Today's Opinions

  • 'Flying jewels of the natural world'

    I appreciated a recent Henry County Local editorial that addressed the plight of monarch butterflies and their survival as a species.

    Over the last few decades their numbers declined considerably, due mainly to their host plant, milkweed, disappearing from the landscape. Without these plants, monarchs have no place to lay their eggs. The larvae must have milkweed to survive because they can eat nothing else. 

  • More gun control not answer to school shootings

    I caught myself using the phrase, “back in my day,” more than once this past week.

    During a conversation with a 20-something, she mentioned she actually had nightmares and was terrified of the idea of a school shooting when she was in high school.

  • Supporting Edelen

    ould reelect Adam Edelen to State Auditor because he has vigorously defended the public’s trust and exposed government corruption.

    Auditor Edelen has an impressive record of standing up for all Kentuckians by shedding light on the dark places of our politics.  He has protected our students through investigations into abuse like my home public school district in Shelby County where his office uncovered details of nearly $600,000 stolen through the former payroll manager.

  • Get out the vote

    Hundreds of thousands of young Americans are serving our military to preserve our way of life, and yet fewer and fewer of our citizens are participating in our democracy. November 3 is general election day when Kentuckians will be selecting candidates for governor, commissioner of agriculture and other constitutional officers. Members of Henry County Farm Bureau hope every voter will make their voices heard by casting informed votes for our government leaders.

  • Consider voting Republican

    It was announced last week, that the 4th Congressional District, of which Henry County is a part, has become the first congressional district with a Republican majority.  People are frustrated with the state of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

  • Thanks for ag tag support

    Wow!  The news is in!  Ag Tag donations were up 9 percent from last year to 25 percent of all the farm tags renewed in this county.  The Henry County FFA is so thankful for each one of you that made the choice to donate to support your local and state FFA programs in addition to 4-H and Kentucky Proud.  

  • A plan to defeat the zombie hordes

    Editor’s note: This column contains gory themes meant for mature readers during this Halloween season.

    Fans probably won’t appreciate this thought, but Rick Grimes, Glenn and Maggie, Carol and Daryl and the rest of the telegenic zombie apocalypse survivors are idiots.

  • Not about parties

    I’m not a liberal/progressive democrat, I’m not a republican. My party is the Watchmen Party. Read Ezekiel chapter 33 in the Bible.

    It’s not about what party you’re in. If you are a godly man or woman, one day you will stand before the Lord Jesus and you will have to give an account on what you do or say.

    We need to put men or women in office who will stand up for our Christian faith.
