    A strong defensive performance in the third quarter propelled the Henry County Wildcats to a 12-point victory over the Kentucky Country Day Bearcats in Louisville on Feb. 9.

    The Wildcats held the Bearcats to just two points in the period to take command of what had been a close game through the first two periods.

    The Wildcats led 13-11 after the opening period and increased the lead to seven points late in the second period.

    The Warriors’ defense was even stingier in the second period and they outscored the Bears 6-2 to lead 12-6 at halftime. Crawford, Madison Dockter and Lyndsay Craigmyle scored the Warriors’ baskets in the second period.

  • Spotlight shines on Hartford’s good works

    When Eminence Elementary Principal Mike Doran asked the 800 students to stand if they’ve been affected by the work of Debbie Hartford, almost every youth gathered in the gym Thursday for a special assembly rose to their feet.
    Most people probably know that Hartford gets involved as the director of Family Resources and Youth Services, Doran said. Maybe they can think of eight or nine ways she works to improve Eminence, but Doran could think of more than 21 tasks that Hartford takes on.

  • Grant gets more jail time

    Brandon Grant came to court Thursday expecting to be sentenced and released, but instead will have to serve an additional 40 days.
    Grant, who pleaded guilty to two counts of torture of a dog or cat with serious physical injury or death in December, had been released from jail pending his sentencing hearing. When he missed a required visit with his probation officer on Dec. 23, a bench warrant was issued for his arrest. He was taken into custody and had been in jail since Jan. 23 when he appeared in front of Henry County Circuit Court Judge Karen Conrad last week.
