  • Letter to the editor - Michelle Benningfield

    Dear Editor,

    Recently, Governor Matt Bevin’s proposed cuts to Kentucky’s budget have created outrage among Kentuckians. College students are facing uncertainty. We are already seeing budget cuts that will cause our universities to end various programs on our respective campuses with even more cuts to follow. However, college students will not be the only ones to suffer from these proposed cuts. All Kentuckians will be affected.

  • Letter to the editor - Rachel Richey

    Dear editor,

    If you could take two minutes today to help teach a child a valuable life-saving skill, would you do it? If you said “yes,” then I hope you’ll join me today by calling 1-800-372-7181 to leave a message for your state representative urging their support of Senate Bill 33.

    Once passed, this bill will give every high school student in Kentucky the chance to learn CPR. As the mother of a young daughter with a congenital heart defect who has needed CPR to save her life, I can’t describe the peace of mind this would give my family.

  • LETTER: Just do your job

    Just do your job

    Dear Editor,

    Mr. McConnell: Do your job or get out! Your job in Washington is to confirm judges or not confirm and to review budgets, not when it suits your fancy. You and your republican party have spent the last eight years wasting tax payers money paying you to do your job. Sitting around refusing to confirm a new judge or review the President’s budget is not doing your job. You have spent 8 years sticking it to the President.

  • LETTER: Focus on improving care of nursing home residents

    Dear editor,

    Nursing home residents should have all the rights afforded to any of the rest of us. In fact, Congress and Kentucky legislators enacted an additional bill of residents’ rights because for more than 30 years it’s been obvious that our sickest and most vulnerable need help exercising their rights. It’s not fair to put medical review panels between residents and their right to their day in court if necessary.

  • LETTER: A Special Christmas for the young and old

    Dear Editor,

    Snookie Morrison and the Santa helpers would like to thank everyone in the community for the kind donations of money, toys, clothing, bikes, soccer balls, basketballs and China dolls. We would also like to thank the local businesses for letting us place our donation boxes in their buildings.

    Thanks to everyone that made this 49th year a special Christmas for the young and the old.

    Thanks,

    Snookie Morrison and the Santa helpers 

  • Your opinion matters - Letter to the editor

    Dear Editor,

    As your State Representative, I want to be sure I know your opinion on the issues confronting LaRue County and Kentucky.

    For this reason I want to remind and encourage you to complete and return the questionnaire that was recently printed in the December 9, 2015 edition of the LaRue County Herald News. I want you to know that I read every opinion survey that is returned and that I greatly value your opinion. I hope you will share your views with me so that I can do the best job possible to represent you.

    Sincerely,

    Terry Mills

  • A special thanks to the ‘helpful hardware folks’ - Letter to the editor

    Dear Editor,

  • Overwhelmed by outpouring of support

    Dear Editor:

  • Successful blood drive

    Dear editor,

  • Letter to the editor - Carl Riggs

    Dear Editor,

    Changing my voter registration to Republican never seemed necessary. Being apolitical and generally apathetic most of my life, and given the anemic amount of Republican candidates ever on a Kentucky ballot always reinforced futility of such an effort. But for the last few years I did begin paying attention and forming opinions, and seeing that despite my national party’s ever present mantra of altruism it was or at least had become predatory and in no way represented those it took from or those it gave to.
