    The Eminence baseball team is still searching for its first win of the season, but things are definitely looking brighter for the squad that took a state-record 58-0 beating from Anderson County two weeks ago.

  • Student comes before athlete

    When Henry County’s track team loaded the bus to head off to the Harry Greschel Christian Academy Invitational this past Saturday, nine athletes were missing due to poor grades. It definitely had an affect on the team’s performance that day, leaving them empty handed in most of the events and without enough athletes to field some relays.

    The Henry County Ladycats didn't get as many wins as they would have liked at the Sports Warehouse Classic - the premier tournament in the state, held at Owensboro Catholic High School over the weekend - but it wasn't a complete disappointed either.

    The Cats earned one win against "very tough" opponents, put themselves in position to win a few more games and, more importantly, improved their swing while facing some overpowering pitchers.

    See that banana? It has a story.

    Wrapped in a yellow peel, its journey likely began on an Equador plantation. Then chop. Wrap. Ship. Consume.

    Most produce in the U.S. is picked four to seven days before being placed on supermarket shelves. It's shipped in refrigerated crates for an average of 1,500 miles before being sold.

  • County needs better connectivity

    Why is it that Henry County can't attract new businesses, so there can be local jobs for local people?

    According to the Ky Deskbook of Economic Statistics, 59 percent of Henry County's workforce is employed out of the county, and 46.3 percent of them travel more than 30 minutes to get to their job destinations.

    The cost of living is going up daily, due largely to the gas crisis. The spending power of a paycheck is dwindling, but just how much of it is going to the increased cost of just getting to work?
