    After playing the first nine holes of the NCKC tournament held at Sugar Bay Golf Course in Warsaw on Sept. 23, Henry County senior MacKenzie Peyton was in jeopardy of losing her first NCKC title in four years. Peyton was six over after the first seven holes.

    But she pulled her game together in the final 12 holes and had five birdies and seven pars to finish at one-over 72 and take her fourth consecutive North Central Kentucky Conference title by two strokes over her eighth-grade teammate Maddie Hensley, who had her best round of the year.

    After waiting for more than 30 minutes for all the other golfers in the NCKC tournament to finish, Alex Hadden stepped to the tee box on the first hole at Sugar Bay Golf Course in Warsaw on Sept. 23 for the most important tee shot of his young life. Hadden had tied with Justin Trusty of Owen County for the lead after 18 holes and was now in a sudden death playoff for the NCKC individual title.

  • Upcoming election too important to miss

     In just about a month, voters in Kentucky will take center stage in America. 

    The entire country is watching the McConnell-Grimes senatorial race, and I hope we don’t embarrass ourselves. 

    Sadly, voter turnout is notoriously low in parts of Kentucky, Henry County being no exception. If one-third of all registered voters actually make it to the polls, it is considered a strong turnout. I think we can do better than that.
