  • Cold hard facts

    Editor’s note:
    The following submission was written in response to a letter to the editor from Jim Guthrie that appeared in the Sept. 24 edition of the newspaper. On the deficit question, a Google search can find sources that attribute different numbers to different presidents.
    For example, an article on about.com, http://useconomy.about.com/od/usdebtanddeficit/p/US-Debt-by-President.htm, says that President Barack Obama added $6.1 trillion whereas President George W. Bush added $5.8 trillion.

  • Diabetes an epidemic

    Diabetes an epidemic
    I have followed much of the political talk and the needs for Henry County because I am a community-minded person and desire that we elect the best for all positions.   
    One thing that has not been mentioned is that we need a healthy community, which produces a healthier population.  Our rate of chronic disease in Henry County is far above the national level.

     Another choice

    We have three banks, two fast food outlets, three gas stations, two liquor stores, two dollar stores, two pizza stores and one grocery store. I would like [to point out to] the city council and mayor, after all these years of talking about economic growth, we still only have one choice of where to buy our groceries! We need “another choice.”

     Ag Tag Money and Blue Corduroy

    There are masses of memories in Henry County that come from citizens’ time in the FFA. Many of those memories date back to one point…the first time you ever zip up the iconic blue corduroy jacket. 

  • Deputy’s salary questioned

     I would like to let the people of Henry County know about a recent change that has been made at the Henry County Sheriff’s office. 

    It appears that Sheriff Danny Cravens has changed his son’s hourly pay scale as a part-time deputy sheriff from $12.98 per hour to $25.31 per hour. No other employee at the Henry County Sheriff’s office received a pay increase when Deputy Cravens was changed.

  • Reader questions timing of project

     

    It’s amazing how things get done when it’s time to get re-elected. For years, a ballfield has sat empty, with just a backstop in place.

    It seemed to me that nobody cared whether or not it got any use for the kids in this county.
