  • Countywide road cleanup is Nov. 5

    Greetings from the Henry County Planning and Zoning Office. Saturday, Nov. 5, is the annual countywide road cleanup day. This program has been in place for several years. A $28,000 litter abatement grant through the Energy and Enviroment Cabinet and the Kentucky Department of Waste Management help fund this event, which is administrated through the Solid Waste Office of Henry County.

    The program donates $100 per mile for groups to clean the roadways in our county.

  • Kentucky gaining ground in science and technology

    Over the last few decades, Kentucky has gained a well-earned reputation for its groundbreaking work in science and technology.

    We will forever be home to the world’s first self-contained artificial heart and the nation’s first hand transplant, for example, and two of our researchers were behind the world’s first 100 percent effective cancer vaccine.

  • Vote for Sanders

    I am writing this letter in support of my brother Billy Sanders for the position of the Henry County jailer.  So often we get caught up in voting for the political party that we are affiliated with instead of who is really the best candidate for the job, especially on the local level.  

    There are three candidates running for this position and I’m sure all are upstanding citizens of Henry County, but there is really only one who is qualified and experienced to do this job on day one and that is Billy Sanders.

  • Vote Sanders for jailer

    My name is Gregory Walker and I have been a resident of Henry County for approximately 25 years. I have known Billy Sanders during this time and am also well acquainted with his family. Billy stepped in as Henry County jailer and took the position when the elected jailer decided to quit. He has maintained this position since that time and has done so in an excellent manner.

  • 900 Days without a Budget

    Kentucky families and businesses plan and prioritize their spending by making and following a responsible budget.  Congress is required to do the same by passing an annual budget, a blueprint for all federal spending. 

    While the House of Representatives passed a fiscally responsible budget on April 11, 2011, the Senate has not passed a budget since April 29, 2009, more than 900 days ago.

    Not only is this fiscally irresponsible, it is a failure of leadership and a breakdown of one of the most basic functions of government.

  • Vote for Scott Southworth

    My name is Gloris Southworth, and I would like to introduce you to my son, Scott Southworth, who is running for the office of Henry County jailer in the November election.

    Scott is a life-long resident of Henry County. He chose to remain close to his roots and family throughout the years. You will find that he is a very hard-working, honest and dependable person. These traits date back to his teenage years when his dad, Lee, and I could depend on him to operate our businesses in New Castle during our absence.
