  • COLUMN: State battles prescription drug abuse

     On Sept. 22, I received an email from a grieving mother in Oldham County who had lost a child to a prescription drug overdose. Her daughter died at a friend’s house after mixing the drug Opana with other substances. She was just 16 years old. 

    I have received many of these letters and grieved with far too many parents devastated by the scourge of prescription drug abuse. I vowed to each one of these families that I would do everything I could to stop the spread of this epidemic.

  • LETTER: Thank you, utility workers

     I want to say a big thank you to all the LG&E utility workers for their hard work and long hours getting our gas back on in Magnolia during the outage.

    I appreciate all our utility workers. They do a great job.

  • LETTER: Community has been caring

       For as long as I can remember, my family has been coming to Buffalo every year to my aunt and uncle's house, Rob and Nina Hutchins, for Thanksgiving. In fact, one of our annual traditions was inevitably getting lost, no matter which route we took, on the drive there from Bowling Green.

    I never once thought that one day I would call Buffalo my home. God, as he often does, had other plans.

  • LETTER: Arts grant provided great entertainment

     Arts Council grant provided great entertainment

    I enjoyed your review/editorial/column on the production of "Hairspray" held here. And I agree that the theatre-type venues we have available to us here (the high school theater, the Civic Center and others) could be used more.

  • COLUMN: The death of Capt. Waskow

     AT THE FRONT LINES IN ITALY, Jan 10 (1944) (by Wireless) – In this war I have known a lot of officers who were loved and respected by the soldiers under them. But never have I crossed the trail of any man as beloved as Capt. Henry T. Waskow of Belton, Tex.

    Capt. Waskow was a company commander in the 36th Division. He had been in this company since long before he left the States. He was very young, only is his middle twenties, but he carried in him a sincerity and gentleness that made people want to be guided by him.

  • COLUMN: LaRue County needs more 'Hairspray'

     If memory serves me correctly, Pine Knob Theater brought the musical “Daddy Took the T-Bird Away” to the LaRue County High School auditorium in 1994 or 1995.
