  • LETTER: Enjoyed Senior Citizen Day at the fair

    Senior Citizens enjoyed their day at the fair again this year, with a special thanks to Ann Morrison, all fair board members and helpers and the Bobby Morrison-Jim Phelps air-conditioned building.
    We want to send a special thanks to Katie Carter, coordinator of LaRue County Senior Citizens Center and helpers and all their gifts.

  • LETTER: Hawks cafeteria looks great

    I want to thank Phil Fulkerson, Steve Perkins, W. L. Miller, Arlie Gardner and the LaRue County Detention Center inmates who worked so diligently this summer to create the beautifully renovated cafeteria at the LaRue County High School.  
    They went above and beyond to ensure that our children will have a beautiful environment to enjoy their breakfast and lunch for many years to come, not to mention the many functions that will now be able to use this newly renovated space. Thank you again for all your dedication to our community and its children.  

  • LETTER: Miss LaRue County should be local

    Well, another fair has come and gone. I have heard a lot of feedback at the store on the way the Miss LaRue County Fair Pageant was done this year.
    Everyone along with myself seems to think that the one going to represent LaRue County at the state pageant should be from LaRue County not from another county representing LaRue County.
    In my opinion that makes our county look like it has nothing to offer in our county fair.

  • LETTER: Who is the real child abuser?

    Who is the real abuser?

    Who is the real child abuser when someone calls in on a family to child welfare and the accusations are false?

  • LETTER: Community involvement made golf scramble a success

  • LETTER: Happy to reconnect with old friend

    A few months ago, I sent an email looking for an old friend, Earl Thompson Jr., who was stationed at the same air base with me in Blytheville, Ark. You put it in the paper that I wanted to get in touch with him. One of his brothers, Clifford, saw it and called him.
    Earl and I began emailing. I am so glad you did that because now Earl is gone. His wife sent me an email informing me of Earl’s passing.
    Thank you for getting me in touch with Earl even though it was for a short time.

  • LETTER: Looking for extraordinary people

    Looking for extraordinary people

    I’m currently taking nominees for the next installment of the Kentucky’s Everyday Heroes book series, third volume. Criteria is: A living Kentuckian who has overcome extreme personal challenges and/or has given of themselves in a noble and sacrificial way. Their lives serve as examples to inspire others to greater acts of character. The nominee would be considered “ordinary,” commonly known only to people in their communities, but will have an “extraordinary” lasting impact.

  • LETTER: Watch your children as temperatures rise

    Watch your children
    Summer is here and we’re already seeing the dreaded headlines about children who are left inside hot cars, leading to heat stroke and even death.
    Since 1998, at least 13 children in Kentucky have died as a result of being left inside sweltering vehicles while their parents or caregivers shop, go to work or run errands. It’s just another example of the abuse and neglect that plagues Kentucky’s children.

  • LETTER: Administration is a judgment on America

  • LETTER: Enjoyed concert at park

    What a delightful hour we spent July 4 at Lincoln National Park listening to Saxton’s Cornett Band from Lexington. Dressed in period costumes and using authentic brass and percussion instruments, the band played beautiful arrangements of patriotic and popular songs from the Revolutionary and Civil War era.
    How pleasant and comfortable it was to sit under the trees at our lovely park for this special treat. I kept wishing that every LaRue Countian had been there.
