  • Register now for 4-H summer camp

    Henry County youth will be heading to Lake Cumberland 4-H Camp on Tuesday morning, July 10.  

    We will be returning Friday afternoon on July 13.

    The theme for this year’s camp is Camp Madagascar.  Campers will enjoy participating in the following classes:  swimming, canoeing, fishing, low ropes, high ropes, archery, rifle, crafts, nature, caving and much, much more.  In the evening there will be field games, talent shows, skits, line dancing, and, of course, Sally Down the Alley, a 4-H camping tradition.

  • Rabbit and poultry processing training on April 11

    There will be a mobile processing unit training at 9 a.m. April 11 at the Kentucky State University Research Farm located at 1525 Mills Lane in Frankfort. This is a day-long training, with the morning session in a classroom. The afternoon session is a  hands-on training of both rabbit and poultry.

    The cost of the training is $75 for certification for the first two years and $50 annually after that. Lunch will be included during the training.

  • Think twice before using instant tax refund

    Instead of waiting for tax refunds from the Internal Revenue Service, nearly 10 million consumers, many from low- to moderate-income families, borrow against part or all of their expected tax refunds. These refund loans are heavily marketed by paid tax preparers and immediately put cash into the consumer’s hands, making it seem to be a quick and “painless” way to get cash.

    The quick cash comes at a price, however.

  • Warriors get much-needed win

    For much of the 2011-2012 season, the Eminence Warriors have substituted out of necessity.

    But last week against the Kentucky School for the Deaf, they substituted because they could, as they cruised to a 53-5 victory.

    “We only played our starters for about 12 minutes of the game,” head coach Bill Covington said. “It was a good chance for our younger players, who were able to get in the game and play.”

  • CAL hot-shots too much for Cats

    Just on the edge of becoming a really good team, the Henry County Wildcats fell Friday night to a hot-shooting Christian Academy of Louisville.

    It was another tough contest for the Cats as they ran into a team seasoned by games against some of the top teams in the state. Cal have played two of the state’s top ranked teams in recent weeks, hanging tough against both No. 1 ranked Trinity and Louisville Eastern.

  • Lady Cats grind out wins at Spencer, KCD

    Sometimes basketball teams win games with sharp shooting, fast-break layups and great passing. Other times they just have to grind out results when they are at less than their best.

    The Henry County Lady Cats’ weekend victories over Spencer County on Friday night and Kentucky Country Day on Saturday would go in the latter category.

    After a slow start the Lady Cats pulled away late to defeat the Lady Bears by a score of 32-25. On Saturday in a physical defensive battle, the Lady Cats hung in to get the 33-30 win against KCD.

  • Warriors fall to Owen, Carroll

    When the Eminence Warriors first squared off against Owen County on Jan. 24, it was a rough 82-36 win for the Rebels.

    Eminence knew what it needed to do against the streaky-fast, hot-shooting team.

    “Our game plan was to hold the ball,” Eminence head coach Chris Nethery said. “If they didn’t have it, they couldn’t score.”

  • Paynter signs with Cumberlands

    Henry County High School senior Victoria Paynter made history Friday.

    The senior soccer player became the first female player from the school to sign a letter of intent to play college soccer when she signed with the University of the Cumberlands.

    She was joined in the high school library with family, friends and former coaches to share in the momentous occasion. Paynter’s parents, Leesa and Skip, observed the signing, along with her former coaches, Shannon Snider and Charlie Pait.

  • Our future under the health care law

    When the health care law was passed, the Democrats cleverly front-loaded some of the goodies, but left the most troubling mandates and requirements to be implemented at a later date.  When the Obama administration recently released its contraception mandate, we all got a glimpse of what is coming from Washington as the health care law is implemented.

  • When a receipt is more than a receipt

    File those Receipts

    When we bought our home in 1992, we installed ceiling fans in every room. I know decorators hate them, but who cares what they think? Anyway, in 2008, my Mom reached up and pulled the chain on the fan in her bedroom and kaboom! It shorted out and burst into a ball of fire.

    Thankfully, my husband was home and he was able to disconnect it and save the night without anyone getting hurt or the house burning down.
