  • Protecting yourself from scam artists

    While we were lucky this time, many Kentuckians have lost a lot as a result of the March 2 tornadoes. As those hit the hardest begin to piece together their lives and rebuild, they should be on the lookout for those who may want to prey on their misfortune. Many times, after an area has been hit by a natural disaster, it will see an influx of scam artists and fly-by-night contractors, so take heed and keep these pointers in mind in case we are ever hit again.

  • A Capitol experience for Henry County 4-H

    The Henry County group attended several committee meetings where bills were reviewed and voted on by committee members. One of particular interest was on banning public smoking in restaurants across the state. 

  • Neighbors: What makes 'em good?

    Neighbors! We all have them. Whether five miles away or 20 feet away, we are all connected to our neighbors in some way. Neighbors, like friends and family, are part of our daily lives. There isn’t any escaping them. They are always there, close by.

    So why am I writing about neighbors? Am I bragging or complaining?  I would like to be modest and say neither, but that wouldn’t be exactly true. Being honest with myself, I would say I am in a state of amazement when it comes to my neighbors, both past and present.
