    They sat quietly while an 18th century Cherokee chief told them his story.

    Eastern Elementary students sat “Indian style” on the auditorium floor last Thursday to learn the story of Atta kul kulla, the peace chief of the Cherokee nation in the 18th century United States.

    The assembly was sponsored by the Kentucky Humanities Council’s program, Telling Kentucky’s Story, and presented as a Chautaqua, a historical recreation.

    The Henry County boys’ golf team capped off their regular season with a Walton-Verona victory last Wednesday and was given a forfeit win over Seneca on Thursday before turning its attention to the Sixth Region Tournament.

    It was the end to what coach Steve Dent said was an impressive regular season. Heading into the regional tourney, he said the Wildcats were on pace to have one of their best outings ever. Region was held at Seneca Golf Course in Louisville all day Tuesday.

  • Agritourism has become big business for Kentucky

    One of the most positive gains farming has made over the last decade has been its partnership with another of our signature industries: tourism.

    To get a better understanding of just how much agritourism has grown during that time, consider that it accounted for about $1 million in income in 2001, but $3.2 million by 2007.

    September in Kentucky is Agritourism Month, which is appropriate since the fall festival season is the most popular time of year for farms that open their doors to the public.

    Were it not for a projected influx of almost $800,000 in federal money to the Commonwealth, the Henry County Public School system might have had some difficult choices to make.

    In presenting the 2009/2010 working budget to the HCPS Board of Education Monday, Superintendent Tim Abrams said the district’s general fund revenue is projected to fall by $451,069. That decline is due to a loss in local and state revenue.
