  • Bat Cats slug way to two wins

    The Henry County Wildcats’ baseball team got their offense going last week by scoring 39 runs in three games while going 2-1 for the week.

  • Track Cats compete at Oldham, Collins

    The Henry County Wildcat track team traveled to Oldham County for their first track meet of the season on Apr. 8 and had several impressive performances.

    Cathryn Fischer led the girls’ team with a fifth place finish in the 300 meter hurdles and a seventh place finish in the long jump.

    Ricki Carter had a fifth place finish in the 100-meter hurdles.

    Tierra Allison had a strong showing in the throwing events. She placed sixth in the discus and fifth in the shot put. Both her throws were personal records to start the season.

  • Demons down Warrios in All A

    The second and third innings told the story for the Warriors as Williamstown plated 10 runs in the second, including a grand slam home run, and six in the third to put the first round All A Classic regional tournament game away early.

     “We had a couple of errors with one out that would have gotten us out the inning before the grand slam,” Coach Jay Virgin said. “Six of those ten runs were unearned because we should have had three outs before they crossed the plate.”

  • Statewide spring wild turkey season opened Saturday

    Submitted by the Ky. Fish and Wildlife Dept.

     

    Hunters could have the long winter to thank for what is shaping up to be a good start to Kentucky’s statewide spring wild turkey season, which opened Saturday, April 12, and runs through May 4.

    “The timing of the first peak in gobbling and our season opener should be pretty close this year because the long winter somewhat delayed the arrival of spring,” said Steven Dobey, wild turkey program coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

  • Divide and conquer strategy blurs vision

    Average Joe

    A nice fellow has been traveling around the county lately, soliciting the assistance of others in helping those who are unable to help themselves. I intend to support his cause. I have seen his presentation twice—it is a gentle, soft-sell pitch in which he asks for our help. During both presentations he used the phrase “this is not a hand out.”

  • No budget, but several new laws will benefit Kentucky

    Traditionally, the last day of a legislative session is set aside just to consider any vetoes the governor may make.  Recently, however, the General Assembly has also used the time to wrap up a few lingering issues, and this year is no different.
