  • Retirees to rally

    As members of the General Assembly return to Frankfort for the 2016 Regular Session, they will find themselves facing a multitude of challenges, one of the more critical being pension funding.  Legislative action in the 2013 Regular Session provided the framework for funding the plans managed by the Kentucky Retirement Systems (KRS).  Public employee (and teacher) pensions will require tens of millions of new dollars in the budget simply to stem the erosion of funding levels.  

  • Right place, right time, wrong attitude

    A recent voters’ decision allowing Henry County  “wet” status was a countywide progressive movement mandating county leadership to take another look at our economic development policies and attitude.  The current negative attitude has guided Henry County to higher taxes, depleting savings and impaired services.

  • Disappointed with comments

    I am extremely disappointed by the comments made by our judge-executive in the article about the alcohol vote from the Dec. 23rd edition of the Local.

    Our wonderful bookmobile librarian, Linda Moore (pictured at right), is retiring after more than 29 years of service with the library. 

  • Stumbo's comments 'shameful'

    Stumbo’s comments ‘shameful’

    Throughout the campaign, and in his inaugural address, Gov. Matt Bevin has shared he wants a fresh start for Kentucky. He has said he wants to move beyond partisan politics. Over the past few weeks, Gov. Bevin has made great appointments for his cabinet secretaries. The latest is Rep. John Tilley, who happens to be a Democrat, as the next Justice and Public Safety Cabinet secretary. Tilley had served as the House Judiciary Committee chairman.

  • School security

    I would like to commend the Eminence school system for their security measures.

    At the end of school, my son’s last class is at the old DeliPlus complex. On rainy days, I will stop over there and drop off his umbrella.

    The fact that just about everybody knows who I am didn’t matter — they kept the doors locked until I left. 

  • Thanks for support in Pleasureville

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that came out to the 2015 Light up Pleasureville. It was very humbling to have so many community members support me and the event. It was estimated almost 300 people came out to take advantage of all the activities. 

  • Vote 'no' to increased alcohol sales

    Please vote no on Dec. 15 in regard to increased alcohol sales in Henry County. If we do not vote down the effort to make Henry County “wet,” Henry County will be forever changed.

  • Easier access to alcohol will compound problem

    As spiritual leaders, we desire to offer help with the issues that most people try to mask with alcohol and drugs, and with the upcoming local option election on Dec. 15, we want to convey that our hearts are concerned for the people of our county in which we serve.

  • Thanks for cleanup efforts

    On Saturday, Nov. 7, nearly 500 Henry County citizens put on their safety gear and assisted with Henry County’s annual roadside litter clean up. 

    Working under the direction of Henry County Planning and Zoning and Henry County Solid Waste Department, these citizens cleaned 200 miles of Henry County roads. Through the efforts of 34 teams, over 1,200 bags of trash were collected.
