  • 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

    Thank you to the 33 individuals who volunteered to donate blood on April 9 at the Hodgenville Woman’s Club. Four individuals gave using the “double red” procedure.

    We received 36 good units of blood and met our goal.

    Thanks to Rob Brown, Becky Loyall and Lois Whelan for assisting at the drive and The Sweet Shop and Geneva’s Florist for items donated.

  • LETTER: Egg hunt was an awesome event

    Awesome Events and The LaRue County Fairgrounds would like to extend a special thanks and appreciation to all the businesses and individuals who helped us make our Easter egg hunt at the fairgrounds on March 23, such a success.  We couldn't have done it without each and everyone of you.

    Thank you all.

  • 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.

  • LETTER: Small, small world

    I read with interest in your March 6 paper the article about the Ragland trip to the Holy Land.

    Having grown up in the Maxine community, I know the Raglands well.

    My wife and I visited Israel in March 2012. At our first lunch stop in the iddle of nowhere northeast of Tel Aviv, I mentioned to one of our tour group that I was originally from Kentucky. A lady from another tour group casually walking by heard the conversation and said, “Oh, really. What part of Kentucky?” 

  • LETTER: Special District bill should remain in original form

     I applaud the efforts of State Auditor Adam Edelen for addressing the issue of special district accountability in Kentucky. A requirement for citizens to have confidence in government and the services it provides is to have an open, transparent and accountable system. The content of HB 1 ensures this goal is reached. However, potential changes in the language may stall or kill the effort. We cannot let this happen.
