  • Eminence is a wonderful, caring community

    I would like to give a shout out for

     this wonderful community of Eminence.

    Our son Briar Rucker, 4 years old, was diagnosed with a rare brain cyst in August 2011.

    In January, he had a surgery which was unsuccessful. He will have a second surgery in a couple of weeks. This community has come to pray for our family as well as helped us through donations.

  • Circuit Court Clerk supports Lyle

    When I started with the Henry County Circuit Clerk’s office in 1982, things were a lot different than they are today.

    We issued driver’s licenses with a typewriter and a Polaroid camera. Now, all licenses are issued through a web-based system that does it all. From doing a national driving record check on each person, to presenting the license with the person’s information encoded on the back.

    At that time, we also issued boat licenses and maintained all court records for Circuit and District with a typewriter and copy machine.

  • Come home to the Henry County GOP

  • Meet Gary Moore

    There will be a fundraiser for Gary Moore who is running for 4th District Congressional seat. The event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday, April 14, at New Castle Elementary School. This will be a great opportunity to meet the candidate and to talk to him about your concerns and where he stands on important issues that effect our county, state and federal   governments. There will be food and drinks available. We look forward to meeting each and every one of you.

  • 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.
