  • Food and prescription assistance

    For all Henry County residents there are two new opportunities for assistance that you may be interested in.  First, on the last Wednesday of each month the Dare to Care Mobile Food Pantry will be at the Henry County Fairgrounds from 3 to 6 p.m. The Henry County and Eminence Schools Family Resource Centers have taken the lead on this new program and are doing an excellent job with it. The mobile pantry came to Henry County for the first time last month. It served an estimated 250 people, providing them with a box of food which included meat and potatoes.

  • Looking back...

    Fans worldwide continued to be glued to their seats during 2009, watching all the sporting stories unfold. The Pittsburgh Steelers won the Super Bowl. North Carolina won the men’s NCAA men’s basketball tournament. The Los Angeles Lakers were the NBA champs once again. The New York Yankees bought yet another World Series. Lance Armstrong made his return to the Tour de France. Usain Bolt sprinted his way into the history books. And, for the first time, Tiger Woods got more attention for what he did off the golf course.

    JANUARY

    Replacement of the historic truss bridge connecting Henry and Owen counties at Gratz began. The bridge was one of 429 bridges in the United States built in 1931. Heavy truck traffic from Liter’s Quarry made its replacement a priority. The project is slated for completion in 2010.

  • Energy, economy, education studies received by General Assembly

    At the end of the year, and with an eye on the beginning of another legislative session, the General Assembly often receives studies from a handful of special committees formed to study a single issue.

    2009 was no different, with at least five providing their findings in recent weeks.  Energy was the driving force behind two, while education and the economy were the focus of the other three.

  • Lack of urinals isn’t the real travesty

    With all due respect to Campbellsburg City Council member Rex Morgan, the lack of urinals at the Campbellsburg Fire Department is, in itself, far from a travesty.

    The travesty is that months after reconstruction of the station began, problems still are cropping up. If the bidding process was any indication, this shouldn’t be a surprise.

  • Another wave of holiday tourneys

    A second set of high school basketball holiday tournaments are being played this week with three county schools participating.

  • Cats runners-up in Toyota Holiday Classic

    Even with a new coach and inexperienced players, the expectations are high for the Henry County High School boys’ basketball team. And that’s just the way coach Derek Springate wants to keep it.

    The Wildcats finished second place in the Forcht Bank/Dry Ridge Toyota Holiday Classic hosted by Grant County last week, but Springate was not satisfied after his team went 2-2 during the five-day stretch. The Cats beat Ludlow (70-51) last Saturday and Grant County (56-42) on Monday, and then lost to Williamstown (38-37) on Tuesday and South Oldham (46-33) on Wednesday.

  • Sluggish starts equal two more EHS losses

    The Eminence Warriors followed two near-identical storylines last week, starting out sluggish against Evangel Christian and Heritage Academy before regrouping when the basketball games were out of reach.

    Playing in the Portland Christian Holiday Classic, the EHS boys’ team lost to Evangel last Monday, 88-57, then lost to Heritage on Tuesday, 77-52, to drop its record to 1-7. The Warriors were trailing 27-3 during the opening quarter of the first game and 20-8 in the second.
