  • HCHS girls golf team takes NCKC

    When the Henry County girls golf team took to the links for the district tournament at the Henry County Country Club Tuesday morning, they were still riding a winning wave.

    On Sept. 20, the girls took the NCKC tournament by storm, winning the tournament as a team, and individually, with freshman MacKenzie Peyton winning a playoff hole with two other players.

    Peyton was in a three-way tie with teammate Ally Vaughn and Shelby Powers, heading into the playoff hole, which she won by shooting an even par.

  • Warriors hang on to beat Berea

    Through their first four games, the Eminence Warriors defeated their opponents with relative ease.

    Last week against Berea, despite a first half that showed some of the same ease, the Warriors held on to a seemingly tenuous lead, spending the bulk of the fourth quarter in their own territory offensively and defensively.


    Head coach Steve Frommeyer said the team played well in the first half, with the exception of the opening drive.

  • Wildcats win on senior night

    Update: Coach Lyndon Johnson lost his fight with cancer on the morning of Wednesday, Sept. 28. Visitation is set for 4-8 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 1, at the Henry County Wildcats' fieldhouse.

    One by one, the Henry County Wildcat seniors took to the track.

    One by one, each of them — and their parents — hugged each other.

    And one by one, they all walked over to Lyndon Johnson — father of their teammate and fellow senior, Connor Johnson — and hugged him, too.

  • EHS to go pink for Welch

    When word got out at Eminence High School that biology and chemistry teacher Dawn Welch had been diagnosed this summer with breast cancer, members of the volleyball team decided they wanted to do something to show their support.

    During tomorrow’s home volleyball game against arch-rival Henry County High School, the team is hosting a “Pink Out,” decorating the gymnasium in pink and encouraging everyone who attends to join them in wearing pink – the color associated with the fight against breast cancer.

  • Recyling: finding out where it all goes

    Ever wondered where the materials you place in recycling bins go, once the Rumpke truck stops by to collect them?

    Several Henry County officials were curious about the process and took a field trip Friday, Sept. 23, to the garbage hauler’s recycling facility in the Saint Bernard suburb of northwest Cincinnati.

  • Alcohol sales petition hits goal

    If Roger Hartlage has his way, registered voters in Henry County will have the opportunity to say yes or no to a plan to amend the county’s alcohol laws.

    The magistrate, who represents District 2 on Fiscal Court, has been helping to collect signatures for a petition to put the issue of by-the-drink alcohol sales on the ballot. That would change Henry to a “moist” county, meaning alcohol sales are limited to only a specific class of restaurants.

  • EIS, HCPS fail to make all NCLB goals

    According to data released Tuesday morning, just 42.6 percent of the state’s school districts met all of their NCLB goals. Neither Henry County Public nor Eminence Independent Schools were among those schools.

    Both districts failed to meet all of their NCLB goals; EIS met six of 10, while HCPS met eight of its 13 goals.

    While EIS fell short on meeting any of its math goal – as well as failing to meeting the math and reading goals for students on free/reduced lunch, HCPS failed to meet its reading goals.

  • HC Animal Clinic makes history

    When researchers in Australia were developing what would become adipose stem cell therapy, they tested the procedure on goats.

    And since introducing the procedure to the world, it’s been used to repair tissue damage in a wide variety of animals: cats, dogs, horses, even camels and a parrot.

    Earlier this year, Dr. Clark Slone and the Henry County Animal Clinic used the procedure to treat the arthritic knees of Mongo the dog — who now gets along better than he has in years.

  • A not so happy homecoming

    In their quest to take down the Rockets of Shelby County on homecoming night, the Henry County Wildcats started off strong.
    But turnovers would prove quite costly by the end of the game.

    Henry held the Rockets to four-and-out on their first possession, before marching 76 yards up-field for the first touchdown of the night, a 10-yard scramble by quarterback Dakota Isaacs.
