  • Cats outrun Rebels

    The Henry County Wildcats’ defense and special teams shone Friday night as they rolled 41-7 over the Owen County Rebels, in a game that was even more one-sided than the score indicates.

    The Cats had scored all 41 of their points by the six-minute mark in the second quarter. A running clock and generous substitutions by the Wildcats’ coaching staff meant that the Rebels would get their only touchdown in the rest of the game.

    After three years with no tax increase, the Eminence City Council voted Monday night to increase real estate property taxes.

    Under the new rates, a homeowner will pay $8 more for a home valued at $100,000.

    During the public hearing on tax rates Wednesday, Sept. 4, Mayor Drane Stephens asked council members if they had any thoughts or concerns about the proposed tax increase while the council waited for potential resident attendees. Council member Danny Meadows said he had received numerous calls from residents on fixed incomes and voiced his concerns.
