  • RELAY FOR LIFE: Kathy Ross reflects on 'C' word survivors

  • LETTER: Beware of puppy mills

    Beware of puppy mills
    I’m trying to get the word out about “puppy mills” in the community. Puppy mills house dogs in overcrowded and often unsanitary conditions without adequate health care, food, water, or human company.

  • COLUMN: May is Foster Care Awareness Month

    May is National Foster Care Month, a time to shine the light on the foster care experience. Let’s start with some facts and figures:
    • More than 6,800 Kentucky children and youth are in out-of-home care, with 75 to 80 percent of those in foster care. Most are placed in temporary foster care due to parental neglect or abuse.
    • The average age of a child in care: 10.7 years.
    • More than 73 percent of the children/youth in care are white; 19.3 percent are black and 4.3 percent are Hispanic.

  • COLUMN: Death of bin Laden is another 'Film Unfinished'

    Most everyone can remember what they were doing on Sept. 11, 2001.
    It was Tuesday and at The LaRue County Herald News, we were busy putting together that week’s edition. We don’t have a TV in the office and radio reception is poor so we were oblivious to the reports of terrorist attacks to the north.
    Mid-morning we received a phone call from a lady who insisted that a plane had just hit the Twin Towers and “both Pentagons.”

  • LETTER: Thanks for helping show

    Many of you know us as Elvis and Meat Loaf and for almost a decade now you have packed the house for our shows in Hardin County. Please allow us to thank each of you who supported the recent show Legends of Country Music at Pritchard Community Center, featuring the Perkins Brothers and Friends. Your support helped Ruth Ann Baker’s feast on the word food ministry program. Your support gave local entertainers a sold out, standing room only crowd.

  • LETTERS: Military gives boost to pride

    Every morning, weather permitting, I raise my flag “Old Glory” and in the evening take it down (no light on flag).
    With the announcement of death of Osama bin Laden by our blessed military, I ran the flag up real fast, so proud of our nation.
    Way to go Navy, good job. I’m a Army retiree and Army brat. Bless you Navy Seals, go U.S.A. I am so proud to be an American veteran.

  • LETTER: Obey the limit on boulevard

    To all reading, please obey the speed limit on Lincoln Boulevard, especially by the stretch by Rock n Rogers to the square. My daughter was rear-ended as she entered into our driveway, a few weeks ago. The impact was so great; it pushed the van into the front porch of our neighbor.
    Speed limits are posted for a reason and each of us need to be attentive for the safety of us all. Too often, I cringe as I turn into our driveway as those behind me follow too closely and too fast that many times, I continue to go around the block to avoid an accident.
