  • Vote Lyle for Circuit Court Clerk

    A couple of months ago my truck needed some mechanical repairs. I found an experienced mechanic to do the work. Following Ike I needed a new roof on my house. I sought out a qualified roofer to install the new roof.

    That is the way most of us think. We want the most qualified doctor, lawyer, or electrician to do the things we need performed. We appreciate experience.

  • Yeary: Vote Hawkins for Circuit Court Clerk

    One of the major issues least talked about in the Henry County Circuit Court Clerk’s race is our courthouse.

    The Administrative Office of the Courts has declared that the Henry County courthouse is one of two in the state most in need of replacement. Our courthouse is also one of the oldest and most beautiful, built in 1877, and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

  • Payton: Vote Lyle for Circuit Court Clerk

    As a resident of Henry County, it is my pleasure to support Nick Hawkins as our next Circuit Court Clerk.

    Nick is not only a great family man, but one the most active Henry County residents. He is very involved with our youth and extremely knowledgeable about the resources available. I am impressed with how quickly this young man has been able to establish himself in Henry County.

  • Thanks for help with Bill Downey benefit

    On behalf of Bill and his family, we want to thank everyone for helping make the benefit a success.

    We would like to thank all of you who donated food, items for the silent auction and monetary contributions.

    A very special thanks goes out to Fred Porter and Cropper Baptist Church for the use of their facility.

    Last, but by no means least, to the Better Daze Band, Thomas Hood, and Shades of Pink for their awesome music, which was enjoyed by all.

    The money raised was much needed and greatly appreciated by the Downey family.

  • Thank you for support of Derby fundraiser

    Thank you for all of your support for the Henry County Senior Citizens Derby Eve Fundraiser.

    To everyone who worked, came, or donated items, a big thank you. We had another successful year because of you.

  • 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.
