Today's Opinions

  • Appreciative of the opportunity, moving on

     

    When I came to Henry County, I couldn’t have been more excited. I had my first real job in my career and was moving to Louisville with my wife. 

  • Letter to the editor

     

    First, allow me to congratulate the committee who organized this year’s Harvest Showcase for another job well done.  

  • Misdirected ramblings and bad information

     

    In just the last few weeks, I’ve decided the only real advantage that GPS on a mobile device can accurately claim over a map is you don’t have to fold electronics after getting finished with them.

  • Who says you can’t go home?

    I wouldn’t call myself a country music fan. I wouldn’t really say I’m a huge music fan in general. Growing up, my parents would more often than not just drive in silence or have conversation, rather than listen to the radio or CDs.

    My grandfather, though, listened to music constantly in the car. When he would pick me up from school, which he did, more than anyone else, we would listen to country music all the way home.

  • Henry County is home to many helpers

    In my career as a reporter/editor, I tend to learn things organically, by visiting with people in the community and hearing their points of view.

    After all, no person can know everything. Going to the sources, to the experts, and getting to benefit from the knowledge they’ve accumulated over the years can open a person’s eyes in short order.

    EMT students graduate

    It’s graduation time for local students who have successfully completed the EMT program sponsored by Stars of Life Qualification Services, LLC. Five local students and seven LG&E Trimble County plant students will graduate Saturday, July 26, 2014, as they perform the final skills testing abilities beginning at 8 a.m. at the Campbellsburg Fire Department Station Three in Pendleton.

    Graduation will follow the testing.

  • Support the local economy with the Henry County Farmers Market

    Have you seen those bumper stickers that say, “I farm. You eat.”?

    I started seeing them several years ago and thought it sounded like farmers were being a bit egotistical or self-important. But that was before I tried my hand at it.

    Before I stopped working full-time about six years ago, I was an avid and loyal customer of the Henry County Farmers Market. Working as many hours as I did prohibited me from having my own garden, but I desperately wanted fresh local produce in the summer, especially garden-grown tomatoes.

    Thief on the loose in Eminence

    We had rented a house on 578 Sulphur Avenue in Eminence. We were in the process of taking the old fence down around the house and putting a new wooden fence up.

    We had laid the old metal gate to the fence in our yard to wake up the next morning, to find somebody had come into our yard and stole the gate with the post attached.

    If somebody needed it that bad, all they had to do was ask!

    I do not steal and don’t like or appreciate people who do!
