    William Mason is living history.

    The 90-year-old Eminence native not only lived through the nation's Civil Rights movement, he helped define the battle for equality that still continues today.

    Most days, you can find him delivering meals to the county's elderly homebound residents. The short man shuffles from door-to-door, his jeans deliberately triple-rolled to just above his shoes.

    When the top swimmers at the KHSAA Region 3 Championships lined up for the finals Saturday afternoon, a Henry County High School swimmer was taking her mark for the first time.

    In a game of back-and-forth, up-and-down runs, the host Henry County Ladycats held off Kentucky Country Day Friday night in a two-point thriller, 37-35.

    The see-saw contest went back and forth until Henry went ahead for good with 16 seconds left off a Jessica Booher three-pointer. The Ladycats, who showed signs of breaking open the game before allowing KCD back into the contest several times, made their final move with 30 seconds remaining, which was enough to earn their fifth win of the season.

  • One Giant(s) loss for me

    When the clock finally ticked down to zero and the New York Giants celebrated one of the greatest upsets in all of sports against the New England Patriots, I was left more confused than I was during many of my college exams a few years back.

    Who? What? When? Where? Why? How?
