  • Saving energy saves money

    As a concerned teen, saving energy is very important to do. I read about a very simple way to save energy. It barely takes any time at all and can even save people money.

    Saving energy is a very important thing in our society today. Doing this is extremely simple. If you turn off a fluorescent light for five seconds you save more energy than is required to turn on the light. If you leave the light off for five to 15 minutes you might even save money.

  • Main Street brings benefits to the city

    I recently learned that the New Castle City Commission is considering dropping out of the Main Street Program. I think this would be a serious mistake. During my tenure as Mayor and Commissioner, the city's participation in Main Street brought tremendous benefits to the city and continues to do so.

  • Oral History Project underway at CEO

    General Manager

    For almost 40 years, Billy Garwood of Crestwood didn't share his story.

    A chance conversation while working as a mechanic in Louisville fixed that when Garwood was told by an employer to never discuss the Vietnam War. And for more than 35 years, he didn't talk about his experiences, at least not with people who weren't veterans themselves.

    And that, Garwood told students at the Center for Educational Options Monday morning, was one of the bad times.

  • Pleasureville suspends police chief

    The Pleasureville City Commission suspended its police chief Friday, Jan. 11, in a special called meeting. The suspension was effective immediately until a hearing can take place on allegations made against Stucker earlier in the week.

  • HCHS Swim Cats back in water after long break from racing

    After a five-week break from racing, the Henry County Swim Cats dove back into competition last week with two meets. The team, composed of twins Kaitlin and Kara Blair and coached by their mother Melanie, raced at the Family Activity Center in Shelbyville last Wednesday and at Kentucky State University in Frankfort Saturday.

    Both girls got a jump start to the new year with season-best times.

  • Cats storm comeback, but lose in OT

    The Henry County Wildcats' downward skid of losses stretched to six straight Friday night against Owen County, but the Cats were just a few plays away from being in the win column for the first time since they defeated East Jessamine the day after Christmas.

    Instead, they took a 57-51 overtime loss.

  • Playbook includes prayer

    If you watch the Henry County High School boys' basketball team closely, you will learn a few things. You will learn that the Wildcats are struggling a bit right now but are young with unlimited potential. You will learn they are usually undersized with a number of wing players, leaving Cody Hinkle and Cari Dunaway to do the dirty work inside on the boards. And you will learn that when they are on - with some deadly shooters on hand like Ben Roberts, Joey Pollard and Steven Tillett - they are on.

  • Ladycats break skid with 'big' win over Owen County

    The Henry County Ladycats took the lead with 3:30 left in the final quarter against the visiting Owen County Lady Rebels, and never looked back.

    The Ladycats, who were behind 34-28 before they came alive, used an 11-0 spurt during a crucial three-minute stretch to grab a manageable lead. They then held on for a 42-36 win in the closing minutes to snap an eight-game losing streak and improve to 3-10 overall, 2-4 in district play.

  • One step forward, two back for Lady Warriors

    The Eminence Lady Warriors might have ended their basketball game at Shelby County last Thursday with a lopsided 54-18 loss, but they took a step in the right direction during the fourth quarter when they won the final eight minutes of play, 10-7.

    But two days later, it was a step in the wrong direction for the Lady Warriors when they were defeated by Beechwood, a team nowhere near Shelby's caliber, 36-13. Now, Eminence coach Carter Martin is searching for answers.
