  • Wildcats go claw-to-claw with Bellevue

    All it took was one play. Just one.

    And it was a play that some coaches in the same position might not make. Go for the safe choice, and a point-after-touchdown, or go for the win on a two-point conversion?

    With the Henry County Wildcats up by one perilous point against Bellevue after a Tigers’ touchdown, Bellevue went all or nothing.

    They went for two — and got it.

    “They made one more play than we did,” Henry County Head Coach Jason Spencer said. “They went for two and converted.”

  • For small churches, upkeep is costly

    When times are tight economically, most families will do what they can to cut spending so they can afford the necessities.

    Jeff Bramel, pastor of Pleasureville United Methodist Church, said sometimes hard times will force families to stop tithing, making a bad economy even worse for smaller churches like his.

  • Bank warns residents of phone scam

    A new phone scam has worked its way into Henry County, and its after your debit card number.

    Carroll Yates, President of Farmer’s Deposit Bank in Eminence, said his bank received one call Monday during business hours, and then several more after business hours about an automated call some customers — and non-customers — received.

    The source number for the automated call has varied, with one customer reporting that the caller ID showed their own phone number calling. Another reported a phone number out of Bedford, Texas.

  • Henry bounces back from S. Oldham loss to beat Shelby

    A one-win, one-loss week might make some coaches grit their teeth. Not Shannon Snider.

    The Henry County Girl’s Soccer team head coach found the silver lining in the team’s 0-10 loss to South Oldham on Aug. 29.

    “We played really, really hard the whole game, which, a few years ago, wasn’t necessarily happening with that type of team,” he said. “We put out a good effort the whole 80 minutes.”

  • Henry falls to Woodford, now 0-3

    It happened almost in slow motion.

    Moments after Woodford County ran in its first touchdown, freshman Mason Fish was in the backfield, waiting to receive the ensuing kickoff.

    Fish churned toward the Henry County 35-yard line, on what appeared to be a solid run. Then, with a Yellowjacket wrapped around his waist, it happened... the ball popped out, stripped by the enemy. This, after a week of practices that no doubt focused on protecting the football at all costs.

  • Ladycats fight for win against Williamstown

    After the first game of their match against Williamstown, it would have been easy for the Henry County High School volleyball team to give up.

    They fell hard in the first game of the match, 13-25. But volleyball matches are fought in a best of three format, and the Ladycats saved their best for the second and third games.

    Henry County jumped out to an early, and commanding, 9-2 lead in the second game, and they never looked back.
