  • Ladycats earn first win in dominating fashion

    Henry County's first home game of the season started with question marks and ended with a lopsided finish.

    The Ladycats, coming off a 24-17 record last spring and losing their first two games this season, wasted no time in putting away Carroll County last Monday night, and stretched their advantage to 14-0 by the time the teams shook hands after the game. The win left the Cats at 1-2 overall, 1-0 in district play, and in the driver's seat for their third straight 31st District title.

  • It's youth versus experience in Lady Warriors opener

    In Eminence's first softball game of this season, Shelby County had a slugfest while the Lady Warriors struggled on both sides of the ball, resulting in a 16-0 win for Shelby after just three innings of play.

    It was the fourth game of the season for the Lady Rockets, who defeated Spencer County (15-0) and Butler (5-0), and lost to Scott County (5-3). Meanwhile, the weather kept the Lady Warriors off the field until they met the tough Shelby squad last Tuesday night in Shelbyville.

  • Cats host All-Comers track meet

    Led by three first-place finishes from senior Larry Farmer, along with a pair of first from both Jamie Graham and Brittany Crawford, the Henry County track team hosted the Henry County All-Comers last Tuesday afternoon.

    Farmer won the 800-meter run in 2 minutes and 15 seconds, the 1,600-meter run in 5:15 and completed a rare trifecta with triple jump win of 35 feet and 1.5 inches. Meanwhile, Graham won the high jump (4-06) and the triple jump (25-00), while Crawford won both the 100-meter hurdles (16.6) and the 300-meter hurdles (57.3).

  • Wildcats progressing, but still waiting on key hits

    Still waiting on one big hit to get everyone's confidence up to par, the Henry County baseball team took its first defeat of the season at Spencer County last Wednesday night, 3-2.

    The loss goes along with Henry's wins over Trimble County (5-1) and Model High School (5-0) the week before, which gives the Wildcats a 2-1 start to the unpredictable season.

  • Hoopla comes to an end with Curtis Blevins on top of list

    Boy, I'm glad that's over.

    If you see me sprinting from light pole to light pole through town, don't worry, I'm just trying to avoid being seen after this year's Henry Hoopla contest. It's become an annual tradition for me though - filling out my bracket with high hopes, letting everyone in the community know who's going to win, then slowly backpedaling down the list until I hit close to rock bottom. Usually by this time, shortly after the final weekend of games, I'm a bit embarrassed to leave the office.

  • First time on track, no problem

    Not only did the Eminence track team participate in its first track meet of the season last Tuesday night at the Henry County All-Comers, it was the first time the Warriors had been on a track in more than 10 months.

  • New pest control company aims to "do it right"

    General Manager

    If you have a nasty bug crawling in your house, who you gonna call?

    You could call the newest bug buster in town, Star Pest Control in Pleasureville.

    The Pleasureville office, operated by David Frakes, is a branch of Star Pest Control of Shelbyville.

    "Basically, I've opened up a franchise under his company, hopefully to supply pest control services to Henry County," Frakes said.

    Though Frakes looked at several locations in Henry County, he opted for Pleasureville because of the community.

  • Thanks for help with Senior Project

    I wanted my senior project to mean something. I wanted it to somehow help the community, but I also wanted it to be different. I knew I wanted two things to come out of my project. That was to raise money for juvenile diabetes and to have the Kentucky State University Phi Beta Sigma to perform at our school. I also wanted to feed the volunteers that helped me with my project. I mailed out letters to the surrounding businesses asking for donations for a silent auction or to help feed the volunteers. I made flyers and put them up at different locations.

  • Kicking the habit

    A student stole her last puff from a cigarette in the campus parking lot before heading into Henry County High School last week. She tossed the butt out the window of her car, doused herself with body spray and scrambled to beat the morning bell.

    Today is National Kick Butts Day, a day when students are supposed to stand out, speak up and seize control in the fight against tobacco.

  • Serving up community

    Landmark News Service

    As dancers tried to "stomp" out juvenile diabetes in the Eminence High School gymnasium Saturday, organizer Sydney Armstrong lost sight that the event was also fulfilling a graduation requirement.

    A crowd clapped in rhythm as step dancers from Kentucky State University entertained throughout the afternoon. Armstrong, an Eminence senior, joined 31 of his classmates and all seniors from Henry County by completing a required community service project this year.
