  • Taking care of veterans should be a priority

    One of the ongoing challenges our country faces is making sure our veterans receive the full benefits they have rightfully earned.

    Unfortunately, as we discovered during a legislative meeting earlier this month, there are still some who are either unaware of what is available or who have become mired in bureaucracy.  The good news is that, thanks to the Kentucky Department of Veterans Affairs (KDVA), we are making great strides in closing these twin gaps.

  • I'm going to need a giant can of hairspray

    Donald Trump and I have something in common, and it’s not the size of our bank accounts.

    Much like Trump, I, too, will report for jury duty this week. However, I won’t arrive in a limo, I won’t be allowed to park in a no parking zone and there won’t be any paparazzi there to capture my entry into the courtroom. 

  • Christians have rights, too
  • Magistrate resigns
  • Heartfelt thanks

    Mark and Margie Fassio would like to thank everyone in the county who has been so generous in helping them prepare for Mark’s latest cancer surgery.  The outpouring of prayers and support has once again shown us how generous and caring the people of this county are, and it has made a lasting impression on us as to realizing the true value of “friends.”   And what friends you are!

  • Time for us to 'come together...right now'

    By Mark Fassio, guest columnist

    DISCLAIMER:  If this piece makes it into the Local, you’ll be reading it as I’m emerging  from cancer surgery #4.  So if there’s any objections to what I’ve written, wait for my post-op recovery before coming after me, ok?

  • Washington Lodge plays role in all our heritage

    The Grand United Order of Odd Fellows is an African-American fraternal organization founded in 1843. Although the GUOOF still exists, its overall membership has declined sharply, just as the number of fraternal organizations everywhere has fallen. 

  • Not many snakes slither in Henry County

    On sunny but cool spring days, snakes warming up their cold-blooded selves on the heat-absorbing blacktop is their version of a human basking in a campfire.

    It happened fairly often that snakes would sprawl out in the middle of an Indiana country road to get comfortable. As a young driver, I learned the hard way that bump in the road wasn’t a piece of tire or other kind of long, skinny debris that commonly appear in the highway, but it was the snake who paid the awful price.
