  • Tips for taking your child to the doctor

    Doctor’s visits can be a daunting task for parents and kids alike. Caring for children is a privilege that also comes with the challenge of making office visits as pleasant as possible for all involved. There are many ways that you can help your child have a more successful visit.

  • Spring is a great time to be a blood donor

    Get rooted in the Red Cross this spring. Donate blood and become part of its ever growing family tree; join about 3.3 million blood donors nationwide in a lifesaving cause.

    “Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood,” Tim Ryerson, CEO of the River Valley Blood Services Region said. The Red Cross must collect enough blood donations every day to meet the needs of cancer patients, trauma victims, organ transplant recipients, premature babies with complications, sickle cell disease patients and others.

  • The female pharmacist in small town Kentucky

    Lindsey Seel

    My husband and I joke that I was always a small town country girl that just happened to be born in a big city and raised on the road while following my Navy Dad to five states and two foreign countries.

    Now, as the pharmacist at Bluegrass Drug Center in Campbellsburg, and living among my husband’s family in Madison, IN, after 27 years I finally feel like I’m where I was always meant to be.

  • Divide and conquer strategy blurs vision

    Average Joe

    A nice fellow has been traveling around the county lately, soliciting the assistance of others in helping those who are unable to help themselves. I intend to support his cause. I have seen his presentation twice—it is a gentle, soft-sell pitch in which he asks for our help. During both presentations he used the phrase “this is not a hand out.”

  • No budget, but several new laws will benefit Kentucky

    Traditionally, the last day of a legislative session is set aside just to consider any vetoes the governor may make.  Recently, however, the General Assembly has also used the time to wrap up a few lingering issues, and this year is no different.

  • Letter to the editor

    AG Jack Conway not representing people

    In 2004 Kentucky voters voted overwhelmingly to amend the Kentucky constitution to protect the historic definition of marriage. The amendment reads:

    “Only a marriage between one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in Kentucky. A legal status identical or substantially similar to that of marriage for unmarried individuals shall now be valid or recognized.”

  • Fighting libraries is counterintuitive

    If I were to take a poll of all of Kentucky, I wonder how many people would tell me that they had never used a library for anything. My guess is very few. Libraries are the sort of institutions that you use without ever realizing how important they are, and how strange life would be if they weren’t there.

  • Goodbyes are tough, but not all bad

    I can’t believe I have written here for two years. Sometimes it seems like yesterday and other days, especially when my colleague Sports Editor Greg Woods is around, it seems longer.

    I have always strived to be a better writer, a better journalist. Coming to the Henry County Local has helped me grow.

    Circumstances out of my control like deadlines, staffing issues, and sometimes fully through my own faults, have caused me to not always put out my best writing. Sometimes my appetite for a good story outweighed what was realistically on my plate.
