Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: A great egg hunt

     Awesome Events would like to thank all our volunteers from Freedoms Way Assembly of God, the special appearance of the Easter Bunny and all the business sponsors who helped with the Easter Egg Hunt this year. We had a great turn out.

    We want to thank Pizza Zone in Buffalo for all their help. We also want to thank Save-A-Lot, Our Hometown IGA, McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Subway, Lees Chicken and Papa John’s Pizza for all their support. A special shout out to Ann Morrison and Dixie Dunn for the yummy cookies. We hope to see everyone next Easter.

  • LETTER: Golf course history explained

     Golf course history explained

    As president of the LaRue County Golf Association, I have had several inquiries about the golf course.  I’m happy to respond to clear up any confusion that exists.

  • LETTER: Several in magazine's spotlight

    Several in magazine’s spotlight

    To whom it may concern:

    Recently, our small but mighty county was highlighted for many things that make this little place special. I read the reference to this in our local paper, but wanted to ensure those that work to ensure these businesses and events take place recognize that locals truly appreciate it. 

  • Thank God for our children

    A small town makes big news.

    Indeed, we have.

    Miss Ivy Brown, LaRue County’s very own Miss Kentucky Basketball, has been a welcome blast of fresh air to offset the stale stink of scandal we have seemed to attract in recent weeks.

    Ivy, we are so proud of the way you have conducted yourself on and off the court.

  • LETTER: There is a school system to run

    I am writing about Superintendent Sam Sanders’ DUI arrest.

    I am sure not saying this is good, but we are not perfect people. We are living in sad times. You can do good for years, then one mistake and people want to find a rope.

    I have not heard one person say Sam hasn’t done a good job.

    Our granddaughter told her grandmother, “I don’t care what they said. Sam has been nice to me.”

    Why can’t we be more like this 10-year-old girl?

  • LETTER: A time for forgiveness

     I am a resident of Bowling Green, but lived in Hodgenville until age 25. I was married there and am a 1975 graduate of LaRue County High School.

    I would hope that everyone would consider the body of work and passion that Sam Sanders has for the school system.

    I do not excuse that he made a bad choice but everyone that has jumped on the “fire him" bandwagon has more than likely made many mistakes themselves – it’s just that Sam is in the public eye and they are not. That alone does not justify termination.

  • LETTER: School district has improved under Sam Sanders
  • LETTER: Girl Scouts collect cleaning products

     Girl Scouts collect cleaning products

    Girl Scout Troop 929 juniors are working on their bronze awards – the highest award they can achieve.

    The girls can make a difference and they are proud of what they can accomplish.

    They will be collecting personal hygiene and cleaning products – soaps, deodorant, toothbrushes, detergent and toilet paper – to help our community.  All donated products will be given to Hodgenville and Abraham Lincoln elementary schools.
