  • To our veterans: Thank you!

    By Jon Park

    Memorial Day is the day we honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Those, who paid for our freedom with their lives. On Veterans Day, we honor those courageous men and women, willing to give all, who have stepped up when called, who have served our nation, protected our freedom, and returned home to their families, as Ronald Reagan said, “Champions of a noble cause.”

  • Reduction of road fatalities remains in our hands

    One of the more persistent challenges facing our country is finding ways to reduce the number of people killed or injured in a traffic accident.

    In one sense, we have come a long way. Four decades ago, for example, the number of highway fatalities regularly topped 50,000 a year, but the figures for 2011 were the lowest the United States has seen since 1949, a testament to tougher laws, safer roads, more focused enforcement and better technology in the cars and trucks we drive.

  • It’s time to ham it up

    It is time to sign up for the Country Ham Project. This project begins when the raw or green hams arrive at the Henry County Cooperative Extension Service office, usually on a Saturday in the middle of January.
    When the hams arrive there are stations set up where youth and adults prepare the hams with a mixture of salt, seasonings and brown sugar. They are then wrapped and hung in the ham house until spring. Around spring break the 4-H member’s hams are cleaned and then rehung to go through the summer sweat.
