• Letter to the Editor - Nov. 7, 2018

    At our meeting on Oct. 22, the Eminence Council of Churches made the difficult decision to suspend our annual Thanksgiving dinner/fundraiser this year due to scheduling conflicts.

    The dinner has traditionally been set for the Sunday before Thanksgiving, but with the busyness of the holiday season and family commitments by clergy and congregations alike, it became evident that we simply didn’t have the resources available this year.

    I want to say a big thank you to Judge Brent, the Fiscal Court and our hard-working road department crew for the new bridge on Wolf Pen Road. It’s a big improvement and now we can feel secure that our school buses, garbage trucks and delivery vans can cross safely. Good work on a small budget!

    We would like to take this opportunity to thank those who helped make our Aug. 18 parade a success. First to the Henry County Sheriff’s Department for traffic control, the New Castle Fire Department, the Henry County High School Marching Band, to all political candidates, Our Best and all parade participants, we say thank you.

    Thank you all for hosting the Back to School Bash (Henry County Baptist Association) and for the generous school supplies that were donated by the churches and businesses to our family. We really appreciate everything and it saved us from the crowds and mess at the stores for school supplies. We even were fed free with hotdogs, chips and drinks, too. Thank you to all that donated the school supplies and food. It was much appreciated, and we didn’t expect my son’s school supplies list to be completed. We are so thankful for the community’s generosity.

  • Letter: Supports McBurney for magistrate

    I am writing today to tell you a little bit about a friend of mine who is running for Magistrate in the 4th District — Hugh McBurney.
    We have been friends for about 17 years now. He stays up on all the current issues that affect we the people of Henry County. He has been attending the Henry County Fiscal Court meetings for as long as I have known him. He has been seen on the local news and in our “Henry County Local” fighting for issues that concern the people of this county.

  • Letters: Pension rhetoric is wrong

    Park does not care for the pension rhetoric
    The rhetoric this past week has been fascinating. The passage of Senate Bill 151 has been labeled “unethical,” developed in “secret meetings” and passed in the dead of the night without actuarial analysis or any time to read the bill. Some have even stated that attaching Senate Bill 1 to Senate Bill 151 was illegal. None of this is true.

  • Letters: Thanks to the mystery clean up men

    In this world of bad happenings, there are still good deeds that need to be recognized.

  • Letter: Grateful that a trooper stopped to help

    Grateful that a trooper stopped to help
    On March 14, I was on my way to work and my car blew a tire. My brother came to change my tire. As I watched I thought of many people who have no one to help them.
    In a stormy situation, God can come to our rescue. For me, I think, that was not only my brother, but a Kentucky State Police officer Sgt. Mitchell. Mr. Mitchell pulled up to see if I needed any help — what a blessing for him to be stationed at Campbellsburg post!
    God always has a plan and for that I am grateful.
