    PIPELINE: Speak up, LaRue County
    I read the results of last week’s LaRue County Herald News’ Internet poll with great interest. It indicated that, of 38 responses, 39 percent were in favor of the proposed Bluegrass Pipeline coming through the county and 61 percent were opposed. I realize that such a small sample does not provide the best statistical analysis of the situation, but it does raise a question or two and presents a challenge to those who stand in opposition to the project.

  • Redistricting bumps LaRue to the 24th district

    Last week, the General Assembly returned to the Capitol to re-draw the geographic lines that govern the 100-member House of Representatives and the 38-member Senate.

    It’s something we and every other state are called upon to do each decade, to reflect the differences in population found by the Census.

  • Death to squash bugs

    For the last few years, my rather large family has gathered at Dad’s house just before Halloween for an annual family pumpkin carving contest.

    Filled with good-natured competition between siblings, nephews and nieces, as we crowd around an old picnic table and make a huge mess, this makes for a really fun afternoon. Pumpkin guts fly everywhere.

    There’s a fire pit, some hot chocolate or cider, some type of chili or gumbo, and touch football.

  • LaRue joins Marion, Green in 24th District

    The House passed a plan Wednesday to redraw district boundaries that place LaRue County in a legislative district with Marion and Green counties (24th District).

    For the last 10 years, LaRue has been in the 19th district with Edmonson and Hart Counties.
