  • Taylor Made act of kindness

    Shayn Straughn, a freshman at Henry County High School, was the recipient of a random act of kindness a couple of weeks ago.

    Straughn was on the Henry County golf team this past fall and has only been playing for a couple of years. Shayn describes his game as ‘a work in progress.’

    Like many young aspiring golfers, Straughn’s equipment was of the hand-me-down variety. You might describe his equipment as well worn if you want to be kind.

  • There is good in the world



    On Monday, April 15 I got a text in the midst of trying to write what felt like dozens of reports on baseball, softball and track. I was also distracted by the events in Boston like everyone else in the country that day.

    The text was from a former colleague. It said, “I may have a pretty good human interest story for you if you get the time to call this week.”

    The Henry County Wildcats capitalized on errors in a doubleheader with Gallatin County, winning both games Saturday.

    After a scoreless first inning the Wildcats broke out for four runs in the second inning.

    Coach Jon Kasten described the final tense moments:

    The senior signed his letter of intent last week.

    Magness saw the atmosphere surrounding the team as a big reason for selecting the school in northern Kentucky.

    “I like the atmosphere a lot,” he said. “I like how excited the coaches get when you make good plays. I like how close the coaches are to the players and how the coaches join in with the players when the players are doing something.”

    But the Warriors were undone by defensive mistakes and timely hitting by the Rebels, who scored seven runs in the third and seven more in the fourth inning.
