  • Annual festival draws thousands thanks to teamwork

    I was honored to serve as this year’s chairperson for the Henry County Harvest Showcase, now in its 17th year. We had a wonderful day Saturday for the showcase. The weather cooperated and we estimate that between 3,300 and 3,500 people attended the festival.

  • My nephew's reaction to a mugging was the worst

    When I attended college at the University of Cincinnati following the path of least resistance to earn my English degree with a minor in journalism, my fourth-floor walkup studio apartment stood just across from the campus in the crowded neighborhood at the corner of Clifton and McMillan streets. It featured a healthy business district that catered to students and fraternity members.

    The 17th annual Henry County Harvest Showcase will bring thousands into our community to celebrate and increase awareness of our agricultural heritage and our farming future.

  • Meaning of feminism is a full life

    By Jesse Harp, Intern

    “There’s nothing wrong with women having children, taking care of their homes and being domestic. That’s what they were created for, after all.”

    Something shattered inside of me when I heard these words come from a girl in one of my classes my first year of college. Suddenly every nuance of sexism I’ve experienced in my life was tossed onto the shore of my conscience by a new wave of passion.
