  • Vote for Scott Southworth

    My name is Gloris Southworth, and I would like to introduce you to my son, Scott Southworth, who is running for the office of Henry County jailer in the November election.

    Scott is a life-long resident of Henry County. He chose to remain close to his roots and family throughout the years. You will find that he is a very hard-working, honest and dependable person. These traits date back to his teenage years when his dad, Lee, and I could depend on him to operate our businesses in New Castle during our absence.

  • Proud to call Henry County home

    Soon after our marriage in 1987, Lyndon mentioned that “Some day I would like to move back home to Henry County.” Being a Lexington girl, reared in the suburbs, I thought to myself “Over my dead body we’ll move ‘back home to Henry County!’ ”

    But, as fate would have it, in 1998 we came to Henry County. I immediately felt the loving welcome showered on me by all. I was comfortable from the beginning. Henry County felt like a warm and caring community in which to raise a family.

  • Get your body ready for winter

    As the weather turns cooler and the leaves turn colorful, thoughts turn toward winterizing your home and car. But did you ever think about winterizing your body?
