  • Bagdad Days to honor war heroes

    I am writing to inform the public of a community event that will honor Kentucky’s Military Heroes. On May 12, Bagdad Days, a community event sponsored by Bagdad Baptist Church, will be celebrating 20 years. 

    As part of this celebration, the community will pay special honor to those Kentucky individuals who have served in military combat for our country. 

  • Resident concerned about accountability in Pleasureville

    Over the past few weeks, letters have been written to the Local about some problems occurring in Pleasureville. I now live in Pleasureville and have attended the past four city commission meetings. I would like to make a few comments on my observations of these meetings and maybe ask a few questions.

  • Gary Moore for Congress

    We hear a lot of rhetoric these days, however we deserve someone with a real vision and a proven record to serve us in the U.S. Congress. Gary Moore is the only candidate in the field with the experienced leadership necessary for real change in Washington.

    Moore’s plan for a balanced budget amendment is a commitment to change the culture in Washington.  While others may agree in theory, Moore is the only candidate with the track record to prove it.

  • Family is thankful for help after loss

    The family of Connie Joelene Landers, who passed away in January at the age of 32, would like to thank the overwhelming support given to them from the community during this difficult time.

  • Thank you to Special Olympics donors for 'Scottie’s Team'

    Many thanks are due to the generous Henry County citizens who donated to the Special Olympics Polar Plunge, Saturday, Feb. 25.

  • Commission member speaks out about recent controversy

    I would like to respond to the recent articles in the Henry County Local as well as the comments to the paper by Verna Stivers and Pam Bramblett.

    Pam had every right to question the issues she brought before the commission. As elected officials we have been given the task of spending the taxpayer money wisely and within the confines of laws and ordinances. I may not agree with the way she presented those questions, but I do agree they needed to be asked.

  • Hanging up their crowns

    This July will be the last year Pam Siebert and I will be directing the pageants at the Henry County Fair. This is after 17 years of crowning Miss Henry County and before that the remaining pageants, and the babies, for probably five years or more. As you can see, we have more than 20 years under our belts as the pageant directors.

  • Tribute for Green is past due

    Does anyone remember Jim Green? Eminence High School Hall of Fame, Kentucky High School Hall of Fame, first black athlete to graduate from the University of Kentucky, internationally recognized athlete.

    I know he put Eminence on the map and probably Henry County also. I can’t think of anyone else in Henry County who has had these kinds of accomplishments.

  • Take the plunge for Special Olympics

    On Saturday, Feb. 25, a team led by Henry County Attorney Virginia Lee Harrod will be taking the Polar Bear Plunge in the Ohio River to support and raise money for the Special Olympics.

    Participants include Henry County legal defense attorneys, judges and troopers and staff of Kentucky State Police, Post 5.

  • Thank you

    Year after year, we are reminded of how blessed we are to be a part of Henry County!  So many people have stepped up to find a way to help their neighbor. To the pastors, church groups, Henry County Public Schools teachers, staff and students, work groups, clubs, families and individuals: Thank you! 

    We thank you for the food and supplies that you have brought in and continue to bring in for our community pantry, the food and helping hands that provide the backpack ministry, and the monetary donations that support these programs and others.
