  • More evidence we need the REINS Act

    Traveling through Kentucky’s Fourth District during the August district work period, I have had the chance to speak with a number of small business owners, local bankers, health care providers and farmers who are very concerned about the impact of new regulations on their businesses.  They want to know: what is being done to deal with the unaccountable onslaught of these job-crushing rules?

  • Thanks to you!

    We want to thank the many individuals, organizations, and churches that have made donations of clothes, food, hygiene, school supplies, etc. in the past few months!  We appreciate the churches and individuals so much for all of the time that they volunteered during the Hearts of Grace Clothes Give Away!  Without the many hearts and hands of the community, this event would not have taken place!  You served over 500 people (adults and children) with clothes!

  • More history in Frankfort than can be covered in one trip

    While the classroom experience for Kentucky students invariably changes from decade to decade, there is still one constant that binds one generation to the next: A field trip to the state capital.

    Thousands of children make the trek each year, seeing such common sites as the larger-than-life statue of President Lincoln in the Capitol Rotunda and, just a few miles away, the Old State Capitol’s self-supporting staircase, which for more than 180 years has been anchored by a well-placed keystone.

  • Middle School Warriors drop Gallatin County


    The Eminence Middle School football team played the Gallatin County Middle School football team at home on Aug. 25. The Warriors fought hard for a 20-14 win.
    Eminence found the end zone first on a 20-yard-run by Austin Perry late in the first quarter. Gallatin threatened late in the 2nd quarter but the Warriors held strong at the goal line as time ran out to take a 6-0 lead into halftime.

  • Bengals results

    The Bengals JV team got their first win of the season with a 26-13 win over the New Castle Chiefs. On offense, the Bengals were led by Eli Amiott with two touchdowns and 95 yards rushing. Tyler Boyer had a 50-yard touchdown run and a two point conversion. Ethan Lankford had 80 yards rushing. On defense the Bengals were led by Boyer with 12 tackles Lankford with 10 and a fumble recovery for a touchdown and Amiott had eight tackles.

  • How low can they go?

    Hosting Williamstown High School on Aug. 23, the Henry County Boys’ Golf team posted their lowest score of the season — a 169-214 win.

    Head Coach Barney Sutley said the score was a seven-stroke improvement off of the season’s best score to date.

    Trent Whitaker led the Wildcats with a 38 — his low round on the season so far — followed by Matt Ricketts with a 42, followed by Nathan Paris with a 43, and Garrett Black with a 46. Allen Dillon, who also played but whose score was not counted toward the team total, shot a 53.

  • Ladycats storm back with 3-0 week

    The opening game of their season left a bitter taste in the mouths of the Ladycats. It burned. It stung. It wasn’t forgotten.

    After their 0-6 loss to Spencer County on Aug. 18, the Henry County High School Girls Soccer team roared back — beating Carroll County 3-1; Whitefield Academy 8-1; and Jeffersontown 3-2; all in the same week.

    That initial loss served to, as coach Shannon Snider said last week, shake the dust off. Last week’s wins boosted morale.

  • Wildcats drop the ball

    In their 28-6 loss to Walton-Verona, the Henry County Wildcats may have had better luck wrestling with a greased pig.

    “We could not hold onto the football,” Coach Jason Spencer said. “The ball hit the ground at least 15 times. (We had) no ball security.”

  • Warriors win battle; lose the war

    The coach was screaming as loud as the Lady Warriors faithful — but not in a bad way.

    With each point, she screamed. With each point she clapped. And with some, she threw her head back and threw her fist into the air, caught in the joy of the moment.

    As the Warriors volleyball team inched its way forward and took the lead in the second game of its best-of-three match against Bardstown, Stephanie Barrows was screaming, cheering, pumping her fist along with players on the bench and fans in the crowd.

  • Warriors soar over Golden Eagles, 52-18

    Barely two minutes into their game against Shawnee High School, the Eminence Warriors started a trend. It was the Bradley Foree-Brandon Mitchell connection — a record-setting connection.

    Together, the two teamed up for five touchdown pass receptions. Those touchdowns broke a schoole record held by Ed Berry for the most touchdown receptions in one game. Eminence Head Coach Steve Frommeyer said Mitchell’s five touchdown receptions are tied for second in the state’s history.
