Today's Opinions

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Connected and disconnected

    As a part of Leadership LaRue, I got to go visit the state capitol in Frankfort last Wednesday and Thursday.

    We all really enjoyed it and I think we all had a great time. Our newly elected Representative Brandon Reed and Senator Steve Meredith spent time with us. We got to see both the house and Senate in session as well as hear a case being brought before the state Supreme Court. We toured parts of the governor’s office and mansion. Our time was jam-packed but we got to see a lot about how our state government operates.

  • Valentines Day: From a priest defending marriage to gifts and flowers

    By Steven Curtsinger

    As I started to think about Valentine’s Day, and what it means for Americans, and really the whole world, I wanted to know where it all started. Why do we celebrate Valentine’s Day? Who brought it about? What has kept it going for so long? I started looking into the history of St. Valentine, the pioneer of Valentine’s Day.

  • A tired school, tired parents

    Recently the character and involvement of New Haven School parents came under question when a Nelson County School board member made some comments during a February working session.

  • The coming together of prayers

    I had the privilege of writing about an amazing and heartfelt article in The LaRue County Herald News this week.

    The article was about three LaRue County people who have all worked and been connected with different outreach programs over the past several years. Now all three have came together to provide handicap equipment and be an inspiration for disabled people in Kenya. I encourage everyone to read the article and pray for them all.

  • What we're not talking about

    This editorial is based on the views of the LaRue County Herald News editorial board.

    The board consist of Allison Shepherd, Publisher; Doug Ponder, Editor; and Vanessa Hurst, Reporter.

    With the recent developments in a case that involved students of our local high school and said Principal at the time, Stephen Kyle Goodlett, we are stopping to take a deeper look at the underlying problem occurring right here in our own community.
