    Crying wolf

    Most of us remember the tale, “The Shepherd Boy and the Wolf,” perhaps the best known of Aesop’s Fables, which presents a cautionary note about the critical importance of preserving credibility.

    Unharvested tobacco

    Upon hearing about so much unharvested tobacco in Henry County, I thought it would be an interesting and informative issue to survey. Therefore, I took it upon myself to do independent research. I want to thank all those people who helped me by providing information that they knew or found out about. I wish to share my findings with other Henry Countians, so here are my results of that research.

  • Letter: Senior basket thank-you
  • Letter: A Christmas thank-you

    The spirit of Christmas was alive and well at the Campbellsburg Community Center on Dec. 24, Christmas Eve. I want to thank everyone who took any part in the event: those who donated food, those who donated money, those who cooked food, so many young people who came to serve the food and those who packed and drove meals to shut-ins. This Christmas dinner was a real community event and effort and showed how neighbors can really care about each other. I want to thank each and every one from the bottom of my heart.

  • Letter: School board appreciation month

     The school board members of both the Eminence Independent Schools (EIS) and Henry County Public Schools (HCPS) are responsible for our community’s most precious resource and the key to its future – our children and their educational opportunities. They are deserving of praise—not only for their work and their commitment to our students, but for their leadership.

  • Celebrate Recovery: Letter

    We are excited to announce that Celebrate Recovery will begin its third year of community services on Jan. 8 at the New Castle Baptist Church located at 47 East Cross Main, New Castle.

  • Letter: Rest in peace, Joe

    I heard of the passing of Joe Yates. Several years ago, the editor of the Henry County Local asked Joe Yates and I to write a biweekly colomn for the Local, to give our differing views. We had free reign to write our opposing views. Then-Editor Jonna Priester’s only request that we not argue back and forth.

    That never happened.

    We continued to write our columns until Joe was ready to call it quits and not having an opposing view, the columns came to an end. Too bad too, while Joe may not have gotten anything from my column (my assumption), I did from his.

  • 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.

  • Letter to the Editor - September 12, 2018

    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!
