  • Busy week at the Capitol

    Headlines in recent days have made it clear that Kentucky’s problems with heroin, other illegal opioids and prescription drug abuse, continue to take lives and devastate communities at a shocking rate.

  • Musical memories compose happiest times

    I’m sure my former teachers would find it disappointing that I can’t readily recall fifth grade geography (we had to label all the counties in Kentucky), eighth grade Earth science (is that limestone or sandstone?) or tenth grade geometry (tangent and co-tangent – no clue). However, I find it remarkable that I can remember the lyrics to a song I last heard 20 years ago when it comes on the radio.

    The Henry County Lady Cats hosted the Seneca Redhawks in their regular season finale and came away with a 56-21 win.

    The Lady Cats used pressure defense early in the game to jump out to a 9-0 lead.

    Katherine Buckler started the scoring with a 3-pointer before Ashley Mullins scored on a put back. Janey Thompson then hit a 15-footer from the baseline before Aleah Tuggle hit two free throws.

    Seneca broke into the scoring column with a layup with 5:23 left but Tuggle answered with a 3-pointer to make it 12-2.

    The Eminence Warriors girls basketball team went on the road for two games to finish their season and came away with two wins that should give them momentum going into the postseason.

    EHS 52 Whitesville Trinity 42

    The Warriors got off to a strong start against the Lady Raiders as they led 12-4 after one period of play. Tavi West, Emilie Ethington and Madison Dockter all scored four points in the opening period.

  • Jenkins makes all region team, Hinkel snubbed

    The 8th Region Basketball Coaches Association released it’s all-region team last week and there was at least one surprise on that team. Or I should say not on that team.

    While Eminence High School’s Kemryn Jenkins deservedly made the team, Henry County’s Zach Hinkel did not.

    Jenkins was the region’s leading scorer at 27.4 points per game in the regular season. He shot 63.5 percent from the field and 48.8 percent from behind the 3-point arc. Those are staggering numbers for any player at any level and against any competition.
