  • Henry girls beat first-year team Carroll County, 2-1

    Opening its third season with a 2-1 win over Carroll County last Wednesday night, the Henry County girls’ soccer team earned its fourth win since the team transitioned from junior varsity to varsity in 2008 and its first victory in almost two years.

    Victoria Paynter scored the first goal in the first half, Katie Setters added the go-ahead goal in the second half, and Henry held off Carroll for the slim win. This marked Henry’s third season opener, while it was the first for Carroll, who decided to start the soccer program this fall.

  • Matt Ricketts leads Henry County boys on golf course

    Matt Ricketts led Henry County at both golf matches last week, finishing with a 42 for nine holes against Whitefield Academy on Tuesday and an impressive 37 against Carroll County on Thursday. Both matches were at the Henry County Country Club.

    The Wildcats finished with a four-person combined team score of 185 against Whitefield, losing by 15 strokes, and came back two days later to beat Carroll 176-191. The nine-stroke improvement shows that Henry is right where it needs to be in these early-season matches.

  • Kentucky played no small part in women’s history

    Our country celebrated a major milestone: the 90th anniversary of the day when women were granted the right to vote.

    In the push for equality, Kentucky has been a pioneer in many ways.  We became the first state to grant voting rights of any kind to women when, in 1838, those who were single and owned property began voting on matters involving schools.

  • Coach Kasten says team not where it needs to be yet through week 2

    It has been an up-and-down start for the Henry County volleyball team through the first two weeks of the season, but coach Jon Kasten said his Ladycats are improving and have plenty of time to get better before the 28th District tournament — the focal point to a questionable season.

    The Ladycats opened 2010 with a 2-0 loss to newly-formed Martha Layne Collins High School on Aug. 10, then beat Western Hills (2-0) last Monday and Anderson County (2-0) on Tuesday, and lost to Trimble County (2-0) on Thursday for a 2-2 start after week two. 

  • CVFD should not have to pay $52k

    The latest kurfuffle in Campbellsburg centers around a seemingly simple, though rediculous concept — whether or not the city;s fire department should pay the city $52,000.

    Last week, the Campbellsburg City Attorney Graham Whatley said he had been asked by Mayor Jan Fletcher to draft a legal opinion regarding the city’s relationship with its fire department.

    As a result, Whatley cranked out a 20-page, rambling opinion — that could well have been condensed to less than 5 pages — that levels some hefty allegations.

    Renovations continue at Eminence Elementary School even as a prolonged heat wave bears down on the area.

    To a person, those who worked with John W. Smith Jr., have the same conclusion: every decision he made was based on what was best for the children he served.

    “I have seen thousands of school board members through the years,” Brad Hughes said. “They all say it’s for the kids, but I’ve never known anyone more singularly focused on every single decision because it’s what would best help the most children.”

  • What a great year for Hussey’s Relay team

    Starting this school year, the Redskins will forgo their partnership with the HCYFL in order to become school affiliated.
