• Cosmetology school in Brockman Center - letter to the editor

    Dear editor,

    “The creation of beauty is art.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

    There is “beautiful” renovation going on at the Campbellsville University Brockman Center on KY 210 at the northern outskirts of Hodgenville.

    Passers by can peak into the windows of the Brockman Center to see a laboratory taking shape. The laboratory is a new site for the Campbellsville University Cosmetology School. Come early December smock-wearing students, with cases in hand, will be arriving and instruction will get underway.

    Dear Editor,

    Many people may take first emergency respondents for granted, but assuredly that was not the situation on Thursday, November 12, as a fire assisted by 20 to 30 mile winds rushed rampantly through our garage/tool shed.

    We appreciate the hard work and the effort that were given by the Buffalo and Hodgenville Fire Departments as they extinguished the fire and prevented it from spreading to other buildings on our farm. Thank you.

    Dear Editor,

    The Community Health Clinic of Hardin and LaRue Counties has been in existence since 2001 in Elizabethtown. This clinic was created to serve the working poor in Hardin and Laure Counties. Over the years our services expanded to include those that had no income. In 2014, with the implementation of the ACA, many of our patients qualified for the Medicaid expansion, but those that did not, remained with the clinic after getting on Kynect and finding that the insurance was out of their reach financially.

  • Harp Twins visit, thank you

    Dear Editor,

    A simple thank you seems so inadequate to the community of Hodgenville for their support of the Harp Twins concert event. Even though this event happened in a two day span; months of time, energy, and preparation went before the event.

  • Concern over Kynect


    Dear Editor,

    I am a LaRue County native writing in concern to the livelihood of many of my friends and family. In the past few days, it has occurred to me how many people I know who will lose their healthcare if our governor “guts” Kynect and the Medicaid expansion. Not just my husband, but our parents, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and siblings as well as numerous friends and acquaintances.

    Dear Editor,

    I would like to thank the generous and big hearted people of LaRue County for making the Mike Coffey benefit horse show a big success.

    Thank you to the LaRue County Saddle Club for the use of their club grounds. A big thanks to the LaRue County Beef Cattle Association for all their help and hard work. Thank each of you that donated and bought items for the silent auction, cake auction and each of our raffles. Thank you for attending and riding in the show.

    Dear Editor,

    I feel honored to serve as Judge/Executive in Kentucky’s best county. It’s rare for me to endorse a candidate for office and I do so only after careful consideration and measurement of that individual.  In the race for Governor the choice is clear: Jack Conway.

  • Letter to the editor - Gary Gardner

    Dear Editor,

    A few people already know this, but for several months I have been working on a book about the Lincoln family centered upon a look at their neighbors in what is today LaRue County. History, both written and oral, has left us with a slanted interpretation of life here in the early 19th century.  We have a collective impression of a rather primitive society, which is far from the truth. There was, in fact, a wealth of social and economic diversity here 200 years ago, much as there is today. 

  • Letter to the editor - 2016 Relay for Life Leadership Team

    Dear Editor,

    The LaRue County Relay for Life Leadership Team would like to publicly thank the LaRue County Girls Volleyball Team and the LaRue County Football Team for their outstanding efforts to jumpstart the 2016 Relay for Life fundraising effort.

    Dear Editor,

    To the good people of Hodgenville, this is a note to let you know how much we enjoyed our visit to your lovely town during the Lincoln Days Celebration. It’s always good to see old friends and meet new ones. Thank you for your hospitality. We made it home in good time and we hope to see you next year.
