    Democratic gubernatorial candidate Steve Beshear carried Henry County by almost a 2-1 margin over Republican incumbent Ernie Fletcher Tuesday, with 2,746 votes to Fletcher's 1,633. Turnout in Henry County for Tuesday's election was just 42 percent.

  • Youngsters showing their stuff

    I don't want to get too far ahead of myself - I have a problem doing that at times - but thinking about the future Henry County High School and Eminence High School football teams make me grin a bit.

    And if you're a fan of either squad, it should make you smile, too.

    With a 7-3 record and a regular-season District Four title behind them, and a Class 3A state playoff game on their home field this Friday night, the Henry County Wildcats are on a upswing. But, according to junior varsity coach Lyndon Johnson, that swing will only get higher.

  • Warriors hope to contain speedy Panthers in playoffs

    Sports editor

    Eminence's football team hung with Frankfort High School through two quarters on Oct. 19, trailing the highly-ranked Panthers just 7-0 at the break. But Frankfort, who was ranked second among Class A teams at the time, scored 30 points during the second half, allowed Eminence to squeak into the end zone just once, and pulled away to a convincing 37-8 win.

    Now, three weeks later, the teams will be squaring off once again, this time in the opening round of the Class A Football State Tournament. Game time is set for 7:30 p.m. Friday night on Frankfort's home turf.

  • 'Now I know war'

    Staff Writer and Photographer

    Matthew Martin lived his early life not knowing war. Born in 1921, and raised in rural Kentucky, the concept seemed distant.

    "I was completely apart from war," he said. "I knew all about The Depression, but not war."

    December 7, 1941, changed everything. Martin recalls the day clearly.

  • Lions and bears and ... hot dogs? Oh my!

    I now can say I've been through my first Trick or Treat with the Henry County Local.

    And I can honestly say it was some of the most fun I've ever had on Halloween.

    It was, for the most part, non-stop action, but a hoot nonetheless.

    We saw plenty of lions, a few bears, but not many tigers. We saw lots of lady bugs, several Hannah Montannas, and more than a few zombies. We even had a couple of kangaroos hopping around our office. We only had one banana and a couple of doctors.
