  • HCHS senior projects are worthwhile

    Thank you for your coverage of the Henry County High School Senior project program.

    I was asked to help judge one night of the student presentations. I was impressed by the evidence of hard work by both the teachers involved and the students themselves. The respect the students showed the judges was complete.

    The school system should be applauded for their support of the senior project. I am grateful to have seen a bit of the results and hope more in the community will be so fortunate.

  • I'll leave the grilling to somebody else

    I have a confession to make. I cannot master the grill.

    But I have to start out by saying that, as many people know, I’m a fiercely independent person. I like to learn how to do things, and out of necessity have learned to fix toilets, do minor electrical work, change my own oil and so on.

    But this weekend, I learned one thing that truly stumps me. It must be that I’m just not built to do it.

    Grilling.
