  • LETTER: Shock probation for DUI offenses should be stopped

     Shock probation for DUI deaths should be stopped

    I am Debbie Moskwa of Michigan. My son Ricky Moskwa, 24, was killed in a four-car crash May 5, 2002 while traveling through Kentucky.

    Vincent Rutledge served only 8 months of a 13-year sentence. Matthew Scott Burton was sentenced to seven years and was denied shock probation. They crash also killed Carmen Williams of Ohio and seriously injured my husband, Rick in the crash.

  • LETTER: Conservation programs need protection

    I am a tree farmer in Hart County. Along with Kentucky’s other 467,000 family forest owners, I am proud that my woodland property provides my community with clean air, clean water, wildlife habitat, recreational opportunities and forest products. Most people think that the federal government or big industry owns most of Kentucky’s 467,000 acres of forests, but, in fact, most of Kentucky's forests are owned primarily by family farmers. 

  • LETTER: Loved Christmas on the Square

    Hallelujah, Hodgenville!  Last Saturday night Hodgenvillians came together in the spirit of the season.

    While I was in the Square, excited children and their parents hurried to talk with Santa. Others took a horse-drawn wagon ride around the city’s Christmas tree while the statue of our hometown President watched.

  • Hometown news should be free

    You know your from Larue County when you live far, far away and you can read the Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, New York Times and hundreds of other newspapers ... but you can't read the Larue County Herald because you have to be a paid subscriber to read the paper online. And you can't subscribe to the free limited access account if you live outside the US and don't have a US mailing address

    Thank you Larue County Herald.

  • LETTER: Take care of your animals

    Winter, with its bitter wind, rain and snow, is rapidly approaching. Now is the time to check our dog houses, patching and repairing all cracks and leaks. It is also time for new, clean bedding. Straw is the best and this bedding will need to be replaced often; putting a board along the bottom of the door opening will help keep the bedding inside the house. Also, turning the door away from the wind helps protect your dog from the cold.

  • LETTER: Crawfords bid farewell to LaRue County

    For 34 years Bill and I have been members of this community. We have worked alongside you and watched your children grow into adults with children of their own.

    We’re moving to Leitchfield so we can be near our parents and while we look thankfully forward, we’re sad to leave this community behind.

  • LETTER: Remember the children during the holidays

    As we embark on the holiday season, our thoughts are filled with images of gathering around a table with relatives and loved ones. While we’ll spend plenty of time at shopping malls and parties in the coming weeks, the most festive and warming holiday setting remains the home.

    That is, if you have a home.

  • LETTER: Lincoln Memorial ceremony gave time to reflect

    I just wanted to thank everyone that helped with the centennial celebration of the dedication of the Lincoln Monument.

    The park was beautiful, the staff is very professional, and hearing our State Champion LaRue County High School Band play those particular selections made for a great event.

  • Band appreciates community support

    I am writing to express my sincere thanks to this community for its support of the LaRue County High School Band. The last two weeks’ congratulatory messages, gestures, and events associated with the Band of Hawks’ State Championship have been heartwarming for both members and staff. God has blessed this organization tremendously.
