  • Letter: Stop the loitering

    When is McDonald’s going to stop all the kids from hanging around inside and outside of McDonald’s, creating trouble and making people uneasy about going in and out of McDonald’s?
    This past Friday, while waiting for my son to get off work at McDonald’s, I saw a kid minding his own business get harassed by these girls and boys standing outside to the point where he had to physically defend himself.

  • One editor’s effort to ask a question and remain fair

    One of my best friends from youth recently posted on social media a link to a write up entitled “Death: Reality vs. Reported,” which is a critique of how the news industry decides what to focus on and publish. And perhaps depending on your point of view, the critique does not seem like a favorable one on its face.

  • Sundays remind us of God's loving care
  • 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.

  • A sure bet for Derby or anytime you need a treat

    When I get asked where I grew up and answer Campbellsville, very few people know where it is right off. Unless they’ve visited Green River Lake, know someone that attended Campbellsville University or track Amazon packages through the distribution centers, most don’t really know the exact location. Often they wrongly assume it’s in Campbell County.
    I’ve found the best way to tell people about my hometown, actually located in Taylor County, is to tell them it’s 25 miles from Maker’s Mark. Everyone is familiar with Maker’s Mark bourbon and its famous red wax.

  • Letter: Celebrate Recovery has new meals organizer

    Celebrate Recovery has a new meals organizer
    In April 2016, about two years ago, Henry County Judge-Executive John Logan Brent called together church leaders and asked us to consider our part in addressing the opioid crisis that our county faces. Some of the ministers and lay leaders began meeting monthly for prayer.
    As we met and prayed together, ideas for ministry began to emerge. Some ministers had previously used a particular addiction recovery program in their prison ministry and recommended it to us.

  • Honor Flight needs your help to honor our veterans

    Many Americans don’t understand the commitment soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines make when they enter the military. Whether by draft or enlistment, every single one signed a check made out to the United States of America for an amount “up to and including my life.” And because only about 7 percent of Americans have made that commitment it is imperative that we pledge to caring for these heroes.
    There are thousands of veteran’s organizations. This is a story about a unique organization – Honor Flight.
