  • Campaign season starts in full swing

    By Jon Park

    There is no doubt the campaign season is under way in Henry County.

    Back in November, the Henry County Local ran two stories on page one regarding the Henry County Sheriff. One on a “contentious” meeting regarding the sheriff’s budget, and the second regarding a questionable audit from the state auditor’s office. Interestingly, the similarly minor dings the Democrat-led judge-executive’s office received in the June 2012 audit were not reported.

  • Cold weather spurs retirement plans

    I don’t always act my age, but this recent cold snap sure has me feeling my age.

    I have been reluctantly edging closer and closer to middle age, much to my chagrin. Proof of that is beginning to be irrefutable.

    It is too loud.

    I would really like for you to go back inside and put on some decent clothes, young lady.

    I have no desire to see your underwear. Please pull up your pants.

    When leaving the house for any reason, I have an overwhelming urge to get home before dark.

    Marvin Whitesides doesn’t know anything, but food.

    Staring at a Belvedere in a dealer window, certain he had to have it, his father told him he could have the car, but he would have to get a job to pay for it.

    At 16 years old, Whitesides went into the food industry to pay back his loan to his father. He had no intentions of aspiring as a restaurateur, but 34 years later he can’t imagine doing anything else.
