  • LETTER: Trash for cash brings lessons

    Dear editor,

    I am writing to you about our recent participation in the LaRue County Trash for Cash cleanup in the Oak Hill and Maxine communities. This was a great opportunity for our adults and young people to come together, be a part of beautifying areas of our county and raising funds to be used in an upcoming mission trip to New York.

  • LETTER: Poker Run for child abuse awareness coming to LaRue

    Dear Editor,

    April is Child Abuse awareness month. The Travelers Widows Sons are teaming with SpringHaven, Inc. to host a poker run to help bring awareness and raise proceeds for the children’s program at SpringHaven Domestic Violence shelter.

    Belinda Burd, SpringHaven’s child advocate reached out to the Travelers Widows Sons to ask if they could assist in helping raise awareness and proceeds for the children’s program at SpringHaven.

  • Make throwing trash out the window a thing of the past

    Dear Editor,

    Mt. Moriah Baptist Church took part in the local Trash for Cash as a fundraiser for the June Honduras Mission Trip. From ages 9-66, twenty of us gathered early this past Saturday morning ready to battle on the local roadways.

    Armed with gloves, trash bags, grabbers and orange vests, all generously provided as part of the program, we met to clear 10 miles of late night drive thru detritus, and crying in your beer bottle blues.

  • Roadside clean up a humbling experience

    Dear Editor,

  • Letter to the editor - Expo Thank You

    Dear Editor,

    The staff of the LaRue County Extension Service and County Extension Council leaders would like to thank everyone who came out and supported our 2017 Extension Expo. We especially thank the LaRue County Schools for allowing use of the LCHS gym facility and Jailer, Johnny Cottrill and his staff for providing help with set up and take down of the Expo booths. We appreciate the community participation which sustains this annual event.

  • LETTER: Unexpected lessons

    Dear Editor,

    On February 24, the LaRue County High School baseball team was given a special opportunity. We were able to perform a community service, which would also serve as a fundraiser for our program.

    Knowing that the Trash for Cash program would be a nice thing to do for our community and make a little money for the baseball program is what attracted us so much when it was brought to the team’s attention by a parent. The teambuilding and the sense of servanthood that was achieved by our young men was an added bonus.

  • LETTER: Concern over alcohol sales

    Dear Editor,

    I agree with Brother Troutman on as I call it, the whiskey deal; that’s what it was when I was young. I went to several bootleggers and got it for my dad with a note that he would pay when he got paid from work.

  • LETTER: Too much concern over revenue not enough about people

    Dear Editor,

    I’ve had great pride in being able to tell people that I am from Hodgenville and LaRue County, a dry city in a dry county. I, along with others, was disheartened to see the issue of alcohol sales being brought up for consideration in our town.

  • LETTER: Views on alcohol from a Christian perspective

    Dear Editor,

    I would like to respond both as a Christian and a pastor to the recent articles in the newspaper regarding the petitions now being circulated in our community to have a vote regarding the sale of alcohol. Already I have read some statements referring to Scriptures that, while they were made with sincerity, are completely wrong and inaccurate.
