  • Hours after trash pick up, more had been thrown down

    Dear Editor,

    Last Saturday, April 1, Becky’s Team participated in the Trash for Cash as a fundraiser for Relay for Life. We cleaned up 10 miles of road littered with everything imaginable, but the sad part of that is 75 to 80% of that trash is recyclable.

    There were lots of plastic bottles and aluminum cans along with paper and Styrofoam too. We also found old tires, a mattress and box springs, an old TV and even a couch and loveseat.

  • LETTER: Disheartened by beer cans on roads

    Dear Editor,

    On April 1, I was part of a group from South Fork Baptist Church who picked up trash on about 10 miles of back roads in LaRue County, as a fundraiser for our mission trip to Africa.

    It is surprising how much trash 10 miles of country roads can collect. How many beer cans can be chunked out windows on these roads, along with juice boxes, soda cans, broken sunglass cases, tobacco cans, and myriad other items.

  • LETTER: Trash for cash brings lessons

    Dear editor,

    I am writing to you about our recent participation in the LaRue County Trash for Cash cleanup in the Oak Hill and Maxine communities. This was a great opportunity for our adults and young people to come together, be a part of beautifying areas of our county and raising funds to be used in an upcoming mission trip to New York.

  • LETTER: Poker Run for child abuse awareness coming to LaRue

    Dear Editor,

    April is Child Abuse awareness month. The Travelers Widows Sons are teaming with SpringHaven, Inc. to host a poker run to help bring awareness and raise proceeds for the children’s program at SpringHaven Domestic Violence shelter.

    Belinda Burd, SpringHaven’s child advocate reached out to the Travelers Widows Sons to ask if they could assist in helping raise awareness and proceeds for the children’s program at SpringHaven.

  • The internet is down! April Fools

    True story. Many years ago, I was lecturing on technology at a conference, and a man came up and asked me how he would know when he had reached the end of the Internet! I realized immediately there was not going to be any way to answer his question, at least in time allotted, so I simply said, “No problem, it will display a message for you that you have “Now, reached the end of the Internet.”

    He walked away seemingly satisfied with the answer. Sometimes I wonder if he is still looking for the message to pop up in his browser.

  • Chamber Unites!

    After a successful Winter Gala everyone wants to know what happens next? What’s the next big thing? We have had more than one person ask these questions.

    We are in full swing at the Chamber and we are attempting to visit our current members while also visiting potential members. If we haven’t visited you, don’t worry we will get by to see you very soon.

  • Make throwing trash out the window a thing of the past

    Dear Editor,

    Mt. Moriah Baptist Church took part in the local Trash for Cash as a fundraiser for the June Honduras Mission Trip. From ages 9-66, twenty of us gathered early this past Saturday morning ready to battle on the local roadways.

    Armed with gloves, trash bags, grabbers and orange vests, all generously provided as part of the program, we met to clear 10 miles of late night drive thru detritus, and crying in your beer bottle blues.

  • Roadside clean up a humbling experience
