Today's Opinions

  • Where were the health department employees?

    Thank you to governor Steve Beshear for the commonwealth’s contribution of monies for the new Henry County Health Department.

    There was, however, a group of people missing from the ground breaking ceremony on Thursday, Sept. 9. As Judge-Executive John Logan Brent and the Governor, turned over a spade of dirt, did anyone ask where the Henry County Health Department staff were?


  • Cedar Lake thanks county for support

    On behalf of Cedar Lake Lodge, and particularly our 130 employees who make their home in Henry County, we want to thank everyone who has aided, encouraged, supported or welcomed the addition of our Cedar Lake Lodge Park Place homes in the new Henry County Recreational and Services Park.  We’ve long enjoyed our close kinship with Henry County and it is now an even stronger bond.

  • Regarding “Security breach closes Home Health Agency”

    The Henry County Home Health Agency opened in 1976 in New Castle, and provided services to patients in Henry, Oldham, Trimble and Oldham Counties. I worked there from 1997 to 1999 with the last few years as supervisor/coordinator. I retired in 1999 and returned from 2008 to July 1 2010 in the nurse consultant/coordinator position (the eighth coordinator since 1999). In the early 1980s, four counties chose to join together to form the North Central District Health Department for economical as well as to be able to provide better services to the communities.

  • Who do you have to know?

    As a tax paying resident of Henry County, I think it’s only reasonable to expect that the road I live on receive the same care and maintenance as any other road in the county.


  • Park ceremony was nice event

    The dedication perseverance and volunteer efforts were apparent at the park dedication and ribbon cutting Thursday, Sept. 9.

  • Are you ready for some politickin?

    It’s almost that time. Yard signs are populating yards like bunny rabbits.

    That can only mean one thing — it’s election time. The big day is less than 60 days away. Are you ready?

    At that time, we’ll cast our votes for nearly all of our county offices as well as for U.S. Senator.

    I consider it an honor, privilege and a duty to go to the polls.

  • Column - Geoff Davis

    Last week, I had the honor and privilege of participating in the dedication ceremony for the Kentucky Veterans Cemetery North East in Greenup County, the Commonwealth’s fourth State veterans cemetery.  The new cemetery, which will serve veterans and their families in northeastern Kentucky, demonstrates the Commonwealth’s profound appreciation for the sacrifices made by brave men and women to protect our freedom.

  • KSP invites residents to Citizens’ Police Academy

    Society has always been interested in police work and finds the issue of crime a fascinating topic. Television programming has included shows about crime and police work from every angle and context throughout its history. The Kentucky State Police have developed a new program which taps into that same fascination and curiosity that people have with crime and police work. This new initiative, dubbed the Citizens’ Police Academy, will provide an opportunity for community members to feed their interest with reality.
