  • Out of my face, and shopping cart

    Stock up on your favorite junk food now, folks, because it looks like the federal government is going to be messing with our food supply a whole lot more if regulators at the FDA have their way.  Plans are underway to mandate restrictions on salt. The government – that fine institution that exists ostensibly to protect our rights and property in this land of the free – is planning soon to dictate how much salt will be legally permissible in prepared foods at grocery stores and restaurants.

    The Henry County softball team went 1-2 last week, and Matt Wright said he was pleased with all three outings, which left his team at 14-5 overall with the postseason one month away.

    While the season reached the midway point, the Ladycats lost to Grant County (3-0) last Tuesday night, and beat Trimble County (10-0) on Wednesday and Walton-Verona (8-3) on Thursday.

  • Empower the people to create jobs

    April 15 marked Tax Day, a painful reminder of just how much money the government takes from our paychecks every year. As Kentuckians filed their taxes, sending their hard-earned dollars to the federal treasury, many question what Congress is doing with their money.

    Over the last two years, Congress has given Americans a series of bailouts, a failed stimulus package and a government takeover of healthcare, costing roughly $1 trillion each.

    Staff writer/photographer

    For the fourth district magisterial seat, a first term incumbent will face off against a former member of the New Castle City Commission.

    District 4 Magistrate candidate Tammy Sharp, 43, juggles family, work and civic duty.

    She is married and has two biological children, but also is raising two nieces and in the process of adopting a nephew.

    Sharp believes a different perspective would be an asset as a new magistrate.

    Staff writer/photographer

    New Castle Christian Church’s new pastor Tommy Lanham is accustomed to living in a small town.

    He grew up in a little place called Keavy in Laurel County, but Lanham and his family most recently lived in Nicholasville.

    “If you live more than 15 miles from Keavy, you’ve never heard of it,” he said.

    Lanham and his wife, Tammy, have two children — Appolonya, 6, and Dylan, 3.

  • I sure do miss the rivalry

    I was ready for this one.

    I had my schedule all planned out: a pre-game story on the upcoming Henry County-Eminence baseball showdown to increase the hype in this week’s issue, followed by in-depth coverage complete with plenty of pictures next week. I even highlighted the game in the Spring Sports Preview released last month as a must-see game.

    April 28 was a day I had circled, but I was wrong.
