  • Suprise twists reveal county history

    In my profession, you never know where the thread of a story will take you.

    I recently wrote stories on the lead mine in Lockport and the history of Defoe each with a fascinating legacy. In this week’s issue, I looked into the origins of a sign that has been on a barn for more than 30 years.

  • Gina Lyle for circuit court clerk


    As most know, election day is just around the corner. Gina Lyle and Nick Hawkins are running for circuit court clerk. Both are great people and have great personalities. But I believe Lyle is the best candidate.

    I have nothing against Hawkins, and he is a great guy. But experience wins the race. Lyle has a total of 24 years under her belt. I feel that no one is more capable of running the clerk’s office than her.

  • Lincoln-Reagan Dinner was a success

     

    President Reagan said “You and I have a rendezvous with destiny… If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.” It is important that we are educated and make informed decisions when we step into the voting booth.

    Each year the Henry County Republican Party holds it’s annual Lincoln-Reagan Dinner, and invites Government officials, and candidates to speak and meet with area voters.

    For nine years, I have belonged to a dog named Gunner. Most people will tell you what type of dog they own, but I can say with absolute certainty that my dog, Gunner, rules my world. He is a 10-year-old rescued Alaskan Husky. At first, he was trembling and shaking so badly, it was hard for him to stand. He responded to touch by maintaining the classic cowed position. It was heartbreaking to see such a beautiful animal so afraid.

  • Lyle: Experience counts

     

    Let me begin by saying that I am not a politician, nor do I claim to be. What I am is someone who loves what they do and hopes to continue doing it for many years.  I suppose the first thing I should do, though, is explain to you exactly what my job is.
