  • Be part of the CURE for bullying

    Bullying has come a very, very long way since my middle school days.

    At that time, it consisted mainly of prank calls, hallway teasing and on one occasion a particularly clever stunt during PE in which one of the boys in my class put a frog in my pocket without me knowing. The ensuing shriek, I have no doubt, was quality entertainment for him.

    The prank calls at home were particularly cruel. The “surprise gifts” in my backpack were quite annoying.

    The hallway gossip was brutal. And this was just seventh grade.

  • Reach out and Read with your doctor’s office

    When your child thinks about the doctor’s office he probably has memories of shots, swabs for strep throat, or being given yucky tasting medications.

  • Sheriff, fiscal court at odds on budget

    Henry County Sheriff Danny Cravens doesn’t want to cut law enforcement services for residents of Henry County, but he fears budget cuts from Fiscal Court may cause him to do just that.

    Shayna Jeffries couldn’t imagine not living on a farm.

  • The haunted tale of Cave Springs

    The quiet hills and hollers between Gest and Lockport hide their past easily to the casual passerby.

    During the fall as Halloween nears, the old wives tales and family folklore lend themselves to the macabre of hallows’ eve where fact and fiction blur peaking our fascination, imagination and delight of fear. The tale of Cave Springs is one such story passed on by the Craigmyle family near the sight of a presumed haunted history.
