  • OPENING DAY

    Hosting a tournament on the opening day of the 2011 golf season Monday, the Henry County Ladycats were third in the team standings and their top golfer MacKenzie Peyton was third individually against a 21-team, 73-player field.

    Playing on the same Henry County Country Club course that will host the regional tournament after the regular season in September, Sacred Heart won the team title with 317 combined points, Owen County was second at 355 and Henry was third at 367. There were 21 teams represented and 14 full teams.

  • Jim Green sets records in three sprints

    LEXINGTON, Ky — Those who watched sprinter Jim Green set three state records Saturday in Lexington, in the Class A Track and Field Meet know what the Eminence youth meant when he said:

    “There wasn’t anybody to push me, so I was just running against the clock.”

    Green had the crowd of about 1,500 buzzing at the University of Kentucky’s Sportscenter when he left his opposition far back in the 100, 220 and 440-yard dashes.

    Green provided Eminence with its only scoring punch with his three victories (worth six points each).

  • Looking for more players

    In an effort to attract more football players to a struggling Henry County Youth Football League, most notably the Eastern Colts, the deadline for signups has been extended to Aug. 19.

    Players report to JAM Day this Saturday for weigh ins and to submit a completed roster — which in the past served as the cutoff point for players to join one of the five teams in the league — but they can continue to signup during the next two weeks.

    Overall, the numbers are alarmingly down from past seasons in the HCYFL, lower than they’ve been in years.

  • ‘Having a stroke isn’t the end of the world’

    On Nov. 8, 2010, Claude Salisbury was lying in bed, looking at his LED alarm clock. Suddenly, he said, his thought process just stopped.

  • Everything old is new again in fitness

    Every woman knows that if she hangs onto some favorite item of clothing it will come into fashion again. For men it’s the width of the tie, the size of the jacket lapel, and the number of suit buttons that recycle again and again. Often there is about a 20-year turn around for styles in clothing, and the same holds true in other areas. When looking at current trends in fitness, one can see that many “old school” workouts are again popular. Just like fashion, the fabric may be updated, but the basic style is similar.

  • Getting ready to go back to school
