Letters

  • Letter to the editor - To the dispatcher who went above and beyond, thank you

    Dear Editor,

    I am enclosing a copy of a letter sent to Craig Dunn who is the E-911 director and supervisor of a dispatcher named Emmanuel Collado.

    A group of senor citizens needed help last Tuesday night and he came to our assistance. We appreciated what Mr. Collado did for us as this letter enclosed will explain.

    Dear Mr. Dunn,

  • Letter to the editor - Concerned over local sales tax

    Dear Editor,

    On November 8, voters in Kentucky will elect General Assembly members. This is important because these state legislators will once again consider the local option sales tax. This constitutional amendment would allow local governments to add a new local one percent sales tax in addition to the 6 percent state sales tax already paid on taxable goods. If this happens it will hurt consumers, businesses, and Kentucky’s economy.

  • Letter to the editor - Don’t let presidential race overshadow other races on the ballot

    Dear Editor,

    We’d like to encourage your readers to get to know the candidates on the ballot before they vote this election. Presidential races sometimes overshadow down ballot races and this year is no exception. Please know there are other very important offices on the ballot including U.S. Senate, Congress, State Senate, all 100 seats of the Kentucky State House and city council races.

  • LETTER: Thank you for support

    Dear Editor,

    I would like to thank Cindy Cruse, manager of Save A Lot, and an anonymous band parent for the donation of snacks and water for the Band of Hawks. It’s community support that glues our group together.

    Sincerely,

    Patty Ford

  • Students’ safety becoming a concern - Letter to the editor

    Dear editor,

    As we transition from summer break to the fall semester of school in LaRue County, along with changing schedules and eager children, there also comes the reappearance of school buses on LaRue County roadways. 

  • Hate taking control of election - Letter to the editor

    Dear editor,

    What have our country and LaRue County become that I can’t have a Hillary sign in my yard without someone spraying graffiti above her name? Hate has taken control of this election. I can’t understand how people think it’s ok to print something as vulgar as this in public where little children on school buses can see it or maybe some of your mothers on the way to church. I believe our county and country are better than this.

    Sincerely,

    Phinis Hundley

  • Importance of attending the tax hearing - Letter to the editor

    Dear Editor

    The 2016-17 school year is off to a tremendous start. I want to thank each LaRue County Schools student, parent, teacher, staff member and volunteer for their commitment to what is sure to be a successful year. As a parent and a business owner, I am honored to serve as a member of the LCS Board of Education.

  • Letter to the editor -Salute to First Responders

    Dear Editor,

    On some anniversaries we celebrate; on others we reflect.

    The 15th anniversary of the attack on America and New York’s World Trade Center is one of the times for reflection. There is truly nothing to celebrate in the extraordinary tragedy of 9/11.

    As much as I would like to forget some of them, the images from that day will never be out of my mind, not will the victims and their families.

  • Letter to the editor -Thank you for an “Amazin’ ” gift

    Thank you for an “Amazin’ ” gift

    Dear Editor,

    On behalf of the LaRue County Band of Hawks, I would like to thank John Rizer, owner of Amazin’ Glazin’ Donuts for graciously donating food to the band students during band camp. I would also like to extend a thank you to Lorri Wiley for delivering the food. The students looked forward to the wonderful gift each day.

    Sincerely,

    Patty Ford, Band Parent

  • Speed limit signs cause for concern

    Dear Editor,

    On my drive to Campbellsville I saw one speed limit sign at the 12 miles marker which read 55 miles per hour. The people driving their vehicles, cars, trucks, semi’s, are traveling at least 70, 80, 90, or more miles an hour. They were passing me as if saying; “get out of my way.”
