  • Harvest Showcase committee asks for more community support

    Henry County has a proud farming heritage. Never have I seen it more appropriately on display than at the annual Henry County Harvest Showcase.

  • This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine

    The potential of solar power has not yet seen the light of day in Kentucky, but that could change with a little prodding of the General Assembly, according to the Community Farm Alliance.

  • Well deserved

    I personally want to thank Debbie Hartford for everything she has done for my son down through the years. If I could have been at the assembly I would have thanked her in person. Our kids are in such good hands at our school with so many dedicated faculty. That’s why our school doesn’t take a backseat to anyone. Go Warriors!

  • Help Kentucky's hungry and Kentucky's farmers

    When you donate a part of your state tax refund to the Farms to Food Banks Trust Fund, you’re helping Kentuckians in unfortunate circumstances – some of them your friends and neighbors – gain access to fresh, nutritious, local foods. You’re also helping Kentucky farmers make a living. It’s good for economic development, and it’s consistent with Kentucky values of compassion and generosity.

  • Ky. General Assembly 2015 session passes halfway mark

    There are milestones in each General Assembly session.

    This week’s arrival of the mid-point of the 2015 session is a noteworthy one. The halfway mark is a natural place to look back at the first half of the session and consider what’s been accomplished.

  • Making necessary adjustments this week

    The paper might look a little different this week.

    Due to a fire at one of our corporate printing plants, changes had to be made for all of the newspapers in our group in order to re-route printing jobs from Standard Printing in Shepherdsville to other available plants.

  • Time to stop double-taxing Social Security

    On January 28, 2015, I introduced the Senior Citizens Tax Elimination Act (H.R. 589).  This bill would assist our struggling middle class by eliminating an unnecessary and unjust double-tax on seniors.  

  • The end of Harvest Showcase?

    The end of Harvest Showcase?

    For 15 years a small but dedicated group of Henry County citizens brought to life Kentucky’s largest all local agricultural festival right here in your own backyard.  The Henry County Harvest Showcase, held yearly on the last Saturday in July at the fairgrounds in New Castle is currently being planned for the16th year.  But, here’s the truth: it is not going to happen without your help.
