  • LETTER: Fly the flag every day

     A few years ago, Congress passed into law proclaiming June 14 as National Flag Day.

    A great many do so in this county today. At one time, this wasn’t so here.

    Americans who have lived in a country outside of the good old USA, serving there, not being liked because you are Americans, you know they despise you, yet you do your duty. As you are driving on their roads, you drive by an American installation and you see the old red, white, blue, then you feel very proud to be an American. Then you know why some of us fly the flag every day.

  • LETTER: Learn about industrial hemp

     A public forum about industrial hemp will be held 2 p.m. June 16 at the Marion County Agriculture Center.

    Is it true that Daniel Boone was wearing hemp underwear under his buckskin clothes?

    Is it true that the first Model A Ford had 40 percent hemp on it body frame? And it ran on industrial hemp gas?

    Is it true that you can make over 100 items from hemp?

    Is it really true that we are importing industrial hemp from 33 countries?

  • LETTER: Red Hill Cemetery Commission to meet

    Monday, July 9 marks one of only two times a year the Red Hill
    Cemetery Commission meets to discuss issues concerning the cemetery.

  • LETTER: E-cycling was a success

    June 2 was another demonstration that people in our environs do indeed care about protecting creation.

    St. Joseph Elementary School in Bardstown provided their spacious parking lot for the 5th Catholic Charities of Louisville electronics recycling day. This effort was endorsed by County Judge Executive Dean Watts,  Catholic Parishes in Nelson County: Basilica of St Joseph Proto Cathedral, St. Monica, St. Thomas, St. Catherine of Alexandria, Immaculate Conception, St. Gregory and St. Michael; and Sisters of Charity of Nazareth.

  • LETTER: Pets need special care in hot weather

     Hot weather is upon us and with the rise in temperatures comes much suffering for animals.

    Dogs are descendents of the wolf, an animal that spends its days in the cool forests or in rock shelters. Just as the wolf seeks shelter from the sun, dogs need shade. Rather than providing shade, a dog house sitting in the sun quickly becomes an oven. Deprived of shade a dog can die a slow and painful death from heat stroke. Dog houses need to be placed under a large tree or a side porch needs to be built on the house to provide shade.

  • LETTER: Golf scramble for American Red Cross had many sponsors

     We would like to say thank you to those that supported the American Red Cross Golf Scramble held May 18 at the LaRue County Golf Course. The following are individuals or businesses who donated to the American Red Cross in support of the tournament:

  • LETTER: Auction for Africa fundraiser was a success

     A huge thank you to all the LaRue County businesses and individuals who donated items for our Auction for Africa fundraiser. We are blessed to live in such a great community. There’s not enough room to list all of them that made donations.

    I would like to give recognition to Arrowhead Archery and Pawn, owned by Louie and Melissa Payne. They donated their entire outdoor archery facility for our Aiming for Africa bow-shoot and allowed us to have all the proceeds. They are great folks operating a thriving business in Hodgenville and LaRue County.
