  • Warriors already match last year’s wins

    After playing one of its best games this season followed by one of its worse in a double header at Calvary Christian on Saturday, the Eminence softball team has now matched its total wins from last year and are an impressive 7-4 heading into this week.

    The Warriors were near-perfect in game one on Saturday, getting solid pitching from Brenna Raisor, defense from her teammates and hitting by everyone at the plate in a 11-1 win. But in a complete reversal after a 20-minute break between games, they took a 4-3 loss in game two.

  • Magness named sportsman

    There is more to Luke Magness than what you see on the football field — more than his powerful right arm that threw for a school-record 6,280 career passing yards at Henry County High School, or even his ability to use his mind to pick apart defenses.

    Magness was the top passer in Class 3A this season with 2,510 yards in the air. He was named the District Four Player of the Year his last two seasons of high school. He was selected and played in the Greater Louisville Football Coaches Association East-West All-Star Game. He was named All-State Honorable Mention.

    Larry Montgomery said Foree could not play football in college, that he hadn’t proved himself yet, but that he could prove him wrong. Mark Meadows went a different route, saying it was up to Foree if Foree could play in college, that it mattered what he had in his heart.

  • Devastating floods? What about earthquakes?

    In the wake of two devastating earthquakes – Japan’s in March and Haiti’s early last year – there has understandably been renewed interest in being better prepared if that type of disaster happens here.
    This coming winter will mark 200 years since a series of earthquakes along the New Madrid fault system literally shook the eastern half of the United States.  They caused the Mississippi River to run backward, and were felt as far away as New York City and Boston.
