Letters

  • LETTER: Cemetery flowers: Thou shalt not steal

     On a very nice fall day, as countless many previous times, I drove into Red Hill Cemetery.

    The scene was so beautiful; a nice smooth pavement, the result of a job well done – the many hues of the leaves glistening in the sun. In all, a perfect day to enjoy a visit and pay respect to my parents; that is, until I approached only to discover someone had taken not only the beautiful fall arrangement of my parents, as well as the decorative wrought iron stand to which they were attached.

  • LETTER: Vote 'yes' on hunting amendment

     I am writing this letter to inform my fellow Kentucky hunters and fishermen of the important decision we all have on Nov. 6. As you may already know, there is a question on this year’s ballot concerning our fundamental hunting rights and an amendment to the Kentucky Constitution.

  • LETTER: Good time had by all

     The Hodgenville Goodtime Cruisers would like to thank Mayor Terry Cruse and the City of Hodgenville for allowing us to use the downtown area to host our monthly cruise-in.

    We also wish to thank our sponsors and local businesses who supported us and helped make 2012 a success. Thanks to everyone for a great year and we look forward to a bigger and better 2013.

    See you in April.

    Terry Taylor

    President, Goodtime Cruisers 

  • LETTER: Antique tractor and gas engine show a success

     We want to thank everyone for turning out for this year’s Lincoln Days Antique Tractor and Gas Engine Show. We hope everyone enjoyed themselves.

    This event would not be possible without the continued support of our sponsors: McDowell Farm Machinery, Lincoln National Bank, Southern States, Price Smith and Kentucky Farm Bureau, Nall’s Specialized Hauling, LaRue County Pork Producers and LaRue County Beef Association.

  • LETTER: Blood drive was successful

     Thank you to the 25 individuals who volunteered to donate blood on Oct. 9 at the Hodgenville Woman’s Club.

    One individual gave using the “double red” procedure. We received 25 good units of blood and met our goal.

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

    Many thanks for your support of the community blood drive which is sponsored by the Hodgenville Woman’s Club.

    The next blood drive is Dec. 11.

  • LETTER: Thank you from Springhaven

     Nationally, one in four women and about one in seven men will experience serious effects of domestic violence in their lifetime. Sadly, there are also more than three million children who witness and are affected by domestic violence in their home each year.  

  • LETTER: Washington prescribes Wall Street rules for Main Street

     It’s a long way from Wall Street, but communities such as LaRue County are on track to face the kinds of regulations imposed on the monumental financial institutions in New York. Regulations due out in a matter of weeks would unnecessarily subject Main Street community banks to the same complex capital requirements as Wall Street megabanks. If you don’t think that’s going to make a tangible difference that will hurt LaRue County, think again.

  • LETTER: Live arts coming to Hodgenville

     I like saying, “Once in a Blue Moon.” It seems funny to say. The term refers to certain long or extra day months that offer two full moons within the same one-month cycle and we recently experienced one.

    We are about to experience something equally as rare: live stage arts entertainment. On Oct. 26, 27 and 28, Campbellsville University Theatre Department will perform “Hairspray: Broadway’s Big Fat Musical Comedy Hit.” This performance will occur at the Hodgenville Civic Center.

  • LETTER: Class of 1972 students sought

      The LaRue County High School Class of ’72 would like to recognize the efforts of Steve Hornback to organize and host the 40th reunion on Oct. 6.

    A special thanks to him and to everyone who attended. We are still looking for information on classmates who did not attend the reunion. Please get in touch with me at jhornback@charter.net to provide your contact information for a class roster that we hope to distribute in a few weeks. 

  • LETTER: Project Graduation

     Project Graduation is a nationally recognized alcohol and drug-free party designed to give high school graduates a safe alternative to celebrating their special night. Statistics have shown that students celebrating on the evening of graduation can experience one of the most dangerous nights of their young lives. Each year, following their graduation ceremony LaRue County  High School students have the opportunity to attend a Project Graduation event at our school until 5 the next morning.
