  • Yellow flower isn’t wanted

    Over the last few weeks, I have received numerous calls about the yellow flowers growing in many crop fields. In some cases, a few callers have wondered if Henry County farmers were cultivating flowers.
    I don’t want to the bearer of bad news, but the yellow flower you are viewing is cressleaf groundsel. It is a winter annual weed that is very prolific and can be poisonous to cattle and horses.

  • ‘The Mystery of the Silver Trays’ revealed

    There were four of us. We were boys on a mission of discovery. For more than a year, we had been trying to solve a mystery.
    We were as silent as mice as we hid behind the trees on the west side of the church parking lot.  
    The early dark of the evening aided us in hiding. Any minute we knew we would see them.  
    Jack had seen them go over and had called the rest of us to watch.  
    It was only a matter of time before they came back.
    They never stayed all that long, and they always came back.

  • Taking the pledge to sit less, move more

    Not to be a hypochondriac or anything, but the increased discussion around “the sitting disease” has soaked in. It sounds like something I’ve already caught.

    Folks who read any news at all, like me, have probably been exposed to the growing consensus that inactivity serves as the enemy of good health. 

    Thinking back to this past winter, more than once I used the excuse of the weirdly warm and wet weather as an excuse to beg off on my normal goal of walking at least two miles a day. 

  • Wildcats win three vs. EHS, Lloyd and Valley


    Zack Woods took advantage of his first varsity start at Eminence April 24. The sophomore went the distance in shutting out the Warriors in Henry County’s 14-0 win.

    Woods pitched five innings and gave up only four hits while striking out seven and walking two.

    He got plenty of offensive support as the Wildcats got multi-hit games from Daniel Murray and Justin Edens. Murray had a single, a home run and five RBIs while Edens had a single and a double with one RBI.

  • Golden's walk off leads Lady Cat comeback


    The Henry County Lady Cats needed a seventh inning rally and two extra innings to come out of district seeding play undefeated when they hosted Owen County April 25.

    Senior first baseman Lilly Golden got the game-winning hit in the bottom of the ninth but it took a couple of big defensive plays prior to that hit to keep the Lady Cats alive.

    The Lady Cats struggled at the plate through the first four innings and fell behind 5-0 going into the bottom of the fifth when they finally broke through for a run.
