Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: Vote 'yes' on hunting amendment

     I am writing this letter to inform my fellow Kentucky hunters and fishermen of the important decision we all have on Nov. 6. As you may already know, there is a question on this year’s ballot concerning our fundamental hunting rights and an amendment to the Kentucky Constitution.

  • LETTER: Good time had by all

     The Hodgenville Goodtime Cruisers would like to thank Mayor Terry Cruse and the City of Hodgenville for allowing us to use the downtown area to host our monthly cruise-in.

    We also wish to thank our sponsors and local businesses who supported us and helped make 2012 a success. Thanks to everyone for a great year and we look forward to a bigger and better 2013.

    See you in April.

    Terry Taylor

    President, Goodtime Cruisers 

  • Lincoln Days: New faces, events a success

     I apologize for the week’s delay in passing out kudos to the 37th annual Lincoln Days Celebration. My thoughts were timely but the writing was slow.

    As always – the festival was a success.

    I think the crowd was down – but the atmosphere was wonderful. Everyone seemed to be having a good time and participation was up in several events.

  • LETTER: Antique tractor and gas engine show a success

     We want to thank everyone for turning out for this year’s Lincoln Days Antique Tractor and Gas Engine Show. We hope everyone enjoyed themselves.

    This event would not be possible without the continued support of our sponsors: McDowell Farm Machinery, Lincoln National Bank, Southern States, Price Smith and Kentucky Farm Bureau, Nall’s Specialized Hauling, LaRue County Pork Producers and LaRue County Beef Association.

  • LETTER: Blood drive was successful

     Thank you to the 25 individuals who volunteered to donate blood on Oct. 9 at the Hodgenville Woman’s Club.

    One individual gave using the “double red” procedure. We received 25 good units of blood and met our goal.

    Thanks to Rob Brown, Becky Loyall and Linda Stearman for assisting at the drive and The Sweet Shoppe for a tray of candy.

    Many thanks for your support of the community blood drive which is sponsored by the Hodgenville Woman’s Club.

    The next blood drive is Dec. 11.

  • LETTER: Thank you from Springhaven

     Nationally, one in four women and about one in seven men will experience serious effects of domestic violence in their lifetime. Sadly, there are also more than three million children who witness and are affected by domestic violence in their home each year.  

  • COLUMN: Long live Daryl Dixon as The Walking Dead returns

     Must-see TV at the Ireland home includes two shows that have little in common.

  • LETTER: Washington prescribes Wall Street rules for Main Street

     It’s a long way from Wall Street, but communities such as LaRue County are on track to face the kinds of regulations imposed on the monumental financial institutions in New York. Regulations due out in a matter of weeks would unnecessarily subject Main Street community banks to the same complex capital requirements as Wall Street megabanks. If you don’t think that’s going to make a tangible difference that will hurt LaRue County, think again.
