  • Economic Development Council considers Work Ready status

     When the Henry County Economic Development Council formed, one thing was certain — its members needed to set goals, create a road map for the future.

    Some of those goals were identified when the group created its work plan: creating a regional economic development group; hiring an economic development director; improving the county’s website; and becoming a Work Ready Community.

    Michael Gritton, director of the Kentuckiana Works, an agency that helps counties apply for Work Ready Community status.

  • Kentuckiana Works: 100 moving jobs are waiting

     Despite an economy that appears to be teetering on the edge of another recession, there are jobs available for the taking. And there are plenty of them according to Michael Gritton with Kentuckiana Works.

    Gritton told a meeting of the Henry County Economic Development Board recently that he has 100-200 jobs making at least $40,000… but he has no takers.

    Nursing and other healthcare fields, as well as information technology job training is available, but Gritton said that moving companies find themselves in need of trained workers.

  • Lady Cats' season comes to an end

    The Henry County Lady Cats were facing long odds when they met up with the Lady Wildcats of Gallatin County in the 31st district tournament semifinals Friday.

    Gallatin County came in as one of the winningest teams in the 8th Region. The Lady Cats came in without leading scorer Cheyenne Clark and with two one-sided losses to Gallatin on the season.

    But the Lady Cats came in with the hope for a David and Goliath-like upset.

  • Warriors stand tall despite size

     

     

    Eminence High School was the third smallest public school participating in regional tournaments around the state this week.

    Only Augusta (105 students) and Fulton City (108) beat Eminence’s 150 for the title of smallest school still taking on the big boys of high school basketball.

  • Rebels stop Warriors

    The Eminence Warriors found themselves putting on another rally against the Owen County Rebels Saturday night.

    But the rally fell short, as the Rebels took the district tournament crown, winning 58-50.

    The Warriors were behind by as much as 13 points early in the fourth quarter, but cut the margin to 5 points with 1:28 left in the game.

    With 53.3 seconds to go, Owen county missed two free throws that would have extended the lead back to 7 points. The Warriors rebounded the miss with a chance to cut even further into the lead.

  • Dixie floater lifts Warriors past Gallatin

    With just a few seconds to go in the Warriors’ game against Gallatin County, Jalen Dixie drove left from the top of the key.

    With Gallatin defenders converging on him, he put up an off-balance floater that kissed off the glass and into the net, giving Eminence a tenuous 52-51 lead — with 7 seconds left in the game.

    Gallatin couldn’t capitalize on their next play — an open 3-pointer from the baseline — and time expired. For the first time since 1999, the Eminence Warriors were heading to the 8th Region tournament.
