  • Grief is painful but must be experienced

    Most of us know about “good grief” from Charles Schultz’s Peanuts cartoon. “Good grief, Charlie Brown.” More often than not, the comment was aimed at poor Charlie Brown’s ineptness. Perhaps we’ve all said it to someone... or perhaps said it to ourselves.

    In reality, can grief ever be good? It is a painful experience and a wrenching emotion. We experience it in the death of a loved one, in the death of a pet, in the loss of job or a dream, and in a myriad of other life experiences.

  • How the joes can compete with the pros

    I wrote a story about the Henry County Commerce Park and economic development a few issues ago.

    Budget restraints continuously challenge small towns and stand as one of the greater hurdles on the development obstacle course. I heard from many sources that a small budget limited the county, the towns and more widely local merchants from drawing business here.

  • Lose the macho on Father’s Day

    By Joe Yates

    Even at dusk it was still a bit muggy, and when you looked way down Main Street toward the old school, the air above the pavement shimmered.

  • Lady Cats' win over Carroll tops highlights

    Though the baseball, softball and track seasons are now over, there were highlights aplenty.

    1.  The Henry County Lady Cats defeated the Carroll County Panthers in the district tournament to qualify for the regional tournament.

    The Lady Cats had only three seniors on this year’s team and no juniors but showed that they will be a force to be reckoned with in the future as they knocked the cover off the ball most of the season. The team had an up and down season that included a lot of good hitting and fielding miscues.
