  • Fire station situation is a crisis

    This city has a crisis on its hands. The fire station. At this time, it is inoperable. The fire department has one tanker truck in there, hoping the water the truck carries and needs doesn’t freeze. This information I got first hand from a volunteer firefighter.

    Here is a fact that everyone needs to grasp ... Campbellsburg needs the fire department. It is one of three vital services we need for our safety and our very lives. Police, fire and ambulance services are the ones that answer our calls for help. Remember, they can truly make a difference whether you live or die.

  • Readers sound off on Danny May appeal

    I am writing about the appellate court that granted the (Danny) May appeal. I think you did a great job in your story. I hope that everyone who read that article will see that there are a lot of people that are not getting a fair deal. And thank God someone from the Court of Appeals took time to research May’s court record, and found in his favor. Glory be to God in the highest. I hope that everyone will respond to that article.

  • Readers sound off on Danny May appeal

    I am writing in regard to the May appeal story because I am one of the few people who have seen the records that exist which contain certain statements made by the state that are in my opinion very wrong for a person of the court to make when they are involved in the case that decides the fate of that person.

  • Readers sound off on Danny May appeal

    After reading the Dec. 9, 2009 article published on the case against Danny May, I begin to wonder what happened to our “fair and impartial” Judicial system.  If something like this can happen to a guy like Danny, whom I’ve known for more than 15 years, then it could happen to just about anybody.

    I didn’t want to believe that someone with an outlook on life like Danny  could have ever done such things, but at the same time I began to have my doubts towards his innocence after his conviction.

  • Please don’t steal my new trash cart

    I assure you that I did not intend to herald in a new year and a new decade on a negative note but some recent circumstances have provoked me to the point where I feel compelled to vent a little. It’s about Rumpke trash cans — let me explain.

  • There’s more to the CFD rebuild

    After reading last week’s editorial in the Henry County Local, I feel I should address some of the issues raised.

  • Food and prescription assistance

    For all Henry County residents there are two new opportunities for assistance that you may be interested in.  First, on the last Wednesday of each month the Dare to Care Mobile Food Pantry will be at the Henry County Fairgrounds from 3 to 6 p.m. The Henry County and Eminence Schools Family Resource Centers have taken the lead on this new program and are doing an excellent job with it. The mobile pantry came to Henry County for the first time last month. It served an estimated 250 people, providing them with a box of food which included meat and potatoes.

  • Energy, economy, education studies received by General Assembly

    At the end of the year, and with an eye on the beginning of another legislative session, the General Assembly often receives studies from a handful of special committees formed to study a single issue.

    2009 was no different, with at least five providing their findings in recent weeks.  Energy was the driving force behind two, while education and the economy were the focus of the other three.
