    Henry County High School senior Mario Gamboa wrapped up his career as a high school football player in November when the Wildcats lost a heartbreaker to Floyd Central in the Class 3A playoffs, but he may continue his athletic career in college like many of his teammates. 

    Gamboa, however, is not pursuing a college football career. The 6’3”, 250-pound former offensive lineman has a good shot at being on the nationally renowned University of Louisville cheerleading squad next year.

  • Wildcats whip Warriors in season opener

    The Henry County Wildcats hosted the Eminence Warriors in the season opener for both teams March 19. The temperature was 60 degrees when the first batter stepped to the plate with a light rain falling. That stood in stark contrast to the rest of the week as a snowstorm and cold temperatures wiped out the week’s scheduled games. 

    Zack Woods started on the mound for the Wildcats and set the Warriors down in order in the top of first inning.

  • Wacky weather plays havoc with spring sports

     It’s officially spring now but somebody forgot to tell Mother Nature. There were 11 softball and baseball games scheduled between the four local high school teams for the opening week of the spring sports season and exactly one was played. That was the season opener between the Henry County and Eminence baseball teams.

    That game ended after five innings and the final inning was played in a rain steady enough to make it sketchy as to whether it could have been finished if the Wildcats had led by less than 10 runs.

  • A look at the most recent dietary guidelines

    Based on the most recent science, the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans were released at the beginning of 2016. Before you say, “here we go again,” let’s take a closer look.
    The guidelines may sound familiar, but there are some differences from years past.
    Overall guidelines For the most part, these guidelines don’t advise you about how much to eat of different foods, such as vegetables or meat.

  • Two more flooring stores expand in Eminence

    H&H Flooring
    The owners of H&H Flooring, the Hannas, have operated their family business in Eminence for five years, while keeping a relatively low profile while they concentrated on work.
    But the owners have invited the community to a grand opening May 12 at 11 a.m. when they christen their new storefront at 128 Eminence Terrace, close to the Henry County Public Library.
    “We’re expanding our existing business,” Tori Hanna, co-owner, said. She hopes to get to know more Henry County residents at the opening.

  • Hot Rods & BBQ opens in C-burg

    Customers at Hot Rods & BBQ in Campbellsburg do a double take when owner Joe Wieland provides the service instead of Ben and Dana Freeman, the former proprietors of Freeman’s Kountry Korner Kafe.
    Wieland owns the business on U.S. 421 as of February and long-time friend Bobby Smith manages the comfort food restaurant and bar.
    But if people want to visit the Freemans, they aren’t far away. On occasion, they will occupy a booth in the eatery, but the Freemans still have plenty of work to do next door at First and Last Liquors.

  • Mystical Feeling

    There’s a mystical feeling when a preacher can connect with the congregation, a feeling Rev. Michael Duncan has experienced many times while in the pulpit at Eminence Baptist Church.
    But after 38 years as the church’s pastor, Duncan will step down April 8. He and wife Donna won’t stray too far as they’ve made Eminence their home.
    Though Duncan had expectations of taking up another pulpit in the past, after their arrival on Nov. 1, 1979, no other congregation could pull him away. Looking back, Duncan’s not certain if he could enjoy a connection with members of another church as he has here.
