    Dear Editor,

  • Letter to the Editor

    Dear Editor:

    The only time many people pay attention to their local school board is when there’s a tax vote, but school board members do much more than just setting tax rates.

    LaRue County school board members, elected by the people, are responsible for our community’s most precious resource and the key to its future – our children and their educational opportunities.

    Dear Editor,

  • Letter about Woodie

    Dear Editor,

    People often loosely use the words “pillar of the community.” But LaRue County and Hodgenville lost not only a pillar of the community last week, but also a local icon and a real character as well.

    Woodie Handley, Sr. was a part of my life since I can remember. My father and he were great friends, largely because Woodie was one of a very short list of people who could hold their own with my dad. My dad respected that, and he respected Woodie’s knowledge.

  • Mowing and Litterbugs
  • Gary Gardner Letter

    Dear Editor,

    My mother is recuperating at Sunrise Manor Nursing Home in Hodgenville after a fall in which she sustained multiple broken bones, leaving her unable to stand or walk, or even to lift herself up in the bed.  

    As a preface, I wanted to clarify that the conditions she alludes to are actually more severe than she conveys in her letter.  The other morning, already needing to use the restroom then, she called for assistance but was left to wait in her bed for over two hours before anyone came. 

  • Margie Gardner letter

    An Open Letter to God; and the Editor:

    Yes, God, I’ve always known that there is a difference between Heaven and Hell, but never realized how much until recently.  On June 5, I had a bad fall, breaking my ankle and my elbow.  Dr. Been took care of my broken bones like the pro that he is.  At E-town Hospital I was under the care of Dr. Badiwala who was both knowledgeable and compassionate.  All the nurses and aides were excellent. 

  • Editor’s note: response to letters about Sunrise Manor care
