  • Snowy odds and ends

    After an extremely busy week of high school basketball last week I was looking forward to a lighter schedule of games for this week’s issue.

    Six games seemed much more manageable and I was looking forward to giving each game a little more coverage. When there are 11 games on the schedule as there was last week it’s hard to do them all justice.

    But then Mother Nature decided to give us just enough snow over the weekend to cancel or postpone three of those games. That left me with the prospect of a very sparse issue for this week.

  • 'What they're good at, we're not'

    In a game rescheduled because of snow, the Henry County Lady Cats fell to Gallatin County, 87-39.

    Gallatin County was hot from the start, putting up 34 points in the first quarter on 15-of-17 shooting, including three 3-pointers.

    “They started off really hot,” Henry County coach Todd Gilley said. “If we made any small mistake on the defensive end, they took advantage and hit a jump shot. They attacked very quickly and even though our girls were back on defense, they attacked before we could set our defense.”

  • Third Quarter's the Charm

    The third quarter’s the charm for the Eminence Warriors.

    In games against Williamstown and Carroll County, the Warriors outscored their opponents by wide margins in the third period to blitz both opponents.

    Against Carroll County, the Warriors jumped out to a 6-1 lead as Jalen Dixie hit consecutive 3-pointers on the Warriors first two possessions.

  • Warriors fall to Lady Tigers

    With just 8 players available, the Eminence girls basketball team was shorthanded as they traveled to Bardstown Monday.

    The Warriors fell to the Lady Tigers, 55-14; thanks in part to a decisive, second-quarter run.

    With such a short roster, the Warriors were faced with the prospect of seeing pressure defense from the outset. Bardstown’s pressure was too much as turnovers piled up for EHS.

  • Ducks don’t argue for a moral responsibility

    I can’t stand some of the things my tax money gets spent on.

    After talking to our local state legislators about the issues in the upcoming session, I am equally optimistic and equally ruffled about the feathers on who gets my money and where it goes.

    Taxes ruffle everyone’s feathers except for the ducks.

    Despite my ongoing negotiations with my boss and the corporation that owns us, they still don’t see my reasoning for a six-figure salary. For that reason, I am not the richest writer in the world and spend modestly.

  • It’s your privilege: Give a heart on Valentine’s Day

  • Early year pruning tips

    As spring approaches, many homeowners begin to think about their yard’s landscape. To ensure healthy spring plants, homeowners may want to prune the trees and shrubs around their home. But do not just prune for the sake of pruning, make sure you have a valid reason for pruning before you begin.

  • Thompson house built in early 1800s

    One of the last remaining properties in the series on the Historic Registry in Henry County, the Thompson House captured the imagination of its builders, the current owners and most certainly its future visitors.

    Almost secretively nestled behind a frontage of trees, the house sits between KY 22 and Giltner Lane.

    The most distinguishing quality is the house’s unique appearance.

    The house’s architectural style marries themes from the Greek Revival and Italianate period.
