  • Kentucky Wounded Heroes thanks Hussey Copper

    To those injured on the battlefield or in the line of duty, Hussey Copper’s recent donation in support of a Kentucky Wounded Heroes bass fishing tournament at Guist Creek Lake means a lot, according to Chuck Reed, the non-profit’s director.
    Several representatives of Kentucky Wounded Heroes visited Hussey Fabricated in Eminence’s industrial park Wednesday to let company officials how important their $1,000 donation is to activities designed to support armed services members with combat injuries and police, fire and EMS personnel with line-of-duty injuries.

  • Football history author will host book signing in Pleasureville June 2

    Michael K. Grimes takes readers back to the “wide-open” early days of football in Central Kentucky in his new book, “Did You Hear About the Game in Pleasureville?”
    It was an era before organized professional football, when teams played in state leagues, and high school teams often played college teams and the rules that govern the game today had not been created.
    A local historian and avid football fan who played the game in high school and college, Grimes, 50, lives in Pleasureville.

  • Fourth of July celebrates freedom, history

    As it has for nearly two-and-a-half centuries, our nation will pause on Monday to celebrate its “birthday,” commemorating a time 240 years ago when the Founding Fathers declared our independence.

    Since July 4, 1776, we have weathered a war for our freedom, a war against ourselves, and wars against those who would like nothing more than to see us and our values falter. Although the world has changed in countless ways since Thomas Jefferson penned the Declaration of Independence, our commitment to protect and promote freedom has never wavered.

  • News, roads agitate my spirit and mind

    This is one of those race-to-the-bottom columns.

    I’ve tried in vain to access my superego countless times during the week with the intention of writing about some uplifting topic.

    A very divided United Kingdom voting to destroy continental unity and scuttle their long relationship with the European Union — what largely seems a system to oversee commerce and to bolster the economy there — makes it seem naive to talk about the evidence I see of an improving economy at home.

  • Reasons to celebrate and be thankful

    Levi Berg will soon celebrate his first anniversary as Henry County Ag Agent!  
    A year ago my article started with this… “We are very happy to be able to announce that the position of Henry County Extension Agent for Agriculture has been filled by Levi Berg, who will start on Aug. 3.”  
    It seems hard to believe that he has already been here for almost a full year, but we hope that he will stay many more.
