  • Letter to the editor - Don Martin

    Dear Editor,

    Regarding the upcoming election for State Senator on May 17, LaRue County Democrats have the opportunity to vote for two candidates running for State Senator in District 5, that includes LaRue County.

    I strongly encourage all voters to check out the candidates on http://www.google.com and type in each candidate’s names.

    Type in Leslie J. Stith and in a separate search type in Richard L. Alvey.

    Voters now can make their own decision on who you want as a State Senator.

    Thanks

    Don Martin

  • Letter to the editor - Gill Myers

    Dear Editor

    Thanks to the hundreds of Republican voters of LaRue County who turned out to vote in the March 5 Presidential Caucus. The Republican Party of LaRue County received many favorable comments about the organization and conduct of the Caucus. The Caucus was a good example of representative democracy in action. Based on caucus results, delegates have been selected to represent Kentucky at the National Convention in July.

  • Letter: Concerning the pool closing

    Dear Editor,

    In last week’s paper the comment was made by the Mayor that the pool was only used frequently by local daycares and that they were charged a discount from the regular admission. Being the owner of Laugh-n-Learn Childcare Center, I would like to speak on the behalf of my facility, which I feel was targeted by the Mayor.

    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
