  • Thanks to coaches, donors to sports camp

    We would like to thank the coaches and contributors who helped so much with the free Another Level Basketball Camp held June 16-18.

  • Committe thanks those who supported Relay

    On behalf of the LaRue County Relay for Life Leadership Committee, we wish to publicly thank the many, many LaRue residents who helped make Relay 2015 a huge success. Though the weather forced us to close early, the committee is convinced that hosting the event on the square was a great decision and we look forward to continuing future Relays there. This year was a learning experience and we are excited about some additional changes for 2016.

    Thank you
    Thank you to the many people who have stopped by the office to offer encouragement and kind words over the years – and most recently as I leave my job at The LaRue County Herald News.
    Thank you also for the flowers, cards, gifts and phone calls.
    Friday’s reception was lovely and I appreciate my co-workers for putting it together.
    A special thanks to Colonel Perkins AKA Meat Loaf for sharing his vocal skills at the reception. Hot patootie, indeed.

  • LETTER: Please, reconsider opening the pool

    Please reconsider opening the pool
    The recent news about our public pool not opening has caused a bit of controversy. For not only the people who attended it regularly each season but also for some who have actually never been to it.
    One of the deciding factors of the pools closing was stated by our mayor a couple of weeks ago in The LaRue County Herald News.

  • LETTER: Things you cannot put a price tag on

    Things you cannot put a price tag on ... the laughter of children ... the look of pride when a child learns to swim ... the life-saving skill and confidence that comes from a child learning to swim.
    I am an employee of Laugh-N-Learn Childcare Center. Every summer for 10 years I have had the privilege of watching the children of LaRue County learn to swim. Children, not just from our daycare, but also Kids Crew, First Friends and The Life Connection. Now it saddens me greatly to know that will be taken away (as the pool will not open this summer).

  • LETTER: Heartbroken about pool

    Heartbroken about pool
    I was heartbroken after reading the article about the mayor’s decision to not open the pool this summer.
    I am the owner of Laugh-N-Learn Childcare Center and have been taking children to the pool during the summer three days a week for more than 10 years. I have seen countless children overcome their fear of being in the water, learn to swim and improve their swimming techniques each summer. I know the pool is open only for a short time during the summer, but the children look forward to it all year long.

  • LETTER: Blakeman made a difference

    Blakeman made a difference
    On behalf of the Board of Trustees of The Lincoln Museum, I would like to thank the community for their enthusiastic support of Phyllis Blakeman’s art exhibit and sale that benefited the LaRue County Speech and Debate program and the museum.
    We appreciate the efforts of Phyllis’ students (past and present) who helped with every aspect of the show. We also appreciate the outstanding LCHS speech students who shared their talents at the Sunday afternoon reception.  

  • LETTER: 5K was a successful Relay fundraiser

    5K a successful fundraiser

    We live in a great community and Living Strong Relay Team would like to thank all the people and businesses that made our first 5K Run/Walk a huge success!

    As a result of financial and in-kind donations from Bennett-Bertram Funeral Home, Arrowhead Archery & BBQ, Bullfrogs and Butterflies, Ross Leasing, Hinton's Orchard, Fort Knox Federal Credit Union, Save-A-Lot, IGA, and several anonymous donations, 100 percent of all runner and walker registrations went to LaRue County Relay for Life.
