    Martha Tarry Simpson has been selected as a Senior Star by the University of Kentucky Sanders-Brown Center on Aging. Simpson will be honored at an Oct. 13 luncheon in Lexington.  Throughout her life, Simpson brought arts and refinement to the children of Henry County and Eminence as a public school teacher.

  • 4-H gearing up for new school year

    This month I will be visiting all of the fourth and fifth grades in the county telling students about the 4-H program in Henry County.  For those of you who may not be aware of the program I thought I would share a little about it.
    The 4-H Club has been going strong for more than 100 years throughout the country.  We are part of the Henry County Cooperative Extension program that serves as a branch of the College of Agriculture at the University of Kentucky.

  • 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.
