  • Passwords are good for you

    By Dr. Bob Spencer

    You hate creating passwords, you hate remembering passwords, you just hate passwords! Let’s face it, you are not alone. There are many things in this world that I dislike too, but I have to do them anyway, because they are good for me. Passwords are good for you!

  • Where did the time go?

    It’s that time of year when we get to watch cash strapped, teary eyed, last minute, emotional moms and dads of this year’s senior class, come in to the office to put that graduation ad in, or get a copy of the paper for somebody that lives out of town, or for the random, “I’m not sure where my paper went,” as we watch everyone trying to hang on to any memory of these big moments in their child’s life.

  • 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.

  • COLUMN: It's a duck thing, you wouldn't understand

    Over the years I’ve written more stories than I can count about tragedies, court cases, local government, closings, openings and even a few features. Some are forgettable – in fact, I’ve forgotten them myself. But the story – or more accurately, a column – that readers have asked about more than all the others combined was one of the first I penned.

  • COLUMN: Remembering Harvey Lee DeSpain

    Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today. James Dean (Feb. 8, 1931 – Sept. 30, 1955)

    My cousin Harvey was 23 when I was born. He was the son of my Aunt Marie – my dad’s sister – the one I was named after.

    Harvey Lee DeSpain spent the first years of his life in LaRue County, but he had already moved to the big city of Buechel when I met him. He didn’t visit us often, but his visits were memorable.

  • Conway owed voters defense, despite personal views

    We take Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway at his word when he says he thinks Kentucky's ban on same-sex marriage is discriminatory. He says he believes the state's constitutional amendment forbidding recognition of such unions will be overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court, which heard arguments on the matter last week. He may well be right.

    But we don't think his personal views on the subject, no matter how sincere, excuse him from refusing to defend the law on the state's behalf in his capacity as attorney general.
