  • Wildcat golfers fall to Trimble, Gallatin

    The Cats had improved over the first weeks of the season, going from shooting in the 190s to shooting in the low 180s, but the trend ended against the Raiders on Sept. 10.

    “It was a little setback today,” coach Steve Galyon said. “Team scores have been coming down every time so you expect it to happen when young players are learning.

    Alex Hadden led the Cats with a 42, while Dillon Allen had his best round of the year with a 44. Isaac Klempner shot 52 and Jakob Beckley rounded out the scoring with a 53.

  • This GOP isn’t your grandmother’s party

    By Jon Park


    If there is anything we are learning as we study the last few years, it is not that the Republican Party needs to change or adapt to a changing world, no, it is that we need to do a better job of getting our message out. Henry County is a prime example of that.

    As I talked to Henry Countians at festivals and fairs this summer, we are not that far apart in our political ideology. Henry Countians are conservative.

    Joe Yates is my attorney and friend. Sometimes friends don’t agree on things. Joe and I are like oil and water when it comes to our political views.

    I have been reading Joe’s columns since they began appearing in the Henry County Local. During that time I have found myself disagreeing with him more than not. After last week’s column I decided to write a rebuttal.

  • Civility is important everywhere

     By Lance Minnis

    An incident occurred today that really got me thinking about how we behave.

    I know some will scoff and call me a fuddy duddy or worse, and some may get mad because they see themselves in what I am about to say. Heck, I see myself in it at times, which only makes the point stronger.
