  • XC teams race at DeSales

    Led by Cassey Fischer’s sixth-place finish, both Henry County and Eminence cross-country teams competed at the DeSales Invitational at McNeely Lake Park in Louisville on Saturday.

    Henry and Eminence will have runners compete at the Meet of Champions this Saturday — the elementary and middle school races are considered the official Kentucky championships for those age groups — and the regional races will be held the following Saturday at various sites across the state.

  • Cats drop district opener

    In what was the District Four opener for Henry County’s football team, the Wildcats lost to visiting North Oldham on Friday night, 24-9.

    Playing against former coach Billy Martin, the Wildcats finished with three interceptions, two fumbles and gave the ball to North on downs at the tail end of another drive in a game the Cats could never get going.

  • Thanks for help with Fall Fling

    I would like to thank everyone who recently came out to the 11th Annual New Castle Fall Fling on Saturday, Oct. 2.  It was a tremendous success.

    I would like to thank everyone who brought their cars, trucks, and tractors to our car show.  It was enjoyed by everyone.  I want to thank the many vendors who came and set up all around the Courthouse. Thank you’s also go out to our entertainment of LA Entertainment, Six Miles South, and TumbleTime.

  • Trick or treat!

    Residents throughout the county will open their doors to boys and ghouls for trick or treat this weekend.

    Official trick-or-treat in all Henry County cities will take place from 6 to 8 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 30.

    At the same time, Pleasureville Baptist Church will host its annual Trunk-or-Treat event in the church parking lot from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Besides treats, there will be hot dogs and drinks and entertainment for the little ones.

  • The whole community needs to be served by the health department

    October is National Breast Awareness Month. Now is the time for flu immunizations. Has there been anything published to educate the community regarding both events? Seems our tax dollars should be utilized by the local health departments for just this purpose.

  • Excercise your right, do your duty

    Alright, Henry County, it’s time. Tuesday morning at 6 a.m., the doors open for you to exercise your right to vote.

    It’s a right we have that many in this world do not. Too few of us exercise it. Residents in some countries risk life and limb to cast their first votes.

    It’s right we are so often told, albeit via political rhetoric, that men and women in uniform died to protect. A right they’ve died to give to others.

  • Fire destroys storage building

    The scent of the fire carried all the way to the north side of Eminence, even after the flames had been dampened.

    At 6:41 a.m., Wednesday Oct. 27, Eminence Fire Department responded to a fire at Eminence Tire on South Main Street.

    Eminence Fire Chief Gary Lucas said the first fire truck rolled up to the scene within two or three minutes and the entire back end of the building was engulfed.

  • Let’s talk about child abuse

    At this busy time of year with elections, the holidays, etc. there is something I want to talk about.  Child abuse — harsh words, ugly words.  Words I don’t want to think about.
