  • Iris LaRue - Letter to the editor

    Dear Editor,

    Some events are once in a lifetime. July 16, 2016 will be just such a day, one that we can all take part in celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the founding of the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace and commemorating the efforts of people of all stations in life from across the nation who took part in making it happen.

  • Relay for Life - Letter to the editor

    Dear Editor,

    The 19th Annual LaRue County Relay for Life held last Saturday, June 4, was a huge success. So many people contributed to this event that it is hard to cover all that deserve recognition. Whether you donated your change at the roadblock, bought something at a Relay auction or dinner, or donated in honor or in memory of someone, your contribution mattered. The eleven Relay teams, three of which were rookies, did an awesome job and are to be commended for their time and efforts.

  • LETTER: Heartbreaking litter on roadways

    Dear editor,

    Just a few days ago, I spent the morning, along with nine other church family members, picking up trash from a local road that holds sentimental value for me. I have traveled it numerous times over the years to church and grew to love its beauty.

  • LETTER: New billboards seem to take away community's value

    Dear Editor,

    It saddens me immensely to see billboards being erected on Lincoln Parkway.

    Our area is beautiful with the gently rolling farmland and these billboards are a distraction. I’m sure the County Planning and Zoning office had to approve the construction of these billboards. What were they thinking?

    I would much rather see a road sign saying Hodgenville, home of Ivy Brown, Miss Kentucky Basketball and Erin Boley, Miss Kentucky Basketball and Gatorade Basketball player of the year.

  • Letter to the editor - Don Martin

    Dear Editor,

    Regarding the upcoming election for State Senator on May 17, LaRue County Democrats have the opportunity to vote for two candidates running for State Senator in District 5, that includes LaRue County.

    I strongly encourage all voters to check out the candidates on http://www.google.com and type in each candidate’s names.

    Type in Leslie J. Stith and in a separate search type in Richard L. Alvey.

    Voters now can make their own decision on who you want as a State Senator.

    Thanks

    Don Martin

  • Letter to the editor - Gill Myers

    Dear Editor

    Thanks to the hundreds of Republican voters of LaRue County who turned out to vote in the March 5 Presidential Caucus. The Republican Party of LaRue County received many favorable comments about the organization and conduct of the Caucus. The Caucus was a good example of representative democracy in action. Based on caucus results, delegates have been selected to represent Kentucky at the National Convention in July.

  • Letter: Concerning the pool closing

    Dear Editor,

    In last week’s paper the comment was made by the Mayor that the pool was only used frequently by local daycares and that they were charged a discount from the regular admission. Being the owner of Laugh-n-Learn Childcare Center, I would like to speak on the behalf of my facility, which I feel was targeted by the Mayor.

  • Letter to the editor - Michelle Benningfield

    Dear Editor,

    Recently, Governor Matt Bevin’s proposed cuts to Kentucky’s budget have created outrage among Kentuckians. College students are facing uncertainty. We are already seeing budget cuts that will cause our universities to end various programs on our respective campuses with even more cuts to follow. However, college students will not be the only ones to suffer from these proposed cuts. All Kentuckians will be affected.

  • Letter to the editor - Rachel Richey

    Dear editor,

    If you could take two minutes today to help teach a child a valuable life-saving skill, would you do it? If you said “yes,” then I hope you’ll join me today by calling 1-800-372-7181 to leave a message for your state representative urging their support of Senate Bill 33.

    Once passed, this bill will give every high school student in Kentucky the chance to learn CPR. As the mother of a young daughter with a congenital heart defect who has needed CPR to save her life, I can’t describe the peace of mind this would give my family.

  • LETTER: Just do your job

    Just do your job

    Dear Editor,

    Mr. McConnell: Do your job or get out! Your job in Washington is to confirm judges or not confirm and to review budgets, not when it suits your fancy. You and your republican party have spent the last eight years wasting tax payers money paying you to do your job. Sitting around refusing to confirm a new judge or review the President’s budget is not doing your job. You have spent 8 years sticking it to the President.
