  • Jumping overboard to save one's life

    After preaching a particularly challenging sermon, I received the following text from a church member: “Your sermon made me uncomfortable today. Think I’m gonna have to switch churches so I can feel better.” 

    I understand my church member’s sentiment. Sometimes things hurt so badly and life is so stressful, we long for escape.

  • Milestone moments just days away for grads

    In anyone’s lifetime, there are only a handful of milestone moments — your wedding day, birth of a child, starting your own business, the first day of retirement.

    But for about 200 young people in our county, the milestone moment of graduating from high school is only a few days away. They’ll be taking their first wobbly steps into adulthood by heading off to college, starting full-time jobs or packing for basic training in the military.

  • Lady Cats clinch top seed with four wins


    Inclement weather made last week very important for the Henry County Lady Cats as they played four games against district foes that would ultimately decide the seeding of the 31st District tournament.

    The Lady Cats took care of business by sweeping a doubleheader from Gallatin County on May 2, coming from behind against Carroll County on May 4 and winning versus Eminence Friday at home.

  • Wildcats shut down Bearcats again, 8-1


    The Henry County Wildcats had another week of rained out games but managed to play well in the one game in between weather systems last week. Henry County defeated the Kentucky Country Day Bearcats 1-0 on April 25 in Louisville when Jaydon Berry pitched a shutout. Berry was back on the mound again Thursday and gave up one unearned run as the Wildcats had an easier time with the Bearcats this time around.

    Henry County allowed the Bearcats a run in the top of the first inning on a single, a two-base error and another single.

  • Warriors' comeback falls short


    The Eminence Warriors traveled to Fort Knox May 2 to take on the Eagles and lost by one run after falling behind early and coming back to make it a close game.

    Fort Knox jumped on the Warriors for four runs in the bottom of the first and two more in the bottom of the second to take a 6-1 lead. The Warriors’ only run in that stretch came in the top of the second when Trey Gregory singled and came home on a hit by Alec Spraybury.

  • EHS beats Frankfort


    The Eminence Warriors softball team used two big innings at the plate to secure a victory over the Frankfort Lady Panthers May 5 in Frankfort.

    Eminence jumped on top 2-0 in the second inning. Amiya Hunt singled with one out, stole second and advanced to third on a single by Maddie McKinley. Bella Stringer brought both runners home with a double to centerfield.

    Henry County High School senior Gavin Jameson signed a letter of intent Friday to play basketball for the Thomas More Saints next year in a ceremony in the Henry County High School Library.

    Jameson, an all-region selection for the Wildcats this year, will join former teammate Austin Young on the Saints’ roster next season.

    When asked about his opportunity to play at the collegiate level, Jameson said, “I’m just ready to get down there and start playing.”

  • HCHS track hosts all-comers meet


    The Henry County High School track team won both the boys and girls competitions at home May 3 in an all-comers meet with Trimble County, Iroquois and Eminence.

    Several Wildcats won events, but the performance of the day was turned in by Connor Finley who ran the 110-meter hurdle race in 16.1 seconds to beat two competitors from Trimble County. It was Finley’s best time of the season.
