  • Price picks Pikeville

    Chris Price had a never-ending list of colleges to decide between, but in the end went with an in-state NAIA program that was one of the final schools to join his list.

    Price narrowed his choices down to 10, visited six and eventually pared it down to Pikeville College or the University of Tennessee at Martin. He made his decision with a verbal commitment on Feb. 3 and made it official with a signing at Henry County High School on Feb. 10, the first day of college football’s national signing period.

  • Chamber to give awards at March meeting
  • Good people

    For the past 18 months I believe most will agree that times have been tough, everything from bills, to job security, or just trying to keep their heads above water. Throughout all the day-to-day struggles one thing stands out to me more than anything. We have some really great people in our community, people who volunteer their time to our children. People who spend hours on end to ensure our children are given the opportunity to be a part of something good. People who care and put forth a lot of time and energy to see that our children are able to be involved with positive good clean fun.

  • Thanks for a job well done

    I believe that when someone does a good job they should be recognized for it. We have lived on New Cut Road for 16 years now and when we got any type of significant snow we were all just stranded. Mr. Payton would get out his tractor and plow the road using his own time and certainly his own expense (Thanks Mr. Payton), and it was like that for many, many years.  We all just planned on either staying at home and owning a four-wheel drive vehicle was a must.

    Library lovers can demonstrate their affection this month by writing their sentiments on pink paper hearts at the Henry County Public Library.

    Schweiss said the library belongs to the people of Henry County now more than ever.
