  • Best ways to maintain your spraying equipment

    A few weeks ago, I mentioned weed pressures and thoughts in weed management.
    This week, I wanted to touch on sprayer maintenance and the fact every sprayer needs to be checked before spraying.
    It will ensure that your spray equipment is ready for the planting season, and save you time and money down the road.
    Taking care of sprayer maintenance prior to the hectic growing season can prevent time-consuming equipment breakdowns, higher chemical costs, reduced pesticide effectiveness and potential crop damage.

  • Make sure your Easter egg hunt doesn’t go awry by using these tips

    With Easter upon us, many of us will be coloring, decorating and hunting eggs.
    If you plan to eat those eggs, remember these tips to keep yourself and your loved ones from developing a food-borne illness.
    • Make sure you use only food-grade dyes for coloring.
    It’s safe to use commercial egg dyes, liquid food coloring or fruit-drink powders.
    • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water before and after handling raw eggs or cooked eggs.
    • Do not keep eggs out of the refrigerator for hunting or decorating longer than two hours.

  • Reckoning with Addiction: Pain and the way we hurt by John Inscore Essick

    Recently I spoke with Drs. Donna and Damon Gatewood about pain and how opioid abuse is changing the way they practice medicine.
    They are both family doctors who see patients of all ages (Donna in Crestwood and Damon in Campbellsburg) and regularly provide medication-assisted treatment of opioid addiction at a clinic in Louisville.
    The Gatewoods routinely see patients who are seeking relief from acute and/or chronic pain.
    Acute pain is the body’s signal that we need immediate medical attention for a broken bone or kidney stone. In time, acute pain will go away.

    Henry County High School senior Mario Gamboa wrapped up his career as a high school football player in November when the Wildcats lost a heartbreaker to Floyd Central in the Class 3A playoffs, but he may continue his athletic career in college like many of his teammates. 

    Gamboa, however, is not pursuing a college football career. The 6’3”, 250-pound former offensive lineman has a good shot at being on the nationally renowned University of Louisville cheerleading squad next year.

  • Wildcats whip Warriors in season opener

     sports@hclocal.com

    The Henry County Wildcats hosted the Eminence Warriors in the season opener for both teams March 19. The temperature was 60 degrees when the first batter stepped to the plate with a light rain falling. That stood in stark contrast to the rest of the week as a snowstorm and cold temperatures wiped out the week’s scheduled games. 

    Zack Woods started on the mound for the Wildcats and set the Warriors down in order in the top of first inning.

  • Wacky weather plays havoc with spring sports

     It’s officially spring now but somebody forgot to tell Mother Nature. There were 11 softball and baseball games scheduled between the four local high school teams for the opening week of the spring sports season and exactly one was played. That was the season opener between the Henry County and Eminence baseball teams.

    That game ended after five innings and the final inning was played in a rain steady enough to make it sketchy as to whether it could have been finished if the Wildcats had led by less than 10 runs.
