  • Biking Henry

    When Greg Woods asked me to go on a 50- to 60-mile bike ride with him and Ricky Drawbaugh last week, I paused and thought about it for a few seconds. I really liked biking, I thought, but I hadn’t been on a ride since April. After taking some time away from biking, I was getting used to not having such a sore butt. Plus, I had to work Friday — the day they decided to go touring the county and for some reason wanted my company.

  • Blackburn leaving Eminence

    After seven seasons as the head man for the Eminence High School boys’ basketball team, filled with some of the best basketball squads the school has produced in recent memory, Keith Blackburn has decided to step down as Eminence’s coach. His decision to back away from the program stemmed from off-court issues that date back the previous three seasons, he said.

  • Zak Yates named 8th Region...

    Through nine seasons, five head coaches and numerous wins and losses, Zak Yates has been the one common denominator on the Henry County High School baseball team for almost a decade. Now, after the best season Henry County has produced during Yates’ tenure, his tireless work is not going unnoticed. Following Henry’s remarkable baseball season, which ended in the championship game of the 8th Region tournament two months ago, Yates was named the 8th Region Assistant Baseball Coach of the Year.
