  • Christmas tournaments bring mixed bag for Warriors

    Santa Claus brought the Eminence Warriors a mixed bag of presents in a pair of Christmas tournaments last week.

    Their first gift was a lump of coal delivered on a last-second put-back by Evangel Christian in the Portland Christian Holiday Classic. Evangel won the game 59-57.

    “We had a 5-point lead with 30 seconds to go,” head coach Chris Nethery said. But three missed free throws in a row, combined with four turnovers in the final minute were a fatal blow, putting a cap on a frustrating three-game skid.

  • Despite losses, Gilley sees improvement in Ladycats

    Four games in three days is enough to make any basketball team a little tired.

    Against Fern Creek on Friday, the Henry County Ladycats ran out of gas, and lost 26-42.

    “There’s no excuse, they played four games too,” head coach Todd Gilley said. “But we looked like we were running in mud. It’s not for a lack of effort, we just looked a step slow in that game.”

    The loss was the last game in the Pinkham Automotive Christmas Classic in Elizabethtown.

  • Cats go 2-1 in Capital City Tourney

    It’s time to shake off the Christmas ham and turkey, and play some basketball.

    Or at least that’s what Henry County basketball coach Enoch Welch wants to see. His Wildcats are coming off of a strong 2-1 performance in the Capital City Invitational last week, and now are hosting the annual Henry County Invitational Tournament.

    “There’s a lot of good teams coming in here,” Welch said. “Four games in three days... (we’re) going to be very tired. Our guys are going to have to get their legs ready.”

  • Animal rescue volunteers feel a calling to help

    “Dan and his staff... have made a bad situation as good as it could be,” Magistrate Roger Hartlage told the Fiscal Court on Dec. 20. “The working ethic these guys put out is second to none. They did not stop, and will not stop, until it’s done. I commend you for that.”

    Nobody knew just how big a task faced them at 25 Allyson Lane.

    But on Monday, Dec. 12, Henry County Animal Control Officer Dan Flinkfelt marshaled a few regular volunteers to assist in what one said was a big raid.

  • In recovery: Rescued dogs on the mend

    The 240 animals confiscated Dec. 12 from a puppy mill/hoarding situation on Allyson Lane in rural Campbellsburg have all found refuge with foster homes, veterinarians and animal rescue groups in the region, according to Henry County Animal Control Officer Dan Flinkfelt.

    So far, the majority of the animals have survived. Two cats that were removed from the property died in transit; one was euthanized after it tested positive for feline leukemia, a deadly, incurable and highly contagious disease.

  • Second-round shelter bids rejected

    Henry and Trimble County officials working together to build a new animal shelter were unpleasantly surprised Thursday, Dec. 15, when a second round of bids for the project came in at least $100,000 higher than the amount the counties have budgeted.

    The counties hope to build the 2,100-square-foot, cement block structure for $250,000 on land donated to Trimble County by Republic Services, owners of the Valley View Landfill.

  • Home for the Holidays

    While the Henry County Animal Shelter has been dealing with finding rescues and foster homes for the 240 animals confiscated from an alleged puppy mill in Campbellsburg last week, Animal Control Officer Dan Flinkfelt wants to remind area residents that he and his staff are still handling the routine tasks of running the facility.

    “We’re still spaying and neutering, and still doing everything we need to do” to operate the shelter, as well as going out on calls, as well as dealing with the overwhelming number of animals that were confiscated.
