  • LETTER: Concern over alcohol sales

    Dear Editor,

    I agree with Brother Troutman on as I call it, the whiskey deal; that’s what it was when I was young. I went to several bootleggers and got it for my dad with a note that he would pay when he got paid from work.

  • LETTER: Too much concern over revenue not enough about people

    Dear Editor,

    I’ve had great pride in being able to tell people that I am from Hodgenville and LaRue County, a dry city in a dry county. I, along with others, was disheartened to see the issue of alcohol sales being brought up for consideration in our town.

  • LETTER: Views on alcohol from a Christian perspective

    Dear Editor,

    I would like to respond both as a Christian and a pastor to the recent articles in the newspaper regarding the petitions now being circulated in our community to have a vote regarding the sale of alcohol. Already I have read some statements referring to Scriptures that, while they were made with sincerity, are completely wrong and inaccurate.

  • Renaissance Recycling is about to “Flip its Lids!”

    Recently, a church group let me know that they were saving lids to recycle and they would go to a new bench or table for their church. This program is sponsored by Green Tree Plastics out of Evansville, Indiana.

    We have been saving for them and others for some time and we are overrun. I have misplaced the phone number for the group sponsor that had requested help in the summer, and hope that someone reading this will call me with that information, PLEASE!

  • Legislative update from Rep. Reed

    We are now more than half way through the 2017 Regular Session and work continues for the people of Kentucky. This week, the House passed measures to ensure student athlete safety, help our state’s veterans, and support our first responders.

  • Legislative update from Senator Meredith

    Visits from advocacy groups, a ceremonial bill signing, and rallies in the Capitol Rotunda, along with the bipartisan passage of bills, marked a busy Week Four of the 2017 Legislative Session.

    We were excited to welcome the children of Kentucky National Guard members from across the state for the First Annual Kentucky Military Kids Day. It was an honor to host these families who have sacrificed so much to serve our state and our country.

  • Letter to the editor - Thank you Sunrise Volunteers

    Dear Editor,

    Sunrise Volunteers is a local organization that enriches the lives of the Sunrise Manor Nursing Home residents. It utilizes volunteers who provide aid, comfort, and joy to the residents and their families. Lillian Talley has been on both the “giving” and the “receiving” ends of the loving care provided by the Sunrise Volunteers.

  • A Senior’s Advice

    Over the past four years, I have had the privilege of being a student at LaRue County High School, but it wasn’t always easy.

    I have learned that even in the midst of privileges and emotional highs, there are always nuisances and emotional lows. My four years of high school have proven this theory time and time again. You must be prepared and very composed in order to endure the hardship and responsibility that comes along with being a successful student.
