  • National woes a chance to examine family budget

    Recent national and global economic news has been troubling, with significant long-term issues that contribute to financial uncertainty.

    While it’s important to remain aware of these issues, concern is better channeled into productive action on a more personal level, such as examining your family’s budget and making decisions that wisely use money.

    As the nation discusses a long-term spending plan, that conversation provides an important reminder to review household spending.

  • Youth Ag Day steps back in time

    Certainly one of the biggest events in Henry County over the past week was the Antique Farm Machinery Show at Robbie and Katie Sue Yount’s Farm near Bethlehem.  The Friday and Saturday event had plenty of steam engines, antique tractors, horses and farm machinery involved in numerous demonstrations.  A good crowd was on hand to enjoy the great hospitality and opportunity to step ‘back in time’ when farming had a different, maybe more important, connection to the community.

  • Henry County 4-H’ers go to the Kentucky State Fair

    This past week has been a busy one for Henry County 4-H’ers at the Kentucky State Fair.  Before the fair officially opened the Kentucky 4-H Dog Show was held on Aug. 13 and 14. 

    On Saturday, Kellyn Smith and her dog Lincoln participated in the costume category.  They were dressed as a young Mary Todd Lincoln and of course Lincoln the dog (a poodle) was portraying President Lincoln.  They were both excited to receive a 2nd place award.
