  • In the beginning, there came debate

    “Bill Nye the Science Guy” and Ken Ham of the Creation Museum faced off this past week to debate creationism vs. evolution. I am so tired of this debate. It is not new. It was going on when I was a kid and when my parents were kids and when their parents were kids, and probably when Noah was a kid. Enough already! This love/hate relationship that many Christians have with science baffles me.

  • Naming fathers of political parties can be tricky

    By Joe Yates

    Gather ‘round, folks, it’s time for birthday trivia!

    Who said, “Labor is prior to and independent of capital…capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration,” ?

    Karl Marx, you say? Nope. Lenin? Wrong again. Try our birthday boy, Abraham Lincoln, in his first state of the union address.

  • Wildcats defeat Bears 59-53

    The Henry County Wildcats visited Spencer County Friday night and found themselves in a familiar position. After one quarter of play the Wildcats trailed the Bears 17-9.

    Just two nights earlier the Cats trailed by seven points to Bullitt Central before falling behind by as much as 21 points in the game. In that game the Cats made a furious rally to pull within three points, but it was too little too late and the Cats lost by seven.

  • Warriors get first home win

    It has been a long time coming but the Eminence Warriors girls’ basketball team finally got a home-court victory on Thursday night against the St. Francis Wyverns by a score of 31-27. The young Warriors only previous win was against Brown in the Beth Haven Holiday Classic.

    “They definitely needed a win to get them going,” Coach Zach Adair said. “Especially, the middle school girls who didn’t have a win. It was good for them to get a win on their home court.”

  • Warriors slay Wyverns

     

    The Eminence Warriors hosted the St. Francis Wyverns on Thursday night and came away with a 21-point win.

    The Warriors got out to a four-point lead at 17-13 in the first quarter and maintained it going into the locker room at halftime.

    “In the first half we missed a lot of layups,” Coach Chris Nethery said. “We should have been up by more.”

    The Warriors shot better in the second half and made some defensive adjustments that paid off as they pulled away from the Wyverns.

  • Lady Cats fall to Lady Wildcats

    The Henry County Lady Cats hosted the Gallatin County Lady Wildcats on Friday night just eight days after losing in Warsaw by 22 points. In that game the Lady Cats managed to stay close for a while before succumbing to Gallatin County’s pressure defense and deadly shooting. This time the Lady Cats showed improvement by hanging tough into the third period before a spate of turnovers allowed Gallatin to pull away for a tough, but comfortable, 56-41 win.
