    Edens Echo Farm is comprised of a five-acre plot of land, enough for a big garden and small orchard, a few goats and sheep, plus chickens that lay and some to fry.

    The Adam and Eve who tend this Eden are Ben and Kristin Secaur, but they don’t tend it alone.

  • County teams advance to middle school state playoffs

    Henry County Middle School is still perfect at 8-0, Eminence Middle School has just one blemish on its record at 8-1, and both teams will play in the middle school state playoffs starting this week.

    It marks the first time both teams have qualified for the playoffs in one of the three divisions that make up middle school football in Kentucky. With Division 1 being the largest, Henry plays in Division 2 and Eminence in Division 3.

  • Frankfort wins again

    Frankfort’s perfect streak of district wins continues.

    Since the state’s football realignment in 2007, Frankfort has won all 16 of its District Four outings en route to three district championships and has established itself as one of the leading Class A programs in the area.

    Eminence has lost to the Panthers in their last five meetings, and it was no different on Friday night as Frankfort used its speed to jump out to an early 21-0 lead and cruised in for the 34-6 victory.

  • Eminence takes Anderson to tie-breaker third game

    An Eminence season that was highlighted by the volleyball squad celebrating more wins than the last four years combined came to an end Monday night with a 2-1 loss to Anderson County in the first round of the 30th District tournament.

    Playing inside the small but rowdy gym at Henry County High School, the Lady Warriors forced a tie-breaker third game in the best-of-three series but could not pull out another win over a team they had beaten just one week earlier. Despite the loss, it was a fitting end for a team raising its expectations.

  • Henry Co. knocked out by Lexington Catholic

    Playing against a middle school that doesn’t even exist, the Henry County Middle School football season came to an end on Saturday in the quarterfinals of the Division 2 State Playoffs.

    Henry was perfect at 8-0 during the regular season, and beat Owen County and Western in the first two rounds of the playoffs. But against Lexington Catholic — a team composed of separate middle schools in the Lexington area but is allowed to play as a single team — Henry lost 14-12 to end what was a remarkable season. Maybe the best ever for HCMS.
