• The price of politics

    Recently many of Kentucky’s newspapers contained a letter from AT&T’s Kentucky President, Hood Harris, promoting legislation, specifically House Bill 152 and Senate Bill 3. What Mr. Harris’s letter did not tell you is that in 2014 alone AT&T donated over $34,000, in an effort to promote these bills, to campaign funds for members of Kentucky’s General Assembly. 

  • Love yourself, enroll in healthcare

    Ah, poor February, the shortest month of the year and the only month that is extended by one day every four years and that still leaves it a day short of all its eleven brethren. 

  • Dinner out to support our students
  • Glad city history is appreciated

    I was very pleased with Chris Brooke’s column about the Mesker storefronts in New Castle that appeared in the last issue of the Local.

    Speaking on behalf of many others, it is heartening to know that someone relatively new to the area “feels good about working in a community in which much history has been kept intact.”

  • Thanks for support

    The Henry County Family Resource Center and Youth Service Center would like to thank each of you who took your time to help us with our 2014 Christmas for Kids program.

    With your generous donations and sponsorships, we were able to serve over 90 children in the Henry County school district.

    We are each truly blessed to work in such a caring and giving community!


  • Prepare for judgment


    Are you ready?

    This question needs to be asked to everyone. 

  • School Board members recognized


  • In honor of True


    Upon learning that the Honorable Bobby K. True of Bedford intends to retire from the practice of law, I wanted to express my thoughts about a man who has had an extraordinary career.  

  • Many thanks


    Christmas 2014 has come and gone, leaving us with memories of the season and the events of the past year. And for the 56th year the Bethlehem Living Nativity was presented as a reminder of the real meaning of Christmas. 

  • Postmark change not welcome

    Anyone who has sent or received a Christmas/holiday card that was routed through the Bethlehem Post Office this year most likely noticed something different compared to previous years.
    Since 1947 the iconic image of the three Wiseman following the Christmas star has adorned any card that came through the Bethlehem Post Office. Local folks and even those from around the world send their cards just to have this special stamp appear on their cards. 
    This year however, anyone wanting this historic stamp will be sorely disappointed.
