Today's Opinions

  • Criminals get out!

    That is it! I have read enough in the public records section to make me sick.

    All you dummies who want to partake in drugs, steal from us Henry Countians and abuse your family members are cordially invited to move out of Henry County and forever leave us alone. Get out!

  • Providing protections for vulnerable Kentucians

    By Paul Hornback, Ky. Senate

    The passage of bills that would help children with disabilities, preserve rights of victims in criminal cases, and fight for the rights of the unborn highlighted another busy week in the Senate. As Thursday marked day 40 of our 60-day legislative session in Frankfort, we are still anxiously awaiting a budget bill from our colleagues in the House.

  • Sharing the art and science of Henry County photography

    Here’s a professional confession — the bright red bird presented on the front page of the Feb. 17 edition of the newspaper wasn’t actually a Kentucky cardinal.

    In truth, that colorful example of the species perched on the edge of a feeder in Virginia. The file photo remained buried deep in my collected archive of 44,000 images.

  • Lessons learned from Grandpa Knapp

    My Grandpa (Gaylon O. Knapp) was a farmer. 

    Some of my happiest memories from childhood include times spent with him in his fields. Long before I was old enough to be of real help, Grandpa found things for me to do. 

  • Important to vote

    The League of Women Voters works to engage citizens in the democratic process and wants to alert Kentucky Republicans about the Saturday, March 5, Republican Presidential Caucus. 

    The caucus is a new and unfamiliar process for Kentucky and we want to be sure citizens understand this will be the only opportunity for Republicans to cast their ballot for Republican presidential candidates. 

  • Need more coverage

    I am just curious why the Henry County Local didn’t finish the month of February with anything about Black History Month. 

    I thought part of a newspaper’s job is to inform and educate the public. Families should also do this. 

    As I go through life with my young son, I try to educate him about going through life as a biracial person. It doesn’t matter if you are black, white or whatever, you need to know about your history. 

  • Caucus is Saturday

    This Saturday, March 5, is the Kentucky Republican Presidential Caucus from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the 4-H Building at the Henry County Fairgrounds. 

    All registered Republican voters (as of Dec. 31, 2015), will be allowed to attend and vote for the Republican presidential candidate of their choice.  

    Republican voters can arrive from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., be verified, as you would at a primary election, go into the voting room, vote and leave. 

  • House considers bills to provide consumer protection

    When it comes to the public’s safety and well-being, consumer protection may not always grab the headlines, but that doesn’t diminish its importance.

    It was the key theme last week in the Kentucky House, which moved forward not one but four bills touching on this issue.
