  • Tuesday morning snow brings ‘Every bit of 6 inches’

    While county roadways were mostly clear of drivers Tuesday morning, snow plow and salt crews were out in force — including Henry County Judge-Executive John Logan Brent.

    Working one of the county’s salt trucks, affectionately nicknamed the ‘salt shaker,’ Brent said the county already had received “every bit of the six inches” forecast.

    By midmorning, the snow was falling so hard and fast that roads that already had been plowed didn’t look it.

  • 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.
