  • Wildcats beat Collins to advance to semifinals

    The Henry County Wildcats continued their postseason run last Wednesday night, dominating Collins for much of the game in a 52-49 win to advance to the semifinals of the 8th Region tournament.

    The Wildcats won their first district championship since 1971 one week earlier, and then started regional play with a win in the first-ever meeting against newly-formed Collins. The visiting Titans ended their inaugural season with an 18-12 record and an early exit in the postseason, while the Wildcats improved to 17-14 and continued on to the next round.

  • Oh so close for Cats

    And just like that, it was over.

    The Wildcats led for all but 2:55 of the game. They were ahead by as much as 10 points. They were patient most of the night. They scratched. They clawed. This was a game the Cats wanted to win so badly.

    In what was shaping into a potentially historic run, it was a game nobody in Henry County wanted to miss. The crowds started to flood the doors just after 5 p.m., and by the 6:30 tip-off time it was jam-packed. And everyone got what they came for — a good game — even if it didn’t go in Henry’s favor.

  • Archery barely misses state

    Competing against the largest region in the Kentucky, the Eminence archery club finished fourth out of 29 teams at the Sixth Region tournament over the weekend, missing an automatic qualifying team spot into the state tournament by just one place.

  • EHS basketball moves to 31st

    The Warrior-Wildcat rivalry just got more heated.

    In what was the only change to the 8th Region for the 2011-12 basketball season, and one of only three changes in the whole state, Eminence has made the jump from the 30th to the 31st District.

    When Shelby County split into two high schools this year, the 30th District had five teams: Shelby, newly-formed Martha Layne Collins, Spencer County, Anderson County and Spencer. Meanwhile, the 31st District had four teams: Henry County, Gallatin County, Owen County and Carroll County.

  • Cut spending and avoid a shutdown

    Congress is currently working to come to an agreement on funding the government through the remainder of the fiscal year ending in September before the current stop-gap measure expires on March 18.  Just as urgent is the need to begin to cut out of control spending, reduce the deficit and address our national debt which will increase confidence in the economy, and make room for the private sector to grow and create jobs.


    Long after a legislative session is in the history books, it is often remembered by just one or two of its most prominent bills.  Early last week, the General Assembly gave its overwhelming approval to the one that will almost certainly top this year’s list.

  • The learning curve of forgiveness

    Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven.” (Matthew 18:21-23 ESV)

  • Know your risk for type 2 diabetes

    Anybody can develop diabetes, but some people are more at risk than others.  For example, if you have a family history of diabetes, you are at increased risk for developing the disease, especially if a close family member–mother, father, brother, or sister–has diabetes.
