  • By-the-drink vote in NE New Castle

    In three weeks, voters in the Northeast New Castle precinct will decide whether or not Henry County Country Club will be able to sell alcohol by the drink.

    The special election will be held Tuesday, June 21, and will involve only that precinct in which the country club is located.

    Henry County Clerk Juanita Lashley said the question voters will answer is “Are you in favor of the sale of alcoholic beverages by the drink at the Henry County Recreational Corporation (AKA Henry County Country Club) in the Northeast New Castle Precinct D102?”

  • Taking the bugs out of summer

    Spring is here, and Memorial Day weekend is right around the corner.  Our family loves the warmer weather and the chance to camp, go to the lake and spend time outdoors. 

    As much as I love spending time outdoors, I have to remind myself to take precautions so pesky mosquitoes and other summer pests don’t ruin the weekend.  The mosquito population is sure to be especially plentiful and buzzing this year with all of the recent flooding and remaining pools of water.
