    After a wild offseason, Henry County’s football program is putting together the pieces with Lyndon Johnson in charge.

The fundraiser, which includes three bands, will start at 7 p.m. and last until midnight. Ticket prices are $5 each bought in advance or $7 on the day of the concert. All proceeds will go toward the football program.

  • What are you doing to beat the heat?

    Hooboy has it been hot lately. Sure, July and August are supposed to be scorchers, but we’re approaching 50 days so far this summer that have charted 90-degree days or higher.

    No doubt ice cream sales are up right now, as are electric bills as we struggle to stay cool. Box fans, stand fans and oscillating fans probably are working overtime.
