  • GUEST COLUMN

    Before the global economic crisis, most will remember that we experienced an energy crisis in the summer of 2008.  A gallon of gas cost more than four dollars and the price of oil reached nearly $150 a barrel.  During those months, families, seniors, businesses and schools experienced substantial hardship as a result.

  • Prayers are with families who lost homes

    When I got the news that a house in Eminence had been flattened, possibly by a tornado, Monday morning, my heart leapt into my throat.
    There’s never a good time to have a tornado, but 5 a.m., when most folks are still asleep, certainly is among the worst times it could happen.

    And when I arrived on the scene and saw the devastation for myself, I was stunned that there were as few injuries as there were. That Gregg Williams and his family escaped their home mostly unscathed is simply incredible.

    Likewise for Janet Spies and her family.

  • Ladycats end season against Owen

    It wasn’t the ending coach Todd Gilley was looking for, but he said his Henry County girls’ basketball team played well for 28 out of 32 minutes against Owen County in the first round of the 31st District tournament last Tuesday night.
    Those four minutes were just too costly.

  • Henry advances to district finals with 71-50 win

    With so much riding on the line last Wednesday night — the opportunity to guarantee a spot in the 8th region tournament and to advance to the district finals — it took the Henry County Wildcats a little longer to get rolling. But once they did, it was over quickly.
    Playing in the first round of the 31st District tournament, at Henry County, the host Wildcats only trailed a short time but it took them a while to put away Carroll for good.

  • Henry opens 8th Region against Collins

    In what will be the first-ever meeting between Henry County and newly-formed Martha Layne Collins, the two schools will open the 8th Region tournament at 6:30 p.m. this Wednesday.
    Henry won the 31st District and enters the regional tournament with a 16-14 overall record, while Collins was runners-up in the 30th District and enters at 18-11. With Shelby County splitting into two high schools this year, keeping Shelby and forming Collins, this will be Henry’s first action against the Titans.
