  • 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.

  • HCYS is a positive experience

  • Open Letter to Jason Ritchie

    We give our heart and souls to the kids of this county. We all donate all of our time to making the soccer league even possible.  It is a tremendous value for your and my kids to have a sport they can participate in for only $50 and get a season, referees, trophy, uniform and a season ending bash.

  • Support the Pancreatic Cancer Research & Education Act

    Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all the cancers tracked by the American Cancer Society and the National Cancer Institute that still has a five-year survival rate in the single digits — six percent. There are no early detection tools and no effective treatments. Despite these facts, the federal government has no long-term comprehensive research strategy to combat pancreatic cancer.

  • Thanks for help with Fifth Grade graduation

    The 5th grade class at Eastern Elementary would like to thank the following businesses for all the donations which made their graduation caps and party a success.  Monetary donations and/or gifts were given by Affordable Signs and Apparel, All-American Sports, Choctaw Jim’s, John Shuck, State Farm, Thompson Electric, Three D Electric, and Brownings. Great food or gift certificates were given by Dairy Queen, Norm’s, Snappy, Hometown, Chat-n-Nibble and various parents. This would not have been a success without these people.

  • Frustrated with HCYS

    I can’t help from being let down once again by the Henry County Youth Soccer. Another season of refs not being on time or knowing all the rules of the game. Many games our coach or a parent had to ref a game. Last week our game was scheduled for 10 a.m. The ref shows up and the game started at 10:16. The game was over by 10:47, with halftime included in this 31 minute span. I played soccer for about 18 years and I know that Henry County is still somewhat new to the game, but it can be run a lot better. I know I’m not the only parent that is throwing a gripe about this.

  • With regard to “Judges: New Space is Needed”

    I am very sympathetic to our Judges, and court workers, in their desire for a new court house. These officials work very hard and operate in less than ideal conditions. They make a good case for improved working conditions and, of course, everyone would like a new office. Unfortunately for these hard-working people, money is the issue. Yes, the money is coming from another government entity but we all pay for everything government does.

  • Alcohol by the drink sales would drive economic development in Henry County

    Henry County Fiscal Court is in pursuit of Economic Development for job creation and economic growth. Proper economic development requires good planning and community involvement to allow growth which is desired by its citizens.

  • Vote no on by the drink

    Vote no to the by-the-drink for the Henry County Recreational Corporation.  This is not the place for alcohol by the drink or the answer for increasing revenue.  This issue has been brought before the membership on a number of occasions and was unsuccessful in moving forward until now.  The disadvantages outweigh the advantages when you look at the total picture.

  • Vote yes on by the drink

    The Henry County Country Club was established in 1966 and opened in 1967. The facility was built as an affordable place of recreation for the Henry County community. The club offered golf, tennis, swimming and fishing then, and still does today. The club boasts one of the best golf courses in the state of Kentucky. Thousands and thousands of dollars have been brought into Henry County through tourism from the golf course.
