  • Good to graduate, good to go?

    Graduating is weird. Seriously, it’s one of the most bizarre ceremonies we, as human beings take part in. We wear some ugly robes and hats, trudge across a stage, take a piece of rolled-up paper from some other robe-wearing goons and-voila!-you’re an adult.

  • We must invest in our community

    Scenic roads, beautiful landscapes, grazing cattle, friendly and hard-working people are just some of the reasons why I like living in Henry County.  Often we take for granted the many assets that this county has to offer, but if we want to bring more business into our county, we need to promote our county. All of us should have community investment in the future of our county’s growth.

  • Raising responsible children and youth

    All parents want their children to grow up to be responsible, self-sufficient adults, but the transition from childhood to adulthood—the teenage years—can be rocky for parents and children. It’s during this time that children often test parents’ limits and start requesting things like cell phones, later curfews and less adult supervision. This is also the time when many parents have to decide where they stand on many issues, financially and morally, and learn how to graciously and responsibly let go.

  • Henry County agriculture — by the numbers

    Folks, the results of the 2012 Census of Agriculture have just been released.

    I’ve had my own thoughts about how the new numbers might go, but it’s always good to work from the latest data, as reported to the National Agriculture Statistics Service by our landowners.

    The number of farms reported in 2012 was 869, down from 962 in the the 2007 Census, which bounced up from 883 in 2002. And while the average size of a farm didn’t change much, now 148 acres per farm compared to 152 in 2007, the big change is simply the number of acres in farmland.
