  • Thanks for help with nativity

    We want to thank everyone who helped in any way to once again make sure the ministry of the Bethlehem Living Nativity keeps going.

    This portrayal of our savior Jesus Christ’s birth is now 51 years old.

    Without all your help and support these many years, this would surely not have been possible.

    Again, thank you so much. May God bless each of you.

  • Christmas isn’t just for children

    The other day I overheard a conversation in the grocery store while waiting in line to check out. A woman was saying that Christmas is for children, and her listener clucked her tongue and said that she certainly had to agree. I have heard this sad assessment of the holiday season before, but I am always taken aback. 

    Certainly, the religious significance of the Christmas season does not fade as one ages. If anything, it may deepen as you become stronger in your faith. I am sure there are many heartfelt sermons delivered on that very topic each December.

  • Commissioner repeats position

    As for the maintenance of the properties in Pleasureville if you had listented to what I said I am 100 percent for keeping our town looking good, the trash picked up and the yards mowed. I am not for putting a lien on someone’s property because they don’t have the money to put siding on their house. I think we have bigger things to worry about like the Pool Room was broken into; the hardware store was broken into; the post office, someone used the bathroom and wiped it on everything; a car was stolen. But they say we don’t need a police officer.

  • 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.
