• CodeRed should be used for city emergencies

    CodeRed should be used for city emergencies

    I’ve been signed up for CodeRed for some time now and, while this service could be very useful, I have to admit that I don’t understand how the city is using it. 

  • Patriotic Festival had community support

    Patriotic Festival had plenty of community support 

    The New Castle Patriotic Festival Committee would like to thank all of the sponsors that helped support the Patriotic Festival on June 13.  

    Without you, the volunteers, county employees and Judge John Logan Brent, City of New Castle employees, and countless others, this event could not have been held. 

  • Company’s annual tradition shows appreciation

    On some anniversaries we celebrate. On others we reflect.


    The fourteenth anniversary of the attack on America and New York’s World Trade Center is one of the times for reflection. There is truly nothing to celebrate in the extraordinary tragedy of 9/11.

    As much as I would like to forget some of them, the images from that day will never be out of my mind, nor will the victims and their families.

  • Watchman party goals

    It’s time to fight back against liberalism, moderate progressive Democrats and Republicans who are being deceived and blinded by Satan. Also, the Republican establishment is starting to be deceived and blinded by Satan.

    Now, not all Republicans are deceived and blinded, and as far as Democrats nationally, they are deceived. I’m talking about those who do state work — governor, congress, judicial, etc. I hadn’t seen local Democrats being deceived yet.

  • Radio station memories

    I found your article on WSTL very interesting and thought you might want another part of the history of the station when it was brought back to life in 1966 by Woody and Helen. 

    They were two dedicated people who loved broadcasting especially, to the local fans in their community of Eminence. I miss both of them dearly. Woody gave me my first break into the business. I am forever grateful to both of them. 

  • Kentucky Storm is brewing in Henry County

    The Kentucky Storm Football Team, LLC, a member of the Kentucky Football League, is playing its first of five home football games at Henry County Recreational and Service Park in New Castle on June 6.

  • 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.
