  • Mouser’s response to residency

    Lisa Tolliver used 823 words in her article “Candidate’s Residency Questioned.” I am Phillip Mouser, the focus of that article. Three hundred words, that’s the maximum I’m allowed in my response to the article according to the publisher and editor of The Kentucky Standard where the article first appeared. Barely one-third the space allotted for a response. Fair?

  • ALES receives TIP grant

    Second graders at Abraham Lincoln Elementary School recently experienced a week-long residency constructing their own pop-up book with Kentucky Arts Council artist Jane McTeigue.

    Each book had four-page spreads highlighting the “top spots” in LaRue County, ways in which the children could be responsible community members and persons of interest in the community. The two Lincoln statues in downtown Hodgenville also were featured.

  • Flood devastates Railway Museum

    Now that the waters have receded in LaRue and Nelson counties, the damage assessment is under way. In New Haven, the fast-moving flood proved particularly devastating for the tracks and model trains of the Kentucky Railway Museum.

    Greg Mathews, executive director for the Kentucky Railway Museum, said the flood has derailed their day-to-day operations.

    “It’s not a pretty picture,” he said.

  • Passing the Pen

    Sixteen years ago, Minnie Smith held her newborn great-granddaughter Megan in her arms.

    She was a good baby – a smart baby – who seldom cried and was blessed with Minnie’s sparkling dark brown eyes. As Megan grew, it became apparent the two shared a special bond. They would sit together for hours going through the family scrapbook while Minnie told stories about her ancestors and her children Bud, Gary (Megan’s grandfather) and Cheryl.

  • Working as legislative page an eye-opening experience

    For one day, Feb. 25, Leah Carter was able to see Kentucky government up close and personal as a daily legislative page.

    “One of my favorite experiences was sitting in Senator (Carroll) Gibson’s chair during the meeting,” recalled Carter, a straight-A junior at LaRue County High School. ”I know it sounds odd, but I was surrounded by 50 or so senators and it was like I was just as important as they were. I was the only page that got to sit down, so I felt special.”
