  • Be a Family Day STAR

    Seven Counties Services Regional Prevention Center

     

    When I was growing up, we knew dinner was on the table by 6 p.m.

     

    We always ate together as a family every night (except when my brother had practice for basketball or baseball, my sister with orchestra and plays and me with track or softball).  Even with our extracurricular activities, we ate together more often than not.  It was a time of talking with each other about our day at school, work, friends, family etc.

    Marshall’s Bottom was so named for the first family to settle this remote area of Henry County in the 1800s.

    Harrod’s grandparents, Evan and Katherine Harrod were Lockport natives, both born in 1902. They married at 14, but didn’t have children until they were 28 years old.

  • HC 2-0 over EHS in first county matchup

    Jon Kasten had to leave school after lunch due to health issues but his absence did little to slow down the Henry County Ladycats as they came away with a 2-0 win over cross-county rivals Eminence.

    Monday night’s matchup between the two high schools separated by just four miles went as expected with Henry never seriously challenged. The Lady Warriors hung with the Ladycats in the early portion of both games, but left Henry’s new gym with 25-14 and 25-15 losses in the best-of-three series. Henry improved its record to 9-4, while Eminence dropped to 1-9.
