  • Keepers mission: great seafood close to home

    To paraphrase the old adage, give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day, give a man a take-out’s phone number and he’ll pick up tasty fish for the whole family on his way home from work.

    Keeper’s Restaurant in the old bank building in Jericho (3350 Lake Jericho Road) opened March 9 with one simple mission in mind. “We’d thought about it for a long time,” said owner Pam Foree, “how great it would be to not have to drive 30-40 miles for good seafood.”

  • It’s eight straight wins for Wildcats

    Continuing what appears to be a perfect peak, the Henry County baseball team has extended its winning streak to eight games entering the final week of the regular season.

    Your principal says you’re career and college-ready, where do you want to attend college?
    Northern Kentucky University is a good option or U of L. I will major in orthodontics and minor in agriculture business. “Mrs. Davie (ag teacher) is so passionate, she made me like it,” Carothers said.

    What’s your career choice?
    I want to be an orthodontist. I’ve had braces twice and my orthodontist always keeps it upbeat.


    In what might be the most wins the Eminence softball team has ever had in a single season, the Warriors won three more games last week to surpass the 10-win mark and are now 11-7 overall.

    Since records were first kept by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association in 1998, no Eminence softball team has won as many games as this year’s squad. In 2010 Eminence won seven games — its most since 2004 — and this year the Warriors have already done four better entering the final week of the regular season.

  • Ladycats seeded second in district

    When the Henry County softball team takes the field for the 31st District tournament on Monday night, it will be in an unfamiliar position — not as the top seed.

    The Ladycats have been the No. 1 seed and have won the district tournament the last five years — that’s each year since the state’s new alignment in 2006. But this year, they will have to take a different route to get that sixth title, playing as the No. 2 seed behind Gallatin County.
