Today's Opinions

  • 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.

  • Extra! Extra! Henry County Local among best in Ky.

    You hold in your hands one of the best newspapers in Kentucky. 

    Although that is my personal opinion, you don’t have to take that at face value. We have proof.

    Last week at an awards presentation of the Kentucky Press Association, The “Henry County Local,” your community newspaper, earned a third place award for overall General Excellence among like-sized weekly newspapers across the state.

  • Response to letter
  • Services for veterans

    On behalf of the patients and staff of the Robley Rex VA Medical Center, I am writing to take this opportunity to introduce Richard Hayes, an approved volunteer for the medical center. Richard Hayes has accepted a position as community outreach volunteer, working closely with the Hospice and Palliative Care and our veterans served by this very important program.
