  • Be mindful of your eating habits

    One of the most common New Year’s resolutions we make is to lose weight. Eating the correct portions of nutritious foods and engaging in physical activity are two keys to successful weight loss. One way that may help you keep your portions under control is to be mindful of what you eat.

    Mindful eating means you eat slowly and enjoy your food with all your senses. When you are more mindful of what you eat, you may become more aware of when you become full, which prevents overeating.

    Fire department officials from each county station met with magistrates Saturday in an effort to strategize a way to increase deed feeds and maintain compliance with safety regulations.

    “I guess from my point of view we need more money,” said Scott Bates, magistrate for District 1. “I honestly don’t know how we can sell a tax increase during these tough times. Everyone is scraping by.”

  • Airbag deploys in parked van

    “I don’t think I had even one foot down on the driveway,” Lanham said. “I was in the process of getting out of the van and had my back to the passenger side when I heard the explosion. I actually looked to the front of the van to see what happened. Then I noticed the air bag on the passenger side had gone off.”

  • Wildcats slip past Centurions

    Against one of the best teams they’ve faced this season, the Henry County Wildcats put together a complete game, and came away with a 4-point win.

    The Christian Academy of Louisville Centurions were coming off of a 4-point loss to St. Xavier, the 14th ranked team in the first Litkenhous rankings of the season.

    Strong inside play from towers Austin Young and Derek Jeffries, along with strong floor games from the Cats’ guards, allowed the team to take control in the third quarter, and hold off the Centurions.
