  • Bartlett remains may be in Canada

    Two Kentucky war veterans may finally come home after 200 years.

    Canadian archeologists discovered two anomalies in Tecumseh Park in Chatham-Kent, Ontario, indicative of grave shafts.

  • FDs request deed fee increase

    Henry County fire departments operate on budgets based on the price of equipment from seven years ago.

    Fire department officials from each county station met with magistrates Saturday in an effort to strategize a way to increase deed feeds and maintain compliance with safety regulations.

    “I guess from my point of view we need more money,” said Scott Bates, magistrate for District 1. “I honestly don’t know how we can sell a tax increase during these tough times. Everyone is scraping by.”

  • Airbag deploys in parked van

    Tommy Lanham, minister at New Castle Christian Church, had just parked the family’s 2003 Dodge Caravan in his driveway before he heard what he thought was an explosion.

    “I don’t think I had even one foot down on the driveway,” Lanham said. “I was in the process of getting out of the van and had my back to the passenger side when I heard the explosion. I actually looked to the front of the van to see what happened. Then I noticed the air bag on the passenger side had gone off.”

  • Wildcats slip past Centurions

    Against one of the best teams they’ve faced this season, the Henry County Wildcats put together a complete game, and came away with a 4-point win.

    The Christian Academy of Louisville Centurions were coming off of a 4-point loss to St. Xavier, the 14th ranked team in the first Litkenhous rankings of the season.

    Strong inside play from towers Austin Young and Derek Jeffries, along with strong floor games from the Cats’ guards, allowed the team to take control in the third quarter, and hold off the Centurions.

  • Role Reversal

    In front of their largest non-tournament crowd, the Henry County Wildcats clawed their way out of a huge first-quarter hole to eke out a win over the Eminence Warriors

    It was a role-reversal from the teams’ previous meeting at Eminence, when the Warriors climbed out of their own first-quarter deficit to take the win on a last-second shot.

    This time, after falling behind 22-8 in the first quarter, the Wildcats fought their way back, and took a 5-point win on Jan. 8.

    Despite a lackluster performance, the Eminence Warriors took on the Covington Latin Trojans Saturday and pulled away for a 12-point win.

    The Warriors got out to a 14-11 lead in the first quarter with 5 points from Jalen Dixie and contributions from four other players.

    The Warriors had trouble finding their shooting form in the second period but stretched the lead to 7 points going into halftime outscoring the Trojans 13-9. Dixie had 5 more points and was in double-digits by the break.
