  • Henry County Public Library has its biggest month ever

    The Henry County Public Library would like to thank the fine people of Henry County and the surrounding areas for a truly magical month.

  • Column: Terrorists belong in Guantanamo, not Bowling Green

    A few weeks ago, it would have been safe to say not a single foreign terrorist in the world could find Bowling Green, Kentucky, on a map. But after the ill-advised decision of the Obama Administration to try two foreign fighters in a civilian federal court in Bowling Green, they probably know where it is now.

    Over the past few weeks, a broad bipartisan coalition of concerned local, state, and federal leaders have expressed deep concerns with the prospect of trying these enemy combatants in Kentucky.

  • Thieves will have to answer for their deeds

    This letter is for all the people that have had flowers, vases and wreaths stolen from a loved one’s gravesite. It’s as if we haven’t had enough grief after losing someone that they add to the agony by taking these items. You will have to answer for these deeds on judgment day and hopefully you will think before you do this again!

  • Stop taking our flowers!

    To whoever is stealing flowers from the New Castle Cemetery: Many people like to keep flowers on the grave of family members. It is bad when you have to replace them two or three times a year because someone steals them. I know the wind blows them off sometimes, but other times people take them. I am sure everyone who has had flowers missing would appreciate it if you would stop.

  • A legacy of helping senior citizens

    One of the country’s biggest challenges over the next few decades is ensuring that the “golden years” truly live up to their name for our older citizens.

    As more Baby Boomers begin turning 65 – the first began celebrating that milestone birthday in January – this group of citizens promises to be a fastest-growing demographic for quite some time.

  • Needed reform: The REINS Act

    Some utility companies in Kentucky announced in May that they would need to raise electricity rates by about 20 percent  over the next five years in order to pay for the upgrades necessary to meet stricter federal environmental regulations.

    These new rules and the resulting increase in utility rates will make it more difficult for families to pay their bills, and will leave job creating businesses with less money to grow and hire new employees.
