  • Tough week for Ladycats; lose to Shelby, Gallatin

    It was a rough week for the Ladycats of Henry County. After falling 35-44 at home against Shelby County, Henry County fell hard at Gallatin, 27-76.

    Missed free throws were critical in the Shelby game, Henry County head coach Todd Gilley said.

    “We were 11 of 30 from the free throw line,” he said. “We got beat by 9. It didn’t take long to figure out that if we’d hit our free throws, we would’ve won.”

    Gilley said missing that many free throws is mental, and a symptom of frustration on the part of the players.

  • Cats hang on for narrow victory at EHS

    From the tip-off to the final free throw, last week’s rivalry game between Eminence and Henry County was intense.

    “It was a very high energy game,” Henry County head coach Enoch Welch said of his first taste of the in-county rivalry. “I thought both teams came out playing hard. And I thought (Eminence) came out with a little more intensity than us.”

    “I knew there was a rivalry and knew it would be intense. It lived up to the billing.

  • Warriors pick up first win, drop Lady Aces

    The Eminence Warriors picked up their first win with a 49-30 performance against Frederick Fraize Friday night.

    “I thought we gave a really good effort,” head coach Bill Covington said.

    But 16 missed foul shots in the first half alone, meant the Warriors didn’t win by as wide a margin as they could have.

    “We should’ve won by a much larger margin,” he said. “That’s something we’re going to concentrate on this week.”

  • Tips for spending wisely during the holidays

    With the holiday season upon us, it’s important to remember to reduce holiday stress and the post holiday bills by developing a budget for gift giving, food and entertainment expenses. 

  • Find ways to meet youth physical activity guidelines

    Children’s activity levels have dropped in recent decades through a number of factors, among them, cultural shifts in the way parents and supervisors address issues of child safety and supervision, differences in built and outdoor environments, to an increase in screen time. The days of neighborhood kids safely playing kick-the-can in bucolic suburbs have given way to supervised meetings and organized activity, increased school hours with less physical activity built into the day and greater use of electronic media.

  • Celebrating the 'gift of all time'

    “‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.”

    Clement Clarke Moore’s poem never ceases to move me.  It awakens memories of Christmases past and hopes for Christmas present.

    Christmas Eve in my childhood home was a grand time. Our decorated Christmas tree would have beneath it a scattering of wrapped presents, but my sister and I knew that come Christmas morning, those few presents would be dwarfed by the many that would be left by Santa Claus.

  • County Government Recap for 2011

    With the end of the year approaching, I thought it might be fitting to share a few of the county’s accomplishments for the year, as well as a few facts about county government you might not know.  

  • Points are right, approach was wrong

    It was clear from the beginning of last week’s Pleasureville City Commission meeting that there was tension.
    At one point, the “discussion” truly had the feel of a spat between sisters, more than a reasoned and rational commission meeting.
