  • 54% is not acceptable

    The statistics were not stellar: Only about 80 percent of Henry County Public Schools students graduate. Little more than half go on to college. More than 40 percent of HCHS students have developmental needs in at least one subject area.

    That was the data presented by HCPS Superintendent Tim Abrams to the board of education on Jan. 13. And that was the data necessary to frame the new core content standards being implemented as part of Senate Bill 1.

  • Berry: ‘All one school’

    The sense of unity was palpable.

    Eminence Middle School Cheerleaders led a cheer — the last in their Braves uniforms. Middle and high school basketball players took to a shiny new court for one-on-one matches. A slideshow of Warriors past, present and future drew cheers.

    It was all part of the dedication of the new gym floor at the Eminence Community Life Center, and an announcement that all grades would be Warriors.

  • Sullivan joins legal team at Zaring Law

    In the Henry County criminal justice system, there are many lawyers who work together to provide clients a good outcome. Two recently joined forces. This is their story.

    Alan Zaring has practiced law in New Castle ever since he passed the bar in 1998. He clerked for John Berry at Berry and Floyd, then worked at the firm for three years. Zaring opened his own office in June 2003 at the corner of Main and East Cross Main Streets.

  • Hay, the weather is quite concerning

    The drought of 2010 is fresh in the minds of most Henry County farmers: they are reminded of it every day when they feed their livestock.  With no regrowth late in the year, our abundant early harvest of hay is now considered a ‘limited’ supply, and the winter we are having is making our supply even more limited.  Will we be short?  On some farms, the answer is yes, unless spring grass comes early.

  • Change of plans

    I had it all planned out. I was going to take the family to watch the Globetrotters at the KFC Yum! Center this past Sunday, enjoy all the action on the court, and try my best to write a column about the experience afterward.

  • Eminence boys string together two wins

    One came in overtime and the other in a blowout, and both had the same outcome: a win.

    For the first time this season, the Eminence boys’ basketball team pieced together a winning streak and scored more than 70 points in a game. The Warriors lost to Anderson County (79-53) last Thursday night, but beat Dayton (79-75) and Covington Latin (75-56) the following two days. They entered this week at 4-13 overall.

    “We’ve gotten a couple of really good wins and our confidence level is up right now,” Eminence coach Chris Nethery said.

  • Cats snap six-game streak

    The longest winning streak for the Henry County boys’ basketball team since Derek Springate took over the program last season hit a road block with two losses.

    The Wildcats entered last week with six straight wins, dating back to the Henry County Invitational Tournament in December, but lost to both Grant County (71-60) and East Jessamine (53-51) for a 9-8 overall record.

  • So close for EHS girls

    The Warriors were close to pulling off their first win in more than a month, but had to settle with a 52-50 loss to Covington Latin instead.

    The Eminence girls’ basketball team, which has not won a game since beating Evangel Christian on Dec. 7, had the lead with less than two minutes to go on Saturday night. But the visiting Covington squad went on an 8-0 spurt and held on to its advantage in the closing seconds. It was the 14th straight loss for the Warriors and dropped them to 1-15 overall.

  • Clark scores 62 in three games

    Taylor Clark scored 62 points in three games last week and the Henry County girls’ basketball team was able to string together three consecutive wins for the first time this season.

    Led by Clark in all three outings, the Ladycats beat North Oldham (39-31) last Wednesday, Grant County (55-42) on Friday and Spencer County (53-42) on Saturday during a four-day stretch. The Cats started the week with a 5-7 record, and finished it at 8-7.

  • Gallatin loss secures Henry County the fourth seed

    Regardless how the Henry County girls’ basketball team plays this Saturday in what will be its final 31st District game in the regular season, the Ladcyats will be the fourth seed in the district tournament next month.
