  • EHS girls fall to Whitefield

    The Eminence Warriors girls’ basketball team traveled to Louisville Thursday night to take on the Whitefield Academy Lady Wildcats and fell 49-42.
    The Warriors fell behind in the first quarter 18-12 before closing the halftime margin to four points at 27-23 going into the locker room.
    Eminence continued to try to fight their way back into the lead. “We came out of halftime with a 7-0 run to take the lead,” coach Bill Covington said.

  • Warriors win another thriller

    For certain athletes time runs slowly in tense, hectic moments. When that happens, it’s usually bad for their opponents.

    On Dec. 18, when everyone else was scurrying frantically for the ball, Brandon Mitchell calmly fought his way between Owen County’s twin towers-Carson Williams and Justin Shelton-and the basket.

    Trent Overall’s 3-point shot glanced off the front of the rim and fell into Mitchell’s hand with about 3 seconds on the clock.

  • A sports fan’s Christmas wish list

    With another Christmas behind us and a new year fast approaching, I thought I might share my sports wish list for 2013.

    1. A Warrior-Wildcat district final. This season it may be more likely than at any time in recent memory. The Warriors are rolling right now, while the Wildcats are struggling, but the young Wildcats will improve as the season goes on and I believe they will be playing their best ball down the stretch when it counts the most.

  • Smith files suits against County

    Terri Smith — the Henry County woman accused in December 2011 of more than 200 counts of animal cruelty — has filed two lawsuits against the county and Animal Control Officer Dan Flinkfelt.

    Smith is suing the county for the wrongful death of her husband, Kenneth, as well as what the suit claims was the county’s failure to sell Smith’s animals at fair market value, intentional infliction of emotional distress, harassment and unwarranted humiliation.

  • EHS students go to the school of rock

    Three Eminence High School freshmen and Curtis Moss, Eminence Independent Schools’ Music Director have turned music class into a rock band.

    Travis Fahey, Jay Monroe and Meagan Riley play traditional band instruments for the first 45 minutes of band class. The three students and Moss set aside another hour for dueling distorted Les Paul guitars accompanied by Riley’s belting vocals for school supervised sonic goodness.

    The ultimate goal for the band, so far unnamed, is to make a show out of it.

  • Ready to roll for snow

     State and county road crews ready salt trucks for the county’s more than 400 miles of roadways in anticipation of the winter storm season.

    At press time, Henry County’s forecast included rain and a 40 percent chance of snow with light accumulation in parts of the county Friday. Before dawn Friday morning, rain turned to snow, and on some roads, rested on patches of ice.

  • Schools reexamine safety

    Local school superintendents and law enforcement agencies at the city, county and state level say the tragedy in Connecticut will improve the security of local schools with continued coordination and collaboration between all agencies.

  • Cats get thriller win over Carroll

     

    It was just his sixth varsity start. But junior guard Landon New played beyond his experience at Carroll County, finding his range from beyond the 3-point line, and his stroke at the free throw line, to lead the Cats with 18 points in a crucial 59-57 district win.

    The Wildcats came into the game needing a win against a district opponent. The Wildcats had opened 0-2 in district play after falling to Eminence and Gallatin. The task appeared to be difficult — Carroll came into the game undefeated in all games at 4-0.
