Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: All graduates should participate

    Dear Editor,

    As a graduate of LaRue County Schools, the parent of two graduates and a parent by choice of another, a former member of the LaRue County Board of Education, and a lifelong supporter of our schools, I am sadly disappointed that two recent graduates were not allowed to walk with the Class of 2017 to receive their diplomas.

  • Letter to the editor - May 24, 2017

    Dear Editor,

    Throughout the month of May the Kentucky Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet traditionally celebrates the state’s vast tourism industry and releases the year’s economic data and impact figures.

  • Letter: Than you for support of Annual Tractor pull

    Dear Editor,

    I am writing to report the success of the second annual tractor pull, Pulling for Ronnie and Mike, that took place on April 8 at LaRue County fairgrounds. With the hard work and dedication from the pull promotors, as well as several volunteers, the pull was a great success!

  • Talk to me baby!

    I remember conversations decades ago discussing both touch and voice recognition technology in our computers with the likes of Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. Both had their dreams and both felt that typing was too cumbersome and too slow.

    Touch (and by association Gestures) is well ingrained in our technology today, but voice is just now coming to the forefront. The biggest issue for most of us is the multitude of voice integrated devices we have.

  • Trash for Cash offers eye opening experience

    Dear Editor,

    On April 25 and 29, the 2016-2017 Leadership LaRue class volunteered a few hours of our time to Trash for Cash, which is a government funded activity in which garbage is collected from county roadways and a donation is made to the organization of the volunteer’s choice in return. We worked to benefit the LaRue County Chamber of Commerce.

  • Buttermilk Basics

    Buttermilk is a great way to add flavor and nutrition to many dishes. It has a longer storage time than fresh milk, and is therefore a great ingredient to have in your refrigerator.

    Buttermilk was originally the fluid left behind after churning butter from milk. Today, you can find reduced-fat varieties and locally produced buttermilk that is thick and rich in flavor. Buttermilk retains the nutrients from the milk used to produce it and is a good source of calcium and protein.

  • How to delete duplicate photos

    For Christmas, my son-in-law gave my wife a MacBook Air laptop. I know, what a guy! Anyway, I got to set it up for her, which meant bringing all her files from Windows to Mac.

    When I say all, she had less than 100 data files, and more that 30,000 photos. Yup, you read the number right. The age of the digital camera in our phones has done nothing to teach us how to manage the massive number of pictures we take.

  • Concern about the negative impact of alcohol

    Dear Editor,

    In regards to the alcohol petition circulating in LaRue County, we would like to take the opportunity to express our concerns about the negative impact it would have, should it be allowed by a vote. We are proud to live in a dry city/county and we hope and pray that it will remain that way.
