  • LETTER: Children at play signs: are they legal?

    Dear Editor,

    Traffic signs are installed on our highways for many reasons. They may inform us of the need to stop, the speed limit, street name or which direction to go. Warning signs alert us to unexpected hazards on our roads. Signs help us obey the laws, find our destination and keep us from running off the road. They help us to stay safe whether we are a motorist, bicyclist or pedestrian.

  • Happy Father's Day

    Well it’s almost time to celebrate dad again with ties and cards that are funny or made from the hands of the littlest of these to show just how special Daddy really is.

    My Daddy, named John Samuel, was always called “Jack.” He used to say, “all great men named John are called Jack,” and he was one of the great ones.

  • The things we do for our children

    When my daughter Natalie was young, she wanted to get her ears pierced. And even though she wanted her ears pierced, she was afraid of needles. Her solution, one that was clever and smart, was for me to get my ears pierced to show her it did not hurt.

  • Things that make you wonder

        What if only one person from every county in Kentucky decided to go vote after all on election day? Would we be facing a recanvass this Thursday? The Republican Gubernatorial race was won unofficially by 83 votes, and there are 120 counties in Kentucky. I wonder....

    Dear Editor,

    Regarding the upcoming election for State Senator on May 17, LaRue County Democrats have the opportunity to vote for two candidates running for State Senator in District 5, that includes LaRue County.

    I strongly encourage all voters to check out the candidates on http://www.google.com and type in each candidate’s names.

    Type in Leslie J. Stith and in a separate search type in Richard L. Alvey.

    Voters now can make their own decision on who you want as a State Senator.

    Thanks

    Don Martin

    Dear Editor

    Thanks to the hundreds of Republican voters of LaRue County who turned out to vote in the March 5 Presidential Caucus. The Republican Party of LaRue County received many favorable comments about the organization and conduct of the Caucus. The Caucus was a good example of representative democracy in action. Based on caucus results, delegates have been selected to represent Kentucky at the National Convention in July.
