  • Warriors drop two ‘winnable’ outings

    After opening with just one win through the first eight days of the high school basketball season, coach Chris Nethery said his Eminence squad should have its 1-3 record flip-flopped.

    The Warriors first lost to Montecillo (52-43) on Saturday, Dec. 4, then lost to Evangel Christian (51-49) the following Tuesday. Those two, Nethery said afterward, were very winnable games. Eminence struggled at the free-throw line and around the basket in both outings.

  • EHS girls are 1-3

    It took the Lady Warriors 18 games to get that first win last season, but they won in just their second try this time around when they defeated Evangel Christian, 65-35, last Tuesday night on the road.

    So far this season, the Eminence girls’ basketball team is 1-3 overall with a 52-27 loss to Henry County in the opener on Dec. 3, the win over Evangel, a 68-13 loss to North Oldham on Friday and a 51-21 loss to Kentucky Country Day on Saturday.

  • Cats outscored 27-5 in fourth

    Hanging close to Walton-Verona for three evenly-played quarters, a lid was put on the basket on Saturday night for the visiting Henry County Wildcats as they were outscored 27-5 down the stretch and lost 62-36.


    Their football careers are over playing in an official Henry County High School Friday night game, but they continued for one more outing.

    Representing HCHS in two separate all-star games, Luke Magness, Justin Hartlage and Dylan Doll recently put on their pads for the final time while in high school. Magness and Hartlage played in the Greater Louisville Football Coaches Association East-West all-star game on Sunday, Dec. 5, and Doll played in the inaugural Greater Louisville vs. Kentucky “Best of the Bluegrass” game on Sunday, Dec. 12.

  • There’s nothing like a book in hand

    The story on NPR Tuesday morning left me shaking my head.

    At the heart of the story was the question of whether or not print, specifically in this case the printed book, is dead, and how that will impact book stores large and small, chain or independent.

    Call me a luddite if you wish, but I refuse to believe that the physical book will ever really die.

    Raised in a household of readers, I grew up surrounded by books. A home is not a home for me until the bookshelves are up and laden with books.
