  • Chamber seeks help for annual awards nominations

    It’s time for the annual Henry County Chamber of Commerce Awards. The dinner is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 29, at the Eminence Christian Church Fellowship Hall.

    The Chamber wants your nominations for the awards. Anyone can nominate for these, and the Chamber would like several nominations for each category.

  • Sulphur man indicted for role in fatal accident

    A Trimble County Grand Jury has indicted a Henry County man for his role in a fatal motorcycle collision in October.

    Patrick Moore, 27, of Sulphur was indicted for reckless homicide; and DUI 1st, aggravated. He also was indicted as a persistent felony offender.

  • County has new senator

    Henry and Carroll counties are no longer part of the state’s 26th Senate district. Those counties, which, historically, have been served by Republican Sen. Ernie Harris, now fall into the 20th District, represented by Sen. Paul Hornback, also a Republican.

    Statewide population growth, as documented by the 2010 U.S. census, means districts for both the state House of Representatives and Senate were redrawn, approved and signed into law by Gov. Steve Beshear last week. Lawmakers are still working to redraw the six districts for the U.S. House of Representatives.

  • 'We had one bite of our appetizer, and then the floor rumbled'

    Henry County native Joe Ryan, 23, is looking forward to a trip to Destin, Fla., with friends later this year, after he graduates from Eastern Kentucky University.

    It will be a landlocked location – “No captain needed for time on the beach,” he said during a phone interview Monday.

    Seems mundane, but Ryan is ready for mundane.

  • Cats fall to Paul Laurence Dunbar in S.T. Roach Classic

    The Henry County Wildcats traveled to Lexington Saturday night to take on the host team, Paul Laurence Dunbar, in the feature game of the S. T. Roach Classic, a four game hoops feast, featuring teams from around the state.

  • Warriors ride energy from HCHS game to beat Brown

    The energy of the Henry County game carried through to the next night for the Eminence boys basketball team.

    On Wednesday, they hosted Brown, and handily defeated the visitors 77-59.

    After jumping out to an early lead, head coach Chris Nethery tried a variety of line-ups, taking advantage of the easy game to find combinations that could work in other situations.

  • Warriors seeing their own improvement in win against Brown, loss to KCD

    A pair of games last week may have shown the Eminence girls’ basketball team how much they’ve improved since the start of the season.

    Two opponents — Kentucky Country Day and Brown — beat the Warriors earlier this season. Kentucky Country Day handed the Warriors a 29-point loss on Dec. 14 and Brown defeated them in a Christmas tournament by 22 points. Not history that’s fun to relive.

  • Cats hold off Warriors 60-55 to sweep series

    When the Wildcats and Warriors meet in a basketball game you can usually throw out records and rankings.
    Coming into last week’s county-rivalry game, the Wildcats boasted a better record overall and in the district. Some people might have looked at results against common opponents and believed this to be an easy one for the Cats. But the Warriors had other ideas.
