    Take pride in our town

    I really love living in Hodgenville. I didn’t grown up here, but I do plan on growing old and raising my children here.

    The only thing I do wish is that the community would take more pride in the way this town looks and how they keep their homes and lawns.

    My family keeps our yard and home as nice as we possibly can, but I see homes with old cars, trash and grown up lawns and think. “wow, this is our city.” This is your home – take pride in it.

  • LETTER: 25 donated blood

    Blood drive successful
    I want to thank the 25 individuals who volunteered to give blood Tuesday at the Hodgenville Woman’s Club. We received 26 good units of blood. Thanks to Donnie Propes and Junior Puyear for the double red donations. Thanks to Rob Brown for his faithfulness in assisting and thanks to The Sweet Shoppe for a tray of fudge.
    The community blood drive is sponsored by the Hodgenville Woman’s Club. It will return Aug. 12.

  • Perfect People

    Perfect people

    I’m amazed at how many perfect people live in Hodgenville and the county.

    They have set themselves up as God, judge, jury and hangman for Terry Cruse and MaDonna Hornback. Some people that own a business or people who work there, have even mouthed off that Terry Cruse and his family should be run out of town. Well we are not going anywhere. How would you like to be judged and convicted before you ever went to trial?

  • Should middle schoolers "play up?"

     I am writing to address a situation at LaRue County Schools. My daughter, who will be a freshman this year recently tried out for the LaRue County High School  Cheerleading Squad. The results were posted Friday night and my daughter did not make the squad – she was chosen as an alternate. I am OK with this, but I have since found out that a seventh-grader made the LCHS Cheerleading Squad.

    We ask your forgiveness

  • Letter: Accusations against mayor, city-clerk, are cruel

     

    As a mother-in-law and friend I have sat back and listened to the accusations and rumors that have been said against my son-in-law Terry Cruse and my friend MaDonna Hornback and quite honestly it hurts me deeply at how cruel some people can be.

  • LETTER: Remove those signs

     I challenge candidates to remove political signs within five days of the May 20 primary election. Only a few campaigns will have November general election opposition. Let’s give those signs a rest as well.

    I suggest a summer of clean highway right-of ways and yards with general election signs returning no sooner than after Labor Day weekend. We all are looking forward to seeing our beautiful scenic byways again.

  • Endorses McCoy

     Endorses McCoy for sheriff

    This letter is my personal endorsement for Russell McCoy for the position of Sheriff in LaRue County.

    In the last 20 years, I have witnessed Russell in many roles, a deputy sheriff, an employee of Phelps Heating and Cooling, an employee of Sunrise Manor Nursing Home, a volunteer fire fighter, a husband and a father. I can assure you he has served each position well.
