Today's Opinions

  • 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.

  • Hours of Prayer

    The annual “Hours of Prayer,” a worldwide program, will be 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 23.

    Please join in one hour of prayer for the nursing homes, various types of care centers and their residents around the world. This is the hour we can all come together as a like-minded body of Christian believers. Even though we may be far apart in location, we can become united in spirit.

    Other locals around the country and the world will be praying.

  • Anyone else suffering from disconnects?

    I don’t know how our current cycle of national elections will turn out. I do know I feel jerked around by a lot of what I have heard and read. So many statements of disconnected, incomplete and sometimes incorrect information ….

    Among these:

  • A RINGING TRUTH: How to stop harassing debt collectors

    A debt collector yelled at me this morning. I tried to yell back – but I think she hung up the phone before I got to that point.

    And I think it was a debt collector. She had all the required traits – attitude, persistence, hide like a water buffalo.

    The funny thing is … it wasn’t my debt.

    It was my morning snooze, however. I worked 16 hours Monday and another eight Tuesday – on top of the 60-or-so from the previous week – so I believed a few extra zzzzs were owed me.

  • It’s homecoming time of year

    I recently overheard someone say that this time of year is “homecoming time” again.

    There are indeed several special opportunities and calls to look to “going home” and devoting time with loved ones: Thanksgiving and Christmas/New Year’s Day as well as infrequent events: weddings, funerals, special-count birthdays, reunions of various types.

  • Absentee ballots eliminate excuses for missing the Nov. 2 election

    Although the Nov. 2 election is still several days away, many voters across Kentucky have already cast their ballots. State law provides opportunities for voters to cast absentee ballots through Nov. 1.

    In LaRue County, the process is simple: Go to County Clerk Linda Carter’s office and tell the worker you would like to cast an absentee ballot. They’ll ask a few questions and assist you with paperwork. You sit at a table, mark the ballot and feed it into a voting machine to be scanned.

    That’s it.

  • Cruse thanks constituents

    In December 2010, I will conclude 16 years of service on the LaRue County Board of Education. I wish to offer my sincere thanks to the voters in my district who have allowed me such an opportunity to serve. During my tenure on the Board, I have had the good fortune to work with three fine superintendents and several equally fine board members.

  • Project Graduation appreciates help

    Parents of graduating seniors are at work on funding Project Graduation for the 2011 graduating class. This annual event is an opportunity for students to celebrate this milestone in a fun and safe environment.

    This year we started our fundraising drive by hosting a booth at Lincoln Days. We want to thank all parents that donated items to sale and those who worked.
