  • Follow-up to theft

    This is a comment on last week’s, Message to Thieves.

    The roll of wire mesh with straw that was taken (stolen) from the Defoe Cemetery. 

    The roll was returned to a cemetery board member.  The board member says the person who returned it did not do so because he/she read of it in the Local,  maybe his/her conscience got to bothering him/her.  

  • Thumbs up for positive content

    I would like to take a moment to let the staff of the Henry County Local know how much I appreciate their efforts in reporting all the good things going on in our community.  

    I know that whenever I have had an event going on such as Organ Donation Awareness Month or the Relay For Life, the Local has provided ample coverage to help get the information out.  

  • Get out and vote for the 2015 Primary

    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. May 19 is primary 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.

  • Requesting your support

    The Henry County High School Class of 2016 would like to invite you to their Ford Drive 4 UR School fundraiser May 16 at the high school from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  

    There will be vendors of all assortments and food from the Smoke Doctors. This fundraiser is unlike any fundraiser you have probably participated in before because it requires no money and no purchasing of items you will never use.  

  • Message to thieves

    To the thieves who took the roll of wire mesh with straw, used to cover graves when grass seed has been sown, please consider this:  Although you will consider your act as not a major theft, maybe you did it on a dare, maybe you had new grass seed you needed to cover, maybe you took it for the heck of it, but it is of major importance to us the Board of Directors of the Defoe Cemetery.

  • Proposed ordinance presents issues

    I’m not a resident of New Castle and thusly not a constituent of the elected officials, but I feel the need to comment on a recently proposed ordinance.  

  • In support of Grossberg

    On May 19, I will proudly cast my vote for Daniel Grossberg for State Treasurer and so should you.   

    Daniel is a realtor who lives in Jefferson County with his wife Erica.  He is the youngest candidate in this race, which is his most redeeming quality as he brings a set of new ideas and a fresh perspective for this office.  

  • Clerk needs election workers

    The Henry County Clerk’s Office is in need of precinct election workers and alternates for the primary election on Tuesday, May 19, 2015.  

    You must be a registered voter of Henry County and be 18 years of age by Nov. 2, 2015.  

    Please call 845-5705 for more information.

     

    — Shanda Archer, Henry County Clerk

  • Family connection to The Locker

    I can shed some light on the history of The New Castle Implement Company, featured in the Local edition of March 4. The gentleman on the left in the picture, A. Thornton Ellis, is my father, and in the middle is Harvey Stone Ellis, my grandfather. My father’s full name was Anthony Thornton Ellis and I am Anthony Thornton Ellis, Jr. 

  • Road crews did a great job

    I would be remiss if I did not publicly thank the Henry County Road Department, the State Highway Garage and the New Castle Public Works Department for the outstanding job they did keeping our roads clear during the winter weather we have experienced the past three weeks.

    They have worked long hours and probably have received very little thanks for the job they have done.  

    After the last snow we received last week I expected to wake up Thursday morning and not be able to go anywhere.
