  • Plant sale could grow a greenhouse

    Selling a bumper crop of tomatoes, peppers and flowers would help the Henry County High School agriculture class grow its greenhouse program, teacher Lindsey Davie said.

  • Evaluation is part of defense

    In a rather unusual move, defense attorney Alan Zaring has asked the Henry County Circuit Court to order the victim in an alleged rape to be evaluated by a medical expert to see if she is fit to testify in her own case and on her own behalf.

  • History in the making

    The fact that New Castle has preserved much of its downtown commercial buildings qualifies it for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places, according to a nomination submitted by the Kentucky Heritage Council to the federal government.
    Community members and city leaders have long maintained the well-preserved commercial district that grew up around the courthouse, which gives New Castle a unique identity. The community can capitalize on this rare, virtually-intact 19th century commercial district and use it to help guide the city’s future, they believe.
