  • 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.

  • Hats off to local school board members

    The five board members of the Eminence Independent and the five board members of the Henry County Board of Education oversee large budgets and make decisions on the upkeep, renovation and additions of school district building projects.

    But they also make certain the individual child in the Henry County or Eminence Independent district gets what he or she needs to successfully learn in school and beyond. All that is done in the face of shrinking state and federal dollars for education, and tough economic times locally.

  • Gunnell’s Letter to the editor also misleading

    “The news articles in the Dec. 21, 2011, Henry County Local concerning the need for a new Henry County Library was totally misleading” (Wayne Gunnell, Jan. 4 issue).

    The article was not completely misleading, it was written from the point of view of a person who was not there. Should there have been a HC Local representative in attendance? Yes. But they were not, and that is not something that can be changed now.

  • Do we really need a new library?

    I was so glad to read Wayne Gunnell’s letter in the Local last week. I agree with everything he said. I wish I had attended the Library meeting on Nov. 3, 2011, but as usual I thought my opinion won’t matter and didn’t go.

    But I just keep thinking with the bad economy we don’t need a new library or to build anything right now.

    The Library Board said they need more space, more parking spaces, more computers, more, more, more.

  • Thank you

    How many times in our lives are there people who are in our community that do something special for us and we never take the time to thank them properly?

  • Library article was misleading

    The news article in the Dec. 21, 2011, Henry County Local concerning the need for a new Henry County Library was totally misleading. Here is the other side of the story that I observed as a citizen during the Nov, 3, 2011, Henry County Library meeting. Note: There was not a Henry County Local reporter in attendance during this meeting.

  • Thank you for Christmas in New Castle help

    The recent Christmas in New Castle was a huge success. We had the biggest crowd ever. I want to start out by thanking everyone who came out to support Christmas in New Castle.
