  • Making the trip back to Henry County

    By Candy Clarke

    Ahhh. It feels so good to be back in Henry County! After more than nine days on the road; our little place in Henry County could rival the Biltmore House. At least in my eyes. Even Gunner Puppy was happy not to ride any more — a rarity since he loves to ride in any type of vehicle. It’s a long trip from North Pole, Alaska, to Henry County, but well worth every minute of it.

    How long have you been on the council?

    Came on, I think to replace someone, 3 or 4 years.

    What do you want to accomplish in your city in the next two years?

    Well, I’d like to see a little growth. That’s a long shot, maybe, but you can always hope. I’d like to see the town clean, and taken care of. I enjoy the park and hope people that will make use of it.

  • Wildcats claw past Panthers

    With few exceptions, the Henry County Wildcats defense put on a clinic last week at Elizabethtown.

    The Cats traveled to Elizabethtown on Friday and came away with a 21-7 district win against the Panthers.

    The early going was tough for the Cats as E-town struck first at 10:12 into the game on a 52-yard touchdown run by Panther quarterback Josh Williams. Henry County head coach Jason Spencer said the touchdown was the result of two missed assignments. The extra-point attempt was good and the Panthers took an early 7-0 lead.

    It’s not because I’ve run out of embarrassing stories to tell on myself. Unfortunately that’ll never happen either.
