  • Canine crackdown?

    Landmark News Service

    Brownie appeared apologetic Monday as he circled his small crate at the Kentucky Humane Society in Eminence. The 4-year-old, tri-colored Shepherd mix occasionally stuck his wet nose nose between the chain links, accepting the punishment for a crime he didn't commit alone. Brownie was found unattended at a gas station near New Castle and delivered to the shelter by animal control. There, he awaits adoption.

    Brownie is just one example of a growing dog problem that one local council may soon address.

  • Don't worry: 8th Region still a go at HCHS despite concerns

    When thinking about the boys' 8th Region basketball tournament, memories flood my head like waves crashing onto shore. I can still remember the cold air after finally finding a place to park up the road towards New Castle; the screams from the crowd as I entered Henry County's ginormous gym; and the excitement that was generated around the horse-shoe shaped bleachers.

    I would yell during all the games, go home and write down my all-tournament team, then play on my Nerf basketball goal long into the night.

  • Cats never trail, up by as many as 28 in 15-point win

    Henry County and Eminence met on the basketball court for the final time this season Friday night, and the outcome was the same as the previous three times the two rival schools played - a Henry win.

    When the dust cleared inside Roy L. Winchester Gym, 10 different Henry players had scored, while just four Eminence players managed to chip in points, and the Wildcats came away with a 59-44 victory over the visiting Warriors. The Cats went in front less than 10 seconds into the game and were never seriously challenged as they got up by as many as 28 points and never trailed.

  • Showdown in New Castle

    Fittingly, Henry County senior Jean-Anne Moore gave the Henry County Ladycats just the spark they needed to distance themselves from Eminence in Friday's showdown against the visiting Lady Warriors.

    Moore, the only senior for Henry, scored 12 points, pulled down numerous rebounds and provided an inside presence, which allowed the Ladycats to come away with a 69-16 win on Senior Night. It was the most points Henry had scored all season, which came shortly after Moore was congratulated before her final home game.

  • County basketball teams set to open districts

    Wildcats

    The Henry County Wildcats lost to the Gallatin County Wildcats twice during the regular season, but coach Jason Holland likes his chances as the Wildcats and Wildcats will play each other Wednesday at Owen County High School. Game time is set for 6 p.m.

    "I feel good about our team right now," Holland said about the squad that has won two of its previous three games. "I hope we play well this week and then take it into the Gallatin game. I think we've gotten a lot better in the previous two weeks."

  • Legislative focus with Rick Rand

    While most legislative sessions are generally remembered for two or three major accomplishments, there are often dozens of other laws that positively affect our lives, even if they do not generate as much news.

    In recent years, we in the House have included many of these initiatives in our "Commitment to Kentucky Families" agenda. "Taken together, they are designed to improve our schools, our collective health and the way we interact with state government. "All are affordable, commonsense measures.

  • Storm damages historic church

    Landmark News Service

    One victim of last week's wind and rain was the historic Drennon Christian Church.

    One corner of the church's roof was peeled back in the storm.

    Despite the damage, the church did not cancel its Sunday services.

    Workers draped a tarp across the hole that tore into the church's aluminum roof. The storm caused more than $17,000 in damages to insulation, rafters and dry walling, according to initial estimates from Homes Plus Construction, the contractor handling repairs.

  • Candace-less Lady Warriors take loss

    While Candace Wells was on the sideline with a season-ending injury, the Lady Warriors took a 50-13 loss against the visiting Carroll County Lady Panthers last Friday night.

    Wells suffered a high-ankle sprain during the Louisville Collegiate loss a week before, which revealed a previous break that had not healed properly. The break — not the sprain — is what sidelined her for the rest of the season, Eminence coach Carter Martin said.

  • New Castle might consider skateboard ban

    Landmark News Service

    Growing complaints against skateboarders could prompt New Castle officials to tighten an ordinance addressing public safety.

    City Police Chief John Porter said Friday skaters, most of them teens, have been a nuisance at the bank, post office and other sites around the city.

    "It's any property they can get," Porter said. "The main problem is they're causing damage to businesses."
