  • Cats ready to move on after loss

    A week after upsetting Anderson County in what was one of the biggest wins for the Henry County football program, the Wildcats took a 49-13 loss to Owensboro Catholic on Friday night.

    It was not what coach Lyndon Johnson was looking for, especially coming off the huge win against Anderson.

    Owensboro Catholic was ahead 21-0 after the first quarter, scored the game’s first 28 points, did not allow the visiting Wildcats a touchdown until the second half, and cruised in for the 36-point victory.

  • Campbellsburg City Hall needs a change

    Prior to last week’s Campbellsburg City Council Meeting, councilman Rex Morgan requested a copy of the Campbellsburg’s City Attorney’s contract. They were not available at that meeting. We learned why at last week’s special meeting. They had been copied and placed at each council member’s seat prior to the meeting, but had been removed prior to the meeting by Mayor Jan Fletcher.

  • Where is the creative thinking?

    Watching Judge Brent at the Sept. 20 Campbellsburg City Council meeting was interesting.  He was there to request funds from Campbellsburg for the further development of the Kentucky 55 Campbellsburg Industrial Park.  Perhaps if he had not allocated so many funds to “Brent Park” he would not have  had to request funds from the city council.

  • A new catch for the depot

    General Manager

    A new restaurant could come to Pleasureville soon.

    Former Kingfish Restaurants CEO Ed Penziner spoke to the city’s commission Monday night, outlining what he’d like to do.

    Utilizing the depot, Penziner said he’s considering a bakery, but will tailor the operation to what the community is interested in. Penziner already has looked at the community demographics, and believes something that is “good, made from scratch food,” is what the restaurant would include.

  • Eminence gets another test from another top team

    The improving Eminence volleyball team played just one match last week, dropping its lone outing to Martha Layne Collins High School, 2-0, on Thursday night.

    Coach Stephanie Meadows was not pleased with her squad’s performance but did say she hopes they can come away from this game with a stronger desire to win, and play competitive against the top teams like Collins.

  • Re-elect County Judge John Logan Brent

    On Nov. 2, 2010 the citizens of Henry County will be electing a county judge executive. It has been my honor and privilege to work with our current county judge executive. While mayor of the city of Campbellsburg Judge Brent worked with me in securing a grant in excess of 2.5 million dollars for the infrastructure plan for our city. Our frequent trips to Frankfort gave me first hand knowledge that Judge Brent knew his way around Frankfort.

    After being temporarily displaced earlier this year, Henry County Adult Education is alive and well in its new home at the Community Life Center in Eminence.

    When the building it occupied had to be razed to accommodate New Castle Elementary School’s expansion, the program needed a new address and this location offers a lot of amenities.
