  • Ladycats beat Carroll, fall to W-V

    It was the best of games, and it was the worst of games, last week for the Ladycats volleyball team.

    Henry County opened the week with a 2-1 win over Carroll County that showcased the team’s ability to come back from a deficit.

    After falling 16-25 in the first game of the match, Henry County bounced back in a big way, storming past Carroll County 25-17 and 25-13 in the second and third games.

  • Air traffic control not a problem

    Two games into the season, Eminence High School has developed a reputation for passing.

    So it was only natural that the Trimble County High School Raiders would focus on Brandon and Justin Mitchell. Justin Mitchell, after all, set more than a couple records for receiving the last time the Warriors took the field.

    Much to the Raiders’ chagrin, however, the Warriors can run the ball just about as well as they can pass it.

  • Wildcats go claw-to-claw with Bellevue

    All it took was one play. Just one.

    And it was a play that some coaches in the same position might not make. Go for the safe choice, and a point-after-touchdown, or go for the win on a two-point conversion?

    With the Henry County Wildcats up by one perilous point against Bellevue after a Tigers’ touchdown, Bellevue went all or nothing.

    They went for two — and got it.

    “They made one more play than we did,” Henry County Head Coach Jason Spencer said. “They went for two and converted.”

  • For small churches, upkeep is costly

    When times are tight economically, most families will do what they can to cut spending so they can afford the necessities.

    Jeff Bramel, pastor of Pleasureville United Methodist Church, said sometimes hard times will force families to stop tithing, making a bad economy even worse for smaller churches like his.

  • Bank warns residents of phone scam

    A new phone scam has worked its way into Henry County, and its after your debit card number.

    Carroll Yates, President of Farmer’s Deposit Bank in Eminence, said his bank received one call Monday during business hours, and then several more after business hours about an automated call some customers — and non-customers — received.

    The source number for the automated call has varied, with one customer reporting that the caller ID showed their own phone number calling. Another reported a phone number out of Bedford, Texas.

  • Officials present plan for KY-146

  • Henry bounces back from S. Oldham loss to beat Shelby

    A one-win, one-loss week might make some coaches grit their teeth. Not Shannon Snider.

    The Henry County Girl’s Soccer team head coach found the silver lining in the team’s 0-10 loss to South Oldham on Aug. 29.

    “We played really, really hard the whole game, which, a few years ago, wasn’t necessarily happening with that type of team,” he said. “We put out a good effort the whole 80 minutes.”
