  • Success at school hinges upon stability at home

    Summer is nearing an end and children all across Kentucky have or soon will be headed back to school. While many students may groan at the thought of homework, tests, book reports and science projects, most are also excited to see old friends and to get a fresh start on a new year.

  • LeCompte’s Bottom Road children deserve bus service

    I read with interest “Families petition for bus service,” that appeared on page one, Aug. 10, 2011, in the Henry County Local. It brought back recollections that my dad and mother worked through to get a school bus for the Smithfield grade school students.

  • Kentucky is a leader in green movement

    When it comes to being “green,” Kentucky is taking a leading role in proving that, environmentally speaking, less is really more.

    Our recycling rate, for example, has doubled over the last decade, and in 2008, we passed the national average for the first time. Now, nearly a third of our recyclable materials – such things as aluminum, plastic, glass and paper – are being re-used rather than shipped off to the landfill. Altogether, it amounts to about two million tons annually that are being saved.

  • In support of Eastern Colts

    As a former HCYFL coach, I appreciate Tommie Kendall’s HCL article last week to raise local awareness of the sudden drop in numbers of our youth football participation, particularly in the Eastern Elementary School District.
    A big factor that always seems to result in low numbers of kids playing for the Eastern Colts is the fact that the district covers such a wide, rural area. Some may feel it’s too much of a drive to get their kids to practice every day or that the cost involved is too much to pay.

  • Another Great Youth Soccer Season

    Our kids just finished another great season in the Henry County Youth Soccer League.  I wanted to take just a minute to thank all of the coaches and volunteers that gave of their time and talents this year.   Between sign-ups, scheduling games and practices, prepping the fields, scheduling refs, and dealing with all of the other little things there is a tremendous amount of work that went into making the soccer season the success that it was.  Your efforts are appreciated!  We look forward to another great season this fall.

  • Just because we can

    Courthouses throughout Kentucky are not plush.  Nor do they need to be.  Some are very lacking in spaciousness.  Traveling to many different ones all over the state during my tenure with Abandoned Mine Lands and Department of Transportation, I had no problem doing my job.
