    Dear Editor,

    To the good people of Hodgenville, this is a note to let you know how much we enjoyed our visit to your lovely town during the Lincoln Days Celebration. It’s always good to see old friends and meet new ones. Thank you for your hospitality. We made it home in good time and we hope to see you next year.

    The Goodyear Blimp flew over Lincoln Days on Sunday afternoon during the Railsplitting Competition. It was a welcome sight to see after a dreary, rainy Saturday and a windy, messy Friday.

    The Lincoln Days Board works year-round to produce the festival, but the weather is something that is beyond our control. It was a welcome sight to see sunshine, blue skies and a blimp, but what was even more welcoming and even more appreciated, is the enduring community spirit that brought people out to support our vendors, exhibitors, musicians, entertainers, and event participants.

    Dear Editor,

    It is election season again, where the never ending commercials bombard us with a myriad of negative information. There is little, if any, positive information. That is my purpose, to speak to the good things that our elected officials do.

    Dear Editor,

    We would like to recognize the staff of Hardin Memorial Hospital for their personal and professional care during our recent stay. Special thanks to the Birth Place, ICU, Rapid response team and the Elizabethtown Physicians for Women. When someone goes to the hospital for the birth of their child, they don’t expect to utilize so many departments.

    Dear Editor,

    We would like to say THANK YOU to the community and all those involved in making the Ten Year Old Strikeout Cancer benefit ball tournament a huge success.  Our family cannot begin to express the gratefulness and gratitude we have for our family, friends, and the community.  Josh, the kids, and I are truly humbled by the outpouring from everyone involved with making it happen.

  • Thanks for playing a role in LCHS athletics

    Dear Editor:

    During this time of the year we are reminded of the many sacrifices that our great military forces have endured over the years. We as a country cannot say “thank you” enough for the freedoms we share.

  • Committe thanks those who supported Relay

    On behalf of the LaRue County Relay for Life Leadership Committee, we wish to publicly thank the many, many LaRue residents who helped make Relay 2015 a huge success. Though the weather forced us to close early, the committee is convinced that hosting the event on the square was a great decision and we look forward to continuing future Relays there. This year was a learning experience and we are excited about some additional changes for 2016.

  • Thanks to coaches, donors to sports camp

    We would like to thank the coaches and contributors who helped so much with the free Another Level Basketball Camp held June 16-18.

  • LETTER: From the editor

    Thank you
    Thank you to the many people who have stopped by the office to offer encouragement and kind words over the years – and most recently as I leave my job at The LaRue County Herald News.
    Thank you also for the flowers, cards, gifts and phone calls.
    Friday’s reception was lovely and I appreciate my co-workers for putting it together.
    A special thanks to Colonel Perkins AKA Meat Loaf for sharing his vocal skills at the reception. Hot patootie, indeed.
