  • How can you reduce global warming?

    Here lately everyone has been talking about Global Warming. A lot of celebrities come out and say we all need to do our part. So how can you do your part to help global warming? You can start by eating less meat. Yes, it's true. This works by reducing the amount of livestock that then decreases the amount of methane flatulence from the animals.

    General Manager

    As the Kentucky General Assembly looks to get control of a projected state budget shortfall of nearly $400 million over the next two years, local officials are preparing for the impact that shortfall will mean in Henry County.

    Henry County Judge-Executive John Logan Brent said the overall impact for Henry County likely would be small. But community projects might be the first to go.

    General Manager

    To say Pleasureville resident Darrell Burke is fascinated by trains might just be an understatement.

    If you tune in to watch American Idol tonight, you'll catch a glimpse of Henry County. But you can't skip the commercials, or you'll miss it.

    The United States Marine Corps will debut its new advertising campaign during the two-hour show. In October, the USMC Silent Drill Platoon and the production company "Tight" spent about half a day in Henry County in October filming portions of the commercial.

  • Former mayor, commissioner urges participation in program

    As a former New Castle Mayor and Commission member, I would like to take this opportunity to urge the present Commission to continue its participation in the Main Street Program. I feel that the small fraction of the city budget set aside for this commitment to our future is a small price for the benefits that the City has received and will continue to receive from this program.

  • Saving energy saves money

    As a concerned teen, saving energy is very important to do. I read about a very simple way to save energy. It barely takes any time at all and can even save people money.

    Saving energy is a very important thing in our society today. Doing this is extremely simple. If you turn off a fluorescent light for five seconds you save more energy than is required to turn on the light. If you leave the light off for five to 15 minutes you might even save money.
