    Henry County's cross country team was short on numbers Saturday in the Class 2A, Region 3 Championships in Goshen, but the Cats managed to qualify half of their runners for the Kentucky State Cross Country Championships the following weekend.

    With a 7-3 record and a regular-season District Four title behind them, and a Class 3A state playoff game on their home field this Friday night, the Henry County Wildcats are on a upswing. But, according to junior varsity coach Lyndon Johnson, that swing will only get higher.

  • Warriors hope to contain speedy Panthers in playoffs

    Sports editor

    Eminence's football team hung with Frankfort High School through two quarters on Oct. 19, trailing the highly-ranked Panthers just 7-0 at the break. But Frankfort, who was ranked second among Class A teams at the time, scored 30 points during the second half, allowed Eminence to squeak into the end zone just once, and pulled away to a convincing 37-8 win.

    Now, three weeks later, the teams will be squaring off once again, this time in the opening round of the Class A Football State Tournament. Game time is set for 7:30 p.m. Friday night on Frankfort's home turf.

  • 'Now I know war'

    Staff Writer and Photographer

    Matthew Martin lived his early life not knowing war. Born in 1921, and raised in rural Kentucky, the concept seemed distant.

    "I was completely apart from war," he said. "I knew all about The Depression, but not war."

    December 7, 1941, changed everything. Martin recalls the day clearly.

  • Lions and bears and ... hot dogs? Oh my!

    I now can say I've been through my first Trick or Treat with the Henry County Local.

    And I can honestly say it was some of the most fun I've ever had on Halloween.

    It was, for the most part, non-stop action, but a hoot nonetheless.

    We saw plenty of lions, a few bears, but not many tigers. We saw lots of lady bugs, several Hannah Montannas, and more than a few zombies. We even had a couple of kangaroos hopping around our office. We only had one banana and a couple of doctors.

  • Troxell named oustanding volunteer by SHIP

    Staff writer and photographer

    To call Polly Troxell a people person would be a bit of an understatement. The title alone does not do her justice. A few anecdotes, however, provide a more accurate representation.

    Once, on vacation in Yellowstone National Park, Polly and her husband went to see the renowned tourist attraction, Old Faithful. Polly, as it turned out, had a different agenda. When she spotted what she referred to as an "interesting looking fellow," Old Faithful took a backseat.

  • Henry County Cross Country team preps for regional championship

    The Class 2A, Region 3 Championship was a record-breaking affair for coach Ricky Drawbaugh and his Henry County Cats last season.

Now, a year later, the second-year head coach wants his team to duplicate last year's feat.
