  • Local business hosts night at the ballgame
  • 9/11 - One day with lots of meaning

    On Sunday morning, our nation will pause to remember and reflect upon the tragedy known primarily by its date: 9/11.

    Those of us old enough to remember that Tuesday in 2001 will never forget where we were and what we were doing when we heard the news.  It had the same impact as such other pivotal moments in history, from the attack on Pearl Harbor and President Kennedy’s assassination to Neil Armstrong’s walking on the moon.

  • More on the ballot than the presidential race

    In the current political climate, apathy is a common response. 

    Given the top two choices for the person who will be tasked with leading this country and the controversies surrounding each, many have declared they are simply opting out and will choose not to vote for either.

    Apathy is not the solution. And not voting is a cowardly way to equip yourself with the best excuse ever to denigrate the effectiveness of whomever is chosen.

    When HCHS freshman golfer Alex Hadden teed off at about 1:30 Saturday in the Henry County Invitational golf tournament, he probably couldn’t have dreamed that he would not know the final outcome of his round until dusk. But that is what happened when he and South Oldham’s Cooper Gray battled through six playoff holes before Hadden finally won with a par on the 24th hole of the day for both players.

    Hadden and Gray both finished regulation with a one-under par 71 before their epic playoff battle.
