    November brings cooler temperatures and the first hints that winter is just around the corner. The month also contains my favorite holiday —Thanksgiving. It has been my favorite holiday since I was a child; and I had fully intended for this article to focus on my joy of Thanksgiving.

    As I wrote this, my primary emotion was not thanksgiving. I’m not sure there was a primary emotion. Instead of one emotion, I was experiencing several—anger, fear, anxiety, sadness and disgust, to name a few.

  • Editor's picks: Fall's top performers

    I’ve watched scores of high school athletic contests over the past three months and seen every high school athlete in Henry County compete, not just this year, but over several years. With that being said, I would like to indulge in talking about my favorite performers during the 2018 fall sports season.

    This is not an objective list. There is no way to do that. This is a list that is based on what I like to see when I go to high school athletic competitions. Some of those traits include athleticism, effort and sacrificing for the team.

  • New e-commerce site has something ‘4’ every pet

    Campbellsburg residents Jackie Woodward and fiancé Dale Horn have more in common than love. In August, the couple opened All Pets 4 U, a new e-commerce website that sells pet supplies. 

    The duo hopes to give popular pet website Chewy a run for the money from Campbellsburg—Woodward conducts all research and marketing and “the computer work” and Horn “does most of the work,” she said.

    Both co-owners are widowed, grew up on farms and love animals.
