  • Celebrate Recovery: Letter

    We are excited to announce that Celebrate Recovery will begin its third year of community services on Jan. 8 at the New Castle Baptist Church located at 47 East Cross Main, New Castle.

  • Letter: Rest in peace, Joe

    I heard of the passing of Joe Yates. Several years ago, the editor of the Henry County Local asked Joe Yates and I to write a biweekly colomn for the Local, to give our differing views. We had free reign to write our opposing views. Then-Editor Jonna Priester’s only request that we not argue back and forth.

    That never happened.

    We continued to write our columns until Joe was ready to call it quits and not having an opposing view, the columns came to an end. Too bad too, while Joe may not have gotten anything from my column (my assumption), I did from his.

  • Remember: What we say and write matters

    November brings cooler temperatures and the first hints that winter is just around the corner. The month also contains my favorite holiday —Thanksgiving. It has been my favorite holiday since I was a child; and I had fully intended for this article to focus on my joy of Thanksgiving.

    As I wrote this, my primary emotion was not thanksgiving. I’m not sure there was a primary emotion. Instead of one emotion, I was experiencing several—anger, fear, anxiety, sadness and disgust, to name a few.

  • Letter to the Editor - Nov. 7, 2018

    At our meeting on Oct. 22, the Eminence Council of Churches made the difficult decision to suspend our annual Thanksgiving dinner/fundraiser this year due to scheduling conflicts.

    The dinner has traditionally been set for the Sunday before Thanksgiving, but with the busyness of the holiday season and family commitments by clergy and congregations alike, it became evident that we simply didn’t have the resources available this year.

  • Participate in school events - Oct. 3, 2018

    I am a grandmother, and my granddaughter went to New Castle Elementary School for three years. During that time period, I myself spent many hours at the school helping. I am really upset I guess is easy way to say it.

     Since 1920, all Americans–despite race or gender–have been given arguably the most important right as citizens: the ability to vote.

    On Nov. 6, Henry Countians will have the ability to vote in state and county elections. 

    OK, so who should you vote for in the state and county election?
