  • Thanks for donations

    I wanted to thank all the Henry Countians who donated Christmas Cards (old and new) to Henry County’s Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary. With your help we reached our goal of 1,000 cards. The cards were distributed to the Veterans’ Hospitals in Louisville and Lexington, as well as the Providence and Twin Oaks homes in Henry County.
    Next year with your help, we hope to include residents at additional veterans’ facilities. Now is the time to start saving cards for next year’s project.

  • Annual event never ceases to amaze

    By today’s standards, it’s not much of a show.
    There are no flashing lights, no loud, chest-thumping music and very few moving parts.

    To the contrary, the manger scene held nightly in the little town of Bethlehem is amazingly captivating.

    The Henry County Wildcats hosted Owen County in a district matchup Friday night and were the victims of poor transition defense as they fell to the Rebels by a score of 71-54.

    “We played well in the half court but their transition points margin was exactly the margin of the final score,” Coach Enoch Welch. “That really was the story of the game. Their guards got too many points in transition because we got caught in the middle of the floor. We did not get back on defense fast enough.”
