  • MacKenzie Peyton headed to state!

    Winning the North Central Kentucky Conference championship for the first time since the 1990s, the Henry County boys’ golf team came through when it mattered the most.

    The Wildcats hosted the conference tournament last Tuesday at the Henry County Country Club, finishing with a four-person combined score of 339 to win by four strokes. It was the focal point of 2010.

  • Kasten trying to get individuals to ‘play as team’

    After losing two district games last week and winning what could have been the deciding game for the conference championship, Henry County coach Jon Kasten said he has not been pleased with his team’s recent play on the volleyball court.

    The Ladycats were coming off five straight wins before dropping three of their next four. They are now 8-6 overall.

  • Searching for that perfect shade tree

    Most folks who know me can attest that I love being outside.

    My idea of a vacation isn’t sitting up in a hotel for a week — it’s putting my clothes, food and tent in a backpack and hoofing it several miles through the woods for a few days.

    Heck, each year after the fair I retreat to a favorite campground or trail to relax for a week or so.

    A conditional use permit application that would allow Liter’s Quarry in Lockport to complete the purchase of a 62-acre tract adjoining current operations has been tabled until Oct. 25 by the Henry County Board of Adjustments.

    Liter’s Vice-President of Operations Barry Hornback said the tract is needed to expand the mine’s underground area only. “We will not be adding buildings or structures,” he said.

  • It’s a 61-0 win for Warriors to open district play

    On a night with a lot riding on the line, the Eminence football team dominated Bracken County on Friday to open District Four play with a 61-0 victory.

    The Warriors entered the game at 1-3 and were still searching for their first win against an in-state school — the one earlier win came against Burch High School in West Virginia. It was also Eminence’s Homecoming Night and was the opener of a four-week stretch of games against district teams that determines who makes the postseason and who hosts playoff games.

    Just a couple miles east of Defoe is a small white church with a big history.

    Members and ministers past and present packed into Union Baptist Church last weekend to celebrate the church’s 200th anniversary.

    Memories threaded from person to person as people in the congregation stood to add a piece. “I remember that rock wall out front was always full of men,” one woman recalled.

    Gary Parks and Cathy Crane of Pleasureville have been getting a lot of unwanted phone calls lately.

    The caller, “Mr. Griffin,” tells the couple they have won $1 million.

    So, why aren’t they happy about the calls?

    Because it’s a scam.

  • Don’t vote with your heart, vote for the best person for the job

    This is not Washington D.C. but we the people of this town still have a chance to save it. But we have to make a stand and fight for what we believe in and stop living in fear!

    I have lived in Eminence all my life; as the years have passed by, I have watched my city decline. Despite what the “elected politicians” tell us, the sad reality is we are losing businesses and a lot of quality people are moving out of our community.

  • Cats ready to move on after loss

    A week after upsetting Anderson County in what was one of the biggest wins for the Henry County football program, the Wildcats took a 49-13 loss to Owensboro Catholic on Friday night.

    It was not what coach Lyndon Johnson was looking for, especially coming off the huge win against Anderson.

    Owensboro Catholic was ahead 21-0 after the first quarter, scored the game’s first 28 points, did not allow the visiting Wildcats a touchdown until the second half, and cruised in for the 36-point victory.
