  • Hope for water’s future rests at HCMS

    Like many of the Henry County Middle School students who walked around the edge of the first lagoon at the Waste Water Treatment Plant in New Castle on Halloween, there are a few things I don’t think I’ll ever forget.

    The tomato plants growing up through the rocks that line the lagoon’s edge is one indelible image.

  • Small businesses are a big deal

    By Lance Minnis

    When I was growing up, we lived in a large old farmhouse with a nice open wrap-around porch.

    Of course, my father would rouse me out of bed early on Saturday, and we would get a good start on some painting project or other. He would often leave me alone to complete it, and then check my work when I was finished.
