• Union Christian Trash For Cash

    Dear Editor,

  • Ovesen Heights Trash for Cash

    Dear Editor,

    On Saturday, May 5, 2018, youth from Ovesen Heights Baptist Church, along with many other generous volunteers, participated in the Trash for Cash program and picked up trash through ten miles of roadway throughout LaRue County.

    This experience both brought the opportunity to spark conversation about God and it also gave the opportunity to give back to the wonderful community they all call home.

  • Curle Trash For Cash

    Dear Editor,

    We recently participated in the Trash for Cash program. It’s amazing what you find on the side of a highway or roadway! But what’s more amazing is why would you just roll down your window or load your truck and toss trash out? Is this the way you care for your own personal property?

    If you ever just once had to pick trash up on a road, you’d never toss another item out a window. Take pride in your community and let’s keep our highways clean.

  • Pearman’s Response

    Dear Editor,

    This is in response to Mr. Simms’s Letter to the Editor in the May 2, 2018, edition of The LaRue County Herald News. According to KRS 18A.140(4), it is illegal for a county employee, paid by the tax payers of LaRue County, to be involved in any election.  So, my only response to his letter is that not only is his information incorrect, but is it unlawful for him to publicly make these statements using my name? If so, I expect him to be held accountable for his actions!

  • Trash For Cash

    Dear Editor,

    We recently participated in a Trash For Cash cleanup project on some of our rural county roads as a fundraiser for upcoming missions trips.

    I am sharing this letter to voice concern about the ongoing issue of “littering” on the God given land we have been called to care for. I am speaking of the increasing amounts of garbage that is seen on the sides of the road.

    Which would you rather see? Tree-lined fence rows with blooming wild flowers or someone’s fast food containers, cardboard boxes, and liquor bottles/cans?

    Dear Editor,

  • Reader Supports Turner

    Dear Editor,

       You seldom read about me. I work with business, industry and clients that are looking to locate or expand in LaRue County. Most information is confidential.

    Historical perspective of the community can help tell the future.

    We have 2 individuals running for Judge/Executive who have both served in the position. Compare the facts:

    -Population fell during Pearman’s tenure, under Turner it has outpaced the state growth rate.

  • County Treasurer

    Dear Editor,

    As Treasurer of LaRue County, I deal daily with county finances and interact with other county treasurers and state government. Recently I have been asked about LaRue County’s financial condition and how we compare to other counties. I am proud to state that LaRue County’s finances are in excellent condition and the envy of most counties in Kentucky.

  • Former Commissioner of agriculture

     Dear Editor,

    I write this letter to the citizens of LaRue County, Kentucky in support of an individual of whom I have known for many years. He was a very dedicated County Judge Executive for your county and is from a long line of regional public servants.

    He not only served the citizens of LaRue County well but also served the citizens of the entire Commonwealth as an Executive Assistant to my administration as Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture. He is a devoted husband, father, and grandfather as well as being a very successful businessman.
