  • Hard work pays off

    I have taken some mostly good natured ribbing from some Henry County sports fans for the amount of coverage I have given to a couple of local golfers over the past few years.

    MacKenzie Peyton and Alex Hadden are names that are familiar to the readers of these pages because of one reason – they succeed at a high level in their sport.

  • Hadden finishes second on Golfweek Junior Tour

    Alex Hadden, a rising freshman at Henry County High School, has been busy working on his golf game since last fall.

    Hadden has played in ten events on the Golfweek Junior Tour since November and after placing fourth in the tour championship at the University Club of Kentucky on May 26, finished the season ranked second in his age division.

    The Golfweek Junior Tour includes players from Michigan, Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio.

    The General Assembly may be at its busiest during the first several months of the year, when the House and Senate are focused on passing new laws, but the summer and fall months are important as well to the legislative process.

  • Come on in, the water's fine (maybe)

    We were at a friend’s house over the weekend for a cookout. It was a beautiful day, although cloudy, but humidity was low and sitting outside was rather comfortable with a strong breeze carrying across the back patio.

    Despite the mild weather, the 3-year-old daughter of other friends who also came to the cookout immediately wanted to get in the above-ground pool just as soon as they arrived. She was warned that it was still early in the season and that it wasn’t a very warm day so the water would be pretty cold.
