  • Panthers down Warriors in district play

    The Eminence Warriors hosted the Carroll County Panthers on Thursday night and got off to good start before falling to the district leading team.

    After shutting the Panthers down in the top of the first, the Warriors came to bat and got a lead off double from Austin Jones. Mitchell Golden then got a one-out single to score Jones and give the Warriors the lead.

    The second inning started well for the Warriors as they got the first two outs of the inning. The Panther’s bats woke at that point and before the inning was over Carroll County had scored six runs.

  • Sidewalks: Trampled under foot

    Let’s take a look at one of the most under appreciated civic improvements ever — the public sidewalk.

    These concrete walkways serve the citizens in a surprising variety of ways.

    Consider: They can be used as places to exercise; as approaches to our commercial cores downtown; as a self-guided tour of our architecture and historic places — for example, as a vantage point to study an interesting old train station; or as a place to find an excuse to multitask and bask in the sunshine.

    Last week was the 2014 Days of Remembrance, a week set aside to remember the victims of the Holocaust.

    Last year, while on a trip to Washington D.C., my wife and I toured the United States Holocaust Museum. The United States Holocaust Museum was created to be a “resonator of memory.”

  • Memoir: Our family and 4-H

    The Skidmore family was involved in the first 4-H Club in Henry County. Our father, L. C. Skidmore, Jr., was a member of the first club, started by C. C. Malone, the first County Agent of Henry County, in the mid-1920’s.

    I (Mary Lynn) spent many Sunday mornings with my dad in his latter years and he shared a lot of his memories with me. Many of those fond memories were of his experiences in 4-H and his love of the cattle business.

  • Take measures to ensure hay quality going forward

    This past winter was a tough one. We went into the winter thinking we had plenty of hay, but before it was over several producers ran out or were running close.

    In addition, the long cold periods told us through our poor cattle performance that our hay quality was not as good as we wanted or needed. True, we seem to get by pretty well with one of our mild winters, but how are we going to stay on top of things if we continue to have rough winters.

    Looking forward, what factors can we control in making higher quality hay?
