• Honoring Henry County's Fallen Soldiers

    A countywide Memorial Day Service will be held at the Eminence Christian Church Monday, May 30, beginning at 10 a.m.

    The Henry County Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary is presenting this program in remembrance of Henry County’s fallen soldiers. We hope you will join us in honoring our neighbors who gave all in the service of our country.

    Last year, we had a great turnout. Please join us again on May 30 at the Eminence Christian Church.


  • The true nature of Bernie Sanders and Socialism

    Last week, I read an article in the Letter to the Editor section of the Henry County Local titled “Voting for Bernie.” 

    In this letter, the author tries to significantly downplay the true nature of “Democratic Socialism” and Bernie Sanders. The author compares Sen. Sanders to Franklin D. Roosevelt, saying Bernie’s policies would be similar to FDR’s New Deal. 

  • Thumbs up to EIS

    I would like to thank and commend Mr. Metcalfe and his students [at Eminence Independent Schools] for the projects they are doing at our cemetery. 

    It’s been long overdue and to think it took someone not born and raised here to see a reason to bring something together that has always been known as separate. This is a great teaching moment for the kids. It’s the kids who will learn from this because they are our future and that’s where change will come from.

    Well done and keep up the good work.

  • Voting for Bernie

    I was pleased to see other folks in the county are familiar with Bernie Sanders.

    I have recognized that some folks are confused about Bernie’s identifying as a “Democratic Socialist.”  Please do not be fooled into substituting “communism” for “socialism.”  

  • Clinton is best choice

    Despite what Republicans and haters would like you to believe, Hillary Clinton is one of the most honest and accomplished presidential candidates in my lifetime. Despite all the lies, distortions and smear tactics used by Republicans, she is still standing strong. As for haters, I feel many of them are just misinformed and fell in the Fox News traps. 

  • In support of Moffett

    We are in the midst of a presidential election and all of us have been exposed to some intense political discussion over the last year. In light of that, it is refreshing to know that in Henry County you have two great candidates running for the office of 4th District Magistrate.  

  • Bridge dedication

    The Eminence Cemetery Board of Directors will recognize the continuing community service work of Steve Metcalfe’s students at a May 15, 2 p.m. gathering.

    The cemetery board will unveil a bronze plaque for the bridge built by Metcalfe’s science, technology, engineering and math-based class at that time. The public is invited to participate.

  • Vote for Bernie

    This year Bernie Sanders is giving us, the people, a once in a lifetime chance to right some very big wrongs and return our government to the people.  The truly important issues facing this country will not be solved, disputed or even debated while we have public officials taking money from lobbyist in the halls of our Capitol or while those same officials are being lavished with expensive dinners, gifts and offerings.  

  • Liquor mania

    It’s pretty clear now that at just about every stop in Henry County, you will be able to buy liquor. What about groceries and retail goods? I just wish we had someone to put this big of a fight for something we really need and that is grocery stores and retail stores. You always say buy local, and I say, buy what?

  • Criminals get out!

    That is it! I have read enough in the public records section to make me sick.

    All you dummies who want to partake in drugs, steal from us Henry Countians and abuse your family members are cordially invited to move out of Henry County and forever leave us alone. Get out!
