  • Don’t forget the Chamber of Commerce Car Show

    The Henry County Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring its fifth annual car show at the Harry Hill Park on Saturday. 

  • Rivers are Kentucky’s oldest highways

    Kentucky’s oldest highway system – our 1,100 miles of navigable rivers – has been getting a closer look in recent months by the General Assembly.

    A year ago, a permanent legislative committee dedicated solely to waterways held its first meeting; and earlier this year, during the legislative session, my colleagues and I voted to create a new water transportation advisory board, to give us and others in state government a ready resource of information from those whose job is tied to that industry.

  • Magistrates did show true leadership

    I agreed when  Jonna Priester wrote “ True leadership means doing that which is  right, though it may not be popular.” I believe true leadership was shown at the June 20th Henry County Fiscal Court meeting.

  • Column: Huge tax increases in the forecast for American families and small businesses

    During the early stages of a typhoon, the storm begins brewing offshore and out of sight.  It is not until the typhoon reaches the coastal shore that it takes full form and residents are forced to deal with such a disastrous storm, moving at speeds up to 200 miles per hour.  Once the storm hits the shore, it is only a matter of minutes, hours or days before the waves and wind, destroy homes, businesses and livelihoods.

  • Magistrates made the wrong call

    True leadership means doing that which is right, though it may not be popular.

    On Tuesday, June 20, members of the Henry County Fiscal Court missed a prime opportunity to display true leadership.

    At issue was whether or not the court would remove Roger Hartlage from the Henry County Planning and Zoning Commission. In April, Hartlage and the other members of SBH Properties received a notice of violation from the state that charged the group with having improper fill material on its property.

     

  • Shop locally with the Henry County Farmer’s Market

    The Henry County Farmer’s Market was founded on the principle of sharing. Producers in the county wanted to share their cropland, their hard work and the fruits of their labor with their friends and neighbors.

  • “Hearts of Grace” thank you

    The community wide “giveaway” outreach event on July 22 and 23rd in New Castle far surpassed the hopes and expectations of its sponsors.

  • Returning to the dinner table

    I’ve taken some ribbing recently from family members. It started a couple of months ago, when my husband noticed something was different.

    As we got ready to sit down at the table for dinner, he asked “So why are we eating at the table so much now?”

    Over the weekend, my own mother expressed some surprise that we were sitting down at the table to eat a late lunch I’d prepared.
