• Services for veterans

    On behalf of the patients and staff of the Robley Rex VA Medical Center, I am writing to take this opportunity to introduce Richard Hayes, an approved volunteer for the medical center. Richard Hayes has accepted a position as community outreach volunteer, working closely with the Hospice and Palliative Care and our veterans served by this very important program.

  • Republican caucus nears

    With the Iowa Presidential Caucus completed, and the announcement last week that Sen. Rand Paul has suspended his presidential campaign, we have received calls regarding The Republican Party of Kentucky’s Presidential Caucus. 

    The Kentucky Presidential Caucus will be held 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 5. In Henry County, the Caucus will be held at the 4-H Building at the Henry County Fairgrounds. 

  • Need community input

    The Health and Wellness Coalition of Henry County invite you to our regularly scheduled meeting on Feb. 18 at 10:30 a.m. to noon at the 4-H building located on the Henry County Fairgrounds, 1106 Castle Highway.  

    We have transformed from the Henry County Diabetes Coalition and hope to encourage the same type of education and resources that we have provided for diabetes, as well as prevention of chronic disease by learning about health lifestyles.

  • Letters to the Editor, Jan. 13, 2016

    Recognizing the work of the school boards

  • Retirees to rally

    As members of the General Assembly return to Frankfort for the 2016 Regular Session, they will find themselves facing a multitude of challenges, one of the more critical being pension funding.  Legislative action in the 2013 Regular Session provided the framework for funding the plans managed by the Kentucky Retirement Systems (KRS).  Public employee (and teacher) pensions will require tens of millions of new dollars in the budget simply to stem the erosion of funding levels.  

  • Right place, right time, wrong attitude

    A recent voters’ decision allowing Henry County  “wet” status was a countywide progressive movement mandating county leadership to take another look at our economic development policies and attitude.  The current negative attitude has guided Henry County to higher taxes, depleting savings and impaired services.

  • Disappointed with comments

    I am extremely disappointed by the comments made by our judge-executive in the article about the alcohol vote from the Dec. 23rd edition of the Local.
