    After a two-win campaign last spring, the Eminence baseball team will open the season playing at Anderson County next Tuesday night. Anderson is coming off a 20-win season (20-13) and beat Eminence, 17-1 in five innings in the opener last year.

  • HCHS Track

    Following a record-breaking season in which Henry County track athletes qualified for the KHSAA State Championship in 11 different events, the Wildcats look to build on last year’s success with 60 athletes listed on the roster.

    Highlighted by Travis Farmer’s third-place finish in the pole vault, there were seven Henry County athletes who qualified for the state meet last June. The Henry County boys finished 18th in Class 2-A, the Henry County girls finished 25th, and they capped off what might have been the best season ever for the track team.

  • Slow down and put the kettle on

    It was a seemingly innocuous comment. “I bought one of those Hot Pots,” a friend said. “I got tired of waiting for the tea kettle to boil water.”

    It was a sign of many things, not the least of which is how my friend and I have changed, or how our ways have parted, in the last 10 years.

    Waiting for a tea kettle to boil is among my favorite things in the morning.

  • HCHS SBDM elections

    Each year parents have the opportunity to be elected as a parent representative for the HCHS School Based Decision Making Council (SBDM).

    The council is composed of the principal, three teachers and two parent representatives.

  • What does wellness really mean?

    We often hear the term “wellness” and think “healthy” or lack of illness.
    Much study and research has been done in recent decades in the subject of wellness. We now know that wellness means much more than simply a lack of disease. It means to thrive in your life on a variety of levels.

  • An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure

    I grew up in a small town where my family doctor delivered me and knew all about my interests, my grades and even the sports I played.

  • I don’t know which is more uncomfortable, the talking or the prep

    Many people my age (which if you have to ask, you’re not there yet) probably can agree on one thing.

    It’s hard to know which is more uncomfortable - preparing for a colonoscopy or talking to the doctor about why you think you need one.

    General opinion holds that the procedure itself is the easiest part - owing to the likelihood of extreme sedation.
