Today's Opinions

  • Gleanings and leanings

    By Bobbi Lanham

    When I drive down the road, I am always looking over the fields and roadsides for gleanings. I find a lot of produce, herbs and possibilities that way. I dug asparagus out of my cousin’s fencerow. I collected popcorn out of a field after the combine went through.

  • Committed to community

    Words cannot express how excited I am to be the editor of the LaRue County Herald News.

    I was born and raised in Rockcastle County and had lived there my entire life. I worked as the news editor of the county newspaper, the Mount Vernon Signal, for more than three years.

    As many of you know from your own experiences, it can be scary and difficult to leave your hometown for a different job, to go to college, etc. However, this was not the case for me when I left Rockcastle County to become the editor of the LaRue County Herald.

  • Spencer joins as correspondent

He was an adjunct associate professor at the University of West Florida for more than a decade and retired as a principal of a regional Pensacola, Fla., accounting firm in 1995.

    He has spent the past 20 years traveling internationally and lecturing on technology in business while authoring more than a dozen books on accounting software, risk management and best technology practices.

  • Passwords are good for you

    By Dr. Bob Spencer

    You hate creating passwords, you hate remembering passwords, you just hate passwords! Let’s face it, you are not alone. There are many things in this world that I dislike too, but I have to do them anyway, because they are good for me. Passwords are good for you!

  • Where did the time go?

    It’s that time of year when we get to watch cash strapped, teary eyed, last minute, emotional moms and dads of this year’s senior class, come in to the office to put that graduation ad in, or get a copy of the paper for somebody that lives out of town, or for the random, “I’m not sure where my paper went,” as we watch everyone trying to hang on to any memory of these big moments in their child’s life.

  • LETTER: Running with Project Graduation

      Running with Project Graduation

  • LETTER: From the editor

    Thank you
    Thank you to the many people who have stopped by the office to offer encouragement and kind words over the years – and most recently as I leave my job at The LaRue County Herald News.
    Thank you also for the flowers, cards, gifts and phone calls.
    Friday’s reception was lovely and I appreciate my co-workers for putting it together.
    A special thanks to Colonel Perkins AKA Meat Loaf for sharing his vocal skills at the reception. Hot patootie, indeed.

    Editor

  • COLUMN: It's a duck thing, you wouldn't understand

    Over the years I’ve written more stories than I can count about tragedies, court cases, local government, closings, openings and even a few features. Some are forgettable – in fact, I’ve forgotten them myself. But the story – or more accurately, a column – that readers have asked about more than all the others combined was one of the first I penned.
