In the late 1990s, the state rolled out a simple but effective campaign summarized by two words: “Education pays.”
That popular slogan came on the heels of a landmark overhaul of our public postsecondary schools and the creation of such programs as KEES, the lottery-based college scholarships that high school students earn with good grades, and “Bucks for Brains,” which added hundreds of millions of state and private dollars to our university research budgets.
Even though we don’t have a shopping mall in Henry County, you have the opportunity to purchase those unique one-of-a-kind gifts just around the corner by attending the 23rd annual Holiday Bazaar on Saturday, Nov. 14, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Henry County 4-H/Fairgrounds Building.
Shopping locally also helps to keep those dollars circulating in our own local economy, plus it will save on your gas bill and lower the stress of driving in all that Louisville traffic.

The Henry County Senior Citizens group would like to thank each and every one who has supported us over the years — you all have been fantastic.
As you know, we no longer ask for donations for the seniors from anyone. So, if someone approaches you for a donation in the name of the senior citizens, please keep in mind they are not a member of our group.
Televisions and their stands, chests of drawers, refrigerators, stoves... we all have them. But did you know all of them could pose serious danger to your children, if they are not properly secured?
This is especially true for those who have toddlers or young children who love to climb and explore.
