  • Redefining the ‘B’ word at HCMS

    It’s a word that gets tossed around a lot and is often misapplied, but administrators at Henry County Middle School want their students to understand exactly what bullying means.
    “Bulllying has become a catch-phrase,” said HCMS Guidance Counselor Kim Lineman. “Any time one person has a conflict with another, it’s called bullying, but there is a difference between bullying and peer conflict, which happens and is going to happen.”

  • County needs more Odd Fellows, not less

    You wouldn’t necessarily know it now without being a local history buff, but by the accounts I’ve seen and heard, the Eminence Lodge 140 of the International Order of the Odd Fellows used to be a real local powerhouse.

    I’ve written about the Eminence lodge a couple times recently as they’ve had the misfortune to be the victim of a theft of a big part of their financial assets, which prompted the closing of the long-established fraternal order.

  • Turning lies into truth

    “I’m not sure what to do,” my friend lamented to me.  “If I respond, I may just stir things up even more.  On the other hand, if I remain quiet, people are likely to think I have something to hide.”

    My friend is a public servant, working in one of those jobs that, no matter what he does, he creates detractors, if not out-right enemies. I asked him once why he did it.  He looked at me like I had just arrived from an alien world and then told me.

  • Wildcats fall to Bearcats


    The Henry County Wildcats football team traveled to Walton-Verona Friday night to take on the Bearcats and got off to a slow start that doomed them to a three-touchdown loss.

    “We turned the ball over early and they took advantage of that,” HCHS Coach Jason Spencer said. “They got a safety on a strip-sack on our first possession and then we had to kickoff from the 20 and they had good field position that led to their first touchdown.”

  • HCHS gets first win at Grant County


    The Henry County Lady Cats traveled to Louisville Sept. 6 to take on the Pleasure Ridge Park Lady Panthers and fell 4-3.

    The Lady Cats struck first in the game when Megan Abney scored 12 minutes into the game after dribbling through the defense to get into a one-on-one situation with the goalkeeper.

    The Lady Cats added to their lead when Savannah Medley was fouled just outside the 18-yard box. Abney took the free kick from about 23 yards away and netted her second goal of the game.

  • Wildcats fall to Walton


    The Henry County Wildcats traveled to Walton-Verona for a soccer game Sept. 7 and fell to the Bearcats 6-1.
