  • Smith gets 60 days, no animals

    Despite a deal with the Commonwealth’s Attorney, Terri L. Smith will not regain ownership of the two dogs and two horses she’d asked for in exchange for a guilty plea to one count of second-degree cruelty to animals.

    The decision by Henry District Court Judge Diana Wheeler came as part of a more than three-hour long hearing Monday that included emotional testimony from Smith’s friends and family, as well as individuals who fostered some of the animals seized in the December raid.

  • C’Burg is PoweredOff

    Get your stuff and get out.

    That’s the message Campbellsburg Mayor Rex Morgan would like to deliver to PoweredOn owner Brent Graves.

    Campbellsburg hired Graves in 2011 to set up a WiFi network for city residents that would be delivered at no cost to the residents. But, one year later, the network has coverage issues, and Graves did not follow through on a promise he made to the council in March to address the problems.

  • EHS falls to Henry 13-2

    When the Eminence Warriors took the field at Henry County last week, the game started nearly perfect.

    Brandon Mitchell, leading off, hit the game’s first pitch out of the park for a home run. Unfortunately for the Warriors, that was the game’s lone highlight.

    Eminence got two more runners on in the inning but failed to push across another run.

    Austyn Sailings opened the scoring for Henry County in the bottom of the first when he walked to first, stole second, stole third and then advanced home when the throw to third was off the mark.

  • Lady Cats power past Owen, 15-6

    Early in their game against Owen County on April 10, the Henry County Lady Cats found themselves in a hole.

    The Lady Cats scored a run to open the game, but Owen County struck back with five runs in their half of the first inning.

    But the Lady Cats came back, adding two runs each in the second and third innings. The Rebels briefly took the lead again in the bottom of the third inning, but the Lady Cats negated that, scoring 10 more runs the rest of the game, to take the 15-6 win.

  • Eminence digs deep, finds confidence in Gallatin win

    With a 2-5 record, the start of the Eminence Warriors baseball season has been a little lackluster.

    But Warriors’ head coach Mark Payton sees glimmers of hope ahead.

    “I think our pitching and our defense are our strengths right now,” he said. “What needs to improve is our competitiveness and our focus.”

    Against Gallatin County on Thursday, April 12, the Warriors seemed to lose that focus, if just for a moment before going on to win their first Class A tournament game, 8-7.
