    Upton misses the ‘Exchange’

    Thank you so much for the article in last week’s paper on Upton. I was disappointed that the Farmer’s Telephone Co. was not mentioned. It was indeed the hub of the town. It was one of the last, if not the last, “hand cranked” systems in the state of Kentucky.

    Turn everyone’s water back on
    There is a bully mentality at City Hall that has become unacceptable.

    My father, Jim LaRue, has had his water on Greensburg Street turned off by the City in the last three months not once but twice for alleged non-payment.

    In both instances, my father (who is very good with numbers) paid his bill on time via check. Both times, he was told by a city employee his check had not cleared. Interestingly, the other bills he paid the same day, via check, did clear.

    I have followed, with interest, the developments surrounding the so-called Bluegrass pipeline and still, for the life of me cannot figure out where the long term benefit is for the residents along the proposed route of Kentucky (LaRue, Nelson, Hardin, Anderson, Woodford, Scott and Franklin counties).

    I ask you, is it really worth the offered price to have your land disturbed for construction and to be at the mercy of the pipeline for any projects where ground is broken?

  • GUEST COLUMN - What’s wrong with a little pipeline through Kentucky?

     Local citizens are gradually hearing about a proposed Bluegrass Pipeline to run through Nelson County on its way from Pennsylvania and New York to the Gulf. It might be helpful to lay out some of the issues from the perspective of community sustainability.

    Child support is a team effort

    Thank you so much for the recent article acknowledging the hard work done by the Child Support Staff in the LaRue County Attorney’s office in the establishment and collection of child support.

    Younger students may receive laptops
    I heard LaRue County High School is replacing their student laptops. First of all, is this true? And secondly, are they available to the public for purchase?

    The Laptops of LaRue project was rolled out in October 2010. The intent was for the laptops to be used by LCHS students for four years before they were replaced.

    Superintendent Sam Sanders said the district is “already planning the “next four-year cycle.”

    I loved the pictures of the mini mall that were in the newspaper recently. These pictures were on page 22A and each picture had a caption beside, or below, with names and what the students were selling.

    The one thing that was missing from the collection of pictures was acknowledgement to the company that completed the shirts for the students. Blazin’ Xpressions in Hodgenville did all the shirts for the students to wear at the mini mall.
