  • LETTER: Concern over alcohol sales

    Dear Editor,

    I agree with Brother Troutman on as I call it, the whiskey deal; that’s what it was when I was young. I went to several bootleggers and got it for my dad with a note that he would pay when he got paid from work.

  • LETTER: Too much concern over revenue not enough about people

    Dear Editor,

    I’ve had great pride in being able to tell people that I am from Hodgenville and LaRue County, a dry city in a dry county. I, along with others, was disheartened to see the issue of alcohol sales being brought up for consideration in our town.

  • LETTER: Views on alcohol from a Christian perspective

    Dear Editor,

    I would like to respond both as a Christian and a pastor to the recent articles in the newspaper regarding the petitions now being circulated in our community to have a vote regarding the sale of alcohol. Already I have read some statements referring to Scriptures that, while they were made with sincerity, are completely wrong and inaccurate.

  • Renaissance Recycling is about to “Flip its Lids!”

    Recently, a church group let me know that they were saving lids to recycle and they would go to a new bench or table for their church. This program is sponsored by Green Tree Plastics out of Evansville, Indiana.

    We have been saving for them and others for some time and we are overrun. I have misplaced the phone number for the group sponsor that had requested help in the summer, and hope that someone reading this will call me with that information, PLEASE!

  • Letter to the editor - Thank you Sunrise Volunteers

  • Easy ways to increase your savings

    This is America Saves Week. Most of us understand that saving regularly is one of the simplest ways to reach our financial goals, but we don’t all take advantage of easy ways to automate our savings.

  • Managing social networking in your business

    Social networking apps for communicating, such as Podcasting tools, Snapchat, Facebook and Twitter, has changed our ability to rapidly access and disseminate information. This makes it more important than ever to be sensitive to our responsibilities to guard our business and our customers’ information.

  • Best way to save automatically

    How are you doing with your savings habits? Do you automatically transfer money to a savings account each month? Setting up automatic savings is the easiest and most effective way to save – it puts your extra cash out of sight and out of mind. There are several ways to automate.

    1. Use direct deposit at work to split your paycheck into different accounts: checking, emergency fund, retirement, investment, or other goals. Automating retirement savings is a great way to assure that you receive any matches or employer contributions, too.
