  • Memo to ESPN: It's not The Shot, It's the Stomp

     

     

    The college basketball season got under way last week and already the Duke Blue Devils have ruined our victory lap.

  • Can’t we all just get along? Yes!

    Now that the election is over, I feel a void in my life.

    The criticism of another’s position, the constant heated debate between family members filled with a heavy dose of vituperation has since dwindled into anemic soliloquies where no one listens but the speaker.

    Don’t worry I ‘m not going to rant about my political position nor demand any reader to understand what I think sound public policy should look like.

  • Hope for water’s future rests at HCMS

    Like many of the Henry County Middle School students who walked around the edge of the first lagoon at the Waste Water Treatment Plant in New Castle on Halloween, there are a few things I don’t think I’ll ever forget.

    The tomato plants growing up through the rocks that line the lagoon’s edge is one indelible image.

    The veritable sea of white, green, purple, blue and pink plastic tampon applicators, littered along the rocks  is another. In one photograph I took, I counted more than 50. It was a little disturbing and unforgettable.

  • Small businesses are a big deal

    By Lance Minnis

    When I was growing up, we lived in a large old farmhouse with a nice open wrap-around porch.

    I must have painted that house five times as a kid, because the weather boards were so old, paint would no longer stick, and years of accumulated paint would chip off between one summer and the next.

    Of course, my father would rouse me out of bed early on Saturday, and we would get a good start on some painting project or other. He would often leave me alone to complete it, and then check my work when I was finished.

  • Fall doesn’t mean a slow down in county activities

    The Henry County Chamber of Commerce is constantly looking for ways to make our chamber an association that businesses, churches, non-profits and individuals can look to for not just information, but also for support of our communities.
