  • LETTER: Report child abuse

    Summer is nearing an end and children all across Kentucky have or soon will be headed back to school. While many students may groan at the thought of homework, tests, book reports and science projects, most are also excited to see old friends and to get a fresh start on a new year.

  • LETTER: Message from Passport CEO

    It is a new day at Passport Health Plan. As CEO now for 48 days, and as Interim CEO for 260 days, I can assure you, things have changed. It has been a tough nine months for our associates, advocates, providers and members who make up the Passport family. As with any family experiencing a crisis however, we have pulled together to make things better. Please give me this opportunity to bring you up to date.

  • LETTER: Pageant winners should be from LaRue

    Amen to the ones who have already said it, but it needs to be said again. The LaRue County Fair pageants should be for LaRue County residents only, especially if the winners will be representing LaRue County at the State Fair.

    It does not honor our county at all if the winners are not from here.

  • COLUMN: You know you grew up in LaRue County when ...

    I’m not a big fan of Facebook, but I do enjoy playing “Gardens of Time” and looking at photos of my grandchildren and that seems to be the fastest way of doing that.
    Last week, though, I noticed a new group called “You’re probably from LaRue County if ...” I had to check it out.
    Actually, it says “Larue” which is just wrong, but that’s beside the point.
    There’s another one “You know you grew up in LaRue County, KY, if …”

  • COLUMN: I'll retire some day ... really, I will

    Forty years, four months and one day – the countdown is on. That’s the day I’m eligible for retirement.
    I have plans of sitting on a beach somewhere (preferably in Gulf Shores, Ala.) and soaking up the warm rays of sunshine – just as I did a few years back.
     I can’t wait to read a book without interruption, nap whenever I please, take a boat out for some deep-sea fishing and do all the things that I want to do, when I want to do it.

  • COLUMN: Facebook, tractor pull writer back home

    If you are on Facebook, you might have seen the page “If you grew up in ...” that has become a big talking point around town. I grew up in the western part of the state, so over the past week or so, I’ve found myself glued to the “If you grew up in Crittenden County” page where many have been reliving days gone by.
