Today's Opinions

  • Fresh face joins Local for the summer

    As luck would have it, dog hugging, blanket fort-building and antique shopping are not majors offered at Campbellsville University, where I go to school. I’m proficient in all of these things; however, my natural love for writing and people led me to choose mass communications with an emphasis in journalism and an English minor.

  • To District 4 Voters:

    I want to take this opportunity to thank those of you who supported me in the recent primary election. It is both humbling and gratifying for me to know that people cast their votes on my behalf. Thank you for your words of encouragement and phone calls. Thank you to those allowing me to place my signs on your properties and a special thank you for those who made contributions to my campaign fund. You are all so very much appreciated.

  • Addressing obesity rates in Kentucky

    To get a better understanding of just how prevalent obesity has become in America, consider that no state had more than 20 percent of its adult population fall in that category in 1996.  Today, no state has less.

  • America meant to be Christian nation

    In December 1791, the Bill of Rights was ratified by the states. Sixty-three years later, the establishment of religion was explained in Congress. 

    The Supreme Court of 1962 got it wrong. 

    America as a nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and it will not survive if we derive from that foundation.

  • Thanks for support

    The Henry County FFA Chapter and Alumni Chapter would like to sincerely give a special thanks to our Henry County community. We have been blessed with a supportive crowd for Burger Bash this year.

    We’d like to thank all general volunteers, the cooks and persons/businesses who donated their time and items to allow Burger Bash to be a hit yet again. 

    The silent and live auction went great.

  • New Castle Patriotic Festival coming up

    On Saturday, June 11, the New Castle Patriotic Festival will feature a great line up of musical entertainment, food, vendors booths, the Kentucky Historymobile and more.

    We will be recognizing the 75-year anniversary of the United States entry into World War II by honoring WWII Veterans. The Grand Marshals will be Henry County Korean War vets. If you know of one, please contact Brenda Doane at (502) 550-5664 so we can honor them.

  • Plant milkweed to support monarchs

    When what seemed like our first taste of early spring arrived the weekend of May 14 with highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s — freaky because we’re halfway through May — I labored to add about 30 flowers to my pollinator garden.
