  • Get the freshest produce at the Farmer’s Market

    Fresh Kentucky salad greens are delightful at the start of the spring garden season! Whether you choose to grow your own in a patio container or backyard garden or purchase from your favorite farmer’s market vendor, delicious salad greens make a refreshing and nutritious statement for spring family meals.

  • Time to make hay

    Last spring started a good year for grazing cattle which was halted in this region by a July and August drought.

    However, the fall was wet enough to bring back the fall pasture and hay fields, and this past winter was especially mild. Here is hoping that we have another good season with no droughts or blizzards. In farming, just as in most other endeavors in life, we can hope for the best but should be prepared for the worst.

  • Best friends Payton, Sailings heading to Asbury

    Surrounded by friends and family, Henry County High School seniors Jared Payton and Austyn Sailings signed with Asbury University Monday afternoon.
    After signing, Sailings joked that he was following Payton to the small Wilmore-based University.

    But the joke was only partially tongue-in-cheek. Payton and Sailings have been friends “practically since birth,” an observer noted.

    Payton said he chose Asbury in part because the small school felt like a good fit, and that he would fit in well there.

  • Comeback Cats take NCKC

    The Henry County Wildcats last week won the NCKC tournament, largely on come-from-behind wins, to continue a hot streak that began April 27.

    Since that game — a 5-4 win over Grant County that, technically, began on March 19 — the Cats have won eight of their last nine games.

    The lone loss in that streak came on Monday last week in a 4-1 loss. The week was capped with a 8-5 win over Trimble County to take the NCKC crown.

    After comeback wins against Walton-Verona and Owen County, the Cats squared off against the Raiders of Trimble County.

  • Track Cats to send two to state meet

    When the dust settled from last week’s regional track meets, three Henry County Wildcats earned their way into the state meet.

    The Cats hosted the Region 3 Class AA meet last week on their newly refurbished track. The region is a tough one, with teams from North Oldham, South Oldham and Collins, each of which had a strong showing. Top finishers qualified for the state meet, which will be Saturday, May 18, at the University of Louisville track.

  • Lady Cats on a late season run, win 3 of last 4 games

    Heading down the home stretch of the softball season, the Henry County Lady Cats wrapped up a 3-1 week with a dominant win over Simon Kenton.
    Saturday, the Lady Cats hosted a round robin competition.

    Henry County opened the day with a tight 5-4 win over Grant County.

    The game was close throughout, but the Cats nearly gave it away in the top of the seventh when Grant County scored two unearned runs to take a 4-2 lead. The Lady Cats came back to rally for three runs in the bottom of the seventh to snatch the victory.
