  • Where is the creative thinking?

    Watching Judge Brent at the Sept. 20 Campbellsburg City Council meeting was interesting.  He was there to request funds from Campbellsburg for the further development of the Kentucky 55 Campbellsburg Industrial Park.  Perhaps if he had not allocated so many funds to “Brent Park” he would not have  had to request funds from the city council.

  • Re-elect County Judge John Logan Brent

    On Nov. 2, 2010 the citizens of Henry County will be electing a county judge executive. It has been my honor and privilege to work with our current county judge executive. While mayor of the city of Campbellsburg Judge Brent worked with me in securing a grant in excess of 2.5 million dollars for the infrastructure plan for our city. Our frequent trips to Frankfort gave me first hand knowledge that Judge Brent knew his way around Frankfort.

  • It’s time for Whatley to go

    In April 2010, Campbellsburg made a mistake. A big one. One that’s already cost them more money in legal fees than they spent from January 2008 to December 2009, and cost them dearly in terms of reputation.

    They, or more specifically Mayor Jan Fletcher, hired Crestwood attorney Graham Whatley to represent the city.

    Twice Whatley was publicly rude and disrespectful toward a duly elected member of the council, practically accusing her of a horrendous crime simply because her husband happens to be the fire chief.

  • “Here we go again”

    Mayors running for city council and city council members running for mayor. Sounds like a revolving door of the same ideas and the same intrusive rules and regulations. I see no change at all. As I said before the last election we need new people with new ideas.

  • Support LeeAnn Armstrong

    It’s been a wonderful summer here in Eminence. The activities - Music on Main, DJ in the Park, movie night and even cruising - have been a perfect time to get out of the house and socialize for all ages.

    We are fortunate to have a city council that isn’t satisfied with just being a city, but wants to build community among the residents. The planning and execution of these activities deserves our gratitude and support.

  • Few states can match Kentucky’s automotive record

    When it comes to the automotive industry, few states can match Kentucky’s record.

    Our association with Henry Ford, for example, stretches back almost a century, when in 1912 he opened a sales and service office in Louisville.  A few years later, that city was producing 7,000 vehicles, and a few years after that it became home to the country’s first modern assembly plant.  Now, Louisville’s two production facilities – one that began in 1955 and the other in 1969 – are regularly among the company’s leaders.

  • ‘The money is, it’s crazy.’

    John Suter typically is low key in meetings of the Campbellsburg City Council. He certainly participates in discussions about the city’s decisions, but Monday night, he expressed his own frustration at the direction the city has taken

    When he spoke his mind Monday night, it was concise, and pointed, and seemed to sum up the council’s frustration.

    “The money is, it’s crazy. I just want to let you know, I’ve had a lot of people wanting to know who’s running the city and what’s going on. It’s an embarrassment to me. "

  • Where were the health department employees?

    Thank you to governor Steve Beshear for the commonwealth’s contribution of monies for the new Henry County Health Department.

    There was, however, a group of people missing from the ground breaking ceremony on Thursday, Sept. 9. As Judge-Executive John Logan Brent and the Governor, turned over a spade of dirt, did anyone ask where the Henry County Health Department staff were?
