Today's Opinions

  • Should middle schoolers "play up?"

     I am writing to address a situation at LaRue County Schools. My daughter, who will be a freshman this year recently tried out for the LaRue County High School  Cheerleading Squad. The results were posted Friday night and my daughter did not make the squad – she was chosen as an alternate. I am OK with this, but I have since found out that a seventh-grader made the LCHS Cheerleading Squad. 

  • Intern: Ready to write

    Hello, my name is Felicia Gray and I am the new summer intern at The LaRue County Herald News. My internship is through the Kentucky Press Association.

    Many of you probably know me as Jill and Tim Gray’s daughter. If you know my mom, you probably already know that I attend Campbellsville University — if not because she mentions it nearly every time she says my name, then because she is very proud of her “Campbellsville Mom” T-shirt.

  • Graduates continue to make history

     Last Thursday, the annual LaRue County High School senior group photo at Lincoln Farm was taken.

    I always enjoy taking that photo – mostly because someone else is in charge of lining up the kids. 

    I had a few minutes to reminisce that morning. The kids were running later than usual so I walked around the plaza in front of the Memorial Building – the first memorial constructed to honor the 16th President.

  • Letter: We ask your forgiveness

     

    We ask your forgiveness

  • Letter: Accusations against mayor, city-clerk, are cruel

     

    As a mother-in-law and friend I have sat back and listened to the accusations and rumors that have been said against my son-in-law Terry Cruse and my friend MaDonna Hornback and quite honestly it hurts me deeply at how cruel some people can be.

  • Frankfort Focus: Remember those who served this holiday

     Memorial Day may be the unofficial kick-off to summer, but as we ready for the upcoming holiday weekend, it is vital that we never forget it is much more than that. It is also a time when we as a nation pause to mourn and to reflect upon those men and women who paid the ultimate price defending our freedom.

    The holiday is nearing its 150th anniversary, and given that it came about in the wake of the Civil War, it seems appropriate that there is still some debate between the North and South about its exact origin.

  • Gov. Beshear fires back at Sun

    I’m accustomed now to critics’ misleading statements about the Affordable Care Act, but a recent editorial in this newspaper was so breathtakingly disingenuous that it demands a factual response. That a newspaper of this size would trot out such unsubstantiated tripe disguised as analysis is a disservice to its readers.
