  • See 'The Last Shaker' Oct. 25

    The Chautauqua performance of “The Last Shaker” will take place at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 25, at Twin Oaks.

    Frank and Mary Settles were planning to move from Louisville to Missouri, where they would purchase a farm and raise a family. But when Frank left Mary and the children at Pleasant hill to get the farm, he never returned.  She taught at Pleasant Hill for 27 years and was the last member to live there.  Janet Scott will portray Mary Settles.  Scott is the co-founder of Lexington’s highly-acclaimed theatre group On the Verge.

  • After tough end to volleyball season, coach Ruff looks forward to 2012

    Heading into the 2011 season, Katie Ruff was worried.

    She was taking over a Henry County High School volleyball team that had three seniors, one of which had no previous volleyball experience, a junior, a sophomore and a whole bunch of freshmen.

    “I knew what I had to work with, I was a little worried when the season started out,” Ruff said. But, as the season played out, “as a whole, they really exceeded my expectations.”

  • Wildcats stung by Central

    For a few minutes against Central High School, it looked like Henry County had the right formula.

    The Wildcats put up a defensive stand that would lead to their first touchdown of the night. Later, they did something few other football teams in the state have managed to do — force Anthony “Ace” Wales to fumble the ball.

    But in the end, it would not be enough, as the Wildcats fell to Central, 15-54.

    “They have tremendous talent, as far as speed on the field,” Henry coach Jason Spencer said of the Yellowjackets.

  • Eminence 
to play for 1st place

    Getting off to a slow start has become a pattern for the Eminence Warriors football team.

    So far, it’s worked for them, and despite the slow start, Eminence ran away with a win against Paris High School on Oct. 14.

    The win assures Eminence of a first- or second- place finish, depending only upon how their Friday night game against Frankfort goes. The win also assures Eminence of a homefield advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

  • Warriors fall in clash with the Titans

    “Be proud of yourselves, do you hear me?”

    With the Shelby and Anderson County volleyball teams warming up behind them, the Eminence Warriors gathered around head coach Stephanie Barrows.

    The Titans of Collins High School had just handed the Warriors their walking papers in the 30th District tournament with a 14-25; 13-25 loss.

    Barrows said it again. “Be proud of yourselves. You did something that hasn’t been done at Eminence in eight years.”

  • Chamber membership has many benefits

    One of the many benefits of belonging to the Henry County Chamber of Commerce is having an outlet to let people know what your business does or if a new product or skill has been added.

    Mike Paris of M&K Construction now is available to fix those cracks that seem to come in your basement walls.  Instead of expensive companies who advertise fixing these, you can call Mike at 269-0013 for an estimate to cure your problem.

  • Create jobs by selling American

    Kentucky families continue to work hard to make ends meet in an uncertain economy while unemployment remains unacceptably high. That is why one of my top priorities is advancing positive, commonsense economic policies that will help the private sector grow and hire.  Congress made progress last week by passing trade agreements with Colombia, Panama and South Korea with broad bipartisan support.

  • Amnesty program has many benefits

    Today I would like to talk about the state Tire Amnesty Program put on by the Kentucky Department of Waste Management.

    The program began in the county in 1999 and continued every four years. The program is set up to accept and dispose of most tires, in an effort to eliminate unwanted tires from our streams, roadsides and other locations at no charge to the public. The program will be offered to Henry County residents Oct. 20-22 at the state road barn located on Kentucky-193, north of New Castle.
