    KDS Memorial dinner: ‘brilliant’

  • LETTER: Breast Cancer Truck and Tractor Pull

    If you donated or helped in some way to find a cure for breast cancer, we can honestly say we were blessed by your kindness.

    This year’s Burger King Breast Cancer Awareness Tractor pull was an overwhelming success with proceeds of $19,365.27 being donated to the Susan G. Komen Louisville breast cancer research program.

    So many people have said to me that it was a job well done. The job well done goes to Connie Heath. The Lord has used Connie so much during this event. She does so much and gets very little glory.

  • LETTER: Tuckers are known in Texas

    My distant cousin, Roland Bright, sent me a copy of your Oct. 2 article on the Tucker Cemetery. I found this very interesting. 

    I am the president of Silver Creek Heritage Society in Parker County, Texas. We just were granted a historical marker from the state for the story of Moses

    Tucker and his pioneering in Texas, along with a surviving house built by his son and my grandfather, Virgil Jasper Tucker.  My dad spoke fondly of a man he called “Uncle Rolley,” who I’m pretty sure was R.O. Tucker buried there at Hodgenville.

  • Bluegrass Pipeline: Step up, fiscal court

    I read with disappointment that the LaRue County Fiscal Court has no plans to take a position on the Bluegrass Pipeline. Some reports say most landowners are in favor of the pipeline, yet that appears to contradict the feeling within our community.

  • LETTER: Support the KDS fund, enjoy a show

    Tickets for the annual Kelly Dean Sanders Memorial luncheon are on sale now.

    A delicious luncheon and play by the LaRue County High School Speech Team will cost only $20. This worthy cause has helped hundreds of needy families purchase school clothes for their children for more than 30 years and will also help the speech team continue their winning tradition. 

    The play should be fun and features both students and community members in a hilarious comedy entitled “Love, Sex, and the IRS.” Tickets are on sale until Nov. 8. 

  • LETTER: Send the kids a postcard

    The fourth grade at Aviston Elementary School, located in southern Illinois, is learning about the United States and the different environments, climates, resources and highlights found in each region.

    The kids in the class think it would be fun to receive postcards, souvenirs, resources or any information about our great country from each of the 50 states.

    We hope that people who read this letter will be interested in mailing our class items pertaining to their state.

  • LETTER: Deceptive pipeline information

     Deceptive pipeline information

    A representative of the Williams company, Scott Carney, was on a local radio station recently. He said the Bluegrass Pipeline will create jobs. Because it would take business away from truckers, railroads and barge operators, who are now safely shipping natural gas liquids, these people will lose their jobs.

    It seems to me the pipeline is a job destroyer rather than creator.

  • LETTER: Lincoln Days Antique Engine and Tractor Show

    What a good Saturday for the antique tractor and engine show during the Lincoln Days festival.

    Blood drive draws 21
    I want to thank the 21 individuals who volunteered to give blood Tuesday at the Hodgenville Woman’s Club. We received 17 good units of blood.

    Thanks to the volunteers who assisted with the drive – Becky Loyall and Linda Stearman.

    The community blood drive is sponsored by the Hodgenville Woman’s Club. The blood drive will return Dec. 10.

    They’ll be back next year
    I’m not a great author, but my story is simple, it is about one of the greatest places I have been in America: Hodgenville, Ky.

    My wife Jennifer and I were on our way home from a family vacation in North Dakota. We were able to make a little detour and had read about the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. After a really enjoyable two days on the trail it was once again time to head for home.
