  • Laptop initiative will open doors for learning

    LaRue County Schools are considering taking a giant step forward in technology that could equip all their high school students with never-before opportunities for learning.

    The program, which students will name, will put the use of a laptop computer into the hands of each LaRue County High School student. 

    “I feel the laptop initiative has the potential to enhance learning and better prepare our students for college and/or the work force,” said Sam Sanders, LaRue County Schools superintendent. 

  • Poor nutrition for beef cattle can have delayed effects on productivity

    This has been a great year for forage production in LaRue County. We’ve had plenty of rain and thus grass for the grazing season with lots to spare for haymaking. We still have accumulated fescue pasture that can be grazed this winter. In recent years, cattle producers have been feeding hay for months by this time of year.

  • Local residents honored by UK football team

  • Stand up for your constitutional right to say 'Merry Christmas'

    I’m sure everyone is aware that some people want to remove God from our lives. They want to remove “under God,” from the pledge, remove the Ten Commandments, have no prayer in school and the list goes on.

    Why are we letting these people take away what this nation was founded under? We put contact information in the paper regularly so you can write to the politicians and tell them what you think. If these politicians that we elected don’t work for “we the people” then “we the people” need to remove them.

  • Lincoln's lessons on civility and communication live

    As citizens of this great democracy, we have the right to openly express our political viewpoints and to freely share our ideological differences. When we exercise these rights in a thoughtful and respectful manner, we have the potential to foster greater good. Yet when we refuse to listen to opposing perspectives or when we treat each other with blatant disrespect, ill-will and mistrust are often the result.

  • Love your spouse for the sake of your children

    “In all things shewing thy self a partner of good works” Titus 2:7

    Someone said, “One day my husband and I got into an argument and ended up yelling at each other. I retreated to the porch and sat with my head in my hands crying. Our 2 year-old overheard the argument. “I love you Mom,” she said, as she sat beside me and put her arms around me. “I love you too,” I said. She rested her head on my shoulder, hugging me hard. “I wish you could love my Daddy too,” she said.

    Talk about ripping your heart out.
