  • Budget in the red

    “After eight years in the black, this year, it won’t happen.”

    That was the stern dose of reality Henry County Judge-Executive John Logan Brent delivered to the Henry County Fiscal Court as it gathered April 28 for the first reading of the 2011-2012 budget.

  • They’re about Tractor Day

    According to the 2011 FFA shirts, the Henry County High School FFA is about Tractor Day, muddy trucks and the FFA. And on Thursday, May 5, they showed what they were about in greens, reds and yellows across new and old makes and models of tractors.

    Delayed by a couple of days, the students had crystal clear weather as they made the annual tractor parade from 4 Seasons BP to the parking lot of Henry County High School, where their fellow students waited to cheer them on.

  • Putting the Capstone in food banks

    The goal to provide better nutrition for the most vulnerable segments of the population starts with fresh produce “from apples to zucchini.”

    Capstone Produce Auction owner David Neville also has been looking for a way to help narrow that gap.

  • New Castle to offer free Music and Movie at the historic Locker building

    Two adults and two children squeeze into the family’s gas-saving compact car and head for an evening at the Louisville multiplex theaters nearest to Henry County.

    What will it cost?

    In dollars, roundtrip gas could run about $10 plus at least $32 for movie tickets. Then there’s the popcorn and drinks.  If the grown-ups split a large and the little ones each have their own small (they don’t share quietly) the concession stand collects about $18.

    That adds up to $60... not including sales tax.

  • Hughes, Metcalfe also named Governors Scholars

    Hayden Hughes
    Hayden Hughes is a Henry County High School junior who admits he can’t possibly keep track of all his activities both in and outside of school.

    It took him a few seconds to recall the subjects of two essays he wrote for his application to the Governor’s Scholars program this summer. “I try to get all that stressful stuff out of the way,” he said, “and then forget about it.”

    He and Casey Davis were chosen from this years crop of juniors for the prestigious five-week program.
