  • The Local: Building on standard of excellence

    You are reading an excellent newspaper.

    Each year, the Kentucky Press Association (KPA) hosts a statewide contest, Excellence in Newspapers, that honors reporters, editors, photographers and graphic designers in several categories. Newspapers are grouped by size into different divisions, then each entry is judged by out-of-state professionals who name the winners.

    In our division, the Henry County Local won third place overall in General Excellence, thanks to the individual awards earned by the editorial staff.

  • Naming fathers of political parties can be tricky

    By Joe Yates

    Gather ‘round, folks, it’s time for birthday trivia!

    Who said, “Labor is prior to and independent of capital…capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration,” ?

    Karl Marx, you say? Nope. Lenin? Wrong again. Try our birthday boy, Abraham Lincoln, in his first state of the union address.

  • Campbellsburg's decision

    C’burg’s decision
    Before I moved to Campbellsburg 11 years ago, I researched the town online and found the community I wanted to locate to. Democratic voting, liberal thinking small town with a sprinkling of diversified ethnic mix, I found my home online and moved my family in.
    As a Democrat, I was proud to endorse Obama for president and proudly had an election sign put up in my front yard.

    The five board members of the Eminence Independent Schools and the five board members of the Henry County Board of Education oversee budgets, make tough decisions, maintain the upkeep of our schools, and ensure academic excellence for all students. They also make it a priority that each individual child, in the Henry County and Eminence Independent district, gets what he or she needs to successfully learn in school and beyond. All that is done in the face of shrinking state and federal dollars for education.
