    Residents in need have another option today for putting food on their tables.

    The Dare to Care Mobile Pantry will be at the Henry County Fairgrounds from 3 to 6 p.m. today, Dec. 16.

  • Wildcats continue progressing on the basketball court

    Still putting the pieces together, Henry County’s first-year head coach Derek Springate and his Wildcats dropped their record to 1-3 and started 31st District play at 0-1 with a 48-36 loss at Gallatin County on Friday night.

    Afterwards, Springate said it was the best his team had played up to that point — better than Henry’s 40-37 win over Trimble County in its season opener, the 67-43 loss to Model and the 61-34 loss to Walton-Verona.

  • Metcalfe finished with torn ACL

    Rachael Metcalfe’s sophomore basketball season at Eminence High School lasted just one minute, six seconds.

    The post player went to the floor holding her knee in the season opener against Henry County on Dec. 3, just 1:06 into the county matchup. She missed the rest of that game, had to sit out the next three and was recently told she cannot play the remainder of the season with a torn ACL. Eminence coach Carter Martin said Metcalfe will have surgery later this month.

  • Springate era starts with Trimble win

    Still under heavy construction, the Derek Springate era at Henry County High School officially started last Tuesday night with a 40-37 win over Trimble County.

    It continued with a 67-43 loss to Richmond Model on Thursday and a 61-34 loss to Walton-Verona on Saturday for a 1-2 start after the first week to an unpredictable season.

  • Jesus was no Liberal

    Last week someone wrote a Letter to the Editor entitled “Jesus is a Liberal.”  To say that Jesus was a liberal is to say that the Bible is a liberal publication.  This statement cannot be farther from the truth.  You can read in the Book of Judges that the Jewish people were self-governed.  They had no formal government.  Liberals constantly want larger government with more regulation and higher taxes as a result.  When we read 1 Samuel, we find the Israelites asking God for a king.  God explains to them that they are to be set apart from other

    The installation of a new 3.5-ton heating and air-conditioning unit at the Henry County Historical Society will do far more than keep visitors comfortable.

    Board of Directors member Donna Ludwig said maintaining a constant climate in the building is crucial to the integrity of historical papers.

    “We have all of Henry County’s historic records” she said. “Just a little moisture can ruin those documents.”

  • Helping Kentucky families save money on home heating costs

    Thankfully, the nation is not gripped in an energy crisis that drives up home heating costs this winter. Experts predict that Kentuckians can expect to pay about 39 percent less for natural gas than they paid last winter as natural gas prices drop to their lowest levels in six years. The cost of electric heat, heating oil and propane has also declined this year, meaning smaller bills and bigger savings for many households.

  • Ladycats vs. Lady Warriors

    For the 10th straight time, the Henry County girls’ basketball team defeated its cross-county rival Eminence. For the first time, it came in the season opener.
