  • LETTER: Debt-free, believe it

     Debt-free, believe it

    A recent political ad made reference to LaRue County’s finances. The ad tried to give the appearance of there being significant debt for LaRue County.

    Just the opposite is true.

    LaRue County has zero debt in its general fund, road fund and EMS accounts. The only debt service payment made by LaRue Fiscal Court for any purpose is the LaRue County Jail.

  • LETTER: Dad is dedicated

      Dad is dedicated

    We would like to talk about our Dad, Russell McCoy. He is currently running for LaRue County sheriff. He has always been dedicated to the community of LaRue County even before he became a deputy sheriff. 

  • LETTER: Chooses Turner

     Chooses Turner

    I am one of a few people who offer a unique perspective on the race for county judge/executive. I have worked as an employee for both Tommy Turner and Joe Pearman. For me, the choice is clear: Re-elect Tommy Turner.

    When Tommy Turner first came into office after defeating Joe Pearman, I was apprehensive. My fears quickly eased when I saw how hard Tommy worked, how knowledgeable he was and how he always had the betterment of LaRue County as his top goal.

  • LETTER: A great egg hunt

     Awesome Events would like to thank all our volunteers from Freedoms Way Assembly of God, the special appearance of the Easter Bunny and all the business sponsors who helped with the Easter Egg Hunt this year. We had a great turn out.

    We want to thank Pizza Zone in Buffalo for all their help. We also want to thank Save-A-Lot, Our Hometown IGA, McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Subway, Lees Chicken and Papa John’s Pizza for all their support. A special shout out to Ann Morrison and Dixie Dunn for the yummy cookies. We hope to see everyone next Easter.

  • LETTER: Golf course history explained

     Golf course history explained

    As president of the LaRue County Golf Association, I have had several inquiries about the golf course.  I’m happy to respond to clear up any confusion that exists.

  • LETTER: Several in magazine's spotlight

    Several in magazine’s spotlight

    To whom it may concern:

    Recently, our small but mighty county was highlighted for many things that make this little place special. I read the reference to this in our local paper, but wanted to ensure those that work to ensure these businesses and events take place recognize that locals truly appreciate it. 

  • LETTER: There is a school system to run

    I am writing about Superintendent Sam Sanders’ DUI arrest.

    I am sure not saying this is good, but we are not perfect people. We are living in sad times. You can do good for years, then one mistake and people want to find a rope.

    I have not heard one person say Sam hasn’t done a good job.

    Our granddaughter told her grandmother, “I don’t care what they said. Sam has been nice to me.”

    Why can’t we be more like this 10-year-old girl?

  • LETTER: A time for forgiveness

     I am a resident of Bowling Green, but lived in Hodgenville until age 25. I was married there and am a 1975 graduate of LaRue County High School.

    I would hope that everyone would consider the body of work and passion that Sam Sanders has for the school system.

    I do not excuse that he made a bad choice but everyone that has jumped on the “fire him" bandwagon has more than likely made many mistakes themselves – it’s just that Sam is in the public eye and they are not. That alone does not justify termination.

  • LETTER: School district has improved under Sam Sanders
  • LETTER: Girl Scouts collect cleaning products

     Girl Scouts collect cleaning products

    Girl Scout Troop 929 juniors are working on their bronze awards – the highest award they can achieve.

    The girls can make a difference and they are proud of what they can accomplish.

    They will be collecting personal hygiene and cleaning products – soaps, deodorant, toothbrushes, detergent and toilet paper – to help our community.  All donated products will be given to Hodgenville and Abraham Lincoln elementary schools.
