  • LETTER: Hawks rule the holidays

    Hawks rule the holidays
    All three LaRue County High School winter sports programs won a holiday tourney within a one-week period.
    The Lady Hawks are KME Christmas Tourney champs. The Hawks won the National Guard Holiday Classic. And the Hawk wrestlers won the Fayette County, Ga. Tournament (38 teams).
    I feel confident in saying that very few schools across the state and country have accomplished that. I’m very proud of each program.
    David Dawson
    LCHS Athletic Director

  • COLUMN: If you don't want it in ink, don't do it

    Last week my husband and I went to dinner. A simple, pleasant dinner, until I heard “it.”
    “It” was the remark that the paper, this paper, had printed false information about a particular person. I didn’t catch the person’s name they were referring to but I would have liked to know. The few key words I did catch were “in jail, meth and wrongly accused.”

  • LETTER: Baby Jesus grew up

    A family took their children to the park one Christmas. As they were looking at all the pretty lights on the trees they come upon the nativity scene. The mother says, "Look everybody, there's the manger with the baby Jesus." As she turned to look at her children she noticed her daughter was looking out of the other side of the window.

    The mother asks, "Honey what's wrong? Don't you want to see the baby Jesus?"

  • Let 'be nice' be your motto for 2011

    Often times, New Year’s resolutions consist of weight loss, money management and various other personal goals.

    People often fail to acknowledge resolutions that are fairly easy to implement. For example, in today’s society I see a lack of respect for mankind. Respect is an easy thing to give and most people were taught at an early age to “treat people how you would want to be treated.”

    Instead I see violence, slander, theft and turmoil that seem to overpower the kindness that some people extend to others.

  • Make 'giving back' part of your new year routine

  • Searching for family of Earl and Barbara Thompson

    When I was in the U.S. Air Force and stationed in Ogden, Utah in 1955, I met  Earl Thompson Jr. from Hodgenville. Earl and I became friends.

    Later in about April 1956, our unit was shipped to Blytheville, Ark.

    I have been to Earl’s home in Hodgenville and met his family. He had a brother but I don't remember his name.

    Earl’s wife Barbara was from Utah. Earl re-enlisted and went back to Utah to Hill Air Force base.

  • Continue to support the Chamber of Commerce

    A very special thank you to the LaRue County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, the leadership and members for the recognition luncheon on Dec. 15. I appreciate the confidence and faith you placed in my ability to serve the county as executive director. You are the great volunteers who make all of us very successful.

    Please continue your support of Jessica Davis, our new director, and the work of the Chamber.

  • COLUMN: Take time to give thanks

    For many people, holidays are a time to come together and give thanks for what you have. Holidays are an appropriate time for family members to share something for which they are thankful. 

    Be thankful for the food you are eating. Someone put a lot of time, money, and effort into your holiday feast. Be thankful for the nourishment and hard work.
