  • Improving child welfare programs

    As chairman of the Subcommittee on Human Resources, it is my responsibility to periodically review programs under my jurisdiction to ensure they are an effective use of taxpayer dollars.

    Representative Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas) and I worked together to accomplish that result with legislation that was signed into law last week by President Obama.  The Child and Family Services Improvement and Innovation Act (H.R. 2883) reauthorizes and improves two important child welfare programs to continue serving children and families in need without adding to the deficit.

  • Boys golf ends season on sour note

    Somewhere, midway through the season, the Henry County boys golf team lost its punch.

    The lack of punch showed, Henry County head coach Barney Sutley said.

    In the NCKC tournament, the boys finished fifth out of seven teams. The team’s best performance came from Nathan Parish, who shot an 84, about 12 strokes better than his average for the season.

    Senior Matt Ricketts also shot an 84, and the team’s other seniors each shot a 94. “So, definitely not as good as we could’ve done,” Sutley said.

  • HCHS boys soccer team ends tough season with heads up despite record

    A 1-10 record is rarely taken well in any sport.

    But that’s where the Henry County Boys’ soccer team found itself at the end of the 2011 season.

    But instead of hanging their heads or bemoaning their lack of success, the team was upbeat.

    “It was a tough year,” head coach Rob Powars said. “I was worried that they were going to get down on themselves. But they tried to keep it pretty light. They knew how it was going to go.”

  • Henry wraps up regular season

    With 15 minutes to go in their game against Owen County, Henry County girls’ soccer coach Shannon Snider put Victoria Paynter and Emily Veigh up front, and told them go have fun.

    They did.

    On senior night, the two combined for a total of six of the team’s seven goals, and fellow senior Katie Setters chipped in a third as the Ladycats defeated Owen County 7-0.

    “They were pretty emotionally pumped up,” Snider said. “It was our best game this season.”

  • Ladycats sweep series

    It was the third game of the rematch. Eminence and Henry County were tied 22-22.

    In a gym that was buzzing from start to finish, the two volleyball teams went head to head for nearly 90 minutes. This was it — the Warriors chance to get revenge after falling to the Ladycats earlier in the season.

    A long set out gave Henry County a point. 23-22.

    A panic play gives the Ladycats another point. 24-22.
