  • Fourth graders see wheat from field to table

    Thanks to Robbie and Katie Sue Yount, the fourth graders of Henry County had a unique experience this past Thursday.   For the second year the Younts have welcomed the youth to their farm to see how wheat is grown, cut, harvested, ground and made into bread.

  • National woes a chance to examine family budget

    Recent national and global economic news has been troubling, with significant long-term issues that contribute to financial uncertainty.

    While it’s important to remain aware of these issues, concern is better channeled into productive action on a more personal level, such as examining your family’s budget and making decisions that wisely use money.

    As the nation discusses a long-term spending plan, that conversation provides an important reminder to review household spending.

  • Youth Ag Day steps back in time

    Certainly one of the biggest events in Henry County over the past week was the Antique Farm Machinery Show at Robbie and Katie Sue Yount’s Farm near Bethlehem.  The Friday and Saturday event had plenty of steam engines, antique tractors, horses and farm machinery involved in numerous demonstrations.  A good crowd was on hand to enjoy the great hospitality and opportunity to step ‘back in time’ when farming had a different, maybe more important, connection to the community.

  • More evidence we need the REINS Act

    Traveling through Kentucky’s Fourth District during the August district work period, I have had the chance to speak with a number of small business owners, local bankers, health care providers and farmers who are very concerned about the impact of new regulations on their businesses.  They want to know: what is being done to deal with the unaccountable onslaught of these job-crushing rules?

  • Thanks to you!

    We want to thank the many individuals, organizations, and churches that have made donations of clothes, food, hygiene, school supplies, etc. in the past few months!  We appreciate the churches and individuals so much for all of the time that they volunteered during the Hearts of Grace Clothes Give Away!  Without the many hearts and hands of the community, this event would not have taken place!  You served over 500 people (adults and children) with clothes!

  • More history in Frankfort than can be covered in one trip

    While the classroom experience for Kentucky students invariably changes from decade to decade, there is still one constant that binds one generation to the next: A field trip to the state capital.

    Thousands of children make the trek each year, seeing such common sites as the larger-than-life statue of President Lincoln in the Capitol Rotunda and, just a few miles away, the Old State Capitol’s self-supporting staircase, which for more than 180 years has been anchored by a well-placed keystone.
