  • Seniors post 5k times under 20m, but don’t make state cut

    Despite posting solid times Saturday, no runner from Henry County qualified for the state cross country championships.
    Eminence’s Adam Case ran the 5k qualifying race in 19:47, his second fastest time this season, but not quite enough to qualify for the Class A Championships.

  • Tunovers costly in Eminence loss to Ludlow

    “Do what I said, do it with class. You say good game, good season, good luck.”

    It could’ve been Eminence High School football head coach Steve Frommeyer saying those words Friday night. And he may have.

    But it was Ludlow High School head coach Rick Hornsby Sr. His Panthers defeated Frommeyer’s Warriors 55-28, and drew Eminence’s season to a close.

  • 'Cats give their all in 14-7 loss

    They saved their best for last.

    It may not have been quite enough to overcome the Corbin Redhounds, who defeated the Wildcats 14-7, and advanced to the second round of the class 3A playoffs.

    “The kids played outstanding,” head coach Jason Spencer said.

    “The kids played hard, they never quit. It wasn’t depressing — our kids fought the entire game.”

    District 1 Magistrate Scott Bates said he is hoping to schedule a meeting for later this week to bring all the agencies involved together to discuss the changeover, so he can present the issue to Fiscal Court at its regular meeting Tuesday, Nov. 15.

  • Back to the drawing board

    Exorbitant bids on the animal shelter project last week forced Trimble and Henry county officials to return to the drawing board with architects to find ways to cut construction costs.

    A plan for the 2,144-square-foot facility, to be built on two acres of land on Sulphur Road donated to Trimble County by Republic, owner of the nearby Valley View Landfill, was designed by 5253 Design Group in Louisville. The firm estimated the project at $217,000.

  • A kick in the park

    Monday night, they gathered at a leisurely pace at Harry Hill Park; men and women of various ages and various athletic abilities.

    Once the teams were assembled, they took the small baseball field, in turns, to boot a soft-ish rubber ball as hard as they could.

    With rules similar to adult co-ed softball, two teams kicked it out for five innings before Odds & Ends was declared the winner with 12 runs to Campbellsburg Baptist Church’s zero.

    The teams were gatherd as part of a small, but enthusiastic group of adult kickball players.
