  • Henry cross aiming towards state meet in November

    Minus the few years when he was the Henry County girls’ basketball coach in the early 2000s, Greg Woods has been the head or assistant coach for Henry’s cross-country team each year since 1989. This fall, after taking the program over from Ricky Drawbaugh, Woods is back in the head position for the first time since 2006.

  • Warriors have the right attitude this year, coach says

    The Eminence cross-country team has the talent, the numbers and the right attitude this fall.

    Head coach Scott McClamroch hopes that translates to the best season since he came on board as the head coach in 2000.

    The Warriors have nine high schoolers listed on their roster, five middle schoolers and three fifth graders. Add into the mix the attitude and a hard-working group of runners, and the ingredients are ripe for a successful year.

  • Golfers aim for a season that includes state tourney

    The Henry County girls’ golf team has accomplished more than any team at HCHS the last few years — winning conference titles, breaking school records and being unbeaten against schools of similar size. But the one objective that eludes the Ladycats is a top-two finish at the regional tournament to advance to state. They hope to change that this season.

  • New coach and new goals for EHS on volleyball court

    The Eminence girls’ volleyball team has a majority of the same players from last year — the squad that won just one game and was eliminated in the opening round of the 28th District tournament — but they now have a new coach and new goals, which they hope will lead to a complete turnaround.

  • Salvation Army to hold kettle drive at DQ Bowl

    General Manager

    Don’t adjust your calendar, thermostat or watch if you head for this weekend’s Dairy Queen Bowl at Henry County High School.

    In addition to football, football and more football, attendees will see something generally reserved for November and December — Salvation Army collection kettles.

    Yes, it’s still August.

    Pastors at Drennon Christian (Disciples of Christ) Church have ministered to its flock since 1862. Just eight weeks ago members welcomed a new clergyman into their fold.

    Reverend Corey Beatty came to the small historic church by way of Louisville’s Northeast Christian Church, which had a congregation of about 3,000, and La Grange Christian Church where he was being groomed as associate pastor for its 100 members. Around 35 souls call Drennon Christian Church home.

  • Looking forward to future headlines

    Surprisingly, students in the county are already roaming the hallways from class to class. Even more surprisingly, though, is the fact that fall sports have already kicked off and are about to get in full swing.

    I know I say this every year, but I can’t believe it’s that time of the season once again. And this year I mean it more than ever. When I was in school, Aug. 26 always fell on the first week of school — I know that because that’s my birthday. Now, the opening day comes sooner and sooner each August, and before long I think it could reach July.

  • The people’s exhibit: Kentucky River history

    Though no travel has been allowed on the Kentucky River in Henry County since 1985, some of the river’s bustling past is preserved at the Henry County Historical Society.

  • Can tougher schedule equate to tougher football team?

    Entering his fourth season as the head coach at Henry County High School, Chris Engstrand has his Wildcats primed for another run in Class 3-A, District Four and hopefully a long stay in the state playoffs. But this year he’s taking a different path to the finish line.
