    LETTER: Contact legislators about Bluegrass Pipeline

    I am very concerned about the proposed Bluegrass Pipeline that would transport natural gas liquids through Kentucky. NGLs are not the same as natural gas: they are highly flammable, hazardous liquids remaining after natural gas is extracted from the ground and include benzene, which causes cancer.

  • Honoring Elizabeth Bell: Worthy is She

    Worthy is She
    A poem written by Rev. Aaron L. Moss for Elizabeth Thurman Bell, Black History LaRue County Citizen of the Year.

    She is the worthy one, so wonderful, so gentle and free yet so strong that everyone who models her can do no wrong.
    She is a dependable source of comfort to know. A teacher, encourager but most of all, she is a God sent Mother who wants everyone to grow.
    She brings joy with purpose in mind and is living proof that love is kind.
    She covers everyone with her loving wings and lifts her soft voice to sing.

  • LETTER: Say 'No' to the pipeline

     No to the pipeline

    As distraught landowners along the proposed route for the Bluegrass hazardous liquids Pipeline, we wish to express our dismay upon finding stakes on our property on Sunday, Feb. 16.  On two occasions, we have adamantly told the pipeline reps that we said “No” to the pipeline and did not want them on our property. 

  • LETTER: Company showed heart in time of family's need

     Last Saturday, I attended the funeral of a neighbor: Mrs. Elizabeth Gardner. Now the fact that I attended her funeral is not what this is about. You see, Mrs. Gardner was the mother of two daughters – Brenda and Donna – who work at Nationwide Uniform Corp.

    We noticed that one would work and the other would stay at home and care for their mother – then it would be reversed. Nationwide allowed them to do this.

  • LETTER: Awake and think

     Awake and think

    “God Bless America” is the way the hymn begins and I truly believe he has done just that. America has always had an abundance of food, water, freedom and many other blessings, but what is happening here now?

  • LETTER: Blood drive thanks

     Blood drive thanks

    I want to thank the 29 individuals who volunteered to give blood Tuesday at the Hodgenville Woman’s Club. We received 26 good units of blood.

    Thanks to the volunteers who assisted with the drive – Becky Loyall and Rob Brown.

    Thanks to The Sweet Shoppe for a tray of fudge.

    The community blood drive is sponsored by the Hodgenville Woman’s Club. The blood drive will return April 8.

    Cities and counties small and large across Kentucky have big dreams for their communities – ideas that are transformative and can have lasting impact for generations.

  • LETTER: Retirees monitor bill

    Kentucky Public Retirees monitor legislative session

    State and county government retirees will be closely watching the events of the Kentucky General Assembly 2014 legislative session. At stake are the pensions and benefits of retirees, current and future. 

    Like many across the nation, our members, as well as those who will soon retire, continue to be very concerned about the future of their promised retirement pensions. The current legislative session will have a significant impact.

  • Just Ask

    Tax a tax?
    I do not feel you answered my question in an earlier Just Ask. While dining in E’town recently, I noticed on my bill that Kentucky state taxes were assessed on top of the local restaurant tax. Is it legal to tax a tax?
