Today's Opinions

  • Blood drive thanks

    Thank you to the 29 individuals who volunteered to donate blood Tuesday at Hodgenville Woman’s Club. A double thanks to those who donated using the “double red” procedure. We received 24 good units of blood.

    Thanks to Becky Loyall and Rob Brown for working at the drive.

    The community blood drive will return Dec. 14.

  • Christian higher education is a form of mission work

    Each October, the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities and its member and affiliate institutions mark Christian Higher Education Month.

    House Resolution 300 in June 2003 declared the special month, which celebrates the role of Christ-centered colleges in America’s history and in students’ lives.

    Campbellsville University, located in south central Kentucky, is one of those colleges.

  • Information sought about Bloyds' token

    Looking for token clues

    A friend was searching through his pocket change for a soda and noticed a token from H.M. Bloyds Café, Hodgenville, in the mix. Him, knowing I am a life long resident of Hodgenville, gave it to me. I asked my mother, who will celebrate her 87th birthday this year, about it and she didn't have any recollection of the business.

  • TIMEee^FORee^TREES: Main Street kicks off event

         Main Street’s Annual Festival of Trees will take entries for a few more days.

         This is a fun way for an organization, a business, a church or individual to make money for a non-profit cause. We’ll take trees of almost any size including table trees, plus wreaths, centerpieces, banners and more.     

         We don’t guarantee results, but last year every single item was sold in the silent auction.

  • Bikers visit local soldier's grave at Custer's Last Stand

    In July, Russell Perkins and his nephew, Larry Skaggs, toured the northwest on motorcycles. The Hodgenville men spent about three weeks riding through Wyoming, Montana, Washington and Oregon to the Redwood forests in California.

    They rode more than 4,300 miles and ended the tour at the Sturgis, S.D. motorcycle rally.

    During a stop at the Little Big Horn Battlefield, they searched for and found the gravesite of a young man who died on the battlefield – also known as Custer’s Last Stand - in 1876.

  • Court case to challenge Kentucky's transparency laws

    There’s a difference between the public’s right to know and what the public “ought to know.”

    It’s a discussion my husband Bud and I have had several times.

    Kentucky’s open meetings and open records laws are near the top of the heap in comparison to other states. The Attorney General’s office sides with the taxpayer nearly every time when a question arises about access to records.

    But there are a few loopholes that could be filled.

  • Supports Cruse and family

    Terry Cruse is the current mayor of Hodgenville and is running for another term. He has tried to be responsible, as mayor, for seeing to many changes within the city – changes for the better and beautification.

    Of course, there are always some people who criticize everything, when things don’t go exactly like they want. There are people who are never satisfied with anything and always complain about something or someone.
