  • Reader will miss Bethlehem Living Nativity

    This year for the first time in my 55 years I will not be in Henry County in the days before Christmas which means that for the first time I can remember since I was a teenager, I will not stand in the Bethlehem Living Nativity.

    I am happy to have my husband and daughters and in-laws to share Christmas Day here in Memphis — and we will cross the rivers and woods on Dec. 26 to reach my folks’ Henry County farm for another celebration with four generations of Clubbs.

  • Did you hear? Rumor causes ruckus

    Did you hear? A couple of weeks ago, on Nov. 30, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Kentucky State Police raided the Henry County Courthouse. They took computers and financial records.

    No, wait, that’s not right.

    They raided Henry County Planning and Zoning and, in addition to taking computers and financial records, shut the Planning and Zoning office down.

    You didn’t hear that? Hmm. If you didn’t, you must have been under a rock a couple weeks ago.

  • City must end the cycle

    I attended the last two meetings of the Pleasureville City Council where the issue of property maintenance and police protection was discussed in length by both the citizens in attendance and the members of the city council.  This has been a hot topic in the city for several years.

  • Jesus was no Liberal

    Last week someone wrote a Letter to the Editor entitled “Jesus is a Liberal.”  To say that Jesus was a liberal is to say that the Bible is a liberal publication.  This statement cannot be farther from the truth.  You can read in the Book of Judges that the Jewish people were self-governed.  They had no formal government.  Liberals constantly want larger government with more regulation and higher taxes as a result.  When we read 1 Samuel, we find the Israelites asking God for a king.  God explains to them that they are to be set apart from other

  • Helping Kentucky families save money on home heating costs

    Thankfully, the nation is not gripped in an energy crisis that drives up home heating costs this winter. Experts predict that Kentuckians can expect to pay about 39 percent less for natural gas than they paid last winter as natural gas prices drop to their lowest levels in six years. The cost of electric heat, heating oil and propane has also declined this year, meaning smaller bills and bigger savings for many households.

  • Grayson speaking to GOP

    We are now halfway through the registration period for the 2010 election cycle. For anyone considering running for any countywide public office, you have until Jan. 26 to register at the Henry County Clerk’s office.

    The next Henry County Republican Party meeting will be held in the new Henry County High School cafeteria at 7 p.m. on Dec. 15. In lieu of our standard agenda, Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson will be attending the meeting to discuss and answer any questions about the election process.

  • Celebrate a Kentucky Proud Christmas

    A month ago, there was a dust-up in Frankfort regarding what to call the evergreen tree that traditionally stands in the front of the Capitol every Christmas season.  For most of us, this symbol of the renewal and promise of Christ’s birth is called the Christmas Tree. Regrettably, in a misguided attempt to be politically correct, the Governor decided to be the first Kentucky Governor to call it a Holiday Tree.  This change spurred disappointment and even anger throughout the Commonwealth. Thousands joined a Facebook page urging the Governor to reconsider.

  • I’m giving candy making another try

    In the spirit of the holiday season, I have decided to give candy-making one more try this year. It just seems like such a festive undertaking, and I have collected some very pretty containers in the past few years that would be perfect to fill with homemade candy and give away to friends as Christmas gifts.
