    Staff writer/photographer

    Henry County residents will open their front doors to little boys and ghouls for treats (no tricks) on Halloween night this year.

    All of Henry County including Campbellsburg, Eminence, New Castle, Pleasureville and Smithfield’s trick-or-treating hours are Friday, Oct. 31, from 6 until 8 p.m.

    Henry County residents looking for something to do beyond trick-or-treating may want to check out another close-by option.

  • Frankfort Perspective with Rick Rand

    If voter registration and a recent statewide poll are any indication, the upcoming election is one of the most anticipated in years in Kentucky.

    According to the Secretary of State’s office, there are a record 2.9 million voters registered to vote on Nov. 4th, an increase of nearly 50,000 from the May primary.  In 2004, the last presidential election year, 2.79 million Kentuckians were registered.

  • Candidate asks for your votes

    My name is Rochelle ‘Shelley” Summerlin.  I am a candidate for Eminence City Council.

    When I filed my candidacy papers, there was a question that asked, ‘How do you want your name to appear on the ballot.”  I wrote ‘Shelley’ Summerlin, which is the name on my cards and signs.  However, imagine my surprise when I saw the name on the ballot was Rochelle Summerlin.  I would like the voters to know that Rochelle and Shelley are the same person.

    I also want the voters to know why I am running.

  • Support Manda Gingrich

    Is there someone from Eminence who is running for president? You would think so with all this negative talk that’s going on. All this negative talk seems to be aimed at one certain person. Yet this person is the only one that I’ve talked to or heard say anything about what they will do if elected.

  • 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).

  • C’Burg sewer in limbo

    General Manager

    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.

    More than a century after his death, a former Henry County resident will be honored with a military headstone.

    Joseph Hawkins Fitzgerald, a founding member of Drennon Springs Baptist Church will be honored this weekend at another Baptist church in Dearborn County, Indiana where he is buried.

    More than 150 years after his death in 1854, a military headstone will be erected at Fitzgerald’s grave.
