• Thanks for cleanup efforts

    On Saturday, Nov. 7, nearly 500 Henry County citizens put on their safety gear and assisted with Henry County’s annual roadside litter clean up. 

    Working under the direction of Henry County Planning and Zoning and Henry County Solid Waste Department, these citizens cleaned 200 miles of Henry County roads. Through the efforts of 34 teams, over 1,200 bags of trash were collected.

  • Not taking donations

    The Henry County Senior Citizens group would like to thank each and every one who has supported us over the years — you all have been fantastic.

    As you know, we no longer ask for donations for the seniors from anyone. So, if someone approaches you for a donation in the name of the senior citizens, please keep in mind they are not a member of our group.

    Thank you and God bless!


  • Let me tell you something...

    Diabetes is not just a problem of the individual.  Diabetes is a problem of the family and society.  Diabetes is not a disease of the weak-willed. It is not a disease just for the obese. No one with diabetes decided to not care about their health. We all care about our health and do the best that we can. 

  • Disappointed with county ambulance charges

    I’ve lived in Eminence most of my life. Work there and play there.  Actually love my small town life.  This past spring I had a heart abnormality that scared the doctors and myself enough that I had to be taken to the hospital from the clinic in Eminence.  

  • Henry County Toy Run 2015

    We are writing to apologize for the error regarding the registration and start times of the Henry County Toy Run this past Saturday. 

    This is the first year that the times were different and, unfortunately, the flyer from our 2014 Toy Run, with only a date change, was submitted to the Henry County Local and sent home with students.

  • Clarifying article

    I saw an article in the Local about the Henry County Help Center and my leaving. This is true but my reason is not because I have family. 

    It is more about heavy lifting — no volunteers that can lift that many heavy boxes — and also it’s about the lack of communication and some things that may need to be changed. 

  • Unhappy with water

    After going almost two months with low water pressure and dirty water, which the city clerk told me the water was safe to drink, how could the water have been safe to drink when the bottom of my dog’s water bowl and my tub was covered with brown stuff?

    Instead of getting a break on the water portion of our bill, our water bill has doubled. We are still using less water, but pay twice as much. I would like an explanation from the city about the increase and why this is happening.

  • Thanks for ag tag support

    Wow!  The news is in!  Ag Tag donations were up 9 percent from last year to 25 percent of all the farm tags renewed in this county.  The Henry County FFA is so thankful for each one of you that made the choice to donate to support your local and state FFA programs in addition to 4-H and Kentucky Proud.  

  • Consider voting Republican

    It was announced last week, that the 4th Congressional District, of which Henry County is a part, has become the first congressional district with a Republican majority.  People are frustrated with the state of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

  • Get out the vote

    Hundreds of thousands of young Americans are serving our military to preserve our way of life, and yet fewer and fewer of our citizens are participating in our democracy. November 3 is general election day when Kentuckians will be selecting candidates for governor, commissioner of agriculture and other constitutional officers. Members of Henry County Farm Bureau hope every voter will make their voices heard by casting informed votes for our government leaders.
