Today's Opinions

  • Thanks for support

    I would like to thank everyone for their support of the Henry County Memorial Day Program. This is a very special time when we gather to honor Henry County’s fallen soldiers. Without the assistance of many this program would not be possible. 

    I would like to especially thank the “Henry County Local,” Eminence Christian Church, Prewitt’s Funeral Home and all those who participated. 

  • Who pays for conservation?

    As co-chair of the Kentucky Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus, I find it fitting to take a moment to extend an enormous debt of gratitude to our hunters and anglers. The critical contributions that these sportsmen and women make to our economy and professional fish and wildlife management in the Bluegrass State ensure that we will enjoy access to our hunting and angling traditions now and into the future.

  • Cup of Joe from Kentucky's former state tree?

    If the Leadership Henry County Class of 2017 is successful with its beautification planting and education project at the recreational and services park — and I have no reason to think it won’t be — one of the few plants named after Kentucky will soon grow there.

    Because of the project and because of where we are, I wanted to take a closer look at the Kentucky coffeetree species, and I discovered it’s a pretty quirky life form.

  • Leave baby deer alone

    Every year people find baby fawns in their yards, parks and cemeteries. So far this week the Oldham County Animal Shelter has received three calls about fawns being abandoned. We’re such close neighbors, I know this is a problem in Henry as well as Oldham.

  • Veterans fishing trip

    The Robley Rex VA Medical Center in Louisville teamed up with Henry County local veteran volunteers on May 20, Armed Forces Day, to establish the first Veterans’ Fish Outing held at Lake Jericho. 

    VA Director Martin Traxler brought veterans from Louisville to participate in a fishing trip that would allow them to temporarily escape to the country for a little rest and relaxation.

  • Laws passed to honor Kentucky's veterans

    When I try to think of everything our military men and women have given us as Americans, I quickly realize the error of my ways. 

    It’s impossible to account for everything our military men and women have done for us. From those first moments in the battle for freedom on colonial soil to the deserts of the Middle East today, their amazing acts of selflessness for this nation has been constant. 

  • Commonwealth to celebrate 225 years

    On June 1, the Commonwealth of Kentucky will celebrate the 225-year anniversary of its admittance as a state into the Union.  Originally a part of Virginia known as “the Kentucky County,” it became the 15th state of this nation in 1792.  

  • Help prevent dog bites for postal carriers

    In April, the United States Postal Service promoted National Dog Bite Prevention Week. I am writing to ask our customers to extend their efforts and help make this “National Dog Bite Prevention Year.”
