  • Six local high school juniors named to Governor’s Scholars Program

    Six local high school juniors have been chosen to participate in this year’s Governor’s Scholars Program (GSP).
    GSP is a summer residential program for outstanding high school students in Kentucky who are rising seniors.
    The program originated in 1983 as a result of Kentucky leaders’ concern that the state’s “best and brightest” were leaving the Commonwealth to pursue educational and career opportunities elsewhere without fully understanding the potential of their talents at home.

  • In honor of John Hoffman

    In honor and in memory of John Hoffman, an outdoors enthusiast, writer and former contributor to the Henry County Local, we’d like to re-run one of his columns, printed in the early fall of 1999. 

    While Hoffman wrote about all things outdoors from hunting and fishing to ammo and gun recommendations, he seemed to have a special affinity for bird hunting and fishing. And he relished sharing his knowledge and experiences with others.
