  • Things are looking up for Kentucky in 2016

    Around this time of year, we often find ourselves counting, whether it is the number of days left in the year, the number of presents we still need to buy or the number of calories we put on our plates.  The holidays are when many count their blessings as well.

    In that regard, 2015 has turned out to be a pretty good year in many respects for the commonwealth.

    Stumbo’s comments ‘shameful’

    Throughout the campaign, and in his inaugural address, Gov. Matt Bevin has shared he wants a fresh start for Kentucky. He has said he wants to move beyond partisan politics. Over the past few weeks, Gov. Bevin has made great appointments for his cabinet secretaries. The latest is Rep. John Tilley, who happens to be a Democrat, as the next Justice and Public Safety Cabinet secretary. Tilley had served as the House Judiciary Committee chairman.

  • Kentucky offers many seasonal gifts and activities

    If you’re still looking for that perfect gift, or for an experience that puts a Kentucky spin on the season, the good news is that there is no shortage of opportunities even as time starts to draw short.

  • Providing school meals is not as easy as 1-2-3 or ABC

    Henry County made national news last week after a Henry County High School student’s Facebook post about seeing another student refused lunch went viral, caught wind and sailed across local airwaves, across the country and even across the pond hitting the news in London.

    The student’s post expressed frustration with the school district for not allowing the other student to have a meal because her lunch account was overdue. 

  • School security

    I would like to commend the Eminence school system for their security measures.

    At the end of school, my son’s last class is at the old DeliPlus complex. On rainy days, I will stop over there and drop off his umbrella.

    The fact that just about everybody knows who I am didn’t matter — they kept the doors locked until I left. 

  • Thanks for support in Pleasureville

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that came out to the 2015 Light up Pleasureville. It was very humbling to have so many community members support me and the event. It was estimated almost 300 people came out to take advantage of all the activities. 

  • Vote 'no' to increased alcohol sales

    Please vote no on Dec. 15 in regard to increased alcohol sales in Henry County. If we do not vote down the effort to make Henry County “wet,” Henry County will be forever changed.
