  • The best protection against a rigged election

    Major newspapers across the country have made their endorsements in the Nov. 8 presidential election, and now the Henry County Local wants to offer its own recommendation to all the registered voters out there.

    About 150 newspapers with a circulation of 20,000 or more have declared their support for the Democrat, Hillary Clinton, in the race for the highest office in the land over her Republican rival, Donald Trump, according to articles posted on the “Business Insider” website.

  • Please 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.

    Nov. 8 is General Election Day when Kentuckians will be selecting the President of the United States, United States Senator, United States House of Representatives and Kentucky’s General Assembly members. 

  • In support of Goodwin

    After more than 10 years as the family court judge for Oldham, Henry and Trimble counties, I accepted a position in Governor Bevin’s administration.  

    Upon recommendation from a local committee, Governor Bevin selected Doreen Goodwin as the new family court judge.  This was a strong and positive selection.

  • Community lost a good man in Norm

    I only met Norman Wood once, nearly 40 years after he created and launched the pre-eminent local grocery store. But it only took that one encounter to understand the most important parts of his life.

    He loved his wife Sally — the Pleasureville girl that he first met at the lunch counter in Cincinnati. Her mother Peggy Jones, who also worked at the lunch counter, evidently suspected that Sally would like the up-and-coming A&P manager who had a good job and income with a large corporation.

  • Hope I live long enough to be called feisty

    I recently had a delightful visit with Mrs. Aline Stivers, a resident of Twin Oaks Assisted Living. Aline welcomed me into her apartment, which was neat as a pin by the way, and we talked for about an hour on a subject Mrs. Stivers found a little uncomfortable – herself!

    Aline will turn 100 years old this Friday, and with 365,000 days under her belt, she has lived a lifetime and then some. So settling on which details of her life to share with me might have proved daunting. 

  • A return to scripture

    There was once a king named Josiah. Josiah ascended to the throne at an incredibly young age and was grandson to two of the most wicked kings to ever rule over God’s people. Nonetheless, the Lord had great plans for Josiah’s life.
