  • Co-worker has made an impression in her fight against ovarian cancer

    Relay for Life is almost here and every year we add more people to the list of those we know that have been affected by cancer.

  • Relay for Life: 7-year-old finds strength in family and friends

    The LaRue County Relay for Life is May 14 at Hodgenville Elementary School. This is the fifth and final in a series of cancer survivor stories to bring awareness to this cause.

    “Cancer is the one word no parent wants to hear and no one should have to go through,” said Linda Long. But when Todd and Linda heard the diagnosis last fall for their second-grade daughter Ashley, reality set in for the young family.

  • Student provides lowdown on evil of Hitler

    Do you know who one of the most hated men in history is? If you don’t, let me tell you ... it’s Adolf Hitler. His rise to power was swift. However, the effects he had on Germany and its people were devastating. Hitler was a cruel man who persecuted millions.

  • 'Vampire Hunter' a surprisingly good read

    On this day, 145 years ago, President Abraham Lincoln hoped for a relaxing evening at the theater. Four years of Civil War had taken a toll on him and he needed the diversion.

    He, his wife Mary and another couple decided to watch the comedy “Our American Cousin.”  They were laughing in all the right places, unaware that the sole bodyguard had abandoned his post.

  • Relay: Williams enjoys status with 'Sponsor of Birthdays'

    The LaRue County Relay for Life is May 14 at Hodgenville Elementary School. This is the fourth in a series of cancer survivor stories to bring awareness to this cause.

    One of the newest Relay for Life advertisements is “The Sponsor of Birthdays” and Linda Williams is living proof as she just celebrated her 81st with all of her four children and a host of grandchildren and great-grandchildren. But 20 years ago if Linda had not been diligent with knowing her body, future birthdays may not have been. Linda is a colon cancer survivor.

  • Supports Shoffner

    I feel compelled to write this letter in support of Bobby Shoffner and his campaign for re-election of sheriff. I cannot say enough good things about Sheriff Shoffner and his deputies. Since 2005 until this past year, I worked for this county in the capacity of a social worker. During that time, one of my job duties was to perform investigations of allegations of child abuse and neglect. Any time the allegations were in the area of the county, I was always free to call any deputy working during that time.

  • Supports Cruse

    I feel there are many reasons to elect Mayor Terry Cruse sheriff of LaRue County. He is an experienced lawman with many years of excellent service for LaRue County and more recently, serving as mayor of the City of Hodgenville with the same high level of integrity in that position.

  • Government grabs more power with gun control

    Our precious little granddaughter Autumn Rae was amazing Dennis and I this weekend with her ability to read. It was a piece of mail Dennis had received and she pronounced a lot of big words for a first grader and we were beaming with pride at our latest prodigy. But what she was reading sent me into my latest rant.
