  • Regarding “Security breach closes Home Health Agency”

    The Henry County Home Health Agency opened in 1976 in New Castle, and provided services to patients in Henry, Oldham, Trimble and Oldham Counties. I worked there from 1997 to 1999 with the last few years as supervisor/coordinator. I retired in 1999 and returned from 2008 to July 1 2010 in the nurse consultant/coordinator position (the eighth coordinator since 1999). In the early 1980s, four counties chose to join together to form the North Central District Health Department for economical as well as to be able to provide better services to the communities.

  • Ladycats have two-game letdown on volleyball court

    As the Henry County volleyball team enters an important stretch of matches, the Ladycats took a step backward last week.

    Now, head coach Jon Kasten said he needs his Cats to take two steps forward.

    Henry beat Western Hills (2-1) last Tuesday night and lost to Martha Layne Collins (2-0) on Thursday in two games Kasten described as letdowns. The Western win gave Henry five straight match victories — even though it was not near its best outing — and Collins was Henry’s first loss since Aug. 26.

  • Cats never give up

    Friday night’s football showdown at Anderson County was not supposed to be a showdown at all. The host Bearcats were supposed to jump out to an early lead, then cruise in for an unchallenged win. They were supposed to score early and often, perhaps winning by three to four touchdowns. The 5-A team that beat 3-A Henry County 42-7 last season was supposed to do the same again this time around.

    The Wildcats, however, never got that memo.

  • Ladycat golfers are fourth at home invitational

    Mackenzie Peyton had the best-ever outing for a Henry County golfer over 18 holes, and the Ladycats finished fourth at their home invitational held at the Henry County Country Club all day Saturday.

    Shooting a 1-under-par 70, Peyton was second in the individual standings and lowered her own school record by three strokes. The eighth grader trailed Ballard senior Gina Nuzzo, who was at the top of the leaderboard at 2-under-par 69.

  • Boys soccer at HCHS showing improvements

    The Henry County boys’ soccer team took a 2-1 loss to Walton-Verona last Thursday night, but the Wildcats are showing marked improvements as the season progresses.

    The Cats lost to Walton-Verona, 4-0, on Aug. 24, and shrank that losing margin to just one goal three weeks later. It was what coach Jay Dunavan describes as one of his players best games. They were aggressive, fundamentally more sound, covered ground much better and almost pulled out the win.

  • Council, attorney spar over $

    General Manager

    Tensions between members of the Campbellsburg City Council and the city’s attorney flared Monday night when one member questioned the city’s legal expenses.

    Mayor Jan Fletcher was poised to adjourn the city council’s Monday night meeting, when council member Rex Morgan said he wanted to address the attorney’s expenses.

  • Who do you have to know?

    As a tax paying resident of Henry County, I think it’s only reasonable to expect that the road I live on receive the same care and maintenance as any other road in the county.


  • NCKC Champs played Tuesday at Henry Co.

    Preparing for the North Central Kentucky Conference championship, which was played all day Tuesday at the Henry County Country Club, the Henry County boys’ golf team played in two matches last week.

    The Wildcats hosted Owen County last Monday and traveled to Whitefield Academy on Thursday in the final two outings before the all-important conference tournament arrived. Afterwards, coach Willie Peyton said his team played well against Owen and struggled against Whitefield, but it was the NCKC that was his team’s first real focus of the season.
