  • Henry County Sharp Shooters 11th at national

    The Henry County Sharp Shooters improved this year at the National Rifle Association’s International Youth Hunter Education Challenge, but the problem was every other team improved, too, in a competition between the best squads in the country.

  • Country Club hosts US Kids World Championships Qulifier

    The rain tried to put a damper on the US Kids World Championships Qualifier held at the Henry County Country Club last Wednesday, but after a three-hour rain delay the 32-person field finally teed off.

    It was the first time the golf course located just north of New Castle landed a Worlds Qualifier event, which attracted golfers aged 5-14 from all across the country. Among the mix were three from Henry County: MacKenzie Peyton, age 12, Isaac Klempner, 7, and Will Peyton, 6.

  • Henry tees off golf season at Long Run Park

    It wasn’t the long ball they were looking for, but the Henry County Ladycats teed off their golf season last Monday night with a so-so performance at Long Run Park.

  • Frazier’s Ballpark

    Jadie Frazier was one of the best athletes to ever come through Henry County. He averaged 32 points per game as a senior at Henry Central High School in 1959; he was a starter and double-digit scorer for the University of Louisville; he competed for the U of L track team; he was a star pitcher in fastpitch softball up until the age of 50; and he was inducted into the Louisville ASA Hall of Fame.

  • Jadie Frazier, one of the great athletes from Henry

    He might not be able to move as fast as he once could — when he had the athletic flair to jump up, spin around and put the ball in the rim in one graceful motion — but his eyes still light up when he remembers his playing days. And when speaking about his family or Frazier’s Field located close to Bardstown Road in Louisville, his eyes light up even more.

  • Elston murder trial is underway

    The following facts are not in dispute in the trial of Robert Steven Elston.

    On July 6, 2008 Elston pulled the trigger of a .44-caliber magnum discharging one bullet into the chest of Joseph D. Burch, 31, killing the younger man almost instantaneously.

    Elston, whose defense team will argue he fired in self-defense, was charged with second-degree murder.

    As he sat in court during the trial, he appeared calm and lucid, smiling at family members as he was seated and to whom he clearly wanted to speak.

  • Bravo to Eminence Independent Schools

    Congratulations to the Eminence Independent Schools for hiring Bill Covington and giving him a second chance! We in Eminence are so fortunate to have a fine school and dedicated school board. Our chairman has served many years, surely does not give up easily. I would certainly hope every man should have respect and deserves a second chance in life.

    Now, my question, should this subject be the lead article in the county weekly newspaper?

    Carolyn Giltner,

    Eminence

     

  • Disappointed by headline

    I have to say, I’m disappointed in this headline and its negativity.  As a member of the community, president of the local bank, athletic booster, volunteer coach and parent, Bill Covington made numerous contributions to Eminence Independent Schools, the City of Eminence and Henry County. I think it speaks volumes for his character that he wants to come back to Eminence and make additional contributions to the school, the students and the future of our community, all the while knowing that there will be some people who just can’t move on.

  • HC graduate lands role as Scratch

    While in the school library studying for finals at the University of Kentucky last spring, Reece Brammell and a friend noticed an advertisement that popped up on Facebook for mascot additions. Just a click later, Brammell was on his way to becoming the new Scratch at UK.

  • Henry County lost one of its greats

    John Allgeier: A family man, a community man and a great person. While a magistrate, he was an active member of the Kentucky Magistrates and Commissioners Association and made many contributions to it. He believed in the purpose of the association and was always willing to help it along.
