Today's Opinions

  • There are good people on drugs

    I enjoyed listening to Andy Beshear speak at the local rotary club meeting last Thursday. Beshear is running for attorney general and stopped by Hodgenville on the campaign trail.

    Beshear’s speech was centered around three main issues that he said Kentuckians were struggling with the most. Those issues were the child abuse epidemic, drug epidemic and the increasing amount of scams across the state.

    While all three are major issues that need to be addressed, the issue that struck home with me the most was the drug epidemic.

  • Celebrate Kentucky’s ties to Independence Day

    By State Representative Terry Mills

    As we ready to celebrate the Fourth of July on Saturday, it’s worth remembering the words President Kennedy spoke at Philadelphia’s Independence Hall a little more than five decades ago.

  • Float my boat
  • Pows and wows!

     I don’t know why God does what he does. But we are always comforted by the adage that there is a reason for everything or the saying that God can make lemonade out of lemons. We Christians ask our questions and then wait for His answer. That works for us. We pause, and we learn. I get that.

  • Life lessons learned from Lincoln

    I have been studying about Abraham Lincoln more in depth since I started working at the LaRue County Herald News.

    I think we can all agree that Lincoln was a successful man who made a positive impact on millions of lives. As president, Lincoln abolished slavery and led our country through the Civil War, which was one of the most trying times in our nation’s history.

  • Committe thanks those who supported Relay

    On behalf of the LaRue County Relay for Life Leadership Committee, we wish to publicly thank the many, many LaRue residents who helped make Relay 2015 a huge success. Though the weather forced us to close early, the committee is convinced that hosting the event on the square was a great decision and we look forward to continuing future Relays there. This year was a learning experience and we are excited about some additional changes for 2016.

  • Thanks to coaches, donors to sports camp

    We would like to thank the coaches and contributors who helped so much with the free Another Level Basketball Camp held June 16-18.
