  • Logsdon qualifies for state meet

    The Henry County cross country team traveled to Louisville Saturday to compete in the Region 3 Class 2A meet at Champions Park. Sophomore Josh Logsdon came through with a personal best time to qualify for the state meet.

    Coach Ricky Drawbaugh had prepared the runners for a flat course and let them know what it would take to get to regional. “I told the boys it would probably take 18 flat to qualify for state and Sydney would need 22:30.”

  • Warriors finish strong

    The Eminence Warriors football team traveled to Cincinnati on Saturday afternoon to take on the Oyler Hatmakers and ran into a team facing similar circumstances.

    The Hatmakers were caught short-handed by a rash of injuries as the Warriors welcomed back their top running back Shelby Armstrong who had missed the last game and a half with a knee injury.

    The Warriors scored early and often as they racked up 30 first quarter points and then watched as their young teammates got some valuable varsity experience.

  • Wildcats fall to Spencer County in Regular Season Finale

    The Henry County Wildcats traveled to Taylorsville on Friday night to take on the Spencer County Bears who were honoring their seniors in the regular season finale for both teams and lost 19-0.

    The Wildcats found consistency on offense to be a problem. “We just couldn’t sustain any drives,” coach Jason Spencer said. “We haven’t had our full offensive backfield together much this year that makes it hard to get any consistency. With (quarterback) Brennen (Peniston) getting hurt in practice Tuesday it happened to us again.”

  • EIS requests tax bills sent out

    Disregarding a judge’s admonition, Eminence Independent Schools last week requested that its 2013/2014 tax bills be issued and sent to the district’s residents.

    During a Thursday morning hearing in La Grange, Circuit Court Judge Karen Conrad urged the district to hold off on issuing tax bills until she could rule on the merits of a lawsuit filed against the district.

    Should Conrad rule against the district, the district would have to issue refunds, representing an additional cost on top of the reissued tax bills to the district, and its taxpayers.

  • New Castle 4th graders talk weather

    When Becca Gilbert started teaching her fourth graders about weather, the students probably didn’t expect their teacher would get a chief meteorologist to answer the questions she couldn’t.

    Gilbert taught weather topics like air pressure, predicting weather and reading weather maps but wanted to give the class a more dynamic experience.

    “The kids have been interested in more than (teachers) had knowledge of,” Gilbert said, “I decided who better to ask than a meteorologist.”

  • Fairness ordinance dies

    A proposed fairness ordinance in Pleasureville is dead in the water.

    After Shawn Mertz motioned to approve the ordinance, his fellow commissioners stared at the table. They stared at their hands. They said nothing.

    And Mertz’s motion, and thus the proposed fairness ordinance, died for lack of a second.
