  • Choose wisely

    Ever since the 2008 Kentucky Primaries, I have tried my best to convince the many Hillary supporters that they should vote for Obama in the general election.  Many cite the fact that his age of 47 years is too young to which I usually counter with the fact that Senator John F. Kennedy was 43 years old and Governor Bill Clinton was 46 years old when they became president.  

  • Friends for Michael appreciates help

    I would like to say thank you to Henry County Public Schools and Wehr Construction for their efforts to allow us to continue to have the Friends for Michael 5k run/walk at the high school. Frankly, I would have not been surprised if we had been told to find another place to host it this year because of the construction.

  • Come out and join us for Fall Fling

    The ninth annual New Castle Fall Fling will be held this Saturday, Oct. 4, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It will be located around the historic Henry County Courthouse. East Cross Main Street will be closed starting at 6 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 3, until approximately 6 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 4.

  • Are you ready for election season?

    With just five weeks to go, the 2008 general election is creeping up on us.

    I don’t think anyone really needs me to say just how important this election is.

    As a nation, we’re in a scary place. The financial crisis weighs heavy, or should, on everyone’s mind. Whoever wins in November — for president, Senate or House — will have some serious work to do.

    We have a unique right that, even in this historic year, only about half of all Americans are likely to exercise.

    For the first time in its history, the Henry County Public Schools’ budget will exceed $20 million. But, if the budget remains in its current form, the district could be operating in the red.

    At a special meeting of the Henry County Board of Education on Thursday, Sept. 25, HCPS Superintendent Tim Abrams announced the milestone.

    “Our budget for all funds is over $20 million for the first time,” he said. “It is $20,148,808.”

  • Get moving with Body Recall; program starts Monday

    Mildred Elston, 66, of New Castle just can’t wait to begin her tenth ten-week session of the Body Recall exercise program. What could possibly have her so excited about exercising?

  • County thriller Friday night

    High school football fans around the area will be at Henry County's field this Friday at 7:30 p.m. to watch the Wildcats take on cross-county rivals Eminence in what's shaping into a heated battle- at least they should be. I could give you a long list of reasons why to come out to this game, but it would be much larger than this one column could handle.

  • Friends For Michael 5K Run

    For the 12th straight year, Friends For Michael hosted its annual 5K run, which drew 73 runners and walkers from around the area Saturday morning in the largest road race in Henry County.

  • Ladycats on top for third time this season on soccer field

    In two games last week, the Henry County girls' soccer team looked like a completely different squad with its worst game of the season in a 3-0 loss to Frankfort last Monday and one of its best games of the season in a 1-0 win over Kentucky Country Day two days later.

    The split decisions left the Ladycats with a 3-5-1 record at the midway point of their first-ever varsity season.

  • Ramos leads EHS at Carroll meet

    The Eminence cross-country team continued its season at the Carroll County North Central Kentucky Conference meet last Tuesday afternoon with a full varsity team for the girls and just three varsity runners for the boys.

    The NCKC, which Eminence is not affiliated with but is allowed to run, has numerous weekday meets throughout the season. This one, hosted by Carroll, was held on a tough course located inside General Butler State Park.
