  • Henry water district tackles large storage tank project

    Because painting and repairing the 48-year-old, 200,000-gallon water tank would have cost a couple hundred thousand dollars, the Henry County Water District decided to install a new million-gallon tank, according to Director Jimmy Simpson.

    The following cases were heard in Trimble District Court during the week of Aug. 22, 2016:

  • Memorial balloon launch
  • Scenarios envisioned if the school nickel tax vote is successful in Nov.

    Dear Readers,
    In the past week I have continued to hear of questions regarding the Nickel tax and urgent needs funding. It is my goal to answer those questions in this week’s article. The questions asked are:
    •What if the nickel tax does not pass? What are the consequences?
    •What if the tax passes but the legislature does not give Trimble any urgent needs funds?
    •What is the cost to the citizens of Trimble County should the nickel tax pass?
    •Why should renters care?
