  • Recapping 14 years of roadside cleanups

    By John Logan Brent, Henry County Judge-Executive

    On Saturday, Nov. 5, more than 40 non-profit and school groups came together in a coordinated effort to pick up our county’s roadways. 

    The result was 210 miles of roadway cleaned and 1,215 bags of trash picked-up. 

  • Letters to the Editor, November 2, 2016

    Vote for Shroyer

    This will be an unusual request from a running candidate. Tom Shroyer has continuously shown strength in his ability and commitment to give back to this community.  Tom has an inner drive to ensure that he completes any endeavor for which he involves himself. He is most certainly one to cross his “T’s” and dot his “I’s” before retiring any project. This man embraces his weaknesses and makes them his strength.

  • Election from a Biblical view

    It’s time to look at this election from a biblical view, not from a party view or your own point of view.

    This view is from the only true and living God, the god of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who is the Lord Jesus Christ.

    If you are a truly committed Christian, listen to this warning. If we choose the wrong candidate, this country will fall. If you are not a Christian, read this letter and take it seriously.

  • Thank you for the honor, it's what we do every day

    On Thanksgiving Day, families across the country will come together around dining room tables. Many will share a bountiful feast and give thanks for many blessings. What better time than the month of November to also give thanks for our customers? 

  • Kentucky's Forests

    Over the last 50 years, usually around the time fall colors are in full bloom, state and federal officials dedicate a week to highlight all of the products our forests provide.

    Kentucky, of course, has been blessed more than most states.  Trees cover nearly half of our 25 million acres, and we are among the nation’s leaders – and first in the South – when it comes to hardwood production. 

  • 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.
