  • Christmas thief is a cheap soul

    Our family put a Christmas saddle/flowers on my dad’s grave on Christmas Day at the New Castle Cemetery. By the next morning it had been stolen. These were put on in memory of someone that we loved very much.  Yet was stolen by someone that was truly a heartless and soulless person. We have heard this happens every year to people, and it is truly a sad thing.  Our family hopes our hurt brought you and your family some happiness over the holiday. You truly are a sad and cheap soul.

  • Thanks to help with Nativity Scene

    The Bethlehem Living Nativity Committee would like to thank everyone who had a part in any way, in making this year’s portrayal of the birth of Jesus Christ another success. Many braved the cold and snowy weather to come stand, listen to the music and reflect on the real meaning of Christmas. This is a true testament to the faith you all have. May God bless you all.

  • HCIT a success

    First of all, thank you to our parents who worked numerous hours, brought food for our hospitality room and did what was necessary for our tournament to run smoothly.

  • The best presents aren’t under the tree

    It’s been awhile since I was able to spend Christmas with both parents and my siblings.

    Since coming to Henry County we’ve been deterred by weather and ill-timed car problems.

    You see, it’s about a four-hour drive to get to my dad’s home in Western Kentucky — there’s no direct route, and the path is easily made treacherous by the slightest amount of snow.

    Mom’s place is only about 2.5 hours away, a much easier trek, mostly by interstate.

  • Looking back

    With the General Assembly set to start its legislative session early next week, now is the ideal time to take a look back at what has happened since the last one ended.

  • Wow

    On Nov. 4, 2010, I was at home and became really sick and had to call Henry County EMS to transport me to the VA hospital where I was admitted to the hospital for about five days. After getting out of the hospital and being home a couple of weeks, I received a bill from Henry County EMS for $1,391. I was so surprised by the amount of this bill that my heart skipped a beat and I thought I was going to have to go back to the hospital.

  • Falling through the charitable system

    Many Christmases ago, hard times hit the DiFazio clan. The kids were just in elementary school.

    Dad was finding it increasingly hard to deal with the debilitating effects of Multiple Sclerosis.

    Add to that the failure of both local businesses where he and I had worked for years.

    This perfect storm combined to leave us penniless at “the most wonderful time of the year.”
    I had been a part of charity in action most of my life, on the giving side.
