  • Preventing teen suicide

    According to a report released by the Surgeon General two years ago a young person commits suicide every two hours in our country.  In fact suicide now claims the lives of more adolescents than any disease or natural cause.

    It should also be noted that adolescents commit suicide at a higher rate than that of any other age group.  What is even more alarming is there are even more suicidal attempts and gestures than there are actual completed suicides.

  • Cravens given OK to pursue lease

    It’s a siren call Henry County Sheriff Danny Cravens has sounded more than once: The sheriff’s department needs more space.

    During the November meeting of the Henry County Fiscal Court, Cravens was given permission to negotiate a potential lease of the Henry County Health Department building.

  • Committee drafts alcohol ordinance

    When the Henry County alcohol ordinance finally takes shape, it will mirror that of Oldham County.

    A committee composed of Henry County Judge-Executive John Logan Brent and Magistrates Jerry Beasley and Roger Hartlage hashed out the new ordinance, which is based on Oldham’s.

    The group changed few items from Oldham’s ordinance, namely the license and renewal fees, and the regulatory license fee. If approved, the ordinance sets Henry County’s license and renewal fees at $400, with the regulatory fee set at 6 percent of alcohol sales.

  • Smith wants to keep some animals

    Terri L. Smith made her first court appearance Monday, Jan. 9, since being arraigned on 218 counts of second-degree animal abuse stemming from the Dec. 12 puppy mill/animal hoarding bust at her home in rural Campbellsburg.

    Judge Diana Wheeler gave Henry County Attorney Virginia Harrod until Feb. 6 to respond to a request for discovery, filed by Smith’s attorney, George R. Carter, of Louisville, and scheduled the next pretrial hearing for Feb. 20.

  • General Assembly has a lot to consider

    Early this week, the General Assembly returned to the Capitol to begin another legislative session, which in even-numbered years lasts for 60 days and runs through mid-April.  

    Gov. Beshear will help set the stage when he gives his State of the Commonwealth address this week and, later this month, presents his two-year budget proposal. Redistricting, something done each decade to align the state’s legislative and Kentucky Supreme Court boundaries to changes in population, will also be a major issue in the session’s opening days.

  • Seniors lead Ladycats to 60-43 win against Iroquois

    In the First Citizens Bank Classic at North Bullitt High School, the Ladycats found their legs again.
    Henry County put up a 60-43 win over Iroquois High School in the first round.

    “Our offense was showing signs of doing better,” head coach Todd Gilley said. “We had a little more experience, and we were able to use that to score.”

    Ten players scored against Iroquois, with seniors Katie Setters and MacKenzie Clifford leading the way with 22 and 11 points, respectively.

  • Warriors’ Brees gets triple-double against Evangel

    30 points. 24 rebounds. 12 steals. One player.

    Triple doubles are more common at the professional basketball level, and every so often a college player will pick one up. But at the high school level, triple doubles are a rarity.

    But on Dec. 30, against Evangel Christian, Eminence’s Sherry Brees got one.

    She’s a player who, until this year, hadn’t spent much time on the hardwood.
