Today's Opinions

  • Asking for prayers and support

    At the latest quarterly dinner for the Henry County Help Center Jan. 19, Joe Durbin, founder and director of the food bank, announced that the doctors had found a mass on his lung.

    Tests are still being run, and we expect to know more soon.

    I would like to see each of you to send him a card or note to keep him positive — send it to 4844 North Main St., Eminence, Ky. 40019, but most of all, please pray for him.

  • Taking a look at road aid

    It was just a few weeks ago that we learned the 2017 legislative agenda for our cities in Kentucky from the Kentucky League of Cities. At the top of the list? A proposed change in how local road aid is distributed between rural and urban areas.

  • Active session

    On Jan. 3, we officially began the 2017 Session of the Kentucky General Assembly and we hit the ground running. Speaker-elect Jeff Hoover was officially sworn in and became Speaker Hoover and we welcomed the new House majority. Two new members were also sworn into the Senate.

  • Commitment to quality pays off for newspaper

    Moving from third place to first place in one year’s time is a thrilling accomplishment in any arena. To do so in the field of journalism is particularly satisfying.

    After sealing a third place finish in last year’s Excellence in Kentucky Newspapers contest through the Kentucky Press Association, your Henry County Local claimed First Place in General Excellence among like-sized weekly newspapers across the state.

  • Open invitation to Celebrate Recovery

    Open invitation to Celebrate Recovery

    On Oct. 4, 2016, Henry County offered new a recovery program for those that are struggling with addiction called Celebrate Recovery.  Discussions of starting a Celebrate Recovery program began in April of 2016 and many of you may have heard about this new program.  As someone involved with the program, I felt led to update the residence of Henry County regarding the successes.

  • Jumping into the new year with the Chamber

    I sure do love our county!  I am meeting more people and leaning more about our county each day.  We have so much to offer here and I hope to be able to bring more awareness of our businesses, community programs/events and local resources to each of our members and our community.

    Kicking off our 2017 with Henry County community events: The Theatre Downstream will present  “The Miracle Worker,” the inspirational story of Helen Keller learning to speak.   

  • Governor's actions jeopardize educations

    As the husband of a University of Louisville student, I can’t help feeling anxious about the recent threat to the school’s accreditation.

    In fact, I may well feel the most upset out of everyone I know. Any time the subject comes up, those I’ve been speaking to — reasonable people all — completely discount that the issue could get more out of hand than it already has.

  • Expressing gratitude

    Our community is blessed. We have two successful public school systems with incredibly engaged students in grades K through 12, and a team of professional teachers and administrators who strive daily to provide an excellent education to benefit this community for generations to come.
