  • Clarifying article

    I saw an article in the Local about the Henry County Help Center and my leaving. This is true but my reason is not because I have family. 

    It is more about heavy lifting — no volunteers that can lift that many heavy boxes — and also it’s about the lack of communication and some things that may need to be changed. 

  • Henry County Toy Run 2015

    We are writing to apologize for the error regarding the registration and start times of the Henry County Toy Run this past Saturday. 

    This is the first year that the times were different and, unfortunately, the flyer from our 2014 Toy Run, with only a date change, was submitted to the Henry County Local and sent home with students.

  • Unhappy with water

    After going almost two months with low water pressure and dirty water, which the city clerk told me the water was safe to drink, how could the water have been safe to drink when the bottom of my dog’s water bowl and my tub was covered with brown stuff?

    Instead of getting a break on the water portion of our bill, our water bill has doubled. We are still using less water, but pay twice as much. I would like an explanation from the city about the increase and why this is happening.

  • Supporting Edelen

    ould reelect Adam Edelen to State Auditor because he has vigorously defended the public’s trust and exposed government corruption.

    Auditor Edelen has an impressive record of standing up for all Kentuckians by shedding light on the dark places of our politics.  He has protected our students through investigations into abuse like my home public school district in Shelby County where his office uncovered details of nearly $600,000 stolen through the former payroll manager.

  • Get out the vote

    Hundreds of thousands of young Americans are serving our military to preserve our way of life, and yet fewer and fewer of our citizens are participating in our democracy. November 3 is general election day when Kentuckians will be selecting candidates for governor, commissioner of agriculture and other constitutional officers. Members of Henry County Farm Bureau hope every voter will make their voices heard by casting informed votes for our government leaders.

  • Consider voting Republican

    It was announced last week, that the 4th Congressional District, of which Henry County is a part, has become the first congressional district with a Republican majority.  People are frustrated with the state of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

  • Thanks for ag tag support

    Wow!  The news is in!  Ag Tag donations were up 9 percent from last year to 25 percent of all the farm tags renewed in this county.  The Henry County FFA is so thankful for each one of you that made the choice to donate to support your local and state FFA programs in addition to 4-H and Kentucky Proud.  

  • Not about parties

    I’m not a liberal/progressive democrat, I’m not a republican. My party is the Watchmen Party. Read Ezekiel chapter 33 in the Bible.

    It’s not about what party you’re in. If you are a godly man or woman, one day you will stand before the Lord Jesus and you will have to give an account on what you do or say.

    We need to put men or women in office who will stand up for our Christian faith.

  • National Day of the Deployed

    We have many national holidays and days of observance during which we honor and celebrate significant historical events, figures and members of our society. Veterans Day, Memorial Day and POW/MIA Day are set aside to honor the service and sacrifice of our military.

  • Volunteer to make festival bigger or better

    Who “Lights-Up” New Castle?  Disappointed because there is no Light-Up scheduled? Have you considered why?  

    Charlie Sevier and a small crew worked on the City of New Castle’s Spring, Fall and Christmas celebrations for several years. He chose to resign from his leadership role in festival organizing.
