    Two initiatives this weekend will allow Henry County residents to safely rid themselves of unused and/or expired medication.

    Both prescription and over-the-counter drugs may be dropped off at either the Henry County Courthouse in New Castle or at the Kentucky State Police Post 5 in Campbellsburg from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 25.

     

  • Ladycats end streak with two soccer losses

    Ending their three-game winning streak — the longest ever for a soccer program started three years ago — the Henry County Ladycats dropped games to Oldham County and Spencer County last week.

    The Ladycats, who were coming off consecutive wins over Shelby County, Owen County and Bryan Station, took a 6-0 loss to Oldham last Monday night, then took an 11-2 loss to Spencer County on Thursday. The Cats are currently 4-5 overall.

    A Smithfield man charged with murder and driving under the influence will serve 10 years under a plea agreement entered in Oldham Circuit Court last week.

    Alan Parrish was indicted in 2009 for murder and driving under the influence after a Sept. 1, 2009, accident claimed the life of a New Castle man. Thanks to a plea deal with the Commonwealth’s Attorney, he will not face a murder trial later this year.

     

  • Cedar Lake thanks county for support

    On behalf of Cedar Lake Lodge, and particularly our 130 employees who make their home in Henry County, we want to thank everyone who has aided, encouraged, supported or welcomed the addition of our Cedar Lake Lodge Park Place homes in the new Henry County Recreational and Services Park.  We’ve long enjoyed our close kinship with Henry County and it is now an even stronger bond.

  • Most wins in five years for EHS volleyball

    The Eminence volleyball team’s 2-1 win over Bardstown High School last Thursday night gave the Lady Warriors four wins, their most in five years.

    This year, the improving squad has beaten Evangel Christian on Aug. 10, Bardstown on Aug. 26, Gallatin County on Sept. 7 and Bardstown again last week for a 4-10 overall record. With six matches still remaining, it’s already the best mark since 2005.

  • Wildcats pull off the shocker

    In what was one of the biggest wins in program history, the Henry County football team rallied in the fourth quarter to erase a 15-point deficit and upset Anderson County, 45-42.

    Friday night’s shocker was a monumental moment for the Wildcats, who never gave up. Trailing 42-27 entering the final quarter, the Cats scored two touchdowns, converted on a 2-point conversion to tie the score, stopped Anderson on three straight plays, and kicked a 29-yard field goal with just 27 seconds remaining to put them ahead for good.

  • Eminence drops its third game

    Following a recurring storyline this year, Dre Banta carried the load offensively, Shiven Harris carried the load defensively and the Eminence football team took a loss against a tough opponent.

    After Saturday night’s 34-13 defeat to Bishop Brossart, EHS coach Steve Frommeyer said his players are getting better but they are facing tough competition that has left them at 1-3 overall. So far this year, they have beaten Burch High School in West Virginia, while losing to Bethlehem, Kentucky Country Day and Bishop Brossart.

  • Regarding “Security breach closes Home Health Agency”

    The Henry County Home Health Agency opened in 1976 in New Castle, and provided services to patients in Henry, Oldham, Trimble and Oldham Counties. I worked there from 1997 to 1999 with the last few years as supervisor/coordinator. I retired in 1999 and returned from 2008 to July 1 2010 in the nurse consultant/coordinator position (the eighth coordinator since 1999). In the early 1980s, four counties chose to join together to form the North Central District Health Department for economical as well as to be able to provide better services to the communities.

  • Ladycats have two-game letdown on volleyball court

    As the Henry County volleyball team enters an important stretch of matches, the Ladycats took a step backward last week.

    Now, head coach Jon Kasten said he needs his Cats to take two steps forward.

    Henry beat Western Hills (2-1) last Tuesday night and lost to Martha Layne Collins (2-0) on Thursday in two games Kasten described as letdowns. The Western win gave Henry five straight match victories — even though it was not near its best outing — and Collins was Henry’s first loss since Aug. 26.

  • Cats never give up

    Friday night’s football showdown at Anderson County was not supposed to be a showdown at all. The host Bearcats were supposed to jump out to an early lead, then cruise in for an unchallenged win. They were supposed to score early and often, perhaps winning by three to four touchdowns. The 5-A team that beat 3-A Henry County 42-7 last season was supposed to do the same again this time around.

    The Wildcats, however, never got that memo.
