    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

    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.

  • Republican majority rushes to pass bills

    I fought hard during this first week of the 2017 session of the Kentucky General Assembly to protect the interests of Kentucky’s working families against a rising tide of wealthy corporate interests, but in the end, our best efforts were blocked by the new ruling majority in the Kentucky House of Representatives. 

  • Multiple acts of violence shock the county

    I have never been in a physical fight, never struck another human being in anger.

    The closest I came to doing so was when I was in middle school. I had a crush on a boy that rode my bus. He was older and I had no chance with him, but at the time, he was the love interest of my life.

  • Interim used to better prepare for new legislative session

    When it comes to the legislative process, most of the public’s attention is understandably focused on the first several months of the year, when the General Assembly is in session and new laws are adopted.
