• LANE LINCOLN CME trash for cash letter

    Dear Editor,

    The youth of Lane Lincoln CME Church in Hodgenville recently participated in the Trash for Cash program. This is a wonderful community service project for our young people. They went out on three separate occasions to clean up ten miles of our county’s roadways. They were amazed at what people will throw out on the side of the road. A good portion of our youth is at or approaching driving age and this experience has made them more aware of the effects of littering on our roadways.

    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.
