  • To clarify offerings

    The Kentucky Coalition for Healthy Communities does not offer educational classes, but the health department has that responsibility. KCHC is a group of community members and stakeholders from many entities coming together. I do not work for them, but I am a community organizer for North Central District Health Department and Institute for Sustainable Health and Optimal Aging. 

  • Club with rich history of service dissolves

    Our Campbellsburg Woman’s Club was founded in 1906 and federated by the Kentucky Women’s Club in 1908. The club was founded by Mrs. J.T Jefferies, and its first president was Mrs. Noble Humston. 

    The objective of this organization was friendship, culture, social services and the promotion of better conditions in the community.

    One of the club’s first projects was the establishment of a town library in 1908. Though it had a happy beginning, the project has come to a sad end.   

  • Candidate clarifies

    My name is Doreen S. Goodwin and I am running to keep my position as family court judge for Oldham, Henry and Trimble counties. 

  • Thanks for support

    I would like to take this opportunity to say thanks to each and every one who helped make the Odd Fellows parade a success. 

    To those who loaned us their vehicles, their wagon and their time to come out and participate, we say thank you. To the fire departments, sheriff’s office, Henry County band, we so much appreciate all you do. 

  • Has SNAP changed?

    On Aug. 29, I was in line at [a local convenience store] in Eminence and I was shocked at what I saw. 

    The lady in front of me bought 12, 16-ounce beers and a pack of cigarettes and nothing else with her SNAP card. They took her card and okayed the purchase. 

    So, now the government supports your alcohol and tobacco habit? This costs our taxpayers untold amounts of money in health care and alcohol-related care and deaths.

  • National POW/MIA Recognition Day is Sept. 16

    The United States’ National POW/MIA Recognition Day is observed across the nation on the third Friday of September each year. Many Americans take the time to remember those who were prisoners of war (POW) and those who are missing in action (MIA), as well as their families. Let us pray that we never forget those who have never returned home to their families.

  • Upset with officiating

    Although Henry County [Middle School] played a great game against the Oldham County Colonels on Aug. 25, the officials on the other hand did not.  

    There was a sideline injury of a player on the Oldham team. The coach asked the officials to throw a flag so they could tend to the child but they continued the game. The child laid on the ground being tended to by parents of the players.  

    This is unacceptable behavior by anyone, let alone an official.

  • To promote better awareness

    Sept. 26 is Mesothelioma Awareness Day in Kentucky and the nation. The Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation selected this date and encourages Congress, states and cities to acknowledge it. We cooperate with the Meso Foundation in memory of our younger son, Todd Hall (1967-2006), who was a victim of this rare and deadly cancer caused by asbestos exposure.

  • Disappointed with picnic pricing

    My family and I rode over to New Castle [for the Homecoming] picnic Saturday evening, as we have for years, because both of my grandfathers were Odd Fellows. We were charged $20 for four adults, which would have been fine, but it was 9:35 p.m.

    My mom, who is in her 80s, just wanted to ride through. We tried to explain that to Mr. R. Smith, but he insisted on our money at the gate. We weren’t going to be there no time, and it was pouring down like crazy. It never did let up.

  • Credit for hard work

    Hats off to Deborah Fisher — she’s been a busy lady lately. First off, she had an idea to honor the Odd Fellows for their 144 years of service with a float in the annual New Castle Homecoming  parade. But she was also on the committee for the Friday evening block party, before the homecoming parade. She decided to get all the little children that wanted to ride on the float, that she was going to organize and let them wear costumes around a big birthday cake.
