  • Think twice before using instant tax refund

    Instead of waiting for tax refunds from the Internal Revenue Service, nearly 10 million consumers, many from low- to moderate-income families, borrow against part or all of their expected tax refunds. These refund loans are heavily marketed by paid tax preparers and immediately put cash into the consumer’s hands, making it seem to be a quick and “painless” way to get cash.

    The quick cash comes at a price, however.

  • Warriors get much-needed win

    For much of the 2011-2012 season, the Eminence Warriors have substituted out of necessity.

    But last week against the Kentucky School for the Deaf, they substituted because they could, as they cruised to a 53-5 victory.

    “We only played our starters for about 12 minutes of the game,” head coach Bill Covington said. “It was a good chance for our younger players, who were able to get in the game and play.”

  • CAL hot-shots too much for Cats

    Just on the edge of becoming a really good team, the Henry County Wildcats fell Friday night to a hot-shooting Christian Academy of Louisville.

    It was another tough contest for the Cats as they ran into a team seasoned by games against some of the top teams in the state. Cal have played two of the state’s top ranked teams in recent weeks, hanging tough against both No. 1 ranked Trinity and Louisville Eastern.

  • Lady Cats grind out wins at Spencer, KCD

    Sometimes basketball teams win games with sharp shooting, fast-break layups and great passing. Other times they just have to grind out results when they are at less than their best.

    The Henry County Lady Cats’ weekend victories over Spencer County on Friday night and Kentucky Country Day on Saturday would go in the latter category.

    After a slow start the Lady Cats pulled away late to defeat the Lady Bears by a score of 32-25. On Saturday in a physical defensive battle, the Lady Cats hung in to get the 33-30 win against KCD.

  • Warriors fall to Owen, Carroll

    When the Eminence Warriors first squared off against Owen County on Jan. 24, it was a rough 82-36 win for the Rebels.

    Eminence knew what it needed to do against the streaky-fast, hot-shooting team.

    “Our game plan was to hold the ball,” Eminence head coach Chris Nethery said. “If they didn’t have it, they couldn’t score.”
