Letters

  • LETTER: Litter a nuisance

    Dear editor,

    My name is Sandy Kidd and I am the Local Missions Leader for Parkway Baptist Church at 325 Old Sonora Road in Hodgenville. I was able to organize a group of seven on Saturday, October 29 who participated in roadside clean up on Old Sonora Road, Dorsey Lane and Tonieville Road.

    It is amazing what people will throw out on the roadside. The most interesting items we found were seven bags of kitty litter, used kitty litter that is.

  • Letter to the editor - Don’t let presidential race overshadow other races on the ballot

    Dear Editor,

    We’d like to encourage your readers to get to know the candidates on the ballot before they vote this election. Presidential races sometimes overshadow down ballot races and this year is no exception. Please know there are other very important offices on the ballot including U.S. Senate, Congress, State Senate, all 100 seats of the Kentucky State House and city council races.

  • Letter to the editor - Concerned over local sales tax

    Dear Editor,

    On November 8, voters in Kentucky will elect General Assembly members. This is important because these state legislators will once again consider the local option sales tax. This constitutional amendment would allow local governments to add a new local one percent sales tax in addition to the 6 percent state sales tax already paid on taxable goods. If this happens it will hurt consumers, businesses, and Kentucky’s economy.

  • Letter to the editor - To the dispatcher who went above and beyond, thank you

    Dear Editor,

    I am enclosing a copy of a letter sent to Craig Dunn who is the E-911 director and supervisor of a dispatcher named Emmanuel Collado.

    A group of senor citizens needed help last Tuesday night and he came to our assistance. We appreciated what Mr. Collado did for us as this letter enclosed will explain.

    Dear Mr. Dunn,

  • 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: Thank you for support

    Dear Editor,

    I would like to thank Cindy Cruse, manager of Save A Lot, and an anonymous band parent for the donation of snacks and water for the Band of Hawks. It’s community support that glues our group together.

    Sincerely,

    Patty Ford

  • 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.

  • Hate taking control of election - Letter to the editor

    Dear editor,

    What have our country and LaRue County become that I can’t have a Hillary sign in my yard without someone spraying graffiti above her name? Hate has taken control of this election. I can’t understand how people think it’s ok to print something as vulgar as this in public where little children on school buses can see it or maybe some of your mothers on the way to church. I believe our county and country are better than this.

    Sincerely,

    Phinis Hundley

  • Students’ safety becoming a concern - Letter to the editor

    Dear editor,

    As we transition from summer break to the fall semester of school in LaRue County, along with changing schedules and eager children, there also comes the reappearance of school buses on LaRue County roadways. 

  • Importance of attending the tax hearing - Letter to the editor

    Dear Editor

    The 2016-17 school year is off to a tremendous start. I want to thank each LaRue County Schools student, parent, teacher, staff member and volunteer for their commitment to what is sure to be a successful year. As a parent and a business owner, I am honored to serve as a member of the LCS Board of Education.
