  • 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.

  • LETTER: Praises for Renaissance Recycling

     I love the great work Jill Gray and her helpers at the Renaissance Recycling Center are doing for our community and the earth. Jill definitely has a wonderful vision for recycling and saving money. Every time I take my recycling and engage with the LaRue County Detention Center inmates, I see an even greater vision that Jill is creating.

  • LETTER: Thanks to community support of Woman's Club breakfasts

     The Hodgenville Woman’s Club thanks all the community support and attendance given to our annual Lincoln Days meal fundraisers. We appreciate everyone who helps our club with these events.

    Special thanks to Eudell Stearman, Charlie Wheeler, B.J. Clark, Elizabeth Kinslow, Alison LaRue, Susie Litteral, Jason Lamb, Rob Barnhill, Alex LaRue and Hodgenville Rotary Club for their ongoing help.

    The club uses the funds raised to maintain our historic clubhouse on the downtown square and offer a local college scholarship.
