Today's Opinions

  • With regard to “Judges: New Space is Needed”

    I am very sympathetic to our Judges, and court workers, in their desire for a new court house. These officials work very hard and operate in less than ideal conditions. They make a good case for improved working conditions and, of course, everyone would like a new office. Unfortunately for these hard-working people, money is the issue. Yes, the money is coming from another government entity but we all pay for everything government does.

  • Alcohol by the drink sales would drive economic development in Henry County

    Henry County Fiscal Court is in pursuit of Economic Development for job creation and economic growth. Proper economic development requires good planning and community involvement to allow growth which is desired by its citizens.

  • Vote no on by the drink

    Vote no to the by-the-drink for the Henry County Recreational Corporation.  This is not the place for alcohol by the drink or the answer for increasing revenue.  This issue has been brought before the membership on a number of occasions and was unsuccessful in moving forward until now.  The disadvantages outweigh the advantages when you look at the total picture.

  • Vote yes on by the drink

    The Henry County Country Club was established in 1966 and opened in 1967. The facility was built as an affordable place of recreation for the Henry County community. The club offered golf, tennis, swimming and fishing then, and still does today. The club boasts one of the best golf courses in the state of Kentucky. Thousands and thousands of dollars have been brought into Henry County through tourism from the golf course.

  • A plan for America’s jobs creators

    As the jobless rate in Kentucky continues to hover around ten percent, it is clear that years of unchecked government growth and spending by Washington Democrats did not restore our economy, nor put Americans back to work.  It is time for a new plan.

  • Where is discussion on allowing alcohol beverages throughout county?

    In recent days my wife and I signed the petition to bring a vote to the people of this County on whether they would like to offer the alcoholic beverages in establishments such as restaurants. It was to my surprise that the petition in a local business was the first I had heard or seen the issue.

    Where is the discussion? Where is the debate? Where are the opinions? I would think the people of this community would welcome the opportunity to provide its leaders with direction by allowing such a vote, for or against.

  • Freedom is anything but free

    For many Americans, Memorial Day signals the beginning of summer.  But, more importantly, Memorial Day is a day for us to remember and give thanks to all those who have given their lives in service to our nation and to preserve the freedom we enjoy. 

    As a West Point graduate and former Army Ranger, I am especially mindful this Memorial Day of our troops serving in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, around the world and here at home. 

  • Wrap up of the FFA year

    The first week of May was the celebration of an outstanding year in the Henry County FFA.
