  • 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.

  • Honoring Henry County's Fallen Soldiers

    A countywide Memorial Day Service will be held at the Eminence Christian Church Monday, May 30, beginning at 10 a.m.

    The Henry County Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary is presenting this program in remembrance of Henry County’s fallen soldiers. We hope you will join us in honoring our neighbors who gave all in the service of our country.

    Last year, we had a great turnout. Please join us again on May 30 at the Eminence Christian Church.

     

  • The true nature of Bernie Sanders and Socialism

    Last week, I read an article in the Letter to the Editor section of the Henry County Local titled “Voting for Bernie.” 

    In this letter, the author tries to significantly downplay the true nature of “Democratic Socialism” and Bernie Sanders. The author compares Sen. Sanders to Franklin D. Roosevelt, saying Bernie’s policies would be similar to FDR’s New Deal. 

  • Thumbs up to EIS

    I would like to thank and commend Mr. Metcalfe and his students [at Eminence Independent Schools] for the projects they are doing at our cemetery. 

    It’s been long overdue and to think it took someone not born and raised here to see a reason to bring something together that has always been known as separate. This is a great teaching moment for the kids. It’s the kids who will learn from this because they are our future and that’s where change will come from.

    Well done and keep up the good work.

  • Jumping overboard to save one's life

    After preaching a particularly challenging sermon, I received the following text from a church member: “Your sermon made me uncomfortable today. Think I’m gonna have to switch churches so I can feel better.” 

    I understand my church member’s sentiment. Sometimes things hurt so badly and life is so stressful, we long for escape.   

  • Voting for Bernie

    I was pleased to see other folks in the county are familiar with Bernie Sanders.

    I have recognized that some folks are confused about Bernie’s identifying as a “Democratic Socialist.”  Please do not be fooled into substituting “communism” for “socialism.”
