  • Missing

    Sulphur Christian Church parishioners were shocked and dismayed last Thursday to find out their historic bronze bell had been taken.

    The treasured piece of hometown history was suspended from a custom-made bell tower. It had graced the lawn of the church since 2002.

    Cathy Lawrence said it originally was used at Sulphur’s Fairmont College before Shorty Moody purchased it.

  • Berry is grateful for national award

    For nearly half a century Wendell Berry’s works have conveyed the things about which he is deeply passionate: community, good land stewardship, conservation and farming, and mankind’s relationship to each.

    On March 2, Berry, of Port Royal, received the National Humanities Medal for lifetime achievement for his work.

  • McBurney’s having a Hay Day

    For some time, Chris McBurney has taken part in field days throughout the southern United States.

    Now McBurney, who owns and operators McBurney Livestock Equipment in New Castle, wants to share that concept with local farmers. “There’s not a lot of that going on here,” McBurney said. “Most farm shows are several hours away.”

    With that in mind, he and other local distributors came up with the idea for North Central Kentucky Hay Day.

    It will be held 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday, May 12, at the Henry County Fairgrounds.

    It is always a pleasure to welcome new members to the Chamber.

    Associate Members are those who wish to support the Chamber in their work for Henry County, but they are not a business, but also include churches, civic organizations and charities.  The dues for Associate Members are $50.
