  • Jefferson Community and Technical College campus comes to Carrollton

    Landmark News Service After several years of hard work, the dream of building a new Carrollton campus for Jefferson Community and Technical College moved a big step forward last week. Local and state officials announced Wednesday, Nov. 21, that they have reached an agreement securing a site for a new campus.

  • Paducah spoils Wildcats' record-setting year

    Henry County's storybook run, which saw the football squad celebrate the school's first two playoff victories, came to a screeching halt Friday night in the Class 3-A quarterfinal at Paducah Tilghman.

    Coming on the heels of their playoff wins over Western Hills (20-7) and North Oldham (15-7) the previous two weekends, the Wildcats had no answer for the speedy Paducah team, which led 23-7 at the half and pulled away to a convincing 36-13 win.

  • Wildcats put pieces back together after losing six seniors from last season

    As freshmen, Ben Roberts and Joey Pollard were starters on a team that went 3-23 and lost to Anderson County (51-34) in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament. Jason Holland joined the struggling squad that season, and it took the enthusiastic coach 10 losses to earn that first win.

    Boy, how things have changed since then.

  • Henry County Ladycats pin season hopes on young talent, shooting for 10-plus wins

    To say the Henry County girls basketball team is young this season is a bit of an understatement. Actually, its really an understatement.

  • Eminence Warriors ready to get back to a winning season after 8-18 2007 campaign

    Eminence coach Keith Blackburn spent most of his summer scratching his head and rubbing his chin.

    I didnt know what I was going to do to get these guys ready to play, said Blackburn, who led the Warriors on the court during the 1990s and from the sideline since 2001. The off-season just started off way too slow, and I knew we had to develop as players and as a team.

    Now, Blackburns thoughts about the team have changed a bit, and hes sure about one thing theyre more ready to play than he originally thought.

  • Time to get back on the hardwood

    Dont look, but basketball season is creeping up on you.

    Boo!

    Actually, as of Monday night, basketball season has officially begun. And when the four county teams take to the court in their opening games this week, it will be in full swing. I dont need ghosts and goblins to tell me that.

  • Eminence Lady Warriors' top priority this season to be competitive with opponents

    Before Carter Martin can build a successful program at Eminence High School, he has to be competitive. Thats his motto, and hes sticking to it.

    Martin inherited a program last year that was coming off a 2-20 season under the guidance of Corey Scriber, and had won just 16 games the previous six seasons. And by the time Martins first season came to a halt with a 70-16 loss to Shelby County in the opening round of post-season action in February, his team had won just once.

  • EHS Warriors might play 11-man and 8-man football

    Sports editor

    Within the next few years, Eminence's football team might get back to what made the program successful during the 1990s - eight-man football. But coach Steve Frommeyer and his Warriors, who won numerous state eight-man titles and a few national crowns, want to continue in the 11-man, district-playoffs format, too.

    Now, they might get the chance to do both.

  • Wildcats playing past Turkey Day for the first time

    The price for Lyndon Johnson's amusing but realistic head painting before Friday's game - around 50 dollars. The price to fix the one-bar-up, one-down goal post following Henry County's 15-7 win over North Oldham - just Tim Rahm's hard work. The price for a hotel room in Paducah this Friday night - around 70 bucks.

    The price of watching the Wildcats storm the field in a history-making victory over the Mustangs - priceless.

    Priceless indeed.
