Wayne Sterling resigned yesterday as the CEO of the county's Office of Commerce to accept a similar position in Paducah, Kentucky.
Sterling came to Henry County just 18 months ago ... and his 200-thousand dollar annual salary caused a stir.
But county officials say he's proven he's worth it.
Sterling played a role in recruiting six new companies and expansions to the county.
So far, about half of the 12-hundred jobs that were pledged have materialized.

State police and deputies from three counties started rounding up 25 people early yesterday.

They started their work a year ago, after a local 19-year-old died of a drug overdose.
