Letters

  • LETTER: A time for forgiveness

     I am a resident of Bowling Green, but lived in Hodgenville until age 25. I was married there and am a 1975 graduate of LaRue County High School.

    I would hope that everyone would consider the body of work and passion that Sam Sanders has for the school system.

    I do not excuse that he made a bad choice but everyone that has jumped on the “fire him" bandwagon has more than likely made many mistakes themselves – it’s just that Sam is in the public eye and they are not. That alone does not justify termination.

  • LETTER: School district has improved under Sam Sanders
  • LETTER: Girl Scouts collect cleaning products

     Girl Scouts collect cleaning products

    Girl Scout Troop 929 juniors are working on their bronze awards – the highest award they can achieve.

    The girls can make a difference and they are proud of what they can accomplish.

    They will be collecting personal hygiene and cleaning products – soaps, deodorant, toothbrushes, detergent and toilet paper – to help our community.  All donated products will be given to Hodgenville and Abraham Lincoln elementary schools.

  • LETTER: What I learned in Frankfort

     What I learned in Frankfort

    On March 21, with a bipartisan 75-16 vote, House Bill 31 passed the House and was sent to the Senate. Senate Leadership refused to assign this bill to a committee or allow a vote on Sen. Higdon's related SB 14.

  • LETTER: Questions remain about crash

    Questions remain

    On Jan. 29, my family suffered a tragic loss. My son and daughter lost the father they dearly loved.

    “Blue” Thomas Underwood was killed in an auto accident on Ky. 61 in front of the LaRue County Golf Course.

    Many questions remain about how the accident occurred. I write this letter as an appeal to anyone who witnessed the accident or was traveling on the roadway behind either vehicle.

  • LETTER: Some real snow

    I am a subscriber of your newspaper even though I live in Illinois. I enjoy reading your newspaper especially reading about your snowfall.

    I thought you would enjoy hearing about Illinois’ snowfall. We have received 78.8 inches of snow so far.

    Enclosed are photos of our snow. I hope you enjoy them.

  • LETTER: Support HB 31

    Do we live in a democracy? The dictionary defines a democracy as a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system.

    The passage of HB 31 by the House was an indication of democracy at work – a case of private property rights versus corporate interests. This bill prohibits the use of eminent domain by developers of hazardous natural gas liquids pipelines.

  • LETTER: Smell, begone

     In reference to Linda’s Lines, recommending tomato juice to kill skunk smell:

    Heloise says to forget the tomato juice and use or mix one quart bottle of peroxide, one-fourth cup of baking soda and a few drops or tablespoon of dishwashing detergent and wash items with the mix.

    It sure works for my husband. He tried it on our dog.

    Smell begone.

  • Family has adopted 470

    To all who travel Ky. 470 between Magnolia and Buffalo, please stop tossing your beer cans and bottles, cigarette packs, water bottles, fast food boxes, wraps and other trash out your vehicle windows – or let trash fly out the back of your truck.

    Family and friends of Aaron Barnes have adopted a part of this road to keep clean. I don’t know if you knew Aaron but he was a really good person.

    Why do you want to trash the land that Aaron loved?

    Thank you to everyone helping to keep the roadsides clean.

  • LETTER: Stop animal abuse

     I am writing about animal abuse.

    Animal abuse has been going on for a while now. A lot of animals have been beaten or neglected. I have no idea why a person wants to do that to animals. I know a way we could stop animal abuse is to start doing background checks every time someone wants to adopt an animal.

    So, people should stop beating and neglecting animals. They have not done anything to you so you have no reason to abuse and neglect animals.
