  • Letter to the editor - May 24, 2017

    Dear Editor,

    Throughout the month of May the Kentucky Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet traditionally celebrates the state’s vast tourism industry and releases the year’s economic data and impact figures.

  • Trash for Cash offers eye opening experience

    Dear Editor,

    On April 25 and 29, the 2016-2017 Leadership LaRue class volunteered a few hours of our time to Trash for Cash, which is a government funded activity in which garbage is collected from county roadways and a donation is made to the organization of the volunteer’s choice in return. We worked to benefit the LaRue County Chamber of Commerce.

  • Concern about the negative impact of alcohol

    Dear Editor,

    In regards to the alcohol petition circulating in LaRue County, we would like to take the opportunity to express our concerns about the negative impact it would have, should it be allowed by a vote. We are proud to live in a dry city/county and we hope and pray that it will remain that way.

  • LETTER: Poker Run for child abuse awareness coming to LaRue

    Dear Editor,

    April is Child Abuse awareness month. The Travelers Widows Sons are teaming with SpringHaven, Inc. to host a poker run to help bring awareness and raise proceeds for the children’s program at SpringHaven Domestic Violence shelter.

    Belinda Burd, SpringHaven’s child advocate reached out to the Travelers Widows Sons to ask if they could assist in helping raise awareness and proceeds for the children’s program at SpringHaven.

  • LETTER: Trash for cash brings lessons

    Dear editor,

    I am writing to you about our recent participation in the LaRue County Trash for Cash cleanup in the Oak Hill and Maxine communities. This was a great opportunity for our adults and young people to come together, be a part of beautifying areas of our county and raising funds to be used in an upcoming mission trip to New York.

  • LETTER: Disheartened by beer cans on roads

    Dear Editor,

    On April 1, I was part of a group from South Fork Baptist Church who picked up trash on about 10 miles of back roads in LaRue County, as a fundraiser for our mission trip to Africa.

    It is surprising how much trash 10 miles of country roads can collect. How many beer cans can be chunked out windows on these roads, along with juice boxes, soda cans, broken sunglass cases, tobacco cans, and myriad other items.

  • Hours after trash pick up, more had been thrown down

    Dear Editor,

    Last Saturday, April 1, Becky’s Team participated in the Trash for Cash as a fundraiser for Relay for Life. We cleaned up 10 miles of road littered with everything imaginable, but the sad part of that is 75 to 80% of that trash is recyclable.

    There were lots of plastic bottles and aluminum cans along with paper and Styrofoam too. We also found old tires, a mattress and box springs, an old TV and even a couch and loveseat.

  • Roadside clean up a humbling experience

    Dear Editor,

  • Make throwing trash out the window a thing of the past

    Dear Editor,

    Mt. Moriah Baptist Church took part in the local Trash for Cash as a fundraiser for the June Honduras Mission Trip. From ages 9-66, twenty of us gathered early this past Saturday morning ready to battle on the local roadways.

    Armed with gloves, trash bags, grabbers and orange vests, all generously provided as part of the program, we met to clear 10 miles of late night drive thru detritus, and crying in your beer bottle blues.

  • Letter to the editor - Expo Thank You

    Dear Editor,

    The staff of the LaRue County Extension Service and County Extension Council leaders would like to thank everyone who came out and supported our 2017 Extension Expo. We especially thank the LaRue County Schools for allowing use of the LCHS gym facility and Jailer, Johnny Cottrill and his staff for providing help with set up and take down of the Expo booths. We appreciate the community participation which sustains this annual event.

    Theresa Howard,

    LaRue Co. Extension Service
