  • Bat Cats' rally falls short

    The Henry County Wildcats’ baseball team opened their season with two games on the road in Frankfort this weekend.

    On Friday night the Wildcats played the Frankfort Panthers and lost when the Panthers pushed across a run in the bottom of the seventh.

    After the teams battled back and forth through the first two innings, Frankfort threatened to break the game open with a big third inning in which they scored three runs to take a 7-4 lead.

    The Wildcats came back in the sixth inning to get three runs to tie it going into the final inning.

  • Wildcats lead hoops highlights

    The 2013-14 high school basketball season is over for our local teams and it’s time to look back at the highlights of the season.

    The top highlight had to be the Henry County Wildcats’ run to the regional tournament that included a three-point win over Gallatin County and a heartbreaking last second loss to Owen County in the championship game.

    I think the loss to Owen says more about the Cats than their win against Gallatin.

  • I regret the resignation of a great resource

    I just found out Monday that the Henry County History Center has lost a great resource.

    The great Hammer Smith has resigned from his position at the History Center.

    Yes, the Hammer Smith who received the Patrick Henry Award just this past summer. Yes, the Hammer Smith who was recognized by everyone from the judge-executive to one of my great writing heroes Byron Crawford.

    I can’t tell you what happened, but I do intend to find out and inform everyone about what happens next to the Henry County History Center.
