Hey Henry, it is great to see changes
at Woodland Middle School, just sad that it took this long for them
Hey Henry, to the people who are messing with mailboxes in the Lake
Dow area, you’re involved with a federal offense.
Hey Henry, to the person referring to “cops being in private
driveways”.... as a cop, you’d be surprised how many times we are
asked to sit in people’s driveways to help stop speeding vehicles.
As long as he can be seen from 500 feet away clearly, there is no
Hey Henry, does Henry County or McDonough have a noise ordinance for
autos. I hear quite a few going up and down Hwy. 155 with their
music jacked way up and others that are in need of muffler repair.
Hey Henry, I believe in about five years, Henry County is going to
be another Clayton County. Everybody hang on and be sure you’re
armed and don’t go to the shopping centers at night because you will
probably be robbed.
Hey Henry, why is it that people keep ignoring the obvious drug
dealing going on at the intersection on Independence Road in the
Saratoga Woods subdivision in McDonough?
Hey Henry, do you think the leaders we elected in Stockbridge to
manage the city will ever grow up enough to actually worry about
city business instead of all the finger pointing and fighting?
Hey Henry, can we sell the airport we bought but never really needed
now? The money we get can be used to buy duct tape for teachers to
hold together school books for our students.
Hey Henry, the political “robocalls” were so bad this last time, we
cancelled our home land line. It’s horrible that we had to do this,
we’ve had that phone number for almost 18 years.
Hey Henry, I would like to say thank you to all the teachers who
work hard everyday to teach our children. Also, I would like to
thank the maintenance and custodial staff that keep our schools
clean. Shame on Henry County Board of Education and shame on the
State of Georgia for not giving these people a raise in going on six
Hey Henry, what has happened to the Republican Party in Henry
County? Are we supposed to come out and support them without knowing
who they are and what their plans are for Henry County? Who is
running the party and why aren’t they visible in the county.
Hey Henry, in regards to the person who wrote about the Mayor of
Stockbridge’s attitude, perhaps the problem is his staff doesn’t
like discipline and don’t want any changes. Time to clean house in
Hey Henry, thanks to the four folks from the Haunted History Tour
who stayed late to rescue me after I locked my keys in the car. When
no one else would help, y’all didn’t give up until we opened the
door. You were my angels! Thank you!
Hey Henry, can the dog owner that allows your animal to come in my
yard and leave it’s droppings at least be considerate enough to pick
it up? And you stand there watching?
Hey Henry, what high school football
game are you going to where you only spend $5? The tickets are $7
for the Woodland High football games. I agree students should be
free (elementary age) or half price.
Hey Henry, speaking as a library employee, let me set the record
straight: There is no change in the cell phone policy. Please turn
your cell phone to mute or vibrate and take all calls outside the
Hey Henry, the awesome students in the special needs class at Luella
High School would like to give a huge “Thank You” to the generous
gentleman in the Freightliner shirt who donated $20 so we could
enjoy a cool, refreshing Frosty at Wendy’s on a recent Community
Based Instruction trip. The world is full of wonderful people and
you touched our lives!
Hey Henry, to the person fussing about the round-about at Fairview
Road and Highway 155! We love it and our grandkids call it the
“round d round.” This was a great idea and it keeps the traffic
going. A big thank you to whoever came up with that idea.
Hey Henry, I keep my yard neat so if I find your kids’ toys laying
in front of my house, I’m going to pick up the trash.
Hey Henry, listen up some of you drivers that use Daily Mill Road,
Please stay in your lane while crossing the bridge at Walnut Creek.
Hey Henry, the person talking about jobs in Henry County, forget it.
You have to be a family member or friend. That’s how most people get
jobs now-a-days. A degree used to mean something. Now it’s who you
know and who you are related too. Just go to the Henry County Board
of Education and look around.
Hey Henry, I think it is ridiculous when you have well water and the
County won’t run water down the road you live on, but you have to
pay tax for county water! Seriously?
Hey Henry, there is one good thing about Honey Boo Boo. The American
tax payers won’t have to fund the wide-load electric chair she will
need for shopping at you-know-where-Mart. She should be able to
afford it herself!
Hey Henry, to the two McDonough police officers who gave a woman 2
speeding tickets at the same time for the same incident on
Industrial Blvd. One would have sufficed. Meanwhile in the crime
Hey Henry, congratulations on the Chicago teacher strike. At least
they have the courage to strike. Henry County teachers are too
scared, they might lose their jobs. Until they get together and
protest, they may never get a raise.
Hey Henry, to the person complaining about people coming late to
appointments. I assume you were referring to medical appointments. I
would gladly show up early for a doctor’s appointment, if I knew I
would be seen at the time set aside for me. However, most of the
time I’m stuck in the waiting room well past my designated
appointment time. No wonder my blood pressure is always higher in
the doctor’s office, than at home.
Hey Henry, thank you to Dody Morris for your letter to Dr. Ethan
Hildreth. I don’t need to say more. She said it all!
Hey Henry, libraries are becoming
internet cafes. I think we should get rid of the expensive computers
and get back to providing books. We don’t owe anyone internet
access. It’s time to start thinking inside the box again.
Hey Henry, to the person asking why schools don’t pray or say the
pledge. Our school does say the pledge every morning. We don’t pray,
but we do have a moment of silence.
Hey Henry, I work for a group of physicians in Stockbridge and would
like to thank a guardian angel, Julian, who came to the aid of an
elderly patient today. Our patient lost his footing in the parking
lot and he fell. His wife and I were unable to lift him up. Julian
saw our dilemma, stopped his car and came to our aid. Many, many
other people just walked by and never offered any assistance. He
treated our patient with dignity and respect and his kind gesture
should be recognized. His kindness restores my faith in mankind.
Thank you again.
Hey Henry, what ever happened to “respect your elders?”
Hey Henry, who’s bright idea was it to build a round about at the
intersection of Hwy 155 and Fairview Road? People have a hard enough
time at a four way stop.
Hey Henry, to the one who burglarized our home in Locust Grove. Try
it again and let me know how it works out for you.
Hey Henry, yeah, we only paid for the courthouse and the parking
lot. What nerve we have thinking we can park in the reserved spaces.
Maybe there shouldn’t be any reserved spaces.
Hey Henry, over the past three years, I have called City Hall to ask
why they are not spraying for mosquitoes, considering there have
been cases of West Nile reported in surrounding counties in the
Metro Atlanta area? What is it going to take for taxpaying citizens
to get the City of McDonough to start spraying? I will continue to
call until I get some answers.
Hey Henry, why does the Henry County School System go so far out of
their way to avoid teaching special needs students? It would take
less time and effort to do it right the first time.
Hey Henry, the county needs to make a rule that you have to take
down yard sale signs after the sale ends. Sometimes you see them up
for weeks later. Maybe a fine should be given if they are not taken
down two days after the sale.
Hey Henry, to the parent complaining about their children wearing
coats to school. The very first thing parents were told when the
year started was for children to bring a light coat to leave at
school because it is going to be cool. When you get 20 to 30 kids in
a room, it gets very hot for the teacher who has to move around
working with the kids. I would rather be cool any day than hot!
Hey Henry, when you have an appointment that means it is your
designated time set aside especially for you. So, come on time and
don’t get all huffy and mad when the office reschedules. Everyone
knows Henry county has a traffic problem so plan accordingly.
Hey Henry, to the thieves who broke into the Youth Building at
Philippi Baptist Church in Locust Grove. To be a thief is pathetic,
and to steal from a church is absolutely pitiful! You need to get a
real job, and take care of yourself! You stole from teenage kids. I
hope you feel good about yourself. We are praying for you, because
unless you repent to the Lord, you will pay the price for your
Hey Henry, why is it taking so long
to complete the bridge over the railroad on Rock Quarry Road? We are
by there regularly and half the time no work is being done. Will we
see completion by December?
Hey Henry, to the writer who missed the memo about the “Yield” signs
now becoming a “Merge” sign - I missed that memo as well as the memo
regarding making a right turn on a red light. Just because the law
allows a right on red, you still have to stop and do not have the
right to cut off on-coming traffic.
Hey Henry, I asked one of the ladies at Fairview library about the
cell phones being used and she said that it was probably because the
customers wanted to use them and got mad when they were told they
couldn’t. I’m sorry, but that’s no reason. I don’t want phones and
noise in the library.
Hey Henry, is anybody wearing flip-flops to work this summer?
Hey Henry, can we get some pickleball courts in this county? People
are going crazy over it, but there is no place to play.
Hey Henry, to the Wal-Mart on Hudson Bridge, I could not shop
Saturday for having to move to either let someone put up stock, or
for empty stock carts in the way or the floor sweepers asking me to
move. What’s up with that?
Hey Henry, is there a reason that some of our county schools and
ball parks, which are government run, leave the flag flying at
night? The US Flag Code (United States Code Title 4 Chapter 1-The
Flag, §6. Time and occasions for display) states that it is
customary to fly the flag only from sunrise to sunset unless
Hey Henry, I had forgotten there is a McDonough elephant until I saw
it on Griffin Street just past the churches.
Hey Henry, if the Henry County Board of Commissioners can pray and
pledge the flag before the beginning of each meeting, then why can’t
Hey Henry, if you come to the Henry County Courthouse, and are not
an employee, please notice that the parking lot behind the
courthouse has signs at both entrances that read “Parking For
Hey Henry, I hope the run-off election sent a loud message to our
elected officials: you can’t use public funds to pay for your pet
projects, while crying crocodile tears about reductions in public
safety, libraries, and maintenance. Also, don’t underestimate the
intelligence, or the memory-span, of the voters.
Hey Henry, how long is it going to take the county to paint the
lines on Coan Drive and Old Jackson Road. I figured about another
ten years because it took them at least 20 to repave the roads.
Hey Henry, sure would love to find an administrative job in Henry
County. All this talk of growth, yet no jobs are available. What
Hey Henry, I think kids 8 and under should be admitted into Henry
County sports/games for the price of a child’s ticket. $2 maybe? Not
the $5 adult admission price. Some families need a break!
Hey Henry, we need a like and dislike
under all these comments. Sure would be nice.
Hey Henry, please call the administrators at the McDonough branch of
the Henry County libraries and complain about the idiotic decision
to think about allowing cell phone use in the library. This is the
most ridiculous thing I've ever heard of.
Hey Henry, so sad that yet another employee is leaving the City of
Stockbridge. When will the Mayor learn that his attitude is the
problem, not everyone else?
Hey Henry, my kids are wearing jackets to school in August because
the teachers keep the AC up so high. How about letting the teachers
wear shorts instead?
Hey Henry, hats off to the Henry County Fire Department and the City
of Stockbridge for burning down the perfectly good 168-year-old
Hightower home for no reason.
Hey Henry, whoever had the bright idea about cell phones in a
library needs to think again. I go to read and study and do
research. If I have to listen to more noise, I won’t go back. What a
Hey Henry, I was impressed with the excellent service I received at
the Stockbridge tag office. Quick and painless. On the way out I
penned a quick compliment and dropped in the suggestion box. Last
week I received a phone call from the Tax Commissioner, David Curry,
personally thanking me for the compliment! As if the man is not busy
enough he takes the time to personally call customers... Impressive!
Hey Henry, when all the good teachers leave, enjoy that data!
Hey Henry, to Jimmy Cochran: thanks for the memories of books! The
Bobbsey Twins, The Boxcar Children. I have not thought of them in
years. I have all the Bobbsey Twins books. Thanks again for the
great write up.
Hey Henry, please vote on November 6, but check your facts first.
$716 from medicare is being used to reduce the cost from insurance
companies and the cost of prescription drugs. I guess you want an
$8,000 voucher. How much is that going to get you?
Hey Henry, the speed limit on Leguin Mill Road is 45 from Peeksville
to Unity Grove Elementary and 35 from Unity Grove to Old Jackson.
You can ride my bumper all you want, but I am not going to go any
faster. I live on Leguin Mill, I have had multiple accidents in my
front yard because people going way too fast and losing control. If
you are in that big of a hurry, leave earlier. They should have
never paved the rest of Leguin Mill many years ago.
Hey Henry, for the person complaining about their children being 10
minutes late, get up earlier!
Hey Henry, I just moved back to Clayton County from Henry. Got a
great deal on a house and my commute is cut in half! Figured I might
as well since Henry is going down the tubes so fast.
Hey Henry, I have never seen such nasty political campaigns before
the current election. Some of the fliers I received were so vulgar
my mailbox would have been rated X. Clean campaigns achieve the
Hey Henry, my family has been dealing
with pure heartache and tragedy this past week, when we lost our
wonderful Jason Holland, however the support and love that our great
little community of Ola has poured out to us has been beyond
believable and only heard of in fairytales. Our Ola schools,
churches, and businesses have really come together to embrace our
family, and for that we are forever thankful. On behalf of our
families, we thank you Ola. We are very blessed to live in such a
loving caring community. As we state: WE ARE OLA! That saying could
not be more true and not only said, but acted on as well. Thank you
again. God Bless you all.
Hey Henry, does anyone know what happened to the Kroger that was
supposed to be built on Racetrack Road? The signs are gone (Kroger
building site) as well as all the construction trailers and
Hey Henry, bring hockey back to Georgia! R.I.P. Atlanta Thrashers
Hey Henry, the speed limit on Phillips Drive in McDonough went from
35 mph to 25 mph. No sign was ever posted indicating a speed
reduction. Just saying!
Hey Henry, senior citizens are you aware that the federal government
has used $716 billion taken from Medicare to fund the Affordable
Care Act? That’s money we paid into the system that will not be
available now. If you have Medicare Advantage, wave bye bye. It’s
going away. Do some research and remember it when you go to the
polls on November 6.
Hey Henry, to those complaining about fire trucks at Wal-Mart, maybe
they missed lunch because they were running a call. Maybe they
missed breakfast AND lunch, because they were running calls. Or
maybe they were there shopping for something for a project. If you
want to know, go ask them before you blast them. As for leaving the
truck running, it’s cheaper than a tow bill. If they return to their
truck and it doesn’t crank, what do they do then? Finally, as for
the person in a Fire Dept truck parking in a handicapped spot...
Just plain lazy.
Hey Henry, I was in McDonough library today and heard two ladies
talking about the libraries starting to let people use their cell
phones inside the library! If they make this stupid decision I will
have to go to Clayton county where it is quiet and more peaceful!
Tell me this is a joke!
Hey Henry, if the county can’t afford a red light at the
intersection of Hwy 138 and Hemphill Road, has anybody thought about
shaving the ditch and taking more of the curve out? It is very
dangerous, especially pulling out of Hemphill Road and turning left.
Think about it!
Hey Henry, maybe if so many kids were not crossing attendance lines
for school choice, etc., their parents could get to school on time.
The ones who are always late should be forced to go back to their
home school and ride the bus!
Hey Henry, when HCFD receives a call that there is an accident,
medical emergency or house fire, they don’t have time to retrieve
their personal auto. Just because these hardworking, underpaid men
and women need to eat shouldn’t be a problem. Get a life and let
these people continue protecting it. Thank you all for a “Job Well
Hey Henry, today was the second time
during the past month I have driven up to the McDonough Bank of
America ATM and found the machine asking me if I want an additional
transaction because the person in front of me did not follow
directions and press done. Not everyone is honest and could wipe out
your accounts. Just a reminder, when you have completed your
transaction, please be sure to hit “done” and don’t leave the ATM
until the home screen returns.
Hey Henry, to all people who are boycotting Chick-Fil-A because of
Truett Cathy’s personal feelings about marriage... The penalty for
being homosexual in Saudi Arabia is death. Are you going to stop
buying gas also?
Hey Henry, if the County is in dire financial shape can someone
explain to me why a fireman would drive a big fire truck to lunch
and run errands at Wal-mart and leave the fire truck running and
Hey Henry, just want to say thank you to the lady with the baby who
found my purse in the Kroger grocery buggy Monday evening. Cannot
thank you enough for your honesty! Nice to know there are still
awesome people in McDonough. God Bless you.
Hey Henry, why is the Post Office here in McDonough allowed to look
like the city dump. There is trash strewn all around, the flowerbeds
are never weeded, the trees all need trimming as well as the hedges
and and the grass needs regular cutting. What an eyesore in this
Hey Henry, kudos to the staff at the Locust DDS office! They do a
great job helping calm in the confusion and maintain an orderly
flow. The office is understaffed but does the best with what they
have. Not so much for the customers who obviously can't
read/comprehend clear instructions.
Hey Henry, congratulations to Henry County resident, Connor Price!
He left last Wednesday for the United States Navy. He's one of many
who protect our freedom everyday.
Hey Henry, just watched the commissioners meeting of 8/7/2012. They
awarded a contract for $70,320 for engineering services to design
Frog Road. I know for a fact, Henry County has at least 6 engineers
on staff, with 3 of them being registered. Why are we paying for
outside services, in this economy, when we have engineers working
for us? Are they incompetent, and not qualified to design a road?
Seems we are wasting a lot of money somewhere.
Hey Henry, and all people in Georgia: Please stop breeding animals,
as the shelters are full of homeless pets!
Hey Henry, the field of medicine to be in over the next 5-10 years
is chiropractic, because the number of kids that will begin to
experience curvature of the spine, due to keeping their necks always
bent down to text! Come on parents, this could be the next epidemic
of the 21st century! Great Job.
Hey Henry, to all the cyclists who insist on riding on Hwy. 20/81 at
rush hour. Can you please do this at some other time rather than
rush hour every evening? Traffic is bad enough without having to
dodge cyclists and someone is going to get hit.
Hey Henry, for the person complaining about their children being 10
minutes late, get up earlier, duh!
Hey Henry, I must have missed the
email when they changed yield signs to mean merge!
Hey Henry, I know these 5K walk/runs are for a good cause, but can’t
they do them around a high school track instead of shutting down
residential streets for 45 minutes with no warning? The first time
someone dies because an ambulance cannot drive through thousands of
people flooding the streets, someone in this county will show some
common sense and change this practice.
Hey Henry, what is with the Henry County Fire Department’s regular
sized truck parked in the handicapped spot at the Publix at Lake
Dow. This truck has no handicap tag or any visable sticker stating
they are disabled. This is the second time I have seen the same
truck parked there. If you are an able bodied working fireman don’t
you think those spots are for disabled people or the eldery who are
not able bodied? Anyway, isn’t that a $500 fine?
Hey Henry, you have to be kidding. When you call to put yourself on
the “do no call list,” you are signing yourself up to be on the call
list. You don’t think your info gets sold? Think again.
Hey Henry, so the muppet master is banning Chick-fil-A. I say
yipeeee. I am so sick of these people thinking that banning Chick-fil-A
will hurt them. I think his business speaks for itself. God has his
hands firmly on Truett Cathy’s business and I am glad to see a
company stand firmly on it’s Christian beliefs. We would all do well
to follow Mr. Cathy’s example. I think our country would be in much
better shape. I say Mr. Cathy for president.
Hey Henry, it’s my understanding from the organization officials of
the softball games that take place in Locust Grove that no coaches
should be chewing tobacco during any practice and/or softball games.
Our coaches should be setting a good example for our future
generation and chewing tobacco is NOT setting that good example.
Hey Henry, please ask the Street and Roads Department to remove the
“Deer Crossing” sign on Airline Road just east of Highway 155. Too
many deer are getting hit by cars there and hopefully the Department
can find a safer place for them to cross.
Hey Henry, to the wired up Henry County cop at the Chick-fil-A on
Saturday afternoon: (the confrontational one trying to exit in the
wrong lane, driving directly at the front of another car, and then
yelling at other drivers on the PA system) my 12 year old daughter
wanted to know why you were acting so badly. I didn’t have a good
explanation for her.
Hey Henry, a big big Thank You to Tracy and the ladies in the Locust
Grove City Hall for helping my daughter, Anna! I know how busy ya’ll
are and you really went above and beyond!
Hey Henry, if Missy Elizabeth apologizes for that stand on “T-Splost
we might vote to re-elect her again. Love you Liz but following the
"Good Ole Boys” about cost you big time! This old Warrior loves the
Henry County Times, and Moyes RX, y’all keep up the good work!
Hey Henry, the first day of school on East Lake Rd, particularly
East Lake Elementary, was a disaster. Parents, who want to walk your
kids into school, please park on the road so when you are pulling
out of your parking spaces you are not delaying the carpool lane. We
are trying to get our kids to school, too. My son was 10 minutes
late after sitting in line for 20 minutes and then it was another 15
minutes before I was able to escape the madness. A complete
Hey Henry, why are citizens who work
out at the J.P. Mosely Gym forced to watch only Fox News. We are
told that Fox News is the only channel on both televisions that we
are allowed to watch. This is neither fair nor balanced.
Hey Henry, I think the citizens of McDonough should pool their
resources and buy a chipper for the City. I have had limbs piled on
my property for over a month. Every time I call City Hall they tell
me the chipper is not working.
Hey Henry, to the incumbent who’s so proud of cutting the budget by
20 million dollars: we know. That’s why library hours have been
slashed, vacant positions are unfilled, services are lacking, and
county departments are understaffed. Are you sure that’s something
you want to brag about?
Hey Henry, to the person so interested in keeping up with the school
buses in the summer. Just to let you know, summer school is going on
for special needs students and bus training for new drivers. We are
not just out joyriding!
Hey Henry, to the people with cell phones, shut up and drive, before
you cause an accident.
Hey Henry, just take a moment and pause to think of the many
blessings that have been bestowed upon us. If you think good
thoughts, good things will happen.
Hey Henry, does anyone know what Take Gap, Give Gap means at the red
light at Highway 42 and Jonesboro Street at the Square in McDonough?
People, please be courteous. The next time it may be you coming from
the other direction.
Hey Henry, I have always been under the impression that when law
enforcement calls a wrecker to pick up the vehicles after a traffic
accident, the wrecker driver is required to clean up all broken
glass and parts, not push the parts off to the side and leave glass
in the street for all the cars to pick up in their tires. Henry
County needs to enforce this better.
Hey Henry, thanks to Mayor Lee Stuart for a doing a good job. You
Hey Henry, in response to swimming in the South and Yellow Rivers?
The rivers are not clean like they used to be and a 2-year-old child
does not have the resistance to bacteria that an adult has. Have you
not followed the Amy Copeland story?
Hey Henry, how can I trust our government with billions of T-SPLOST
money when they can’t even get a little bridge over the Rock Quarry
railroad track built? How many other half-done, lengthy projects
would we be signing up for?
Hey Henry, If you are going south on Highway 155 and turning right
onto East Lake extension... you have to yield to the people making a
u turn. If you have a red light you have to stop on red and yield to
those who have a green light, even if you are making a u turn! Green
trumps red... every time!
Hey Henry, a shout-out to the South Side Charity Ride for
Alzheimer’s, Inglett & Stubbs Int’l, all bike riders, bars, everyone
who donated time and money and to Leadfoot for rocking out this past
weekend to benefit the Georgia Chapter for Alzheimer’s.on’t need all
