    Propes is a community treasure
    I met Donnie Propes in 1986, while his wife Janet served as the county treasurer. It was easy to tell that they were both God fearing people who loved their community and were willing to do anything for their friends and family.
    Janet was taken far too early in life from all of us, as we lost a wonderful lady in our community. But Donnie picked up the pieces and carried on as Janet and God would want him to.

  • Just Ask

    John Wright, community relations specialist for Hardin County Schools, said,” yes, all Hardin County Schools students have an opportunity to eat a free breakfast. Do they all do it?  No.”

    “It is not through a grant (however). It is something that our district provides all year long.”

    The program started last year.

    Some students qualify for free or reduced price breakfast and lunch through the state.

    The LaRue County High School Baseball Team would like to express their appreciation and thanks to the area businesses and individuals who made donations toward the costs of the recent trip to Florida for the Fort Walton Beach Bash.  

    Your support and generosity is appreciated.

  • Wouldn’t you druther go to Druther’s Restaurant?

    Those of us who grew up in the South in the ’70s fondly remember such bygone icons of Americana as the Z/28 Camaro, the original cast of “Saturday Night Live” and Druther’s.

    The last Druther’s Restaurant in America is in Campbellsville. The chain existed from 1963 until 1981.

    There used to be one in Hodgenville.

    If you’re 50-something, you may recall the jingle: “I’d druther go to Druther’s Restaurant.”

  • Greensburg’s mud brick house is one of a kind

     My husband Bud and I went on the Historic Home Tour in Greensburg last weekend.

  • Panther pride can't compare to LaRue's accomplishments

     As a Panther, having graduated from Elizabethtown High School only six years ago, I never thought I would appreciate or boast about a rival school system more than the one I grew up in. However, to simply ignore the achievements of LaRue County schools would be ludicrous. 

  • Washington's focus

    Dear Friends,

     

  • Hodgenville courtesy appreciated

    On April 15, in the strip mall in Hodgenville, I fell flat face forward at a store.

    I had a heartwarming experience from the local folks. I was very upset with myself and stated so. The folks calmed me and brought a blanket for me and something to cushion my head. They called the ambulance and there was even a retired nurse there.

    This all brought back memories of Hodgenville of the 1930’s and ’40’s.

    I want to thank those folks and I am truly humbled by their kindness which will not soon be forgotten.
