  • Car show will also honor Vietnam veterans

     

    The Henry County Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary Unit 155 has been named by the Department of Defense as a partner in commemorating the 50-year anniversary of the Vietnam War (www.Viewnamwar50th.com). 

    DAVA members have organized a Vietnam War Veterans Tribute Truck/Car/ Motorcycle Show for Aug. 12 with activities from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 891 Ballardsville Road. Car show participants will also participate in the Eminence Day parade.

     Objects to testing school clubs for drugs

    First, our government wants to invade our privacy in everything we do. Now, [Eminence Independent Schools Superintendent] Buddy Berry wants to do the same thing in our schools.

    I understand the concept behind drug testing athletes and drivers transporting students in buses, but drug testing students in clubs is going too far. What’s next? Are they going to start coming into our homes?

  • Health care changes could affect families

    The action in Congress to radically reduce Medicaid spending could have huge consequences for families in Henry County, regardless of whether they directly benefit from the program.

  • 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.
