  • Catching the Rabbit

    By John Logan Brent

    Henry County Judge-Executive

    Monday night Fiscal Court entered into an option agreement to sell land at the Henry County Commerce Park to Rabbit Hole Distilling for the purpose of building a barrel warehouse.

    This is a significant formal step toward Rabbit Hole making Henry County their home. Discussions about Rabbit Hole and distilleries have been the buzz in the county for the last month. It has been a long time since I have had so many calls from so many passionate people about a single subject.

    A few years ago the parents of a friend of mine were given the heartbreaking news that their son, Greg, was going blind, and that nothing could be done. Everyone was torn with pity for them, but they remained calm and uncomplaining. One night, as I left their home, I tried to express my admiration for their courage.

  • Meet our summer intern: Collin Overton

     Growing up in a small town, I cut my reading teeth on community newspapers like this one. That’s why this summer, I’m excited to be interning with the Henry County Local.
