  • LETTER: Unexpected lessons

    Dear Editor,

    On February 24, the LaRue County High School baseball team was given a special opportunity. We were able to perform a community service, which would also serve as a fundraiser for our program.

    Knowing that the Trash for Cash program would be a nice thing to do for our community and make a little money for the baseball program is what attracted us so much when it was brought to the team’s attention by a parent. The teambuilding and the sense of servanthood that was achieved by our young men was an added bonus.

  • LETTER: Concern over alcohol sales

    Dear Editor,

    I agree with Brother Troutman on as I call it, the whiskey deal; that’s what it was when I was young. I went to several bootleggers and got it for my dad with a note that he would pay when he got paid from work.

  • LETTER: Too much concern over revenue not enough about people

    Dear Editor,

    I’ve had great pride in being able to tell people that I am from Hodgenville and LaRue County, a dry city in a dry county. I, along with others, was disheartened to see the issue of alcohol sales being brought up for consideration in our town.

  • LETTER: Views on alcohol from a Christian perspective

    Dear Editor,

    I would like to respond both as a Christian and a pastor to the recent articles in the newspaper regarding the petitions now being circulated in our community to have a vote regarding the sale of alcohol. Already I have read some statements referring to Scriptures that, while they were made with sincerity, are completely wrong and inaccurate.

  • Letter to the editor - Thank you Sunrise Volunteers

    Dear Editor,

  • Serving in memory, honor of a friend

    Dear Editor,

    Twenty Years ago on February 11, 1997, the town of New Haven, Kentucky said goodbye to one of its sons. Michael J. Cecil was tragically injured during a training exercise with the U.S. Marine Corp at Parris Island in South Carolina. His loss was felt across the small community, not only because at the time his mother, Tessie Cecil, was mayor, but also because his dedication to volunteering with the New Haven/Rolling Fork Fire Department.

  • LETTER: Thank you for generosity in "Drop your drawers" campaign

    Dear Editor,

    The LaRue County Public Library would like to thank everyone who participated in the “Drop Yours Drawers at Your Library” Campaign. Thanks to your generosity we were able to collect 873 pair of underwear for the Family Resource Center.

    Sincerely,

  • LETTER: Thank you for support, celebrating Morrison Santa's Helpers 50th year

    Dear Editor,

    Snookie Morrison and Santa’s helpers would like to thank everyone in the community that helped with our program for our 50 Year Anniversary. We cannot express our thanks for all of your donations of toys, food, money, escorts and any other acts of kindness. We could not make this possible without help from the community. We would also like to say a special thank you to Eli Sisney (son of Jesse and Liz Sisney) for coming out to help Santa hand out treats.

    See you next year!!

  • LETTER: On behalf of my family, thank you

    Dear Editor,

  • Santa’s Helpers need our help

    Dear Editor,

    It’s my fourth year helping out with the Morrison Family and Santa’s Helpers. My first year helping I had just lost my son; it was a terrible time. As I was walking into the Buffalo Fire Department, there was a little girl walking out with a toy bigger than she was and a smile that could light up the whole county. Her smile probably saved my life.

    I watched them give toys, clothes, bicycles and saw how happy the children were and their parents. They got me get through another Christmas. They will help me get through this Christmas.
