  • 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.

  • Planning for growth is the right thing to do

    The availability of a public library is essential to any civilized society.  The quality and use of that library is very telling about the nature of the people in that society.  Henry County has much to be proud of in this regard.  Not only do we have a library that provides a multitude of services; but our residents are in ever increasing numbers taking advantage of those services.

  • Thank you for help with Living Nativity

    The Bethlehem Living Nativity Committee would like to thank everyone who had a part in making this year’s portrayal of the birth of Jesus Christ another success. It takes many wonderful people to help each year and I can tell you from experience all receive a true blessing from it.

    As one commented; if you don’t believe in the real meaning of Christmas, just come to Bethlehem and watch the many people that come each year to see, to listen to the music, and remember this blessed event.

    May God bless each of you.
