  • ‘The Mystery of the Silver Trays’ revealed

    There were four of us. We were boys on a mission of discovery. For more than a year, we had been trying to solve a mystery.
    We were as silent as mice as we hid behind the trees on the west side of the church parking lot.  
    The early dark of the evening aided us in hiding. Any minute we knew we would see them.  
    Jack had seen them go over and had called the rest of us to watch.  
    It was only a matter of time before they came back.
    They never stayed all that long, and they always came back.

  • Taking the pledge to sit less, move more

    Not to be a hypochondriac or anything, but the increased discussion around “the sitting disease” has soaked in. It sounds like something I’ve already caught.

    Folks who read any news at all, like me, have probably been exposed to the growing consensus that inactivity serves as the enemy of good health. 

    Thinking back to this past winter, more than once I used the excuse of the weirdly warm and wet weather as an excuse to beg off on my normal goal of walking at least two miles a day. 

  • Wildcats win three vs. EHS, Lloyd and Valley

    Zack Woods took advantage of his first varsity start at Eminence April 24. The sophomore went the distance in shutting out the Warriors in Henry County’s 14-0 win.

    Woods pitched five innings and gave up only four hits while striking out seven and walking two.

    He got plenty of offensive support as the Wildcats got multi-hit games from Daniel Murray and Justin Edens. Murray had a single, a home run and five RBIs while Edens had a single and a double with one RBI.

  • Golden's walk off leads Lady Cat comeback

    The Henry County Lady Cats needed a seventh inning rally and two extra innings to come out of district seeding play undefeated when they hosted Owen County April 25.

    Senior first baseman Lilly Golden got the game-winning hit in the bottom of the ninth but it took a couple of big defensive plays prior to that hit to keep the Lady Cats alive.

    The Lady Cats struggled at the plate through the first four innings and fell behind 5-0 going into the bottom of the fifth when they finally broke through for a run.

    McCoy Walker led the Wildcats with a first-place finish in the shot put. Walker’s winning throw was 42 feet, eight inches.

  • More warnings about ticks

    I know I have written about this topic before, but I want to touch upon tick protection again. I have already found a few ticks on me and my animals. They are out, and this year’s mild winter could have increased the amount of ticks.
    Just remember, tick season is here, and you need to prepare yourself when outdoors.

  • Six ways to reduce your spring allergy suffering

    Spring is a time for renewal, but if you suffer from seasonal allergies this renewal can make this time of year miserable.
    Hay fever, also called allergic rhinitis, starts with cold-like symptoms. Unlike a cold that goes away in seven to 10 days, an allergic reaction tends to linger until its source is identified and treated or no longer present.
