  • Government grabs more power with gun control

    Our precious little granddaughter Autumn Rae was amazing Dennis and I this weekend with her ability to read. It was a piece of mail Dennis had received and she pronounced a lot of big words for a first grader and we were beaming with pride at our latest prodigy. But what she was reading sent me into my latest rant.

  • Bring on the pork burgers, the grill is back

    A grill owned by the LaRue County Pork Producers was returned last week after being “misplaced” for a couple of months. The group loaned the grill, valued at $1,500, to a local church in February, according to Bill Goatley.

    One of the church members placed the grill in a storage building and forgot about it, Goatley said.

    The Pork Producers can start scheduling community cooks.

    In early summer of 2009, the Kentucky High School Athletic Association voted to move the pitching mound in high school softball from 40 feet away from home plate to 43 feet to match the collegiate game. 

    It takes one look at the box scores of state games to notice that something is going on with the game of fast pitch softball this season. One game ended in a 29-29 tie that was called due to darkness.

    On behalf of the LaRue County Youth Baseball/Softball Leagues, I would like to thank the community for their support in making our workday at the park a huge success. Thanks to those individuals who took time out of their busy weekend schedule to help us make the park a safer more vibrant place for the children in our community to play.

    If you could save someone’s life, would you? Most of us would, if given the opportunity, which is exactly what choosing to be an organ donor does.

    With over 106,000 Americans awaiting a life-saving organ transplant and hundreds of thousands more waiting for a cornea or tissue transplant, consider joining the Kentucky Donor Registry.
