  • Conway failed citizens by not appealing ruling

     In November 2004, Kentuckians overwhelmingly passed an amendment to Kentucky’s constitution that said marriage shall be between one man and one woman. A legal status identical or substantially similar to that of marriage for unmarried individuals shall not be valid or recognized, the constitution states.

    During that year, 13 states passed similar amendments. Many of these amendments were in large part because activist judges, mainly in the Northeast, were overriding the people’s will and allowing gay marriage in those states.

  • LETTER: Contact legislators about Bluegrass Pipeline

    LETTER: Contact legislators about Bluegrass Pipeline

    I am very concerned about the proposed Bluegrass Pipeline that would transport natural gas liquids through Kentucky. NGLs are not the same as natural gas: they are highly flammable, hazardous liquids remaining after natural gas is extracted from the ground and include benzene, which causes cancer.

  • Honoring Elizabeth Bell: Worthy is She

    Worthy is She
    A poem written by Rev. Aaron L. Moss for Elizabeth Thurman Bell, Black History LaRue County Citizen of the Year.

    She is the worthy one, so wonderful, so gentle and free yet so strong that everyone who models her can do no wrong.
    She is a dependable source of comfort to know. A teacher, encourager but most of all, she is a God sent Mother who wants everyone to grow.
    She brings joy with purpose in mind and is living proof that love is kind.
    She covers everyone with her loving wings and lifts her soft voice to sing.

  • Just Ask: What's up with the traffic light?

    I was in the left turning lane at the intersection by Hardee’s recently. I sat there for nine minutes and watched other lights keep changing – but mine never did. I finally ran the red light after I made sure no one was coming. That is not the first time I have had to sit at that red light for what seemed like forever.
    I even put my car in reverse to move back a little, thinking I wasn’t in the right place to trigger the light to change – but it didn’t make a difference.
    What is the deal?

  • Hear the train, it's going to rain

    On Saturday, my husband Bud visited a friend who lives in the vicinity of Nolin Baptist Church.
    He said he could hear the train running at Glendale several miles away – something that occurs only as bad weather is approaching. The phenomenon is due to the cold air being a good sound conductor.
    Anyway, he said it’s a reliable method of predicting bad weather – for that area of the county at least.
    I had my own weather predictor Saturday. It was Old Uncle Arthur – and he is never wrong.

  • LETTER: Say 'No' to the pipeline

     No to the pipeline

    As distraught landowners along the proposed route for the Bluegrass hazardous liquids Pipeline, we wish to express our dismay upon finding stakes on our property on Sunday, Feb. 16.  On two occasions, we have adamantly told the pipeline reps that we said “No” to the pipeline and did not want them on our property.

     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.
