  • Cats pull away down the stretch

    On a night when the two in-county high schools pushed and shoved for those bragging rights, the Henry County boys’ basketball team used its depth to pull away from Eminence in the closing quarter on Monday, winning 52-36.

  • Moving on to another decade

    Oh, how I’ll miss the the first decade of the 2000s — I don’t want it to end. Simply put, it was the best.

    There were so many life-altering events for me during the last 10 years that I’m sure many of my best memories will come from this time. It might not be the best chapter when my book is finally written, but it will most likely be a memorable one. I’m actually a little sad moving on.
