  • Cats' hoops season comes to an end

    There is an old adage in basketball that says it is hard to beat a team three times in one season when they are evenly matched.

    The Gallatin County Wildcats learned that lesson last week, facing the Henry County Wildcats for the third time, ending Henry County’s season in a nail-biter 60-58 win in the 31st District tournament.

    It was a tough loss for Henry’s four seniors: Austin Dunn, Jake Hartlage, Jared Payton and Austyn Sailings. The pain of the loss was written on their faces as they left the floor with their teammates.

  • Lady Cats’ season comes to an end

    On paper, it wasn’t really going to be a contest.

    Coming into the second round of the 31st District tournament, the Henry County Lady Cats couldn’t have been faulted for thinking they had a huge mountain to climb.

    Many saw the game as a formality for the highly ranked Owen County Lady Rebels.

    Based on records, rankings and previous matchups between the two teams, it seemed likely that a Lady Rebels rout was in the making.

  • 4 United Citizens Bank employees have 189 years of service

    In 2008, the average length of time a person was projected to spend at a single job was about four years. At United Citizens Bank in Campbellsburg, four employees have bounced that statistic.

    Jerry Brent, Sue Nelson, Mary Helen Simpson and Betty Tingle, all of Campbellsburg, each have more than 40 years with the bank, and together total 189 years of service.

  • Signs, signs everywhere illegal signs

    When he helps set up the monthly fiscal court meetings in the Henry County Courthouse, Planning and Zoning Administrator Jody Rucker sets out microphones to help amplify discussion at the table for the audience.

    Last week, he also set up roughly a dozen signs, ranging from real estate placards to an advertisement for a Trimble County winery. Some were in relatively good condition; some not so much.

  • Rick Nethery: the ‘next Van Hawkins’

    History has turned a page for one landmark of the tiny city of Port Royal.

    Hawkins Farm Center – a local institution since 1964 – is now Rick’s Farm Center and Restaurant. Rick and Lisa Nethery of Eminence bought the store from the Hawkins family last month.

  • Berry Center, college building legacy

    It’s not every day that a legacy is made.

    The words “legacy” and “historic” were used often at St. Catharine Hall on the campus of St. Catharine College on Monday.

    Trustees, college faculty, students and community members filled the room, as St. Catharine College President William D. Huston announced a partnership between The Berry Center and the college.
