MHF News was founded in 2017 to share transportation updates in Henry County. Local resident Clayton Carte saw a need to highlight road projects either in design or right of way acquisition. Since then, the website has grown into a popular source of community news. News coverage includes the following:

  • Transportation projects,
  • New developments and rezoning requests,
  • Henry County Schools and education SPLOST projects,
  • County and city government, and
  • Local elections.
