  • LETTER: Sunrise Volunteers recruiting for activities in new nursing home

    Did you ever see a turtle on a fence post? Well, you know he didn’t get there by himself. He had help.

    Now Sunrise Manor Volunteers are on that fence post and we need help getting down. We will be moving into the new building soon and we need you to help us.

    Come join the volunteers. The residents are fun to be with and they need us to bring the outside world to them. The next time you step out into that world, remember, they can’t.

  • LETTER: Farmers market was a success

    Friday, Sept. 16 will be the last farmers market day for the season.

    Thank you to everyone who has come out to the market this year. You all have made it a huge success and we will see you spring 2012.

  • LETTER: Consider Gatewood in upcoming election

    Gatewood Galbraith.

    Regardless of the fact that he keeps placing a strong second in numerous polls and even first in a few of them, he seems limited to one sentence just mentioning his name at the end of campaign articles.

    They fear anyone that really does want to change things or wants to give the power back to the people such as Gatewood does.

    Any chance of breaking away from the nation splitting two-party system immediately gets swept aside for fear of shaking up the status quo.

  • LETTER: Chamber director thanks volunteers at State Fair booth

    The LaRue County Chamber of Commerce would like to thank everyone who contributed to our booth at the Kentucky State Fair “Pride of the Counties” exhibit.
    The booth was a great representation of LaRue County because of the many items that were loaned for use in the booth and because of many volunteers that donated their time to man the booth.
    These volunteers donated many hours to tell about LaRue County and everything we have to offer.

  • COLUMN: Grandparents are worthy of honor

    With grandparent’s day just around the corner, I think it’s appropriate to commend the works of grandparents in our county, state and nation.
    Since being declared a national holiday by former President Jimmy Carter in 1978, Americans have taken advantage of the Sunday after Labor Day, to celebrate the impact that grandparent’s have had on their lives.
    Grandparents, in my opinion, are an essential part in every person’s life, often times offering unbiased advice and a shoulder to lean on.

  • 911 changed America - and all of our paths

    This week we reflect on the 10th anniversary of events to be remembered in history and commemorated for generations. On this day, the 10th anniversary of 9/11, we are a permanently changed nation and are yet confronting the attack’s second and third order effects.

  • LETTER: Remember those lost on Sept. 11, 2001

    In a few days, our nation will give honor to those who lost their lives in New York City. I will have no problem to pause and lower my head in silence.

    Being brought up to do so at home, having the honor to serve and as an American, I have a sworn duty to do no less.

    And above all that was said, first and always, God comes first by his loving grace.

    Thank you, God, to be an American.
