  • Cats take second 11-point loss to Gallatin County this season

    The Henry County Wildcats had their first full week of practice with the entire basketball team last week, had a six-day break following a tough schedule that included 12 games in December and had Brad Taylor, who missed 10 games due to mono, back on the court.

    But all this, along with the comforts of playing in their own gym, wasn't enough to overcome Gallatin County Friday night.

  • Fieldhouse equals the right move

    It started with a vision and led to a plan. And two weeks ago, after the vision was accepted and the plan was finally put into place, the new athletic fieldhouse at Henry County High School was finished. The beneficiary: HCHS athletes, coaches, fans, parents and the entire community.

    Now, $75,000 in donations is needed to help furnish the inside to equip it with weights, locker rooms, bathrooms and workout space. I just hope those donations begin to flow in so the athletes can take advantage of this opportunity, which those before them could only dream about.

  • HC Ladycats still looking to get over hump, coach says

    With Friday night's 35-32 loss to Gallatin County, the Henry County girls' basketball team dropped to 2-9 overall, 1-3 in district play and took a seventh straight defeat.

    Henry's Jessica Booher swished a three-pointer basket, her third from the exact same spot in front of the rowdy high school fans in the corner, to give Henry a 13-7 lead midway through second quarter. But the Ladycats, who stayed in front for much of the game, wasn't able to put Gallatin away, and with 2:10 remaining in the fourth quarter, Gallatin knocked down a three-pointer to take the lead for good, 32-30.

  • Santa letters bring back holiday memories

    I have, for years, enjoyed typing up children's letters to Santa each year.

    That particular task manages to somehow be one of the hardest and funniest things we do in community newspapers.

    Inevitably, there are a few letters written by the younger kids that we cannot read or interpret, no matter how many folks we show the letter to. That is, however, part of their charm - the jumble of letters that makes perfect sense to the writer, but leaves us scratching our heads.

  • Trapped no more ... Boyer Lane to get relief

    Residents along Boyer Lane in Campbellsburg may, after many years, no longer be trapped by stopped trains.

    The road intersects with a CSX rail line, and at times throughout the years, trains will stop on the tracks, leaving many residents in the twelve homes on the road trapped with no way out.

    During last week's Fiscal Court meeting, Henry County Judge Executive John Logan Brent informed the court that after several meetings with CSX about Boyer Lane, residents would finally get some relief.

  • Star display is a tribute to daughter

    Fonda Powell's eyes speak volumes; more than any words ever could. They are a striking shade of light blue, but are softened from years of grieving. Her eyes have a distinctive type of sadness about them; one that could only be brought on by the loss of a child.

    Powell remembers the night clearly. It was Nov. 20, 1993. Her daughter Angela Oakley - just 20 years old was married and had two young boys - recently bought a car with money she had earned from waiting tables.

  • City of Eminence has plenty to be proud of

    My name is Shawn Bright. I am an Eminence City Council member and I have tried to write a letter to the editor every so often to keep you up to date about city happenings. It has been one year since I was elected, so I thought it was a good time to give an overview on some of the things that happened in the last twelve months. First, I would like to say that being a city council member has been a very interesting job and it comes with a lot of responsibilities. Being an elected official is a life changing experience.

  • Letter to Heaven

    Another year has come and gone but my heart still feels very sad and lonely. On November 8 last year God called someone home very dearly to me. I know she's dancing with Jesus now and all her worries are gone. And I feel her preence with everyday. But it is still not the same seeing that smiling face and feeling the warmth of her touch. She was everything you would want from a very special lady. I hope she knows that my heart still lones for her every day. Life is not the same anymore but I know she would tell me Libby don't cry for me, stand up adn be srong and take care of yourself.
