  • Maybe if they see it, something will change

    My name is Shianne Thompson and I am 12 years old.

    I live out in the country and every couple of weeks, me, my brother and mamaw or papaw go out and pick up cans on Edlin Hill in Roanoke. The last time me and my mamaw went out and picked up cans I asked her why people had to throw their trash out on our property. She told me just because they were too lazy to take it to the dump. The dump is five or six miles down the road.

    Reconsider LIFT

  • ‘Own up to it’

    Clara Mae Druen, longtime subscriber of The LaRue County Herald News, called Monday to let us know someone – who either wasn’t paying attention to his driving or had to maneuver around something in the roadway – had struck her mailbox and newspaper box. The posts are twisted and will need to be replaced.

    The driver left behind his right front headlight.

  • A Forge of Men

    Twenty boys and twenty more

    Upon the practice field;

    Some pull their weight,

    Some at the gate,

    “Come boys, let’s do some more.”

    Twenty boys and twenty more

    All beside the field;

    The practice o’er,

    The match before,

    The waiting now a chore.

    Twenty boys and twenty more

    Engaged upon the field;

    Battle rages,

    Sound of ages,

    Some bloody, tired and sore.

    Twenty men and twenty more

    Blood drive a success, returns Dec. 9

    I want to thank the 29 individuals who volunteered to donate blood Tuesday at the Hodgenville Woman’s Club. We received 25 good units.

    A double thanks goes to Nick Boone and Junior Puyear for donating “double reds.”

    Thanks to Becky Loyall, Linda Stearman and Rob Brown for working at the drive. Thanks to The Sweet Shoppe for a tray of fudge.

    The blood drive is sponsored by the Hodgenville Woman’s Club and will return Dec. 9.

  • Just Ask

    I believe Interim Mayor Kenny DeVore broke the law when he appointed Larry Davis to fulfill his term on city council. Could you check on it?

    ~•~

     

    We requested a copy of the City Council minutes from June 9 – the date of Davis’ appointment – and reviewed the video taken that night.

    The minutes say Mayor DeVore “suggested the appointment of Larry Davis to the vacant City Council seat. Glenda Wathen motioned to accept the recommendation and Jim Phelps seconded the motion. All council members approved.

  • LETTER: Walking trails a pleasure

    LETTER: Local fall beauty

    It seems that fall draws me out to explore our local, nature escapes. There are many local opportunities.

    Recently I have enjoyed two walking trails. They are both beautiful this time of year. There is a nice trail off the picnic area at Abraham Lincoln’s Birthplace National Historic Park. This one gives a person chances to make it a short excursion or you can follow the entire trail.

    For years now I have walked this trail believing I had seen all it had to offer.

    Lincoln Days: Best in Kentucky

    On behalf of the Lincoln Days board of directors, I would like to thank everyone who participated in the 43rd annual Lincoln Days celebration.

    This year we celebrated Kentucky’s best — and we witnessed the best of Kentucky time and time again all weekend.

    We saw the best in Kentucky neighborliness when wind and rain gusted through Lincoln Square at 9:30 p.m. on Friday night and our vendors helped each other to secure their booths.
