  • Stillwater Lake Club at the top...

    With impressive results at the Kentucky State Water Ski Championships on July 10-11 in Walton, Eminence’s Stillwater Lake Water Ski Club has moved to the front of membership and tournament placements within the state, Stillwater Lake owner and skier Leon Leonard said.

    Competing against the best water skiers in Kentucky 10 days ago, the nine athletes from the Stillwater Lake Club came back with nine state titles and two state records during the two-day event.

    Shirts are displayed in the windows and a sneak peek inside reveals what the store has to offer. All American Sports officially opened last February and is ready for business with the inside stocked with equipment and printed shirts. 

  • Ironman is finally a go

    Ever since I watched an Ironaman race on TV as a wide-eyed youngster searching for my next big adventure, I have been waiting for the day to attempt the grueling event that combines a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and 26.2-mile run. Now that I’m officially training for the Aug. 29 Ford Ironman Louisville, that day is inching closer.

  • Opening day this Thursday

    Just as a heat wave sweeps across the area, the highly-awaited July 15 date is arriving.

    Teams across Kentucky will be eligible to start practices for fall varsity sports starting this Thursday, including the two high schools in the county. Between Henry County and Eminence, there are 10 separate varsity sports in the fall. Eminence starts school on Aug. 2 and Henry starts on Aug. 11. Uncertain futures loom ahead.

  • Final season at Union College

    He has survived four grueling football seasons at Union College, including a red-shirted freshman year. He has worked himself into the starting rotation.

  • Lyndon Johnson takes over program

  • Connor Jeffries to Hanover...

    Connor Jeffries has chosen the Hanover College Panthers.

    After deliberating between a few colleges to continue his basketball career, the 6-foot-2 guard who graduated from Henry County High School last month picked Hanover College over Spalding University, Depauw University and Kentucky Christian University. He will be playing at the next level for the 2010-2011 school year, a dream come true.

  • Cats without a head football...

    In a twist of events that has left Henry County High School searching for a new football coach, Ray Graham unexpectedly decided to leave the squad just 17 days before practice starts.

    It has been a roller-coaster like offseason for the Wildcats. Chris Engstrand resigned as the head coach on Jan. 11, Graham was hired on Feb. 12, and he resigned on June 28 — before ever taking to the field in an official game. The Wildcats are scheduled to start practice on July 15, and at this point they have nobody in charge.
