  • 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: Schools are a diamond in the rough

     LaRue County Schools were named one of four “Diamond in the Rough” district in Kentucky.

    Congratulations to Superintendent Sam Sanders, staff, teachers and LaRue County School Board for providing excellent student performance with highly efficient and frugal spending per student.

    The District strives to get better each day. How fortunate we citizens of LaRue County are to have leaders who are not only smart and capable but they are dedicated and compassionate about the success of each of our students.

  • LETTER: Officer's death wasn't thankless

     The death of Officer Mark Taulbee has been an eye-opener for this community. We always think of a tragedy happening to someone else.

    I am so proud of this community for coming together to show their respect and compassion for this family and his fellow officers. The outpouring of your presence and acts of kindness were overwhelming.

    Being a wife and mother of those in law enforcement made me realize maybe their job isn’t thankless. But why do we wait until a tragedy happens to say thank you or I appreciate your service?

  • LETTER: What's up with the buyer's premium?

     This past weekend I picked up a LaRue County Herald News as well as a Park City Daily News. My interest was to see what auctions were coming up.

    I found it interesting that the buyers in the LaRue County area were all being charged a straight 10 percent buyer’s premium on both real estate and personal property purchases at auction.

  • LETTER: Lifeline available to low-income

     The continual innovation in the telecommunications industry creates numerous new options from which Kentucky consumers can choose to best stay connected.  Despite the myriad of telecommunication options available to Kentuckians, economic challenges may make it difficult for some to remain connected to family, emergency services, employers and healthcare providers. To help low-income Kentuckians stay connected, the Lifeline (not to be confused with a medical alert program with a similar name) program may help.
