  • Recyling: finding out where it all goes

    Ever wondered where the materials you place in recycling bins go, once the Rumpke truck stops by to collect them?

    Several Henry County officials were curious about the process and took a field trip Friday, Sept. 23, to the garbage hauler’s recycling facility in the Saint Bernard suburb of northwest Cincinnati.

  • Alcohol sales petition hits goal

    If Roger Hartlage has his way, registered voters in Henry County will have the opportunity to say yes or no to a plan to amend the county’s alcohol laws.

    The magistrate, who represents District 2 on Fiscal Court, has been helping to collect signatures for a petition to put the issue of by-the-drink alcohol sales on the ballot. That would change Henry to a “moist” county, meaning alcohol sales are limited to only a specific class of restaurants.

  • EIS, HCPS fail to make all NCLB goals

    According to data released Tuesday morning, just 42.6 percent of the state’s school districts met all of their NCLB goals. Neither Henry County Public nor Eminence Independent Schools were among those schools.

    Both districts failed to meet all of their NCLB goals; EIS met six of 10, while HCPS met eight of its 13 goals.

    While EIS fell short on meeting any of its math goal – as well as failing to meeting the math and reading goals for students on free/reduced lunch, HCPS failed to meet its reading goals.

  • HC Animal Clinic makes history

    When researchers in Australia were developing what would become adipose stem cell therapy, they tested the procedure on goats.

    And since introducing the procedure to the world, it’s been used to repair tissue damage in a wide variety of animals: cats, dogs, horses, even camels and a parrot.

    Earlier this year, Dr. Clark Slone and the Henry County Animal Clinic used the procedure to treat the arthritic knees of Mongo the dog — who now gets along better than he has in years.

  • A not so happy homecoming

    In their quest to take down the Rockets of Shelby County on homecoming night, the Henry County Wildcats started off strong.
    But turnovers would prove quite costly by the end of the game.

    Henry held the Rockets to four-and-out on their first possession, before marching 76 yards up-field for the first touchdown of the night, a 10-yard scramble by quarterback Dakota Isaacs.

  • Defense shines in Ohio

    Through four games this year, the Eminence High School Warriors’ defense has allowed just 30 points.

    That defense made life a little easier for the Warriors Saturday against Oyler High School in Ohio — a game which quarterback Bradley Foree played with a broken hand.

    It was also a defense that scored nine points for the Warriors and gave Eminence its first shut-out victory of the year, 22-0.

    Oyler was well into Eminence’s side of the field when Justin Mitchell picked off a pass, running it back 81-yards for a touchdown.

  • Coach: Ricketts has strong chance of making state tourney

  • EHS to go pink in HCHS rematch

    Weeks after going teal for ovarian cancer, the Eminence High School volleyball team will have a Pink Out when they return to their home court Monday night after a two-week stint of road games.

    At that game, the Warriors will get a rematch against the Henry County Ladycats. Last week, the Ladycats dropped the Warriors in two games, 25-17, 25-22.

  • Ladycats hitting tourneys on a high note

    By Jonna Spelbring Priester and Willie Peyton

    Entering the 2011 season, Henry County High School Girls’ Golf Coach Kathy Peyton had a new strategy: play more 18-hole tournaments, and fewer nine-hole matches.

    The goal? To better prepare the team for the tournaments at the end of the season.

    Heading into Tuesday’s NCKC tournament and next week’s fifth region tournament, Peyton said the team seemed to be reaching their peak — and at just the right time.
