  • Welcome new members; DQ is business of the month

    It is always a pleasure to welcome new members to the Chamber.
    This week we introduce Wanda Thurman, one of the hardest workers and supporters of New Castle, as an Associate Member and Goodwill Industries who do so much good work with our youth in their Kentuckiana Works program with Paula Ratliff.

    Associate Members are those who wish to support the Chamber in their work for Henry County, but they are not a business, but also include churches, civic organizations and charities.  The dues for Associate Members are $50.

  • Cell phone users should take it outside

    Let me say first (to paraphrase the ultimate authority) “let she who is without sin cast the first iPhone.”

    So, in the interest of full disclosure I’ll admit I have forgotten to turn off my cell phone in public venues. I’ve been embarrassed a few times when the strains of “Incense and Peppermints” emit from my handbag.

    But, it was an oversight.

  • Exploring different kinds of power

    This month during 4-H, school clubs students in the fourth and fifth grades have been designing balloon racers.  The activity is from the SET project books, which stands for Science, Engineering and Technology.  The idea behind the activity is to get students to explore different sources that could be used for power.  There was a discussion about using solar energy, electricity from wind turbines, electricity and batteries to help offset the use of gasoline in hybrid cars, and air fans that move fan boats across the water.

  • Millions have it and don’t know it

    In observance of Diabetes Alert Day (March 22), the National Diabetes Education Program and the Henry County Extension Service are encouraging people to take NDEP’s diabetes risk test at: ndep.nih.gov/resources/ResourceDetail.aspx?ResId=252 to find out if you are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.

    Nearly 26 million Americans have diabetes. It is estimated that nearly one-third of people with diabetes do not know they have the disease. An estimated 79 million adults are estimated to have pre-diabetes, placing them at increased risk for developing the disease.
