  • LETTER: Heartbreaking litter on roadways

    Dear editor,

    Just a few days ago, I spent the morning, along with nine other church family members, picking up trash from a local road that holds sentimental value for me. I have traveled it numerous times over the years to church and grew to love its beauty.

    This year, it is my intention to focus on positive influences in our community. There is so much negativity present, that people tend to lose sight of the good. So, I want to attempt to bring your focus back to the good things that are going on around us. I want to start out with something we are all closely acquainted with, school.

  • Where my story ended

    When I met John I was working at Howie’s in New Haven. I was 17 years old recently graduated from high school and had my mind set on working as much as I could while I figured out exactly what I was going to do with my life.

  • You're never alone

    I traveled to Rockcastle County last Wednesday and Thursday to be a pallbearer in the funeral of my great-uncle, Paul Ponder.

    I understand that a lot of people think that the average person is not close to a great-uncle, but that is not the case at all in my family as we are all close and we all get together often throughout the year.

    A lot of people shared their thoughts of what they remembered about my Uncle Paul. I have all kinds of stories too, but there was one particular story that immediately came to my mind.

  • LETTER: New billboards seem to take away community's value

    Dear Editor,

    It saddens me immensely to see billboards being erected on Lincoln Parkway.

    Our area is beautiful with the gently rolling farmland and these billboards are a distraction. I’m sure the County Planning and Zoning office had to approve the construction of these billboards. What were they thinking?

    I would much rather see a road sign saying Hodgenville, home of Ivy Brown, Miss Kentucky Basketball and Erin Boley, Miss Kentucky Basketball and Gatorade Basketball player of the year.
