  • 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.

  • Where is discussion on allowing alcohol beverages throughout county?

    In recent days my wife and I signed the petition to bring a vote to the people of this County on whether they would like to offer the alcoholic beverages in establishments such as restaurants. It was to my surprise that the petition in a local business was the first I had heard or seen the issue.

    Where is the discussion? Where is the debate? Where are the opinions? I would think the people of this community would welcome the opportunity to provide its leaders with direction by allowing such a vote, for or against.

  • Wrap up of the FFA year

    The first week of May was the celebration of an outstanding year in the Henry County FFA.

  • Thanks to principal for good job

    Thank you to Lane Morris, the new principal at New Castle Elementary for doing such a great job this year. You care about each individual student’s needs. You’ve brought some much needed change to the school. Keep up the good work!

  • A chance to rekindle the sense of community

  • Tourism is key for Kentucky

    When Kentucky first got into the tourism business, James Monroe was on track to become the country’s fifth president, Daniel Boone was still alive and a 7-year-old boy named Abraham Lincoln was preparing to move from here to Indiana with his family.

    Many things have changed since 1816, of course, but that first attraction – Mammoth Cave – still remains one of the most-visited places in Kentucky, with more than 400,000 people traveling there each year.

  • Thank you for help during tornado tragedy

    It is with great gratitude that I send you this note of appreciation for those of you who have helped the Spies family during our tragedy. We are very fortunate to live in a society of thoughtful citizens such as you. From the time the tornado struck our home until now many of you have showered us with so many different gifts as well as shown many acts of kindness in different ways. Thank you so very much for all of your continued support.

    May God continue to bless you richly.

    Janet Spies and family
