  • Wildcats fall to Grant, Shelby Counties

    The Henry County Wildcat soccer team hosted Grant County Sept. 16 and fell to the Braves, 8-1.

    The Cats started slow and found themselves down 3-0 within the first 10 minutes of the game, when Grant County scored on a corner kick that got by a host of Wildcat defenders and was kicked in at the far post by an onrushing Grant County attacker.

    The Cats got a foothold in the game after that, and Gavin Jameson nearly got the first goal for the Cats with 26 minutes left in the half when the Braves’ goalie had to make a diving save to his right.

  • Cross country Cats race at the Horse Park

    At 26:35 Rachel Vegh let loose with a screamer from 30 yards out that was just wide.

  • Past towns swallowed by history

    The method of transportation for goods, services and the general population shaped the birth of towns, cities and county regions.

    The Kentucky River, horse and buggy, the railways, and the interstate have contributed to a town’s prosperity and its disappearance. Larger towns with different names have absorbed micro-communities that once flourished with their own history and landmarks of commerce whether it be a general store, a blacksmith shop or just a riverboat’s stop on its way to or from Frankfort. Henry County has several of these type of towns.

    Saturday, Sept. 7 marked the opening of the archery deer season in Kentucky, a day when thousands of eager hunters wielding bows and wearing camouflage will climb tree stands or hunker down in ground blinds hoping to harvest a “shooter” buck — or at least fill their freezers with quality red meat.
