  • COLUMN: Celebrate the power of newspapers

    Celebrate the Power of Newspapers is this year’s theme celebrating Newspaper in Education week, March 7-11.
    No matter how students access newspapers – on the Web, through an app, in an electronic edition or in print, they learn about an ever widening range of subjects. Newspapers not only bring academic subjects to life, but also deepen learning by grounding in real-world experiences. The power of newspapers lies in their ability to help students develop into literate, well-rounded, successful citizens.

  • Bringing Wi-Fi: Would the people of Hodgenville benefit?

    Today it seems that everyone is asking the question, “Could bringing Wi-Fi to the square of Hodgenville benefit the city?”
    In my opinion, it would. My name is Anne McCubbin and I’m an 8th grader who is part of the LaRue County Middle School Community Problem Solving Team. We’ve decided that bringing Wi-Fi to the square would benefit Hodgenville in two ways: tourism and giving our local community members more reasons to frequent the downtown area.

  • COLUMN: 'Miss Carrie' Arnette is the heart of The Life Connection

    In celebrating Black History Month, attention is given to a Hodgenville resident who has contributed to Hodgenville and LaRue County. Her name is Carrie Arnette.
    Carrie has worked at The Life Connection for more than 18 years. This is a residential facility for adolescents with cognitive disabilities. I consider her the mother of Life Connection, because she was there when it was first established. I will share why I selected this person for this title.

  • COLUMN: Teens have brought the 'good kind' of attention to LaRue

    LaRue County has produced a splendid crop of young people. It’s difficult to keep up with all their accomplishments.
    Here are a few of the most recent:
    Bright-eyed, sweet-toned Kenzi Lewis has accomplished at age 15 what many people only dream of  – performing on a Hollywood stage on American Idol. She lasted a couple of weeks on the TV show and we were sorry to see her leave.  I have a feeling she’ll be back on that stage in the future.

  • OPINION: Kentucky open primaries may not be the best solution

    THE KENTUCKY STANDARD EDITORIAL BOARD

    Senate Bill 41, sponsored by Sen. Jimmy Higdon, R-Lebanon, has passed the Senate and has been sent to the House for approval.

    If passed the bill would allow those registered as Independent to vote in party primaries traditionally held in May.

  • COLUMN: Several agencies appreciate gift of donated textbooks

    Each semester college students purchase textbooks to accompany their upcoming classes. The books are often mandatory and carry a hefty price tag.
    Some students will use these books, others will not, but either way they’re stuck to pay the price. The only incentive of the purchase is that at the end of the semester most college bookstores have a “book buyback.” Although buy back pricing is severely lower than original purchase price, it gives students a little money in their pocket … sometimes.
