    FRANKFORT – There are several holidays each year that are distinctly American – from Memorial Day and the Fourth of July to Thanksgiving – but only one celebrates the hard work that made us who we are: Labor Day.
    It is often seen as the unofficial end to the summer, but it’s important to look beyond that as we celebrate the upcoming three-day weekend.

  • Safety essential on county roads at harvest time

    It seems like the summer was hardly here and passed too fast. It is even harder to think that harvest season will soon be here.
    Grain farmers will be in the fields with combines, and cattle producers will be chopping corn for silage. This activity means that tractors and farm equipment will be on the roads, and drivers and equipment operators need to safely share the road.
    Motorist driving roads with agricultural equipment:
    • Slow down. Remember the top speed for tractors is around 20 mph, so slow down to give yourself the time and space to assess the situation.

  • A summer well spent brings a fall of content

    Summer has escaped us.
    Your kiddos are trying to soak up the last bit of pool time after a day of classes. You’re weaving through the Jack-o-lantern-covered aisles of Kroger. And your husband is spending the last of his summer Sunday nights sweating cutting the grass.
    Myself, I’m trying to wrap my head around the fact that my first season in Henry County has already come to an end.
    I started here in May, when the drive along Hwy. 22 to get to our Eminence office was bright at 7:30 a.m. Soon, the same 30-minute commute will be in the dark.

    The Henry County Lady Cats opened their season with a 9-1 demolition of Spencer County in Taylorsville Aug. 13.

    Gracie Brent got the scoring started 11 minutes into the game with a goal from point blank range after receiving a pass from Presley Crowe. A good through ball from Jenna Hardin to Crowe set up the goal.

  • Warriors win two more


    The Eminence Warriors made it four wins in a row after a season opening defeat to Anderson County when they defeated visiting Lloyd Memorial 2-0 Aug. 14.

    The Lady Juggernauts jumped on top of the Warriors, 9-2 early in the first set as EHS made several unforced errors.

    But four straight Lloyd errors got the Warriors back into the game at 9-5 and they gradually began to play better.
