Today's Opinions

  • No fair, Pleasureville

    Oh, Pleasureville.

    I can’t say after Monday night’s meeting that I’m surprised, really.

    Disappointed, but not surprised. And that, in itself, is a fairly sad commentary on what happened.

    You see, you had a chance to do something good. You had a chance to do something that really matters. You had a chance to lead the way in Henry County.

    But you sat on your hands, looking quietly and somewhat awkwardly at the table while the motion to approve a fairness ordinance died for lack of a second.

  • 1838: 50 acres of land bought for $200

    By Hammer Smith

    Years Ago

    At the November session of the Henry County Court it was ordered that John Owens, Robert Webb, James Dunn and Daniel Sandford or any three of them being first duly sworn view and mark an alteration proposed by John Violett in the road from Vanhorn’s            to intersect the Sullinger Warehouse Road.  The examination was to be done fairly and impartially and the convenience and inconvenience listed in the report of the committee to the court.

  • County update: Economic development

    By John Logan Brent
    Henry County Judge-Executive

    Like most rural Kentucky communities, Henry County’s local economy is very diversified. Agriculture, construction, retail, and industry make up the bulk of our private sector economy. The state of Kentucky and a majority of counties, including ours, have economic development programs in some form. Though the state and counties use the term “economic development” in a broad sense, it almost always means the recruitment and expansion of industry.

  • I need to work harder at connecting

    This was written during the autumn of 1988.

    At times over the past several years, I’ve attempted to square up the rounded corners of my life, to clean up the accumulation of broken, dead limbs in the yard, the coating of dust on the top of the door that never gets wiped off.

  • Domestic violence is a nationwide problem

    On a typical day across the country, our domestic violence programs help more than 64,000 victims, 1,100 of whom live right here in Kentucky.

    But lack of funds, space and personnel mean another 10,000 have to wait for the services they need, including almost 90 here in the commonwealth.

  • Run as fast as you can to the hills

    I started to wonder if I would get a chance to write another column on here to you. There’s been so much politicking on this page I thought perhaps we should rename it ‘The Podium’ or ‘The Primary for The Primary’ instead of ‘Opinion.’
