  • Henry County is home to many helpers

    In my career as a reporter/editor, I tend to learn things organically, by visiting with people in the community and hearing their points of view.

    After all, no person can know everything. Going to the sources, to the experts, and getting to benefit from the knowledge they’ve accumulated over the years can open a person’s eyes in short order.

    The Water Ski championships consisted of competition in three events: slalom, tricks and jumping.

    On Friday a Junior Development Clinic was held to kick off the weekend. Members of the Kentucky Water Ski Federation helped kids as young as nine years old to sharpen their skills in the different disciplines.

  • Good Day turns into misadventure

    Boy, do I have it tough. Last week was a very busy week of ‘work’ for me. On Thursday and Friday I had to trek out to Lake Jericho to do some fact finding about that ‘hidden gem.’

    While there I suffered through unseasonably mild weather with low humidity and a steady breeze. I had to talk to all these nice people who were thrilled to be outdoors enjoying some wholesome fun.

    While there gathering information, I ran into my neighbors Henry and Michelle Mills who volunteered to take me out on the lake for some better pictures.

  • Henry County U8 All-stars
  • Dragons win Championship
  • Support the local economy with the Henry County Farmers Market

    Have you seen those bumper stickers that say, “I farm. You eat.”?

    I started seeing them several years ago and thought it sounded like farmers were being a bit egotistical or self-important. But that was before I tried my hand at it.

    Before I stopped working full-time about six years ago, I was an avid and loyal customer of the Henry County Farmers Market. Working as many hours as I did prohibited me from having my own garden, but I desperately wanted fresh local produce in the summer, especially garden-grown tomatoes.
