    The rain tried to put a damper on the US Kids World Championships Qualifier held at the Henry County Country Club last Wednesday, but after a three-hour rain delay the 32-person field finally teed off.

    It was the first time the golf course located just north of New Castle landed a Worlds Qualifier event, which attracted golfers aged 5-14 from all across the country. Among the mix were three from Henry County: MacKenzie Peyton, age 12, Isaac Klempner, 7, and Will Peyton, 6.

  • Frazier’s Ballpark

    Jadie Frazier was one of the best athletes to ever come through Henry County. He averaged 32 points per game as a senior at Henry Central High School in 1959; he was a starter and double-digit scorer for the University of Louisville; he competed for the U of L track team; he was a star pitcher in fastpitch softball up until the age of 50; and he was inducted into the Louisville ASA Hall of Fame.

  • Jadie Frazier, one of the great...

    He might not be able to move as fast as he once could — when he had the athletic flair to jump up, spin around and put the ball in the rim in one graceful motion — but his eyes still light up when he remembers his playing days. And when speaking about his family or Frazier’s Field located close to Bardstown Road in Louisville, his eyes light up even more.

  • Stephanie Meadows named new EHS...

    After a string of disappointing seasons, Stephanie Meadows has been hired as the new Eminence High School volleyball coach to help revive the struggling program to where it once was.

    In the fall 2003, while Meadows was a senior, the Lady Warriors finished with an impressive 21-10-2 record and advanced to the 8th Region tournament. In the seasons that followed, they went 18-4-1 in 2004, 13-9-1 in 2005, 0-19 in 2006, 2-19 in 2007 and 1-16 in 2008. It was a two-year decline followed by a big drop off in 2006.
