  • 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. 

  • Part 2: Are you ready?

    As I wrote in “Prepare for judgment,” there is more that you need to know.

    In the Bible, it mentions in Ezekiel, Chapter 38 and 39, Iran which was called Persia back then, and Russia, the far northern country, are acting up.

    I believe one day they will come together and attack the rest of the world, after the Rapture happens and the people who are left will do bad deeds and fight a small nation called Israel.

  • Well deserved

    I personally want to thank Debbie Hartford for everything she has done for my son down through the years. If I could have been at the assembly I would have thanked her in person. Our kids are in such good hands at our school with so many dedicated faculty. That’s why our school doesn’t take a backseat to anyone. Go Warriors!

  • The end of Harvest Showcase?

    The end of Harvest Showcase?

    For 15 years a small but dedicated group of Henry County citizens brought to life Kentucky’s largest all local agricultural festival right here in your own backyard.  The Henry County Harvest Showcase, held yearly on the last Saturday in July at the fairgrounds in New Castle is currently being planned for the16th year.  But, here’s the truth: it is not going to happen without your help.

  • The price of politics

    Recently many of Kentucky’s newspapers contained a letter from AT&T’s Kentucky President, Hood Harris, promoting legislation, specifically House Bill 152 and Senate Bill 3. What Mr. Harris’s letter did not tell you is that in 2014 alone AT&T donated over $34,000, in an effort to promote these bills, to campaign funds for members of Kentucky’s General Assembly. 

  • Dinner out to support our students
  • Love yourself, enroll in healthcare

    Ah, poor February, the shortest month of the year and the only month that is extended by one day every four years and that still leaves it a day short of all its eleven brethren. 

  • Glad city history is appreciated

    I was very pleased with Chris Brooke’s column about the Mesker storefronts in New Castle that appeared in the last issue of the Local.

    Speaking on behalf of many others, it is heartening to know that someone relatively new to the area “feels good about working in a community in which much history has been kept intact.”
