    Is there an ordinance regulating how tall grass can grow within Hodgenville city limits?
    Some of the areas are turning into eyesores.

    City Clerk MaDonna Hornback said grass can be 10-inches tall before it is considered a nuisance. However, if the lot is two acres or more, the ordinance does not apply.
    If you would like a property added to the city’s growing list of  “yards that need to be mowed,” call City Hall at 358-3832.

    Propes is a community treasure
    I met Donnie Propes in 1986, while his wife Janet served as the county treasurer. It was easy to tell that they were both God fearing people who loved their community and were willing to do anything for their friends and family.
    Janet was taken far too early in life from all of us, as we lost a wonderful lady in our community. But Donnie picked up the pieces and carried on as Janet and God would want him to.

  • Washington's focus

    Dear Friends,

     

  • Hodgenville courtesy appreciated

    On April 15, in the strip mall in Hodgenville, I fell flat face forward at a store.

    I had a heartwarming experience from the local folks. I was very upset with myself and stated so. The folks calmed me and brought a blanket for me and something to cushion my head. They called the ambulance and there was even a retired nurse there.

    This all brought back memories of Hodgenville of the 1930’s and ’40’s.

    I want to thank those folks and I am truly humbled by their kindness which will not soon be forgotten.

  • LETTER: Displeased with dismissal of juvenile case

    Two windows were shot out by a juvenile during Christmas holiday on Cox Lane. The shots were fired from Building 3, Lincoln Village Apartments.

    A 5-year-old boy saw the shooter and told whom he was. An older boy who saw the juvenile with the BB gun also stated that the same juvenile had been out back of my home on Cox Lane with the gun. Also that he was with the shooter at the time.

  • LETTER: Thirty-three donated blood

  • LETTER: Family appreciates firefighters

    Family appreciates help

    A special thank you to the Buffalo and LaRue County fire departments for going the extra mile in helping me when my home burned down and I lost everything. A special thanks to LeeAnn and Wayne. You never know how goodhearted people are until you need help.

    May God bless and keep all of you safe.

  • LETTER: Looking for photos of Ovesen Heights

     My father was pastor of Ovesen Heights Baptist Church from about 1972 to 1976.

    I am looking for photos of all the churches where he pastored. I recall being in the 25-member youth choir with Beulah Davenport leading. My mother played the piano.

    I have been a minister of music and youth since 1979 and am still going strong with a youth group of 22.

    If you have photos of the church you are willing to share, please send them or contact me at jimmyjj333@gmail.com.
