    A major roadway closed for bridge reconstruction could reopen as early as next week.

    Earlier this summer, a portion of U.S. 421/Kentucky 22 was closed so a small bridge over Drennon Creek could be repaired.

  • It’s a ‘mental game’ for EHS

    On the volleyball court, the Eminence Lady Warriors are headed in the right direction compared to where they were last year — the fundamentals have drastically improved, and they have the players to get the job done. But the one area coach Stephanie Meadows is concerned with, she cannot see on the court.

    Through the first two weeks of the season, the Lady Warriors are 1-4 with a win over Evangel Christian and losses to Brown, Gallatin County, Shelby County and Anderson County. The big concern Meadows has is her team’s mentality.

    Friday night’s disappointing 54-24 loss was not the start the Henry County football team was looking for as the Wildcats watched an early lead vanish, gave up 27 points in the second quarter alone and lost all the major statistical categories.

    Holy Cross, a 1A football program that returned most of its key players from last year’s 6-6 squad, spoiled Henry’s opening-game hopes in the Dairy Queen Bowl. It was the first time Henry had lost its opener since 2006 when this year’s seniors were eighth graders.
