  • It’s chili time

    The Henry County Relay for Life committee wants to know... who’s got the best chili?

    You get to have a say in answering that question Sunday afternoon at the Relay for Life kickoff meeting. The kickoff is set for 4 p.m. at the Henry County 4-H building at the fairgrounds.

    Henry County Relay committee chairperson Tawnja Morris said that 12 teams have signed up to compete in the cookoff.

    The cookoff was simply an idea that could spark a little competitive spirit between the Relay teams, rather than coming to a speaker-focused meeting.

  • Coach: Forget this game ever happened

    Going into their game against Gallatin County, the Eminence girls basketball team knew it would be a rough ride.

    The Lady Eagles indeed gave the Warriors a difficult game, handing the Warriors a 79-19 loss on their home court.

    It was rough enough that Eminence co-head coach Bill Covington had little to say about it.

    “I told the girls forget that game even happened,” he said Monday. “We’re not even going to talk about it. It’s over, and we’re going forward.”

  • Ladycats fall to Carroll, Owen

    Now past the Christmas break, the Henry County Ladycats opened the new year in district play. But district play was not kind for the Ladycats, who dropped both games last week.

    On Friday, Jan. 6, the Ladycats lost 45-22 in a game that started slowly with neither team able to put many points on the board.

  • Turnovers, foul trouble cost Cats the win against Owen

    The Henry County Wildcats opened the second half of the season with a pair of important district seeding games last week.

    The Wildcats went into the holiday tournaments 2-2 against district opponents. They needed to get victories in both games last week to have a chance at the top seed.

    Unfortunately for the Cats, they were only able to get one victory — the Cats defeated Carroll County  64-57 on Jan. 3.

    On Friday, Jan. 6, the Wildcats hosted Owen County and came up short against a very solid Rebels squad.

  • Warriors must ‘play through’ fatigue

    Three Christmas-break tournaments took their toll on a relatively young Eminence boys basketball team, who have lost three of their last four games.

    But the potential fatigue from the tournaments, head coach Chris Nethery said, is no excuse for the losses.

    “We’ve got to play through that,” he said. “That was why we set the schedule up like that.”
    Thursday night, The Warriors fell to perennial rival Evangel Christian, 54-43, in a game that had, as Nethery said “ a totally different feel to it.”

  • The Bible: Breath of life or smothering weight?

    After all these years, the Bible remains a best-selling book.  For many, it is a source of life and inspiration.  For some, it is a window through which the revelation of God shines. For others, it can be a smothering weight.

    I can’t remember a time when I did not read the Bible.  I still have my first Bible, which I received as a Christmas present when I was 5 years old. My name is written on the presentation page, in pencil, in my father’s handwriting.  It is the only example I have of his handwriting.  I cherish that Bible.  

  • Understanding 'Couponese' – the language of couponing

    If you’ve ever overheard couponers conversing about their deals, it’s likely to have gone something like this:
    “So, I went to WM, Pm’d BL’s ad on the games, used two IP’s on them, used two IP’s on the razors which was a MM, used an IP on the wipes and the butter, used Cats from Wags and Kroger on the tweezers and floss, more MM’s and got it all for $2.85.”

  • Sewing teaches practical skills

    Sewing is a skill that complements the total development of the individual. It teaches concrete, measurable skills and provides an incremental learning curve, in which each success allows for the next project to be attempted. The new sewing project year will begin meeting two days a week. 

    The first year participants will meet on Mondays from 3:30-5 p.m. at the Henry County Extension office on Jan. 23. Those that have sewn in the past will begin on Thursdays starting Jan. 19.
