  • New legislation to help Kentucky’s hungry families

    As the economic recession persists and unemployment rates continue to rise, families in the Commonwealth and across America are facing serious hardships stemming from loss of income, foreclosure and unmanageable debt.  As a result, many have been forced to turn to food banks, pantries, and other charitable organizations for assistance.  

  • Help needed for Veterans Day assembly

    I hate asking anyone for anything — especially donations. But we have an idea for this year’s Veterans Day Assembly at the high school, and Junior ROTC can’t go it alone — we just don’t have the money.  Please read this letter and let us know if you can help make a veteran’s experience even more rewarding this year.

    A New Castle man is dead after the motorcycle he was riding was struck by a suspected drunk driver.

    The official start to winter is about 14 weeks away, but one local agency wants residents to think ahead for the frigid temperatures.

    The Tri-County Community Action Agency encourages Henry County residents to apply for a federally-funded weatherization program.

  • Lightning cancels boys’ soccer game at the half

    Trailing 3-1 at the half, Henry County’s hopes of winning its first boys’ soccer game of the season were dashed away when the contest against Gallatin County was called off due to lightning spotted in the area.

    Henry was hoping to win its first game of 2009 against a squad that played junior varsity last year and moved up to varsity this fall, but was denied due to a poor showing in the first half and the weather. The game will either go in the record books as a no-contest or a 3-1 win for Gallatin.

  • Loss will help EHS squad, coach says

    The Eminence volleyball squad was at home for the first time this season last Monday night, but there was a tough team standing on the other side of the court.

    Bullitt Central started out strong, continued to apply the pressure and left Eminence with a convincing 2-0 win in the best-of-three series. The Lady Cougars, led by a strong hitting attack, are definitely the best team Eminence has seen so far, head coach Stephanie Meadows said afterwards. She hopes it will improve her team’s play against other opponents.

  • A life recalled through a garage sale

    Yesterday was gorgeous — sunny and pleasantly cool — the kind of day that evokes a good mood. As I headed toward Louisville to do some errands, I saw a sign for a garage sale next to a driveway beside a lawn overflowing with boxes and tables strewn with books, pots, pans, dishes — all manner of household items and personal belongings. I will admit it. I love garage sales, although I don’t seek them out. I prefer simply to stop when I happen upon one during my various trips.

  • Program’s going the right way

    Don’t let the scoreboard fool you, the Henry County girls’ soccer team is pointed in the right direction.

  • Reader agrees with Norm

    I agree with Norm’s ad in the Henry County Local. Shame on you. Do you know Bill Covington? Have you ever interviewed him? How much research did you do on that abysmal article? I’ve been around here since 1962, so I knew and did business with Bill Covington at Farmer’s Deposit Bank from the time Chuck Keiser retired. I could tell you stories of good deeds that Bill did for people in Henry County through the bank. And he’ll be an asset to the school system.
