Today's Opinions

  • Thank you

    How many times in our lives are there people who are in our community that do something special for us and we never take the time to thank them properly?

  • Library article was misleading

    The news article in the Dec. 21, 2011, Henry County Local concerning the need for a new Henry County Library was totally misleading.

    Myself: “Yes, our wise leaders seem to be very optimistic.”

  • Find the system that works for you

    Now that you know where to find coupons, you need to have a system so you can keep them organized. Here are three tried and true systems and I will list the pros and cons of each. I have tried all of them. There is a right or wrong way to do it. I actually incorporate all three.

  • Count the benefits of buying local

    When shopping runs you ragged, and you think there is no end to the trips to the Big City,” stop and think about the fact that Henry County has many good businesses that may offer just what you need without the hassle. 

    While we all realize we need more businesses to offer the items you cannot purchase here, we should remember to help our current businesses stay in the community.

    Why shop Henry County? Let us count the ways…
