  • REAL ID a real solution for Kentuckians

    In 2005, Congress enacted legislation enhancing national security by adding new requirements for state driver’s licenses and other official ID cards. In an effort to comply with the standards, the General Assembly passed House Bill 410 this session, also known as REAL ID.

    While there has been some concern over the federal requirements, the measure recently passed in Kentucky complies with federal standards while making the new travel ID voluntary, and I want to ensure every citizen of House District 24 is informed on this new policy.

    Our deepest sympathy goes out to the family of Ronnie Stubbs who passed away Tuesday, May 16 at Hardin Memorial Hospital. He was known by many in the surrounding area and for playing the harmonica with Marvin King and the Gospel Keynotes. Percell Funeral Home in Elizabethtown was in charge of arrangements.

    Jerry Smith passed away on Saturday, May 20 at his residence. His funeral was Tuesday afternoon at Bennett and Bertram Funeral Home.

    Congratulations to MJ Embree for receiving a scholarship to Berea College.

    Thought for the week: It is what it is, it was what it was and it will be what it will be. Don’t stress it.

    Another class of graduates walked the line on May 19. Congratulations to everyone. The weather was perfect.

    I have had a great birthday week and I will be celebrating again on May 26 at my friend’s house, Kay Fulmer, and several of my KYknitwits sisters in Elizabethtown.

    Thought for the week:  There will always be people in life who treat you wrong. Be sure you thank them for making you strong.

    I hope everyone had a great Mothers Day. We went to Hodgenville Grill for lunch then came home and spent the afternoon on the front porch and enjoyed the beautiful weather as I worked in a new flowerbed. Birthday banners are set to be ready for my birthday on the 19th.

    I can’t believe that it is graduation time again, which happens on my birthday this year. Where did the year go?

  • Relay luminaries now on sale

    With LaRue County’s Relay for Life scheduled for Saturday, June 3, luminary sales to honor or remember a loved one is now one of the main goals of the local Relay for Life teams.

    The white illuminated paper bags with names of those stricken with cancer will line both sides of the perimeter of the roundabout in downtown Hodgenville on Relay night with the Remembrance Ceremony taking place at 10:30 p.m.

    During the event, the names of survivors and those remembered will be read aloud and walkers will then silently make a lap in their honor.
