  • COLUMN: Random acts of generosity truly make a difference

    What I’ve come to learn is that random acts of generosity really go a long way.

    Whether it’s holding the door for someone, or simply helping someone carry a heavy couch inside a house, small gestures go a long way in someone’s eyes.

    A few weeks ago, I was having a stressful day, not to mention it was pouring down rain outside.

    I had to attend a meeting for an assignment, and when I got there, I realized I forgot an umbrella.

  • LETTER: Thanks to community support of Woman's Club breakfasts

     The Hodgenville Woman’s Club thanks all the community support and attendance given to our annual Lincoln Days meal fundraisers. We appreciate everyone who helps our club with these events.

    Special thanks to Eudell Stearman, Charlie Wheeler, B.J. Clark, Elizabeth Kinslow, Alison LaRue, Susie Litteral, Jason Lamb, Rob Barnhill, Alex LaRue and Hodgenville Rotary Club for their ongoing help.

    The club uses the funds raised to maintain our historic clubhouse on the downtown square and offer a local college scholarship.

  • NATIONAL NEWSPAPER WEEK: Your community newspaper is here for you

     Your newspaper will be there for you. 

  • COLUMN: Local newspapers connect us with our communities

     

     

    We can get our national news on cable television, catch the weather on local broadcast stations, listen to talk radio on the AM or FM dial and follow our favorite blogs on the Internet, but where do we turn for local information that directly impacts our daily lives? More often than not it is community newspapers.

    Technology has transformed how we gather information in the 21st Century. Newscycles run 24/7, tablets and laptops are becoming smaller and smart phones keep getting smarter.

    Your newspaper will be there for you.

    A simple statement, but let’s break it down a bit.

  • LETTER: Schools are a diamond in the rough

     LaRue County Schools were named one of four “Diamond in the Rough” district in Kentucky.

    Congratulations to Superintendent Sam Sanders, staff, teachers and LaRue County School Board for providing excellent student performance with highly efficient and frugal spending per student.

    The District strives to get better each day. How fortunate we citizens of LaRue County are to have leaders who are not only smart and capable but they are dedicated and compassionate about the success of each of our students.
