  • Help celebrate National Second Winds Dreams Day Sept. 15

    On Wednesday, Sept. 14, our Henry County Second Wind Dreams program will help residents at Providence New Castle celebrate the fourth annual National Second Wind Dream’s Day by hosting Elvis as presented by Don Goodfleisch.  
    Everyone always enjoys Elvis, and it seemed a perfect time to host a concert because the very first dream that was provided by founder P.K. Beville as she started the national Second Wind Dreams program in 1997 was an Elvis Concert.

  • Improvements in special education benefit Ky. students

    Before the mid-1970s, special education in our country’s public schools was all but non-existent. Many students were either outright denied the opportunity to attend because of their disability, or they received inferior instruction if they were able to enroll.

    That, thankfully, began to change in 1975, when Congress passed the Education for All Handicapped Children Act and required each state to provide appropriate services in this critical area.

  • Choosing to view the world in a positive light

    I have, at times, been accused of being a Pollyanna. It’s not an overly offensive name to be called, especially in light of the fact I’ve been called much worse.

    As a noun, Pollyanna means “an excessively or blindly optimistic person.” As an adjective, the descriptor takes a bit of a turn, being “unreasonably or illogically optimistic.”

  • Warriors rout Raiders in seasson debut


    The Eminence Warriors’ football team didn’t take long to get new coach Tye Lawson’s tenure off to a good start as they scored on their first possession of the game against Trimble County and went on to win 36-0.

    The Warriors held Trimble County on the first possession of the game and took over on downs at their own 40-yard line.

    Cameron Capps took the first hand off of the season and ran for 14 yards up the middle to set the tone for the rest of the game.

  • Wildcats defeat Carroll


    The Henry County Wildcats golf team traveled to take on Carroll County Aug. 16 and came away with a 168-185 win. Alex Hadden led the way with a 38 followed by Isaac Klempner with a 40. Luke Kent and Will Peyton both shot 45.

    “I was happy with our play against Carroll,” HCHS Coach Ben Roberts said. “The play was a lot slower than we are used to and I thought our kids handled it great. We were able to get a good win over an NCKC team. Considering it was an away match, our kids put up decent scores.
