  • Welcoming a new member of the family

    This year in time for the holidays, Beth and I decided to give ourselves a present. We adopted. 

    Perhaps it’s not the greatest outcome of all time for our new little one — he’s consigned to a small box for several hours most days; he eats like a pig, has already doubled in size and chews like a fiend; and strangers may well point and laugh at his antics.

  • Biggest Blue fans: Mathis and Watts

     

    Editor’s note: We did an informal survey via Facebook to find out who the biggest UK fan in Henry County is. After nominations closed Friday the “sports department” sat down to analyze the data and came up with a tie. Linda Sarrett Mathis, a teacher at Henry County High School, and Darlene Watts of Eminence are such ardent fans that we could not deny either the right to be called the Biggest Big Blue Fan.

    Watts and Mathis did not take the traditional course towards big Blue fandom.

  • Cold weather means it's hoops time

    Cooler temperatures have finally arrived and that is a good signal that it is time to focus the local hoops scene. It also doesn’t hurt the University of Louisville football team imploded against Houston ending the national title dreams of local pigskin fans. And if you watched the first period of the UK football game against Austin Peay… well that would make any sports fan long for a round leather ball.

  • Meet the Wildcats

    The Henry County boys and girls basketball teams put on a show for their fans Thursday night at the third annual Meet the Wildcats introductory scrimmage.

    The night featured the introduction of not only the teams, but also a brand new video board hanging on the west wall of Roy L. Winchester gymnasium.

    The screen was used as part of the introduction of the players and to help get the Wildcat faithful fired up for the upcoming season.

  • Extension to offer a four-hour self-defense class

    Although no one wants to think about the dangers in the world around us, the fact is that they are closer than we think.
    For example, there are 57 registered sex offenders in Henry County and another 171 in the surrounding counties.
    According to the Bluegrass Rape Crisis Center, in the United States, one in six women have experienced an “attempted or completed rape” and most rape victims are under 18 when first assaulted.

  • Does scours get your cattle operation down?

    Every year, I hear producers discuss calf scours in their herds, and every year, those same producers will complain about growth rates of their calves and calf death.
    Scours is defined by neonatal calf diarrhea occurring within the first three weeks of a calf’s life.
    Rotavirus, coronavirus, bacteria (E. coli K99; Clostridium perfringens Type C, Salmonella spp.) and the parasite Cryptosporidia are the most common causes of neonatal calf diarrhea.

  • Let’s talk turkey about food safety

    It’s nearly Thanksgiving, and soon delicious, juicy turkeys will take center stage at many of our holiday meals.
    It’s so important that these birds are properly cooked and prepared, because we don’t want anyone to get sick from a food-borne illness.
    It doesn’t matter whether you purchase a fresh or frozen turkey. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has cooking safety tips for both on its Food Safety and Inspection Service website.

  • A great day for Kentucky and America

    By Governor Matt Bevin

    History was made last Tuesday in both the Commonwealth and the nation. A political outsider won the presidency and did so while ignoring conventional political wisdom regarding campaign tactics. More importantly for the Commonwealth, a seismic political shockwave was felt across our state. 

  • Opinions are like noses, we all have one

    Speaking in absolutes will never benefit anyone.

    Classifying an entire segment of the population based on the thoughts, beliefs, words or actions of a few in that group devalues inherent individual belief systems. We are all individuals to be held accountable for our own actions, but in the end, we are far more alike than we are different.
