  • Track Cats run inside

    The Henry County track team competed in the KTCCCA Indoor meet at Mason County High School on Saturday.

    “Cole Nelson and Cathryn Fischer qualified for the Eastern Relays with their performances in the long jump as did Sara Finley,” Coach Sed Williams said. “It’s a good start to the season, especially since I’m not focused on jumps, throws and times at this point.

    “We have tons more work to do but we are definitely moving in the right direction.”

  • Cats roll over Williamstown Demons


    Amongst the pageantry and celebration that is homecoming there still was a game to be played.

    The Henry County Wildcats came into the homecoming game off of a tough week of games and were facing the Williamstown Demons (2-17).

  • Cats drop one to Mustangs


    In a rematch of the semi-final game of the Henry County Invitational Tournament, Henry County traveled to North Oldham to take on the Mustangs.

    In December, North beat the Wildcats by 29 points.  This time the Cats were hoping for a different outcome.

    Henry County started off working the basketball inside and out, and taking a 13-9 lead into the second quarter. In the second quarter, the Mustangs came out behind some hot shooting by University of Louisville signee David Levitch. North Oldham outscored Henry 22-6 in the second period.

  • Change equals frustrating growing pains

    The saying goes a little like this: Change is inevitable.

    Earlier this month, we had a big, big change: Landmark Webpress — the plant that printed our paper for almost 30 years — closed. That meant we would print at a new location.

    As with all transitions, there have been some growing pains.

    The paper looked a little off the first week at our new plant, but we think we’ve gotten a pretty good handle on that one.

    But the other issues have been more difficult.

  • Pepe le Pew’s in the mood for love

    On a long drive this past Sunday, I saw a fresh dead skunk on the road every few miles.  It sure looked like a bad night for skunks since all of them had been hit by cars.  What’s going on? 

    The short answer:  Breeding season.  Breeding season usually starts in late January.    Males can travel up to four or five miles a night, but are reluctant to flee when endangered, so they just get hammered on the roadways.  

  • Preparing for tax season is half the battle

    Now is the time when we start thinking about filing our income taxes from the previous year.  Even though it’s an annual event, it can cause anxiety for many. By preparing now, you can ease the process for yourself and your tax preparer.
