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

  • 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.

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

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

    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.”

  • Don’t miss out on the EIC

    In 2013, federal tax credits will mean more for working families than ever before. As the economy struggles to recover from the recession, the Earned Income Credit can provide relief for many working families who are under economic stress. The EIC can help families pay back bills, avoid utility shut-offs or eviction, buy groceries, cover child care costs, or meet other needs. Working individuals and families need to know that help may be available when you file your 2013 tax return. You also need to know how and where to get assistance.

    Wildcats head coach Jason Spencer was excited.
