• Letter to the editor

    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

    Mystery men swooped in and cleaned up after storm
    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.

  • Letters: Stivers says he will keep sheriff's staff if elected

    Stivers says he’ll keep sheriff’s staff, if elected
    I am proud to again announce my candidacy for the office of sheriff of Henry County.
    Because of statements made that concerned many voters during the 2014 campaign, I want the voters to be perfectly clear that the personnel under the current administration will not be out of a job if I am elected.
    It would be extremely irresponsible to fire trained personnel who have been doing a good job.

  • Letters: It's not skin color. It's DNA.

    It’s DNA, not skin color
    As we observe Black History Month, I appeal to your values and common decency. Change the attitudes around you by embracing all people of color. Our connection is DNA, a carrier of genetic characteristics. When skin color is the focus, it ignores our spiritual, historical and genetic reality. Oftentimes, others determine racial acceptance by skin color. We deny each other. We are Americans bound by blood and humanity, not color.

  • Letter: Recognizing unsung community heroes

    Recognizing community role models

    During Black History month, some of the unsung are not recognized. They may not realize how they inspired, informed, guided or educated young people. Their conversations and actions are powerful. Some are gone now, but hopefully their families will relate to their impact and a bit of Black cultural legacy.

  • Letters: Object to state road cuts

    Object to state cuts of local road projects
    The governor’s proposed six-year road plan was not kind to much needed road improvements in Henry County.
    The plan defunded four projects and pushed back the start date on Ky. 146 phase I.
    The four projects that were defunded were Ky. 389 near Port Royal where the road is giving way to the river; Ky. 241 in Pleasureville, which included drainage and much needed sidewalk repair; Ky. 55, North Main Street in Eminence, where utility poles are literally a few inches from the roadway; and phase II of Ky 146, Clean Harbors to New Castle.
