    Henry County High School senior Mario Gamboa wrapped up his career as a high school football player in November when the Wildcats lost a heartbreaker to Floyd Central in the Class 3A playoffs, but he may continue his athletic career in college like many of his teammates. 

    Gamboa, however, is not pursuing a college football career. The 6’3”, 250-pound former offensive lineman has a good shot at being on the nationally renowned University of Louisville cheerleading squad next year.

    The Henry County Wildcats hosted the Eminence Warriors in the season opener for both teams March 19. The temperature was 60 degrees when the first batter stepped to the plate with a light rain falling. That stood in stark contrast to the rest of the week as a snowstorm and cold temperatures wiped out the week’s scheduled games. 

    Zack Woods started on the mound for the Wildcats and set the Warriors down in order in the top of first inning.

  • Wacky weather plays havoc with spring sports

     It’s officially spring now but somebody forgot to tell Mother Nature. There were 11 softball and baseball games scheduled between the four local high school teams for the opening week of the spring sports season and exactly one was played. That was the season opener between the Henry County and Eminence baseball teams.

    That game ended after five innings and the final inning was played in a rain steady enough to make it sketchy as to whether it could have been finished if the Wildcats had led by less than 10 runs.

  • For better lawn care, it’s all about the blades

    This year, it seems like spring really snuck up on us, and I couldn’t believe I was mowing my lawn in March.
    It occasionally seems like I put more work into just mowing my yard than enjoying it. However, mowing and maintaining a lawn takes practice, patience and time.
    Every year, I receive numerous questions about mowing yards from “how high” and “what is the best mower,” and my answer is usually, “It just depends.”
    Every yard and mower is extremely different and each situation may be different. Frankly, most lawn mowers will get the job done as long as blades are sharp.

  • Reduce your salt intake by growing herbs

    We all want to eat food that tastes good. One of the most common ways we tend to make food taste good is by adding salt.
    Unfortunately, most American diets are too high in sodium.
    Diets high in sodium can raise blood pressure, which can lead to many major health issues including heart disease.
    Herbs provide a great way for us to limit our sodium intake while still consuming flavorful foods.
    Herbs are also some of the easiest things to grow.
    The simplest way to start an herb garden is to buy plants and transfer them to a window box.
