  • Henry Baughman Tennis Complex opens

    Henry Baughman Sr. once built his family a tennis court on their farm in Stanford. Now, 60 years later, one was built in his son’s name.

    Lindsey Wilson College officially opened the Henry Baughman Tennis Complex with a ceremony on Oct. 8. The $425,000 project included expanding the courts from three to six, and adding lights, bleachers and a new playing surface.

    Baughman made the lead gift to help fund the huge upgrade, and with his legendary tennis career was given the naming rights of the complex.

  • Finals set for the Kentucky state playoffs

    After 20 grueling weeks of high school football in Kentucky, including 15 weeks of Friday night games, the finals of the state playoffs are set for this weekend.

  • Basketball has arrived

    When the Eminence High School football players were dropping like flies with all the late-season injuries, Eminence basketball coach Chris Nethery was clenching his teeth.

    Secretly, I was too.

    More than half of the football players finished the year injured, and with most of those players playing both sports, Nethery is left trying to put the pieces back together.

    It’s typical at a school the size of Eminence, but is worse this year. Nethery described the scene as the most injuries he has had to start a basketball season.

  • Three local athletes play in All-Star Classic

    Henry County Middle School eighth-grader Mason Fish was cleared to play from a shoulder blade injury he suffered in October, and was a late addition to the East roster of the Kentucky Middle School Football Association All-Star Classic on Sunday, giving Henry County three total players.

    Fish joined Eminence teammates Austin Jones and Justin Mitchell in the second annual all-star game for the best middle school footballers in Kentucky. This marked the first time HCMS had a representative, while Corey Roberts represented EMS in the inaugural game last year.

  • Coming soon: New look for hclocal.com

    If you visited our Website over the weekend, you may have noticed something different.

    It was a brief, unintentional unveiling of our new platform. As the platform wasn’t supposed to debut until Dec. 4, the old website was put back up almost as soon as we noticed the faux pas.

    There’s no denying that our soon-to-be old website left quite a bit to be desired. In fact, we were more than a little embarrassed by it. It was not the professional product we wanted to deliver to you.

  • Give thanks for 15 billion gallons

    We just celebrated the Thanksgiving season, and I’ve heard many folks talking about the good visits they had with family and friends.  Personally, that’s what I’m most thankful for.  Here in Henry County, we were thankful for the abundant rains which fell last Wednesday and Thursday.  More on that rain in a moment.

  • What we are willing to change for varies by person

    It’s pretty easy to gain 5-10 pounds from Thanksgiving through New Year’s. Big holiday meals, parties and open houses, and candies, cookies and rolls are more available at home, work and school. All promote weight gain, and pair that with less time for exercise... well, you see the problem.

  • CARE Team: Involved parents make a difference

    Underage drinking plagues our communities with property damage, an increase in crime, personal injury, and even death. The youth who engage in underage drinking generally do not set out to create mayhem. They believe drinking just means a good time. They don’t’ think about the future or fully understand the chance of negative consequences with their actions.
