  • Enough is Enough

    I am truly enjoying the Henry County Local articles and letters to the editor regarding the campaign for the open city council seats in Eminence.  I am amused by the outrage and indignation being expressed by the currently seated council members, the supporters of the currently seated members, and a few “very” concerned citizens; in regard to one “very outspoken” candidate (who shall remain nameless).

    After considerable discussion about the city’s sewer system, two members of the Campbellsburg City Council will serve on a committee to take part in meetings about work on the city’s sewer project.

    The move comes after the council learned in September that the system would need still more work before Carrollton Utilities would agree to take over the sewer system completely.

  • Soccer teams here to stay

    There were highs and lows. There were victories. Losses. Speed bumps. High-fiving moments. Injuries. Celebrations. Road blocks.

    But along the way, regardless of what the scoreboard said, these players continued to make history and continued to pave the way for future soccer teams at Henry County High School. And when it was all said and done last week, they were just happy that they got the chance to play.

  • Oh so close

    General Manager

    Each year when Commonwealth Accountability Testing Results are released, New Castle Elementary School Principal Barbara James compares her school to others.

    “I look at La Grange Elementary, because their demographics are similar,” she said, noting that the scores tend to run close to one another. “They have a whole lot more staff, smaller class size — a 15-to-1 student to teacher ratio — an assistant principal and full time counselor.”
