  • Cats display best 'team effort' in Trimble win, coach says

    Against Trimble County last Monday night, the Henry County Wildcats snapped a six-game losing streak by defeating the Raiders, 63-49. But more important than a win, it was one of the best team efforts in a long time, coach Jason Holland said.

    Three Wildcats reached double digits in scoring with Cody Hinkle (16 points), Ben Roberts (10 points) and Steven Tillett (10 points), eight different players scored, including 19 points from the bench, and Henry had 15 assists, 15 steals and forced Trimble into 22 turnovers.

  • Consistent play is key for Henry County Ladycats

    After a 42-36 win over Owen County on Jan. 11, the Henry County Ladycats dropped two basketball games the following week, which left them at 3-12 overall. The Cats lost to Walton-Verona (59-43) last Monday and Spencer County (54-36) Friday.

    Kelsey Mings combined for 21 points and Jessica Booher 15, but it wasn't enough.

  • Second-half woes prove costly for EHS

    The Eminence Lady Warriors played one of their best halves of basketball this season last Tuesday night against the visiting Bardstown Lady Tigers, but in flip-flop fashion followed with one their worst halves, which resulted in a lopsided 56-18 loss.

    Eminence was behind 10-8 following the first quarter and 24-16 at the half. By the time the Bardstown-dominated third quarter came to an end, though, the Lady Tigers were in front 49-17, outscoring Eminence 25-1 during the eight-minute stretch.

  • Warriors back on the winning side of things

    Finally, the Eminence boys' basketball team put a check in the win column Saturday night with a 58-49 outing against Paris High School, which broke a 12-game slump and gave the Warriors their second win of the season.

    It was a check long overdue.

    "The guys really needed this game," Eminence coach Keith Blackburn said of his 2-14 squad. "They've worked so hard, have stuck together through adversity and this was a deserving win against a quality opponent."

    The Warriors went back to the basics a few weeks ago, Blackburn said, and it showed on the court against Paris.

    Here lately everyone has been talking about Global Warming. A lot of celebrities come out and say we all need to do our part. So how can you do your part to help global warming? You can start by eating less meat. Yes, it's true. This works by reducing the amount of livestock that then decreases the amount of methane flatulence from the animals.

  • Schools likely to feel a pinch in '09, county OK

    General Manager

    As the Kentucky General Assembly looks to get control of a projected state budget shortfall of nearly $400 million over the next two years, local officials are preparing for the impact that shortfall will mean in Henry County.

    Henry County Judge-Executive John Logan Brent said the overall impact for Henry County likely would be small. But community projects might be the first to go. "As they get into number-crunching, probably any of those special community-type projects that help your community (to) grow, get cut," he said.
