  • 1861: W.W. Clubb reimbursed for $29.40 in food, cloth and more

    175 Years Ago

    In the early years of Kentucky, when fences were very rare, it was legal to “take up” and care for stray farm animals.  The finder reported the stray to the sheriff who listed the animal along with a description in the stray book.  If an owner was not found for the animal the finder could keep it.  If the owner was found he could pay the finder for keeping the animal and take it back.

    Library receives $2,100 state grant

    The Henry county library has received a Kentucky state aid grant of $2,100, Fred Thompson, president of the library board, announced Monday.

    State aid for library and bookmobile service is awarded yearly on an achievement basis. This year’s grant to Henry County includes $1,000 which is received annually as a result of the successful Library District vote.

  • Alcohol sales won’t be good for county

    In last week’s perspective regarding the legalization of alcohol by drink, the story mentioned that no voice or opinion either for or against the vote had been heard, leaving the assumption that no one had an opinion. I do have an opinion, and after voicing it to each pastor and congregation in a personal letter on two separate occasions, I have found that not every clergy and congregation shares my opinion. 

    With little response, it appears that I am left standing alone; however, according to my convictions, I am willing to do so.

  • Business owner 
supports option vote

    As you may be aware, on Dec. 13, Henry Countians will cast their vote on whether to allow the sale of alcoholic beverages in restaurants that have seating for 50 people or more.

    It is my opinion, voting yes would drastically increase the job opportunities available in our county. As owner of Country Collectibles, I believe that within three to four months I would double my work force in order to properly staff the food-service end of my business.

  • Glad for option vote

    I’m so glad that Henry County is finally getting smart in putting the moist law to the vote.  It will put us on an even playing field with surrounding counties to attract more businesses which could bring in more money for us.  

    If a person chooses to have a drink with their meal, they won’t have to drive to La Grange, Louisville or Carrollton to have one.
