  • Putting the Capstone in food banks

    The goal to provide better nutrition for the most vulnerable segments of the population starts with fresh produce “from apples to zucchini.”

    So says Tamara Sandberg, executive director of the Kentucky Association of Food Banks.

    Capstone Produce Auction owner David Neville also has been looking for a way to help narrow that gap.

  • New Castle to offer free Music and Movie at the historic Locker building

    Two adults and two children squeeze into the family’s gas-saving compact car and head for an evening at the Louisville multiplex theaters nearest to Henry County.

    What will it cost?

    In dollars, roundtrip gas could run about $10 plus at least $32 for movie tickets. Then there’s the popcorn and drinks.  If the grown-ups split a large and the little ones each have their own small (they don’t share quietly) the concession stand collects about $18.

    That adds up to $60... not including sales tax.

    Hayden Hughes is a Henry County High School junior who admits he can’t possibly keep track of all his activities both in and outside of school.

    It took him a few seconds to recall the subjects of two essays he wrote for his application to the Governor’s Scholars program this summer. “I try to get all that stressful stuff out of the way,” he said, “and then forget about it.”

    He and Casey Davis were chosen from this years crop of juniors for the prestigious five-week program.

  • Impressive wins for Cats!

    Austin Hunsaker told his Henry County baseball players a few weeks ago that they had two choices, and that the fate of the season came down to what they chose — either continue to play poorly, like they were at the time, or play baseball the way they’re capable of to turn the ship around.

    They chose the latter.
