  • Military sacrifices

    My grandson was deployed recently, and I couldn’t be there to see him off. My heart longed to support him and my daughter, his mother, but circumstances beyond my control wouldn’t allow it.

  • Seeking help with Eminence Oddfellows Lodge

    The Independent Order of Oddfellows Grand Lodge of Kentucky is interested in revitalizing the Oddfellows lodge in Eminence. We would hope there would be some interest from the residents of Henry County in helping to reestablish the lodge and seeing some of the projects that have been happening over the years maybe start to reappear.

  • Retirees need to speak up

    There has been a great deal of conversation in the press lately about public pensions — and there should be. It is a critical issue facing our commonwealth, possibly the most critical issue for at least the next decade.  The question of “How did we get here?” has shifted to the more important one of “How do we fix this?”  

  • Thanks for support

    I would like to thank everyone for their support of the Henry County Memorial Day Program. This is a very special time when we gather to honor Henry County’s fallen soldiers. Without the assistance of many this program would not be possible. 

    I would like to especially thank the “Henry County Local,” Eminence Christian Church, Prewitt’s Funeral Home and all those who participated. 

  • Leave baby deer alone

    Every year people find baby fawns in their yards, parks and cemeteries. So far this week the Oldham County Animal Shelter has received three calls about fawns being abandoned. We’re such close neighbors, I know this is a problem in Henry as well as Oldham.

  • Veterans fishing trip

    The Robley Rex VA Medical Center in Louisville teamed up with Henry County local veteran volunteers on May 20, Armed Forces Day, to establish the first Veterans’ Fish Outing held at Lake Jericho. 

    VA Director Martin Traxler brought veterans from Louisville to participate in a fishing trip that would allow them to temporarily escape to the country for a little rest and relaxation.

  • Help prevent dog bites for postal carriers

    In April, the United States Postal Service promoted National Dog Bite Prevention Week. I am writing to ask our customers to extend their efforts and help make this “National Dog Bite Prevention Year.”

  • Workers' rights still need protection

    This Mother’s Day is a reminder that our Commonwealth needs strong measures to support pregnant workers.

    All too often, pregnant workers are pushed out of their jobs because our current laws don’t explicitly guarantee reasonable accommodations for pregnancy and childbirth. The Kentucky Pregnant Workers’ Act would enshrine important protections into our law.

  • Join efforts to honor Henry County's fallen soldiers

    A countywide Memorial Day Service will be held at the Eminence Christian Church on Monday, May 29, beginning at 11 a.m. 

    The Henry County Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary is presenting this program in remembrance of Henry County’s fallen soldiers. We hope you will join us in honoring our neighbors who gave all in the service of our country.
