Today's Opinions

  • COLUMN: Welcome to the 'All Access' Herald News

     Well good morning, LaRue County! You may be asking the question, “I received a LaRue County Herald News newspaper today – why?”

  • COLUMN: Mortgage lifter ready for spring

     We had beautiful weather Saturday – and Sunday began with promising sunshine. By late afternoon, we had giant snowflakes.

  • Black History Month: Elizabeth Bell honored

     This year, the 2014 Black History LaRue County Citizen of the Year is someone everyone loves. She has a sweet, kind spirit, lots of personality and full of life. One who never complains and even during the most difficult times, she always maintains that warm smile. 

  • LETTER: Company showed heart in time of family's need

     Last Saturday, I attended the funeral of a neighbor: Mrs. Elizabeth Gardner. Now the fact that I attended her funeral is not what this is about. You see, Mrs. Gardner was the mother of two daughters – Brenda and Donna – who work at Nationwide Uniform Corp.

    We noticed that one would work and the other would stay at home and care for their mother – then it would be reversed. Nationwide allowed them to do this.

  • GRACE NOTES: I love him but ...

     I’ve always said motherhood is easy when you don’t have kids.

    Likewise, it’s easy to be married when you’re not. When you’re not married and you’re only dreaming about it, you imagine the ideal. In your imagination, you and your spouse say and do all the right things, and even your arguments are sweet and making up is rosy.

    In real life, however, marriage gets thorny, and sometimes bloody.

    Mostly, it’s just regular, with a few blips and annoyances along the way.

  • LETTER: Awake and think

     Awake and think

    “God Bless America” is the way the hymn begins and I truly believe he has done just that. America has always had an abundance of food, water, freedom and many other blessings, but what is happening here now?

  • LETTER: Blood drive thanks

     Blood drive thanks

    I want to thank the 29 individuals who volunteered to give blood Tuesday at the Hodgenville Woman’s Club. We received 26 good units of blood.

    Thanks to the volunteers who assisted with the drive – Becky Loyall and Rob Brown.

    Thanks to The Sweet Shoppe for a tray of fudge.

    The community blood drive is sponsored by the Hodgenville Woman’s Club. The blood drive will return April 8.

  • COLUMN: What does Black History Month mean?

    For some, February is just the second month of the year, a time to let your sweetie know how much you care, when you worry about the groundhog seeing his shadow and predicting six more weeks of winter, or when you get those taxes done if you are getting a big fat refund check.
