  • LETTER: E-cycling was a success

    June 2 was another demonstration that people in our environs do indeed care about protecting creation.

    St. Joseph Elementary School in Bardstown provided their spacious parking lot for the 5th Catholic Charities of Louisville electronics recycling day. This effort was endorsed by County Judge Executive Dean Watts,  Catholic Parishes in Nelson County: Basilica of St Joseph Proto Cathedral, St. Monica, St. Thomas, St. Catherine of Alexandria, Immaculate Conception, St. Gregory and St. Michael; and Sisters of Charity of Nazareth.

  • COLUMN: Ready to write with dignity and grace

    If you start seeing a different name in The LaRue County Herald News, have no fear: I will only be here for a little while.  
    My name is Ashley Scoby, and I will be interning with the paper for ten weeks throughout my summer. I’m currently a student at the University of Kentucky, but I’m originally from Glasgow, Ky., about a 40-minute drive from Hodgenville down 31-E.  

  • LETTER: Pets need special care in hot weather

     Hot weather is upon us and with the rise in temperatures comes much suffering for animals.

    Dogs are descendents of the wolf, an animal that spends its days in the cool forests or in rock shelters. Just as the wolf seeks shelter from the sun, dogs need shade. Rather than providing shade, a dog house sitting in the sun quickly becomes an oven. Deprived of shade a dog can die a slow and painful death from heat stroke. Dog houses need to be placed under a large tree or a side porch needs to be built on the house to provide shade.

  • LETTER: Auction for Africa fundraiser was a success

     A huge thank you to all the LaRue County businesses and individuals who donated items for our Auction for Africa fundraiser. We are blessed to live in such a great community. There’s not enough room to list all of them that made donations.

    I would like to give recognition to Arrowhead Archery and Pawn, owned by Louie and Melissa Payne. They donated their entire outdoor archery facility for our Aiming for Africa bow-shoot and allowed us to have all the proceeds. They are great folks operating a thriving business in Hodgenville and LaRue County.
