Today's Opinions

  • Public Pensions Report Released; Interim Committees Continue to Meet

    The independent consulting group, PFM, commissioned by the state to examine our pension problems, released their long-awaited report on Monday, August 28. In the midst of much news reporting and information being pushed, it is important to note that the report only lists PFM’s proposals, and any legislative action will not mirror the full recommendations.

  • The Pension Crisis

    Bringing about a flurry of facts and a storm of misconceptions, Kentucky’s pension crisis has become one of the most dominating news stories in recent months. One thing is for certain: if our state pensions are not addressed in the very near future, we will face huge cuts in state funding. Education, Medicaid, and other government services would likely be affected—a risk our state is not in a position to take.

  • Chamber Unites!

    It is with much gratitude that I write this month’s article. Thank you to each of you for volunteering at the LaRue County booth during the Kentucky State Fair. It takes numerous individuals to plan, decorate and man this booth for ten days during the fair. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!

    We appreciate Fort Knox Federal Credit Union, Hornback Construction, LaRue County Attorney-Kyle Williamson, LaRue County Magistrate-Larry Howell and State Representative-Brandon Reed for sponsoring the Lincoln look-a-like for the Kentucky State Fair.

    LOCAL HERO

    Dear Editor,

  • What Happens at the State Fair

    As you probably can guess, I’m a huge fan of the Kentucky State Fair, and any fair as far as that is concerned. For years, my husband and I, along with a multitude of family and friends, have shared so many wonderful times together attending concerts, looking through exhibits and watching our granddaughters show their pigs.

  • LETTER: Informing community about tax rate info

    Dear editor,

    As a parent and alumna, I am honored to serve as a member of the LaRue County Schools Board of Education. I couldn’t be prouder of all our students and staff are accomplishing and that our district is the eighth highest achieving in Kentucky.

    Your local schools want to continue and build upon this success, ensuring every LCS student has the educational opportunities they need to reach their full potential. To do that, it is imperative we begin sincere planning for the future, including our financial needs.

  • Agstravaganza thank you

    Dear editor,

    On behalf of the Board of Directors of LaRue County Farm Bureau we would like to thank the community for the amazing support shown for our AgStravaganza Faith-Family-Farm-Food Dinner held on the square in downtown Hodgenville, August 12, 2017.

    This was the second year for the dinner and it was a huge success. That was proven by watching 375 people mix and mingle while enjoying appetizers and dinner on a perfect August evening on our town square.
