    Vet Tech in Oldham County

     

    Where did your interest in helping animals come from?

    I have always been into animals. I was like that as a kid. I did a lot of rescues. I am a vet tech in Oldham County and before that I would help with spay and neuter clinics. Now that I have a medical background, I get paid for things that I normally wouldn’t have.

  • Late TD propels Rockets past Wildcats

    In the opening game of their season, the Henry County Wildcats were poised for a victory over neighboring Shelby County.
    But a furious comeback with 22 seconds left in the game foiled the Cats, and the Rockets left the field with a 27-20 win.
    The final drive for the winning play came with the game knotted at 20 with 3:23 left to play. The Rockets had come back from a 20-7 halftime deficit and had momentum on their side. Their final drive appeared to stall when they faced fourth-and-4 with 1:37 remaining.

    Eminence High School students didn’t know what school had in store for them last Wednesday, an early release day.

    Motorists traveling through Eminence may have seen students from the sophomore, junior and senior classes weed the flower bed across from Dairy Queen, holding signs in front of Eminence City Hall or even washing windows on Penn Avenue.

     Eminence Middle and High School Principal Shannon Treece said the staff gave the students a ‘Change the day Challenge.’

  • ACT data skewed

    Changes in the 2013 ACT score reports make comparisons in trend data for county schools moot.

    The ACT entrance exam included two different variables in its score reporting this year: students who received time extended accommodations and whose scores previously didn’t count; and ACT changed its benchmark scores, which are considered predictors of the ability of a student to make a B or C in related college courses.
