    The Henry County Wildcats hosted Anderson County Feb. 28 in the first game of the Eighth Region tournament and fell victim to a torrid second quarter drought as the Bearcats outscored them 21-6.

    Both teams started the game playing very deliberately. Henry County’s first possession lasted 55 seconds and resulted in a basket in the lane by Trevor Hardin.

    Anderson answered with three consecutive baskets to lead 6-2 with 4:49 left in the first period.

  • It’s too quiet now as the downtown continues to change

    Ever since Chat ’N’ Nibble closed, it’s been way too quiet here on South Penn Avenue.
    Unfortunately, the Henry County Local remains the last business standing where folks come to work every day on our block.
