  • Get your body ready for winter

    As the weather turns cooler and the leaves turn colorful, thoughts turn toward winterizing your home and car. But did you ever think about winterizing your body?

  • Wildcats thump Elizabethtown 57-27

    It was the performance they’d been waiting for.

    Leading into their game against Elizabethtown, the Henry County Wildcats had won just a single game.  There were glimmers of smart play, including good defensive stands against Central High School. In an emotional game against Bullitt Central, the Wildcats won with heart and determination.

    Against Elizabethtown, they put everything together and ran away, quite literally, with a 57-27 win over the visiting Panthers.

  • Warriors fall to Frankfort, 40-12

    The unbeaten Warriors met their match.

    “They were just better than us,” Eminence head coach Steve Frommeyer said.
    The Franklin High School Panthers came to town Friday, and were bigger — both in terms of numbers and sheer physical size — than the Warriors. And the Panthers handed Eminence its first loss, 40-12.

    Breaking their usual pattern of slow starts, Eminence got off to a quick one.

  • Sheriff, CARE team holding drug take-back on Saturday

  • Steady at the wheel

    When Roddy Nolin was 18, his dad, Russell, a long-time bus driver for Henry County Public Schools, taught him how to drive a bus – in their driveway.

    A year after graduation, he was hired as a substitute driver for his dad’s route. Eventually, he was asked to drive a route for a woman driver who was in the hospital.

    Weeks passed by, and when the other driver still hadn’t returned to her route, then-Henry County Public Schools Superintendent Roy Winchester told Nolin to “drive it until you hear something.”

  • Treasurer candidates promise more with less

    The three candidates for state treasurer this fall all deliver the same message on its face: in tough economic times, Kentucky’s government must do more with less.

    Incumbent Democrat Todd Hollenbach, looking to win his second term as treasurer, says by deploying a team of volunteers, he’s created new initiatives without cost to the taxpayer.

    Republican K.C. Crosbie argues Hollenbach hasn’t made wise decisions on how to reign in spending, and has neglected his duty as a check-and-balance on executive branch spending.
