• Thank you from Fair Board President

    Dear Editor,

  • LETTER: Thanks for support from LaRue County

    Dear Editor,

    I am the Executive Director of SpringHaven Domestic Violence Program, which serves all eight counties of the Lincoln Trail Area Development District. Our state-certified Victim Advocates provide services and advocacy to victims of domestic violence and their dependent children. We are funded primarily through grants and donations from the community. Without the support we receive from the community, our services would not be possible.

    Thank you to our local law

    enforcement partners

    Dear Editor,

    The Hodgenville Police Department would like to thank both the LaRue County Sheriff’s Office and the Kentucky State Police for their continued support of our efforts.

    HPD received a grant from the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety in order to conduct enforcement operations. In addition to our regular 40 hour week schedule, officers worked an additional 60.5 hours of overtime. The overtime included 34.5 patrol hours as well as 26 hours devoted to safety operations.

    Dear Editor,

    Some events are once in a lifetime. July 16, 2016 will be just such a day, one that we can all take part in celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the founding of the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace and commemorating the efforts of people of all stations in life from across the nation who took part in making it happen.

  • Relay for Life - Letter to the editor

    Dear Editor,

    The 19th Annual LaRue County Relay for Life held last Saturday, June 4, was a huge success. So many people contributed to this event that it is hard to cover all that deserve recognition. Whether you donated your change at the roadblock, bought something at a Relay auction or dinner, or donated in honor or in memory of someone, your contribution mattered. The eleven Relay teams, three of which were rookies, did an awesome job and are to be commended for their time and efforts.

  • LETTER: Heartbreaking litter on roadways

    Dear editor,

    Just a few days ago, I spent the morning, along with nine other church family members, picking up trash from a local road that holds sentimental value for me. I have traveled it numerous times over the years to church and grew to love its beauty.

  • LETTER: New billboards seem to take away community's value

    Dear Editor,

    It saddens me immensely to see billboards being erected on Lincoln Parkway.

    Our area is beautiful with the gently rolling farmland and these billboards are a distraction. I’m sure the County Planning and Zoning office had to approve the construction of these billboards. What were they thinking?

    I would much rather see a road sign saying Hodgenville, home of Ivy Brown, Miss Kentucky Basketball and Erin Boley, Miss Kentucky Basketball and Gatorade Basketball player of the year.

  • 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.


    Don Martin

    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.
