  • 12 days of holiday tips

    Here are some tips to help over the holidays and if you want more information go online to the government websites listed.

    Celebrate on a budget

    The holidays can be expensive, but you don’t have to break the bank to celebrate. Taking a few minutes to plan your holiday spending can help you avoid taking on debt. Start by creating a holiday spending plan, keep track of what you spend, avoid impulse purchases, and leave the credit cards at home.  www.consumerfinance.gov/plan-your-spending-to-avoid-holiday-debt/

  • One acre at a time

    Nearly all Henry County landowners have some portion of their land in trees.  This wooded portion can be just a fraction of an acre here or there, or it may be a sizeable area consisting of dozens or even hundreds of acres.   In fact, Henry County is nearly 25 percent covered in woodlands, with uses covering the gamut from wasteland to recreation to well managed timber.

  • Count the benefits of buying local

    When shopping runs you ragged, and you think there is no end to the trips to the Big City,” stop and think about the fact that Henry County has many good businesses that may offer just what you need without the hassle. 

    While we all realize we need more businesses to offer the items you cannot purchase here, we should remember to help our current businesses stay in the community.

    Why shop Henry County? Let us count the ways…

  • County jobless rate drops below 8% for second month this year

    Unemployment rates fell in 99 Kentucky counties between October 2010 and October 2011, while 20 county rates increased and one county remained the same, according to the Kentucky Office of Employment and Training, an agency of the Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet.  
    Woodford County recorded the lowest jobless rate in the Commonwealth at 6.4 percent.

  • Hatfields are the real McCoy

    It is always exciting to have a new business come to Henry County.  Hatfield Media recently opened in New Castle, and they can do just about anything you might need to promote your business.

  • Foul trouble, mistakes cost Warriors 2 games

    Uncharacteristic turnovers and foul trouble plagued the Eminence Warriors in a rough, two-loss week.

    On Dec. 13, the Warriors hosted Berea in a game that was close to the end. But fouls sent Brandon Mitchell and Daishon Moore to the bench, and Berea to the charity stripe to seal the win.

    But the game started well for the Warriors, who dominated Berea early. “We were up 14-5 in the first quarter,” head coach Chris Nethery said.

  • Cats turn on the pressure against Panthers

    Austin Dunn coolly released the ball, with a Carroll County defender hot on his heels. Fired from behind the 3-point-line, the ball hit its target.

    The crowd, and Dunn, went nuts, screaming and roaring as the Wildcats clawed their way back from an early deficit.

    It was his third 3-point shot in a row, and part of a second-quarter surge that helped the Wildcats beat the Panthers 69-51 last week.

  • Warriors are learning on the fly

    One game at a time.

    After years of disappointing seasons, Bill Covington said earlier in the season, it’s litterally one game at a time for his Warriors.

    Nine games into their season, the Warriors matched the number of wins from the last two seasons.
    In a long week that featured two hard losses to Kentucky Country Day and Gallatin County — neither of which he was inclined to discuss — the Warriors picked up their second win on Saturday, a low-scoring, 30-25 grueling match against Portland Christian.
