  • Taking LEGOs to the Xtreme

    Eminence Middle and High School Robo Challenge Xtreme teams learn collaboration, teamwork and problem solving while building and programming LEGO robots in Steve Metcalfe’s LEGO Robotics Club.

    Students design and program their own LEGO robots to achieve 14 different missions for themed competitions at the regional and state levels. Students can’t rely on remote control, but embrace the disciplines of math, science, technology and engineering for programming turns and tasks requiring sensor recognition of colored pieces.

  • Heroin making a comeback

    The Kentucky All Schedule Prescription Electronic Reporting System and legislation requiring pseudoephedrine to be sold behind the counter hinders the production of methamphetamine, but local law enforcement think as a result it is opening the door for heroin.

    Two cases involving the sale and use of heroin have made their way into Henry County Courts recently. Law enforcement officials at the city, county and state level say heroin is on the rise.

  • HCHS students get a dose of college

    High School seniors may find applying for college, financial aid or scholarships daunting, particularly if they are first generation college or secondary education students.

    The Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority selected Henry County High School as one of 13 pilot schools to participate and receive support with student activities to ease the process during Kentucky College Application Week.

  • New Castle purchases former Home Health building

    New Castle City Commission unanimously made a motion to buy 31 East Cross Main last week.

    The 2,400-sq.-foot building, previously the North Central Health Department office, will provide space New Castle Mayor Denny Benham thinks city hall needs.

    “It’s going to give us some room for one thing. We won’t have enough room to continue in a few years,” Benham said. “It will give public works office here (the present New Castle City Hall ) an office, and the Main Street manager can have his office back.”

  • Yacht explodes, injures Prospect woman

    A yacht returning to a Prospect marina exploded midday Thursday with four people on board.

    Heavy black smoke billowed above Ky. 1793 and U.S. 42 as flames quickly swept through a boat docked in the 2000 block of Justin Cove.

    Crews from North Oldham, Harrods Creek and Westport fire departments battled the blaze for more than an hour. As the flames were extinguished, the boat came to rest at the bottom of the marina.

    The vessel, a 41-foot Carver yacht, is partially submerged.

  • Mitchell brothers have record setting seasons

    Brandon Mitchell finished his high school football career as one of the biggest record holders in Warrior history. With two more records added to the five he had last year, Mitchell now holds seven EHS football records.

    Not to be outdone, Justin, his younger brother, set nine records this year. That’s 16 records between the brothers.

    That begs the question: Are the Mitchell brothers the most accomplished family members in team history? It would be hard to imagine any other siblings having more.

  • Thanksgiving was a sports Feast Week indeed

     

    Last week was Feast Week on the ESPN family of networks and I must say I overindulged to a greater extent than usual. If watching a smorgasbord of sports added calories to your diet like Thanksgiving dinner does, I would have gained about 20 pounds.
