  • Fighting the weather

    General Manager

    The toughest opponent the Henry County baseball team has faced this year is a girl — Mother Nature.

    She’s rained out plenty of games, and left fields soggy enough that they just weren’t playable. And last week against Williamstown, she threw a wild, windy fit.

    But the Wildcats play on, when Mother Nature permits, of course.

    “Our toughest opponent this year has been the weather,” coach Austin Hunsaker said.

    With a 16-7 record, the Henry County High School girls softball team could say they’re pretty good.

    But getting the team to believe that may be a challenge, according to coach Suzanne Cates.

    “I just don’t know if they believe that they’re as good as they really are,” she said. Building confidence is key as the Ladycats head toward the state championships in the All ‘A’ tournament.

  • EHS girls scrap against Lady Rockets

    General Manager

    Against one of the best pitchers in the state, the batting can be tough.

    And for the Eminence High School softball team, the hitting wasn’t happening last week against Shelby County’s Haleigh LeCompte. LeCompte pitched a perfect game, striking out 11 Lady Warriors in just five innings.

    “They had a really nice pitcher, and we struggled hitting it,” EHS coach Chris Nethery said. “We didn’t play horribly.”

    Staff report

    Mountain Wrestling Association will return to the Eminence Community Center on May 23 for another fund raiser.

    This time, the event will raise funds for the Pleasureville Bulldogs baseball team. Tickets can be purchased in advance from any team member for $7, and $1 from each advance ticket goes back to the team. Tickets at the door will be $8.

    MWA member D.J. Current said the group hopes to hold fund raisers each month at the Community Center. The last event raised more than $1,500 for the Maynes family, who lost their home in a fire.

    Flat revenue. A substantial increase in county retirement contributions. Sixteen county roads to be paved. A $125,000 increase in ambulance service revenue.

    Those are among the more significant items in the proposed Henry County budget but they weren’t what generated the most conversation in a special budget meeting of the fiscal court Wednesday afternoon.

    At 23, B.J. Evans of Turners Station likely has seen more of the world than many people twice his age.

    As a specialist in the U.S. Army he was stationed in Illesheim, Germany, three years, and did year-long tours in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    Evans, a Henry County High School graduate, knew early on that the military was in his future. “I joined the reserves while I was still in high school in 2002 and went active duty in 2003,” he said.

    General Manager

    Just what Ed Berry had for breakfast last Tuesday, Steve Frommeyer doesn’t know, but the Eminence High School senior apparently ate his Wheaties.

    In a track meet at Kentucky Country Day, Berry competed in just four events. He won three. He jumped and ran away with four personal bests. He even set a school record.

    “(Ed) probably had his best overall meet of his career,” Frommeyer said. Even teammate John Reed picked up a personal best.
