  • Impressive wins for Cats!

    Austin Hunsaker told his Henry County baseball players a few weeks ago that they had two choices, and that the fate of the season came down to what they chose — either continue to play poorly, like they were at the time, or play baseball the way they’re capable of to turn the ship around.

    They chose the latter.

  • Cats have seven 1sts at NCKC

    Finishing with seven first-place showings at the North Central Kentucky Conference Championships last Tuesday night on its home track, the Henry County squad finished third in the team standings in both the boys and girls results.

    Cassey Fischer and Eric Phillips won two individual events apiece, while Destany Crawford, Darien Ingram and Jesse Mann added one each. Henry also finished with two second-place and six third-place outings.

  • Another 7th-inning EHS loss

    In what was the third and final time the Eminence softball team played Williamstown this season, the visiting Warriors lost in the bottom of the seventh inning, 6-5, on Thursday night.

    The Warriors beat Williamstown on April 5, then lost to the Demons in the first round of the 8th Region All “A” Classic tournament on April 15 and again on Thursday night.
    The loss, which dropped the Warriors to 7-5 on the season, marked the second straight game that they have lost in the bottom of the seventh inning.

  • Eminence falters in 5th, 6th

    The Warriors just ran out of steam.

    With the game scoreless entering the fifth inning, Trimble County went on a spurt to score the first five runs on the night, then added five more in its next bat to beat Eminence 10-0 on Thursday.

    The Warriors held visiting Trimble scoreless through four innings before faltering down the stretch, allowing the 10 runs in just two innings, which ended the game after six with the mercy-run rule. It dropped the Warriors to 1-19 and gave Trimble its ninth win (9-7) on the season.

  • It starts on the track

    Now that the Kentucky Derby is over, and 20-1 Animal Kingdom surprised the field in becoming this year’s winner, it’s time to turn my attention from the four-legged racers to the two-legged ones.

    The postseason for high school sports in Kentucky starts next week with regional track meets being held all across the state — the anticipated postseason for baseball and softball start the following week with district tournaments. I will admit that it’s been one fast regular season, and the school year already nearing its end is shocking to me.

  • Big week for Henry County softball squad

    With less than two weeks remaining in the regular season, the Henry County softball team still has some important games to get in.

    The Ladycats have three of those games on their radar this week — hosting Seneca for Senior Night on Wednesday, hosting Gallatin County on Thursday for the top seed in the 31st District tournament, and playing Walton-Verona (at Gallatin) this weekend for the North Central Kentucky Conference title.

  • After many years, we got him

    On Sept. 11, 2001, I was on my way to work at Lewis Bakery in Evansville, Ind. I was in the drive-through at a fast food restaurant when the radio station broke in with news.

    That news seemed surreal at first: one jet plane, then another, flew into the Twin Towers. It didn’t seem possible.

    It was just the beginning.

    In the coming days and weeks, we learned who was responsible for the attacks that claimed almost 3,000 lives.

  • Local history

    May 1951
    Local readers will observe that not one arrest was recorded in the May 7 issue. Sheriff Gilbert Carder, in reporting the lack of activity, stated that it appears folks are getting better. He added, however, with the fine weather this week the farmers are rather busy - too busy to get in trouble.

    Mr. and Mrs. George S. Ditto will be weekend guests of Mr. and Mrs. A.J. Quarles in Louisville and will attend the Derby as their guests.

  • Years ago in Henry County

    200 Years Ago
    On May 6, 1811, Samuel Tanner sold four head of horses, four head of cattle, twenty-six head of hogs, three feather beds,  bedsteads and furniture to his son John A. Tanner for the sum of $50 plus the affection he held for his son.
