  • 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

  • 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.
