  • Courthouse decision won’t be easy

    $12.5 million. 37,500 square feet.

    That’s a lot of money, and that’s a lot of space for a new justice center.

    And in less than a week, the Fiscal Court will have to decide whether or not it will happen.

    It won’t be an easy decision, I’m sure. Supporters and opponents of the proposal by the Administrative Office of the Courts make valid points.

    When the current Henry County Courthouse was built in 1876, it must have been quite a sight; it still is.

  • New justice center: Is it a priority?

  • Just because we can

    Courthouses throughout Kentucky are not plush.  Nor do they need to be.  Some are very lacking in spaciousness.  Traveling to many different ones all over the state during my tenure with Abandoned Mine Lands and Department of Transportation, I had no problem doing my job.

  • HCYS is a positive experience

  • Open Letter to Jason Ritchie

    We give our heart and souls to the kids of this county. We all donate all of our time to making the soccer league even possible.  It is a tremendous value for your and my kids to have a sport they can participate in for only $50 and get a season, referees, trophy, uniform and a season ending bash.

  • Support the Pancreatic Cancer Research & Education Act

    Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all the cancers tracked by the American Cancer Society and the National Cancer Institute that still has a five-year survival rate in the single digits — six percent. There are no early detection tools and no effective treatments. Despite these facts, the federal government has no long-term comprehensive research strategy to combat pancreatic cancer.

  • NE New Castle voters should support option

    In less than two weeks, voters in the Northeast New Castle precinct will have a chance to decide whether or not Henry County Country Club can sell alcohol.

    They should vote to approve the measure.

    Do you want Henry County businesses to be competitive, or do you not? I certainly do.

  • Thanks for help with Fifth Grade graduation

    The 5th grade class at Eastern Elementary would like to thank the following businesses for all the donations which made their graduation caps and party a success.  Monetary donations and/or gifts were given by Affordable Signs and Apparel, All-American Sports, Choctaw Jim’s, John Shuck, State Farm, Thompson Electric, Three D Electric, and Brownings. Great food or gift certificates were given by Dairy Queen, Norm’s, Snappy, Hometown, Chat-n-Nibble and various parents. This would not have been a success without these people.
