  • 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. He has clocked the fastest 40-yard dash time any linebacker ever has at Union. And Daniel Moody, a 2006 graduate of Henry County High school, is preparing for his final go around as a Bulldog.

  • Lyndon Johnson takes over program

    It’s been a hectic two weeks for the Henry County High School football program, but a new head coach has been named.

    Assistant coach Lyndon Johnson was bumped up to the head position on Monday morning, ending the speculation over who would be in charge after Ray Graham decided to leave the program on June 28. The team starts practice this Thursday.

  • 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.

  • Karie Powell returns to East-...

    Making her second consecutive trip to the University of Kentucky alongside the best softball players in the state, Karie Powell represented Henry County High School in the 14th annual East-West All-Star Series on June 19-20.

  • Back in the loop

    Vacations sure are tons of fun — my trip to Clearwater during the last few weeks was no exception as I rate it near the top of all my vacations — but it sure is tough getting back in the groove. I apologize up front if my work is a reflection of this. The first few days back after an enjoyable vacation could be the toughest, especially with all that has happened that has made me feel a bit out of the loop.

  • Williams starts a track series

    In an attempt to help revive track and field in the area, Henry County High School head track coach Sedrick Williams will host the Henry County Summer Track Series starting next Tuesday night and lasting through August.

    The Summer Series includes eight straight weeks of Tuesday night meets, open to all ages. The final meet is scheduled for August 31.
