  • 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. 

  • Business should offer more discounts

    With all the money that [a fast food restaurant] is making off of the citizens of Henry County, I asked do they have senior citizens discount meals and I was told they only discount coffee and some drinks.

    Dairy Queen does have senior discount meals, and myself being a senior citizen can’t understand why [a fast food restaurant], who is again making a killing, does not have them.

  • Town's festival not exactly up to par

    I heard there may not be a Light Up New Castle this year because they are too tired. To me, that’s just plain laziness.

    You took over things, that means you have to do Christmas because the children look forward to meeting and telling Santa Claus what they want.

  • Company’s annual tradition shows appreciation

    On some anniversaries we celebrate. On others we reflect.

     

    The fourteenth anniversary of the attack on America and New York’s World Trade Center is one of the times for reflection. There is truly nothing to celebrate in the extraordinary tragedy of 9/11.

    As much as I would like to forget some of them, the images from that day will never be out of my mind, nor will the victims and their families.
