All parents want their children to grow up to be responsible, self-sufficient adults, but the teenage years can be rocky for parents and children. It’s during this time that children often test parents’ limits and start requesting things like cell phones, later curfews and less adult supervision. This is also the time when many parents have to decide where they stand on many issues, financially and morally, and learn how to graciously and responsibly let go.
LaRue County operates under the “Universal Collection Standard.” What this means is that, the County provides trash service to its residents in the form of a franchise hauler.
The current hauler for unincorporated areas (outside Hodgenville City limits) is Waste Transport Service, and their phone number is 270-234-9278. Trash service is not mandatory, (but there are stipulations, see below) and WTS bills its customers quarterly.
Spring is just around the corner, and it’s time to clean up, clean out and organize.
While you do, here are a few reminders. Commonwealth Cleanup week is March 22-29, and I encourage folks to get out and clean their yards of litter along the roadway, and to email me and let me know you did it. Include your name, address, and how many bags you collect. You can even help out an elderly neighbor, or a farmer along his fence line. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
A shrimp boil/fish fry to benefit the family of Addie Roberts will be at 6 p.m. April 19 at Claudia’s Tea Room and the Thurman Phillips Guest House in Sonora. Addie is the 3-year-old daughter of Ben and Angela Roberts, formerly of Hodgenville, who is battling cancer.
There will be music by the Blue Soul Gypsys and a live auction.
