  • Martin not worried about scoreboard in team's 0-6 start

    The Eminence Lady Warriors dropped three more basketball games last week, which gave them a 0-6 start to the 2007-08 season and 50 losses in the previous 52 tries.

    But coach Carter Martin, who took over the struggling program a year ago, isnt concerned with the win-loss columns right now. Instead, hes concerned with the squad getting better, and prepping the young team for games down the road.

    "The scores might not indicate what the team is learning," Martin said, "but from a coaching perspective, I see a little bit of improvement each game, which is a good thing."

  • Wildcats earn first district win ... 68-57 over Carroll

    For the first time this season, the Henry County Wildcats played with intensity all four quarters last Tuesday night against the visiting Carroll County Panthers. And in the end, it led to a 68-57 win over Carroll in the Wildcats' opening home game of the season.

    Henry put three players in double figures - Cody Hinkle with 23 points, Cari Dunaway with 13 points and Ben Roberts with 10 points - and forced Carroll into 21 turnovers in the up-and-down game. The Wildcats were ahead by as many as 21 points late in the third quarter, and cruised in for the 11-point victory.

  • Ladycats run out of steam against district champs

    With six minutes remaining in the fourth quarter last Monday night, the Henry County Ladycats cut their deficit to just three points against the defending 31st District basketball champions Carroll County. Playing on the comforts of their home court, the Ladycats were right where they wanted to be.

    But the 39-36 score was as close as the Cats would get as Carroll's suffocating defense held Henry in check for the rest of the game and its offense used a 13-0 run to pull away to a convincing 52-36 win.

  • Every golfer's dream

    Marty Kaelin of Louisville hit a lifetime shot last Tuesday afternoon at the Henry County Country Club when he aced the No. 2, par-3 hole for his first ever hole-in-one.

    It was the shot of his career for the 81-year-old Kaelin, who plays three days per week at the HCCC, and one he's been waiting a long time for.

    "After 51 years of playing, it was definitely a surprise," Kaelin said an hour after landing the perfect shot.

  • Decking the walls

    General Manager

    The library of New Castle Elementary School was mostly quiet, except for the sound of a brush dab-dab-dabbing at the walls. It was the sound of growth.

    In just a few hours, a large tree grew from floor to ceiling, with branches spread out over the tops of some of the library’s bookshelves.

    Among those branches was a treehouse some of the school’s older students recognized as the Magic Treehouse. Its creator, Pam Morrison, painted the tree in a little less than a day.

  • Vote on drink sales was the right move

    During its business meeting Monday night, the Eminence City Council voted to approve amending its current alcohol ordinance to include liquor by the drink sales.

    We couldn't agree more with that decision.

  • Holiday season for some is a little different

    Growing up Jewish, the holiday season was always a bit different for me.

  • Are our children safe?

    That is the question living on Zelcova Drive in Eminence. With our neighboring subdivision, Arbor View, we have a lot of children who play in this area. Not only do we have children playing but we also have dozens of people who walk the bike trail and this road daily. The speed limit on this road is 15 mph. So why, on an every day basis, do we have dozens of cars speeding well over the speed limit? Do the newly installed stop signs boarding the bike trail and Arbor View help? No, they don't. Everyday I witness several cars blowing the stop signs totally.
