  • HCHS Swim Cats back in water after long break from racing

    After a five-week break from racing, the Henry County Swim Cats dove back into competition last week with two meets. The team, composed of twins Kaitlin and Kara Blair and coached by their mother Melanie, raced at the Family Activity Center in Shelbyville last Wednesday and at Kentucky State University in Frankfort Saturday.

    Both girls got a jump start to the new year with season-best times.

  • Cats storm comeback, but lose in OT

    The Henry County Wildcats' downward skid of losses stretched to six straight Friday night against Owen County, but the Cats were just a few plays away from being in the win column for the first time since they defeated East Jessamine the day after Christmas.

    Instead, they took a 57-51 overtime loss.

  • Playbook includes prayer

    If you watch the Henry County High School boys' basketball team closely, you will learn a few things. You will learn that the Wildcats are struggling a bit right now but are young with unlimited potential. You will learn they are usually undersized with a number of wing players, leaving Cody Hinkle and Cari Dunaway to do the dirty work inside on the boards. And you will learn that when they are on - with some deadly shooters on hand like Ben Roberts, Joey Pollard and Steven Tillett - they are on.

  • Ladycats break skid with 'big' win over Owen County

    The Henry County Ladycats took the lead with 3:30 left in the final quarter against the visiting Owen County Lady Rebels, and never looked back.

    The Ladycats, who were behind 34-28 before they came alive, used an 11-0 spurt during a crucial three-minute stretch to grab a manageable lead. They then held on for a 42-36 win in the closing minutes to snap an eight-game losing streak and improve to 3-10 overall, 2-4 in district play.

  • One step forward, two back for Lady Warriors

    The Eminence Lady Warriors might have ended their basketball game at Shelby County last Thursday with a lopsided 54-18 loss, but they took a step in the right direction during the fourth quarter when they won the final eight minutes of play, 10-7.

    But two days later, it was a step in the wrong direction for the Lady Warriors when they were defeated by Beechwood, a team nowhere near Shelby's caliber, 36-13. Now, Eminence coach Carter Martin is searching for answers.

  • EHS coach wants overhaul

    After the Eminence Warriors lost three more basketball games last week - Tuesday against Spencer County (71-33), Thursday against Louisville Collegiate (52-29) and Saturday against Kentucky Country Day (56-28) - their head coach, Keith Blackburn, wants the struggling squad to have a complete overhaul.

  • Thanks for help with cafeteria project

    I first moved here in May 2007 to live with my uncle George and aunt Lee Ann. They live in Eminence. My little brother and I had already been here on visits. You see we knew we were moving here because my mother had terminal cancer. She wanted us to feel comfortable as we could before we came on a permanent basis. She died June 27, 2007. Our world seemed to turn upside down. I have never felt so lost. I started school in August at Eminence as an eighth grader.

    Thanks to a $294,000 federal appropriation, the Henry County Commerce Park, near Campbellsburg, may finally get much needed infrastructure. U.S. Representative Geoff Davis presented the check to the Henry County Fiscal Court Tuesday morning in New Castle.

    Davis said Tuesday morning that he would like to see the "Henry County model" of cooperation between cities, county and state government "all over Kentucky."

    "It's not about politics, it's about working together," he said. "Through partnerships, we can get a lot done."

    A Trimble County grand jury will soon determine whether officers were justified in shooting a man involved in a recent domestic dispute.

    The shooting occurred Dec. 29, 2007, after police were called to a Thorn Hill Road residence on a report of a domestic dispute. According to Kentucky State Police spokesman Chip Perry, Debbie Corley called 911 shortly after 4 p.m. to report her estranged husband, Darrell Corley, was at the home they once shared, threatening her.
