  • April is Donate Life Month

    Since April is recognized as Donate Life Month both nationally and here in Kentucky, I feel that this is a good time to thank the many Henry Countians who have supported organ and tissue donation at our drivers license counter by donating $1 in support of our Kentucky Circuit Court Clerks Trust for Life and by placing their name on the new Kentucky Organ Donor Registry.

  • C'Burg to consider annexation

    General Manager

    Campbellsburg may be growing - literally.

    Though the topic has been a matter of speculation among elected officials regarding the city's population, the city's boundaries may expand.

    During the March meeting of the Campbellsburg City Council, Mayor Carl Rucker discussed the possibility of annexing land north of I-71. Initially, Rucker said he would like to go as far north as the Trimble County line, but discussion during the meeting changed that northern boundary to Kentucky 1606.

    Rucker said the council seemed accepting of the idea.

  • The predictable 10 percent

    There is a law of human nature that says at least ten percent of the people in churches, families, clubs, or at work are always "negative" about plans, projects or ideas.

    They are the people who say, "Yeah, he can walk on water but that's because he can't swim."

    Resistance, rumor and ridicule are what they practice.

    But no project or plan, even if it's a positive plan for the children of our community, can be successful if we become distracted by the ten percent.

    Henry County Relay For Life

    Mark your calendars for the following fundraisers all held in an effort to raise money and awareness for the American Cancer Society:

    • Barb's Bud's will sponsor the first ever Henry County Tractor Run on Saturday, April 12. More Details will be announced next week in the Henry County Local.

  • Concerning Bill Covington

    The first sentence in last week's Henry County Local concerning the judgment rendered against Bill Covington implies that he stole from Farmers Deposit Bank. I think most readers will interpret this to mean that he stole money for personal gain, for the benefit of his family or close friends. It is an extremely misleading statement. None, I repeat, none of the charges brought against Bill Covington charges him with the taking of or the manipulation of funds to benefit himself, family or close personal friends.

  • Dads do matter

    Studies show that when fathers actively contribute to the upbringing of their children in a positive and supportive way, the children do better in school, are more confident and have healthier self-esteems. Children and teens who feel secure and comfortable about themselves are less likely to abuse drugs and alcohol or engage in sexual activity before marriage. This affirming encouragement has long lasting effects well into adulthood as children learn to make good decisions for a brighter future.

  • Case examines 2nd amendment rights

    On March 18, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments for District of Columbia v. Heller, a case which questions whether the District of Columbia's gun ban violates the Second Amendment. This is the first Second Amendment case taken up by the Supreme Court since 1939. As you may know, the rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment have been severely limited in the nation's capital for the last thirty-two years.

  • Warriors allow 34 runs in opening two games; score five

    As the stat book shows, it was a tough week for Mark Payton in his first two games as the Eminence baseball team's new head coach.

    The Warriors, who are trying to turn the tables after a combined 5-36 record the previous two seasons, opened the 2008 campaign with a blowout 20-0 loss to Shelby County last Monday, then followed with a 14-5 loss to Spencer County the following night. The rocky start leaves Eminence at 0-2 with Henry County (Thursday), Anderson County (Monday) and Butler County (Tuesday) just over the horizon.

  • Making History

    No team equals no problem for Michael Gregory - it's an equation the Henry County student is all too familiar with.

    Gregory never got the chance to officially play high school soccer during his four years at Henry County High School, which didn't have a team, but will take his soccer skills to the next level at the University of the Cumberlands. When he suits up for the Patriots next fall, he will become the first student from HCHS to play soccer at a college or university.
