  • 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.

  • Thanks for support

    We would like to express our sincere appreciation to those who helped make our Aug. 15 parade a success; for those who loaned us their cars, their time and those who rode in the parade. 

    We also are thankful to those who took time just to stand on the street and wave. 

  • Snakes serve purpose

    Thank you for Chris Brooke’s informative editorial on snakes. 

    Snakes are very beneficial in that they eat agricultural pests like mice, rats, chipmunks, grasshoppers, etc. 

    They do frighten people, but snakes generally will not bite unless attacked first. Even poisonous snakes, which are rare, want to get away from a threat rather than attack it. 

  • Wishing Hawkins well

    The Henry County Republican Party would like to wish New Castle Magistrate, Nick Hawkins (District 4) well in his move, and truly thanks him for his tenure on the Fiscal Court and for his years of public service.  

  • Christians have rights, too
  • Magistrate resigns
  • Heartfelt thanks

    Mark and Margie Fassio would like to thank everyone in the county who has been so generous in helping them prepare for Mark’s latest cancer surgery.  The outpouring of prayers and support has once again shown us how generous and caring the people of this county are, and it has made a lasting impression on us as to realizing the true value of “friends.”   And what friends you are!

  • CodeRed should be used for city emergencies

    CodeRed should be used for city emergencies

    I’ve been signed up for CodeRed for some time now and, while this service could be very useful, I have to admit that I don’t understand how the city is using it.
