  • Stop messing with the thermostat!

    It’s a source of contention in many households. Cold natured folks and hot natured folks battle for temperature control.

    In my own home, Derek (the cold natured one) and I (the warm natured one), can’t seem to agree on just what temperature we want the house.

    Give them your old, your worn-out, your shoes you no longer yearn to wear.

Mark Fassio said shoes collected during Homecoming Spirit Week will be recycled for EDGE Outreach’s Shoeman Water Projects in Haiti.

  • MacKenzie Peyton headed to state!

    Winning the North Central Kentucky Conference championship for the first time since the 1990s, the Henry County boys’ golf team came through when it mattered the most.

    The Wildcats hosted the conference tournament last Tuesday at the Henry County Country Club, finishing with a four-person combined score of 339 to win by four strokes. It was the focal point of 2010.

  • Kasten trying to get individuals to ‘play as team’

    After losing two district games last week and winning what could have been the deciding game for the conference championship, Henry County coach Jon Kasten said he has not been pleased with his team’s recent play on the volleyball court.

    The Ladycats were coming off five straight wins before dropping three of their next four. They are now 8-6 overall.

  • Searching for that perfect shade tree

    Most folks who know me can attest that I love being outside.

    My idea of a vacation isn’t sitting up in a hotel for a week — it’s putting my clothes, food and tent in a backpack and hoofing it several miles through the woods for a few days.

    Heck, each year after the fair I retreat to a favorite campground or trail to relax for a week or so.

    Staff writer/photographer

    A conditional use permit application that would allow Liter’s Quarry in Lockport to complete the purchase of a 62-acre tract adjoining current operations has been tabled until Oct. 25 by the Henry County Board of Adjustments.

    Liter’s Vice-President of Operations Barry Hornback said the tract is needed to expand the mine’s underground area only. “We will not be adding buildings or structures,” he said.
