  • Reclaiming lost memories

    As recent graduates of Eminence High School, we remember being told often, if not every day, "Always do the right thing" and "Always make good choices."

  • Landmark sale came as a surprise to many

    I often say that change isn't such a bad thing. Change shakes things up a little bit. Change keeps us from holding the line for the status quo. It keeps us on our toes. It makes life ... interesting. I got a taste of that last week.

    I came to work Thursday morning and was greeted with a short message from a fellow editor - check your e-mail now. She'd forwarded to me a link to an article that would shape the rest of our day.

    It's a situation all Kentucky State Police officers are trained to handle - at any time, an officer may have to fire his or her weapon.

    That scenario occurred on Dec. 29, when KSP Sergeant Howard Rice and Trooper Kyle Moffett shot, and killed, 39-year-old Darrell Corley.

  • Eminence unable to defeat Brown High School a second time, lose 31-27

    In a rematch of Eminence's 28-19 win over Brown High School just one week earlier, the Eminence Lady Warriors were unable to come away with another win over the Lady Bears Saturday night. This time around, Eminence came away four points short, losing 31-27.

    Brown stuck two players on Rachel Raisor, one on Candace Wells and one on Kelli Hawkins, while letting the other roam free. Raisor, despite the double coverage, still led Eminence in scoring with 10 points. Hawkins finished with nine points, Wells scored seven and Samantha Congelton added one.

  • Vision becomes reality

    During the 1980s - before Todd Gilley arrived at Henry County High School, before the football field switched directions from east-west to north-south and before a running track was laid around the field - visions were in place for a new athletic fieldhouse. The athletic programs needed a place to lift weights and workout, people in the community thought more than two decades ago.

    Now, with the help of Gilley, who transfered to Oldham County High School for four years before returning to HCHS as the athletics director in 2002, that vision has been completed.

  • Cats take second 11-point loss to Gallatin County this season

    The Henry County Wildcats had their first full week of practice with the entire basketball team last week, had a six-day break following a tough schedule that included 12 games in December and had Brad Taylor, who missed 10 games due to mono, back on the court.

    But all this, along with the comforts of playing in their own gym, wasn't enough to overcome Gallatin County Friday night.
