  • It’s okay for children to be around funerals

    Michael Duncan


    I first saw the little boy about thirty minutes before the funeral was scheduled to begin. I guessed him to be six or seven years old. He was standing at the edge of the chapel, looking toward the open casket. As I watched, he slowly approached the casket where his mother stood looking at the body of her father.

    “I thought you were with your dad,” the mother said.

  • Football win over Berea; Volleyball seaon top highlights



    It’s time to look back at the fall sports season and pick out 5 highlights for the Eminence Warriors sports teams. All in all, it was a good year for the Warriors’ fall sports teams. They managed to win a fair number of games with young rosters. That should bode well for next year’s fall sports season.

    1. Comeback win vs. Berea

  • State golf tourney;win over Walton-Verona at the top



    Picking the number 1 highlight of the HCHS fall sports season was pretty easy this year. Every high school athlete’s dream is to reach the highest level of competition-the state tournament. Despite a rough season for Henry County sports teams there were some exciting moments for some very young and inexperienced teams.

    1. Mackenzie Peyton and Maddie Hensley go to state

  • Youthful teams bode well for the future



    The theme throughout the fall season has been youthfulness.

    I know I have repeated that often in these pages over the past three months, but the numbers just don’t lie. I went through the end-of-season rosters of all 11 local sports teams and came up with a grand total of 21 seniors playing fall sports at Henry County and Eminence.

    Eric Phillips is a 2010 graduate of Henry County High School and is a sophomore at the Cumberlands.

    Phillips is in his second year on the Patriots’ cross country team. This year, Phillips was part of the top seven runners for the Patriots which means he counted in the team scoring. Phillips set a personal record in the 8000-meter (about 5 miles) run on Sept. 15 in the Cedarville Invitational with a time of 27:34. He ran in the mid to low 28 minute range most of the season.

  • One cold night

    Logan Smith knows what it’s like to be homeless.

    Before finding her real dad and having a home again, Smith played the piano at a jazz-themed McDonald’s in Indiana for tips to eat. The experience and lessons learned compelled Smith to lead a homeless awareness senior project for Eminence High School seniors.  Smith doesn’t take anything for granted.
