    Based on the most recent science, the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans were released at the beginning of 2016. Before you say, “here we go again,” let’s take a closer look.

  • 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.

  • Wildcats plan response to school violence

    Instead of following calls from across the country to join in the National School Walkout March 14, Henry County students felt moved to do their own thing with the goal to turn the discussion toward positivity and inclusivity, according to sophomores Sydney Bastin and Alyssa Wilson.

  • For better lawn care, it’s all about the blades

    This year, it seems like spring really snuck up on us, and I couldn’t believe I was mowing my lawn in March.
    It occasionally seems like I put more work into just mowing my yard than enjoying it. However, mowing and maintaining a lawn takes practice, patience and time.
    Every year, I receive numerous questions about mowing yards from “how high” and “what is the best mower,” and my answer is usually, “It just depends.”
    Every yard and mower is extremely different and each situation may be different. Frankly, most lawn mowers will get the job done as long as blades are sharp.
