  • Cats hold off Warriors 60-55 to sweep series

    When the Wildcats and Warriors meet in a basketball game you can usually throw out records and rankings.
    Coming into last week’s county-rivalry game, the Wildcats boasted a better record overall and in the district. Some people might have looked at results against common opponents and believed this to be an easy one for the Cats. But the Warriors had other ideas.

  • Ladycats target 3rd quarter nemesis

    After the Henry County Ladycats took a 37-33 overtime loss to North Oldham County last week, head coach Todd Gilley wondered if perhaps his team had a bit of a halftime problem.

    He even referred to the third quarter as the Ladycats’ nemesis. He even joked about not going to the locker room at halftime again.

    Senior Katie Setters helped Henry take a 12-5 lead in the first quarter, picking up half of the team’s points. But in the second, Henry County was outscored 10-7.

  • Study puts first-year value on casinos at $1.7 billion

    Allowing casinos at eight Kentucky racetracks would have an estimated $1.7 billion economic impact on the state during the casinos’ first full year of operation, according to a study released Monday by the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.

    That would include $464.7 million in gaming tax revenue, $164.6 million of which would go to racing-industry programs, according to the Kentucky Gaming Market Analysis and Impacts Report, which was paid for by racing-industry interests.

  • An Opportunity to Create Jobs: Will the President Act?

  • Relishing the pleasure of snow

    I am one happy camper this week; we have snow! I am one of those people who love the snow. Do I sound like an overgrown kid? That’s probably because I revert to being a child again when it snows.    

    The rest of the adult world may see snow as being problematic, but I see it through a child’s eyes, and I light up brighter than a Christmas tree when I see the white fluffy stuff falling from the sky.

    Nature’s white blanket has always delighted me. As a child, snow meant we might have a day off from school.

  • Hatfields take unconventional approach to life, business

    Three years ago, operating a home-based family business in the small town of New Castle probably wasn’t on Drake Hatfield’s radar.

    But then again, Hatfield’s life has been far from the usual.

    He grew up in Panama, where his parents worked as missionaries to “plant” churches. When he was 5 years old in 1989, the U.S. military invaded that country and captured its leader, Manuel Noriega. His parents told him he slept through the bombing.

  • Suicide is 10th leading cause of death

    This week alone, nationwide, statistics show that 100 young people ages 10-24 years old will take their own lives. It is the second leading cause of death among college age youth, the third leading cause of death among youth ages 18-24 and the fourth leading cause of death among children ages 10-14.

    But, because it is regarded as a taboo subject, suicide is also known as the “Silent Epidemic,” according to Jerry Lucas.
