    General Manager

    After months of tension and dissent in Campbellsburg City Government, Graham Whatley will no longer serve as the city’s attorney.

    In a special meeting Monday night, Mayor Jan Fletcher introduced New Castle-based attorney Bill Brammell, and recommended the council approve a contract for Brammell’s services.

    Fletcher said he’d “been talking with (Brammell) the last couple of weeks,” and that he would like Brammell to replace Whatley.

  • Cats drop district opener

    In what was the District Four opener for Henry County’s football team, the Wildcats lost to visiting North Oldham on Friday night, 24-9.

    Playing against former coach Billy Martin, the Wildcats finished with three interceptions, two fumbles and gave the ball to North on downs at the tail end of another drive in a game the Cats could never get going.

  • Thanks for help with Fall Fling

    I would like to thank everyone who recently came out to the 11th Annual New Castle Fall Fling on Saturday, Oct. 2.  It was a tremendous success.

    I would like to thank everyone who brought their cars, trucks, and tractors to our car show.  It was enjoyed by everyone.  I want to thank the many vendors who came and set up all around the Courthouse. Thank you’s also go out to our entertainment of LA Entertainment, Six Miles South, and TumbleTime.

  • Trick or treat!

    Residents throughout the county will open their doors to boys and ghouls for trick or treat this weekend.

    Official trick-or-treat in all Henry County cities will take place from 6 to 8 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 30.

    At the same time, Pleasureville Baptist Church will host its annual Trunk-or-Treat event in the church parking lot from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Besides treats, there will be hot dogs and drinks and entertainment for the little ones.

  • The whole community needs to be served by the health department

    October is National Breast Awareness Month. Now is the time for flu immunizations. Has there been anything published to educate the community regarding both events? Seems our tax dollars should be utilized by the local health departments for just this purpose.

  • Excercise your right, do your duty

    Alright, Henry County, it’s time. Tuesday morning at 6 a.m., the doors open for you to exercise your right to vote.

    It’s a right we have that many in this world do not. Too few of us exercise it. Residents in some countries risk life and limb to cast their first votes.

    It’s right we are so often told, albeit via political rhetoric, that men and women in uniform died to protect. A right they’ve died to give to others.
