Today's Opinions

  • Follow-up to theft

    This is a comment on last week’s, Message to Thieves.

    The roll of wire mesh with straw that was taken (stolen) from the Defoe Cemetery. 

    The roll was returned to a cemetery board member.  The board member says the person who returned it did not do so because he/she read of it in the Local,  maybe his/her conscience got to bothering him/her.  

  • A Memorial Day message for those who serve

    It may not be the official start of the season, but for most of us, the upcoming three-day weekend is when summer arrives.

    This time is about much more than that, of course.  More importantly, it’s when our nation pays tribute to those who died defending our country.

    That list now has more than 1.2 million names, about half of which were added during the four years of the Civil War.

  • Thumbs up for positive content

    I would like to take a moment to let the staff of the Henry County Local know how much I appreciate their efforts in reporting all the good things going on in our community.  

    I know that whenever I have had an event going on such as Organ Donation Awareness Month or the Relay For Life, the Local has provided ample coverage to help get the information out.  

  • Get out and vote for the 2015 Primary

    Hundreds of thousands of young Americans are serving our military to preserve our way of life, and yet fewer and fewer of our citizens are participating in our democracy. May 19 is primary election day, when Kentuckians will be selecting candidates for governor, commissioner of agriculture and other constitutional officers. 

    Members of Henry County Farm Bureau hope every voter will make their voices heard by casting informed votes for our government leaders.

  • A call for Congress to repeal the Patriot Act

    By U.S. Representative Thomas Massie

    Congress faces a critical deadline, and time is running out.  On June 1, 2015, three provisions of the USA Patriot Act will expire.  The actions of the United States Congress between today and June 1 will affect the privacy and liberty of millions of innocent Americans.

  • Celebrating one year in Henry County

    This spring, my wife Beth and I have enjoyed several anniversaries that highlight our growing bonds with our new communities.

    With our transition eased by extended family long established in the region, we uprooted ourselves about 14 months ago from the mountains of Virginia, a place where we lived 17 years, to pursue great new opportunities here in Kentucky.

  • Requesting your support

    The Henry County High School Class of 2016 would like to invite you to their Ford Drive 4 UR School fundraiser May 16 at the high school from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  

    There will be vendors of all assortments and food from the Smoke Doctors. This fundraiser is unlike any fundraiser you have probably participated in before because it requires no money and no purchasing of items you will never use.  

  • Message to thieves

    To the thieves who took the roll of wire mesh with straw, used to cover graves when grass seed has been sown, please consider this:  Although you will consider your act as not a major theft, maybe you did it on a dare, maybe you had new grass seed you needed to cover, maybe you took it for the heck of it, but it is of major importance to us the Board of Directors of the Defoe Cemetery.
