  • Looking for courageous leaders to set the right tone

    Rep. Rick Rand (D-Bedford) told a story last Saturday during the Henry County town hall meeting that stuck with me.
    Rand explained that when he was first elected to the Kentucky legislature, he asked a mentor how to know when he was doing the right thing for his district. The advisor answered, “You already know what’s right. You just need the courage to do it.”

  • In tribute to Noel’s community leadership

    During my time as the Henry County 4-H agent, I have had the privilege of working with many fine volunteer leaders.
