Today's Opinions

  • Newsprint is alive and well — here’s proof

    Despite the doom and gloom predictions that print is dead, community newspapers like the Henry County Local are flourishing.
    But why?
    First and foremost, we are the only consistent local media presence in the county. While there are others who pop in and out when “big” news hits, we’re here with our readers week in and week out to bring you a variety of coverage, including the “big” story, and so much more.

  • Positive sign point to economic development

    “Site Selection” is not a magazine most of us would keep on our coffee table, but for those in government and business who track economic development, this publication is one not to be missed.
    Fortunately, it has had a lot of good things to say about Kentucky in recent years, and over the past two, it has awarded us its annual Governor’s Cup for having more major job announcements than any other state on a per capita basis.

  • What St. Catharine meant to The Berry Center

    After starting The Berry Center in 2011, the first project we took on was what became the Berry Farming Program at St. Catharine College, a school founded by The Dominican Sisters of Peace in Springfield in 1931.

  • Kentucky at forefront in hemp production

    As senators from Kentucky, we’ve been fortunate to meet many of the farmers who help make our state work. Agriculture is a vital part of Kentucky’s economy, and we’ve learned from Kentucky’s farmers that one way to keep our state’s agricultural sector growing is to explore new, viable cash crops for the state. This is why we’ve put our support behind expanding industrial hemp research.

  • DAVA honors vets

    DAVA honors vets

    The Henry County Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary held a countywide Memorial Day Service in honor of Henry County military personnel killed in action. For a second-time event, we had a great turnout and we appreciate everyone who took time from their holiday to honor our local heroes.

    During our program we read the names of each Henry Countian who was killed in action from World War I through Operation Desert Shield. If you know the names of other Henry County military personnel who were killed in action, please call (502) 222-4365.

  • Not in session, but work being done

    The General Assembly may be at its busiest during the first several months of the year, when the House and Senate are focused on passing new laws, but the summer and fall months are important as well to the legislative process.

  • Come on in, the water's fine (maybe)

    We were at a friend’s house over the weekend for a cookout. It was a beautiful day, although cloudy, but humidity was low and sitting outside was rather comfortable with a strong breeze carrying across the back patio.

    Despite the mild weather, the 3-year-old daughter of other friends who also came to the cookout immediately wanted to get in the above-ground pool just as soon as they arrived. She was warned that it was still early in the season and that it wasn’t a very warm day so the water would be pretty cold.
