  • Coach Hunsaker says Cats are losing focus

    Austin Hunsaker said his Henry County Wildcats have recently lost focus on the baseball field, resulting in two losses in their only games last week.

    Mental mistakes, Hunsaker said, have been an issue lately. After winning four of five games, the Wildcats lost to Owen County last Monday night, 9-8, then to Christian Academy-Louisville on Thursday, 9-2. They entered this week at 6-8 overall record.

    A majority of the games during the last two-week stretch have been canceled or delayed due to the weather, and since that time the Wildcats have back pedaled.

  • Rain: go away!

    The site on Henry County’s track Saturday morning was not what it was planned to be when the April 23 date was set for the Wildcat Relays months ago.

    I had it highlighted on my calendar, and was looking forward to what was going to be the largest track meet in the county.

    There were supposed to be team tents set up around the track. There were supposed to be athletes running laps, jumping, throwing, passing batons. The stadium was supposed to be full of yelling spectators. The starters’ gun was going to be emptied of all its blank bullets.

    The topsoil shift at Lake Jericho dam is a ‘surface slide only,’ according to a state official.

    The ruling from the Kentucky Division of Water’s Marilyn Thomas meant the evacuation order for Sulphur was lifted, and residents could return to their homes.

    The tiny town of Sulphur has a long history of flooding. And because of that history, and the steadily falling rain for the last week, Henry County Emergency Management Director Bruce Owens has had his eye on Sulphur since Saturday.

  • Doll makes his decision, headed to Campbellsville

    After debating if he wanted to play football at the next level, Henry County High School senior Dylan Doll decided that the answer was yes.

    Doll said he had always wanted to play football in college, but after his junior season had doubts if he wanted to play a sport or just focus on school. He finally made that decision just a few months ago and it was made official with a signing last Tuesday inside the high school’s Media Room.
