  • McClish slam fuels Cats' win

    Seth Williams was already pitching a good game for the Wildcats last week against Williamstown.

    In five complete innings of work, he coughed up just five hits, struckout nine and allowed no walks in the first round of the North Central Kentucky Conference tournament.

    But Aaron McClish had a good day, too. McClish, was 4-4 at the plate, including a grand slam for extra flavor.

    That grand slam, a no-doubt shot to left field, came as part of a seven-run fourth inning that gave the Cats an 11-0 lead.

  • Track Cats Advance to State

    High school track and field athletes work throughout their season with the goal of having their best day at the regional track meet at the end of the year.

    With that in mind the Henry County Wildcat track team put that work on to the test last week, ending the season with personal records on May 8 at the Class AA Region 3 track championships hosted by North Oldham High School.

  • Lady Cats drop Owen

    Errors can be downright painful. In games against Walton-Verona and Carroll County last week, the Henry County Lady Cats felt just how painful those errors can be.

    The Walton-Verona Bearcats used strong hitting and took advantage of 9 Lady Cat errors to pull away for a 17-6 win on Thursday night. The game was close early at 9-6 after three innings but the Bearcats pulled away in the final inning for the comfortable win.

  • Baseball Warriors fall to Bardstown

    The Eminence Warriors baseball team traveled to Bardstown to take on the Tigers for the second time in eight days and fell 15-4.

  • Free will pays off or you pay for it

    The recent events in Cleveland at first left me perplexed.

    Ariel Castro held three women captive, one for at least 10 years, and his neighbors never knew it nor suspected it.

    Castro allegedly fathered a child with one of his captives, made the woman give birth in a kiddie pool and not one neighbor heard a thing.

    Residents who lived in the neighborhood never suspected a thing from the bus driver/musician who played baseball with children at local parks.

  • General Assembly has come a long way with innovation

    By Rick Rand

     

    Kentucky has gotten a lot of attention over the years when it comes to finding innovative ways to govern.  Our education reforms of the 1990s were hailed as national models, for example, and we are the only state to permanently dedicate half of our annual tobacco settlement payments to agriculture, a move that has played a key role in the industry’s record sales in recent years.
