  • From cross to the Boss

     Today’s column is going to be a bit eclectic. I want to talk about two of my favorite things: cross country and Bruce Springsteen. Some of you are already saying to yourselves; why are you going to write about a rock and roll singer in a sports column. To that I respond: be patient we’ll get to that a little later.

    Measuring success

    Cross country season ended for local athletes this week. Henry County hosted the Class AA Regional meet Saturday and, alas, did not have any runners qualify for state.

  • Warriors fall to Bellevue, 48-8

    Against a bigger, more experienced team, the Eminence Warriors held their ground for one half in the Class A Playoffs Friday night.

    But the Bellevue Tigers’ superior size and strength took a toll on the Warriors in the second half as Bellevue pulled away for a 48-8 victory. Bellevue, now 7-4, will travel to Frankfort for the second round against the 10-1 Panthers.

    Eminence’s season ends at 7-4.

  • Cats host 2A, Region 3 regional

     

    The Henry County cross country team closed out their season on Saturday by hosting the Class AA regional championships at the Highlands Renaissance Park in Eminence on a cold, rainy day.

    The Cats ran well, but failed to qualify anyone for the state meet in the highly competitive races.

    Lilly Golden led the girls’ team with a season best time of 22:23.

  • Thanks to, sympathy for all veterans

    Submitted by Jim Greisch

    Nov. 11, another Veterans Day.

    Fewer older veterans. More younger vets

    “Thank you for your service.”  Most vets hear that almost every day on television, directed toward someone on camera. Many others hear from someone on first meeting, or from a relative,  friend, or even a co-worker.

    The word service has many meanings. A lot of vets have manned duty stations during peacetime… quietly doing hum-drum chores, standing guard and going on liberty. (Yes, I was a sailor.)
