Today's News

  • Read the signs, but know your candidate

    It seems that no matter how hard candidates campaign, how many signs they put up, how many ads they buy or how much coverage they receive on the Internet or newspapers, some voters simply do not pay attention.

    It happens on the local level as well as state and national.

    For instance, last week I heard someone talking about long-time jailer Ralph “Mac” Trumbo running for re-election.

    They looked at me strangely when I said, “No, Mac is retiring. It is his son who is running in this election.”

  • Golf scramble thanks

    The LaRue County Chamber of Commerce thanks everyone who played in this year’s Chamber Golf Scramble on May 8. We appreciate the LaRue County Golf Course staff for their help in making the scramble a great success. To the Chamber Board and Golf Committee, Donnie Davis, Shirley, Katy and Nathaniel Nash, Todd and LaDean Self and other volunteers for a job well done.

  • Fun Day was wonderful

    Youth softball would like to thank the community for coming to the park and supporting our league for Fun Day this year. We had a wonderful day. A special thanks goes out to the businesses that donated items for our auction and for all those wonderful people pitching in to make Fun Day a success. Also, I want to thank parents for letting kids play softball and their support this year.

  • Thanks to volunteers

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank the city employees for their diligence and commitment in helping control the onslaught of the rain that fell on our community May 2 and 3, 2010. A leader is only as good as those working for him. Thank you for all of your hard work.

  • City provides assistance to social workers

    The officer referred to in last week’s letter from Lisabeth Blair is me, Lt. Steve Johnson. I worked with Mrs. Blair and the Cabinet for Social Services for several years and continue to have a good working relationship with the present cabinet employees. It is for this reason the letter came as a surprise to me.

  • Laptop petition drive continues

    Kenny Rambo, on behalf of the community support group L.O.L. N.O.W. (Laptops of LaRue No Opportunity Wasted), addressed the school board Monday night to give a report from the group’s efforts at a petition drive to get the laptop initiative back on the ballot.

    The initiative, a plan to place a laptop computer in the hands of each high school student, was voted down by one board member in March. Superintendent Sam Sanders had requested the vote be unanimous.

  • Sugar-free labels can be deceiving

    “Ahh ... sugar free chocolate, the one thing I can have and not feel guilty.” Right? Wrong. You might as well have the real thing, just less of it.
