    An Eminence-based alumni group hopes to honor a man who devoted most of his adult life to youth baseball.

  • HCPS: SEEK funding to decline

    Despite promises that education funding would not be touched, the impact of Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear’s proposed budget could be keenly felt in Henry County.

    Though the SEEK formula won’t be cut, an increase in population means that spending per student will decrease. And for Henry County Public Schools, that will mean a decrease of about $197,000, in addition to a 4.5 percent cut in state grant programs.

    HCPS Superintendent Tim Abrams said those programs provide textbooks, professional development and more.
