Today's News

  • 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.

  • April is Donate Life Month

    Since April is recognized as Donate Life Month both nationally and here in Kentucky, I feel that this is a good time to thank the many Henry Countians who have supported organ and tissue donation at our drivers license counter by donating $1 in support of our Kentucky Circuit Court Clerks Trust for Life and by placing their name on the new Kentucky Organ Donor Registry.

  • C'Burg to consider annexation

    General Manager

    Campbellsburg may be growing - literally.

    Though the topic has been a matter of speculation among elected officials regarding the city's population, the city's boundaries may expand.

    During the March meeting of the Campbellsburg City Council, Mayor Carl Rucker discussed the possibility of annexing land north of I-71. Initially, Rucker said he would like to go as far north as the Trimble County line, but discussion during the meeting changed that northern boundary to Kentucky 1606.

    Rucker said the council seemed accepting of the idea.
