    The Highland Renaissance site in Eminence will host a 24-hour footrace on March 13-14, starting at 8 a.m. on Saturday and finishing at 9 a.m. on Sunday. Due to Daylight Saving’s Time, which falls during the event, the finishing time has been pushed back one hour to get in the total 24 hours.

  • Survey ranks HC 41st

    Henry County is the 41st healthiest county in Kentucky, according to a recent study.

    For the first time, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Project/University of Wisconsin has assigned a health ranking to every county in the United States.

    Counties are compared to all other counties within a state to come up with the rankings. According to the study’s data, Henry County ranks 41st among Kentucky’s 120 counties.

  • State, county may replace mailboxes

    General Manager

    For some county residents, it’s as much a frustration as the snow itself.

    As the snow clears, they discover that their mailbox is no longer there, seemingly knocked off or otherwise damaged by a snow plow.

  • Thanks to the folks who cleared the way

    Last week, as snow continued to fall, covering not just the landscape but the roads, I was one of those lunatics in the car and on the road — I had to work.

    I fell madly in love with our car last week, as its four-wheel drive held true, and there was nowhere I couldn’t go.

    But still, it was the hard, long, and undoubtedly cold work of a select group of folks that really helped make it possible.

    They had a job that, at times, had to be incredibly frustrating, as snow fell faster than it could be plowed, and then drifted back in tidal waves.

  • Ladycats win county showdown

    Compared to the first time the Eminence girls’ team played cross-county rival Henry County 12 weeks ago, Henry’s head coach Todd Gilley said Eminence has a “much improved basketball team.”

    But Gilley’s squad was on fire last Friday night as the Ladycats knocked down 11 3-pointers and cruised in for a 71-26 victory. The Cats, who also beat Eminence 67-13 in the season opener on Dec. 3, has now won 11 straight games over Eminence dating back to January 2005.

  • ‘Final exam’ for Cats this Wednesday

    Finishing up the regular season with wins over Williamstown and Trimble County, the Henry County boys’ basketball team is now ready for post-season action to start this Wednesday.

    Coach Derek Springate said each team in Kentucky is even at 0-0 and all that really matters are the district tournaments, which start this week. Henry plays Owen County (at Gallatin County High School) in the 31st District tournament on Wednesday at 8 p.m. Springate is stressing to his players the importance of putting the regular season behind them and focusing on Owen.

  • EHS 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament

  • Tornado Drill

    At 10:07 a.m. Tuesday, March 2 the National Weather Service will conduct its 2010 tornado drill throughout Kentucky.

    Henry County Emergency Management services will participate by conducting drills in all county schools as well as factories and businesses.

    HCEM also is offering public awareness presentations about storm preparedness to nursing homes, schools and other agencies on request.

    For more information, contact manager Bruce Owens at 845-4916.

  • Youth Baseball Signups

    The Henry County youth baseball signups will be held Feb. 25 and March 3 from 6-8 p.m. at the 4-H Center inside the Henry County fairgrounds, and again on March 6 from 9 a.m. until noon. Ages range from six to 15.

  • EHS drops final four

    The Eminence boys’ basketball team dropped its final four regular-season games to enter the postseason with a 5-20 record.

    The Warriors, who played Shelby County in the opening round of the 30th District tournament on Tuesday night past deadline, lost to Bellevue (68-61) last Wednesday, Beth Haven (66-41) on Thursday and Berea (53-35) on Saturday for the 5-20 mark.

    Chris Nethery said his squad did improve throughout the course of the season but they never developed that killer instinct.
