  • Spreading a bit of sunshine

    John Logan Brent

    County Judge Executive

    If you are like me, you are ready for some sunshine. Every time I read Jon Park’s articles in this paper I see the need for a whole lot of sunshine.

    In last week’s article he likened the “would be” economic impact for New Castle of the proposed 37,000 square foot, 20 something bathroom, $12 million plus bonded justice center to what is happening in Eminence due to CVS. The projects are apples to oranges.

  • Take me out to the ball game

    Do not tell me it’s just a game, where grown men try to hit a ball by swinging at it with a rounded stick. Baseball has been part of my life as far back as I can remember. It is my sport and I will defend it.

  • Economic development is Eminence's future

    In 2011, the Henry County Fiscal Court, in a great effort led by Magistrate Nick Hawkins, was considering a new justice center for the county.

    A who’s who of Henry County notables, then, Chief Deputy Clerk Gina Lyle, Attorney Joe Yates, Ricky Doyle, Justin Atchison, and New Castle Mayor Denny Benham all spoke in favor of the project.

  • State legislators want to work for your benefit

    If the state’s budget is the most important legislation that the General Assembly approves every two years, enacting the state’s road plan is a close second.

    As with the budget, the goal is to find the best use for a limited amount of resources.  This is an area where Kentucky generally gets high marks, however, based on an annual national study by the Reason Foundation that ranks the quality of each state’s highway system.  We came in 14th overall last year, with no state having a better quality of rural interstates.

    New contact for History Center

  • I regret the resignation of a great resource

    I just found out Monday that the Henry County History Center has lost a great resource.

    The great Hammer Smith has resigned from his position at the History Center.

    Yes, the Hammer Smith who received the Patrick Henry Award just this past summer. Yes, the Hammer Smith who was recognized by everyone from the judge-executive to one of my great writing heroes Byron Crawford.

    I can’t tell you what happened, but I do intend to find out and inform everyone about what happens next to the Henry County History Center.
