Today's Opinions

  • Support the local economy with the Henry County Farmers Market

    Have you seen those bumper stickers that say, “I farm. You eat.”?

    I started seeing them several years ago and thought it sounded like farmers were being a bit egotistical or self-important. But that was before I tried my hand at it.

    Before I stopped working full-time about six years ago, I was an avid and loyal customer of the Henry County Farmers Market. Working as many hours as I did prohibited me from having my own garden, but I desperately wanted fresh local produce in the summer, especially garden-grown tomatoes.

    Thief on the loose in Eminence

    We had rented a house on 578 Sulphur Avenue in Eminence. We were in the process of taking the old fence down around the house and putting a new wooden fence up.

    We had laid the old metal gate to the fence in our yard to wake up the next morning, to find somebody had come into our yard and stole the gate with the post attached.

    If somebody needed it that bad, all they had to do was ask!

    I do not steal and don’t like or appreciate people who do!

  • Hey Henry County, they're talking about you

    Are you one of those people whose ears burn when others mention you in conversation? Does that same weird sensation extend to the times when you hear somebody talking about your locality?

    In my case, somebody mentioning my birthplace of Evansville, Ind., can still perk up my ears, even after 20 years of being gone.

    President’s orders don’t sit well

    A recent Letter to the Editor extolled the virtues of an unproven Democratic Party Senatorial candidate, while bashing her opponent.

    At this point I believe it is important to state I am a registered Democrat, union member, and former union lobbyist. Union lobbyists and Republicans don’t normally agree on anything, so why would I take issue with a letter bashing Republicans and elevating Democrats?

  • Magical, mysterious traffic jams

    Have you ever been stuck in traffic? I don’t mean that you were forced to go 55 in a 65. I’m talking about being really stuck. I mean, the car is parked, locked and you’re out on the side of the interstate cursing your luck and calling your boss to beg his understanding.

    Campbellsburg Day a success

    The City of Campbellsburg would like to thank everyone who came out to Campbellsburg Day on Saturday June, 21st. Even though it was hot, we had a wonderful day.

    Our parade was phenomenal and we cannot begin to thank each and every one of you who were part of our parade. You know who you are and without you our parade would not have been successful, so thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

  • The mess in the middle east

    Mark Fassio

    Guest Columnist

    A few weeks ago the Local published a piece I wrote about the Russian power-grab of Crimea and its fomenting of unrest in Ukraine. With all the attention now ongoing in Iraq and Syria, I thought I’d try to explain what’s going on, and why. (My first region of study in the military was the MidEast, and I deployed there twice my career. This is déjà vu all over again.)

    McConnell at center of dysfunction

    It isn’t a surprise that Jon Park would take to the pages of this paper to distort and mislead residents of Henry County on Alison Lundergan Grimes’ candidacy for U.S. Senate. After all, Park’s candidate – Senator Mitch McConnell – has no record to run on at all.

    But let’s take a look at the unsubstantiated arguments made and the very important issues conveniently ignored.
