  • Larue County Choir Trash For Cash

    Dear Editor,

    On Saturday March 3, LaRue County Choir members participated in the fundraiser “Trash for Cash Program”.

    The choir students were very excited to participate in such a positive, rewarding fundraiser that is able to enhance our community but also gives them more bonding time. Several students and parent representatives of the LaRue County High School Choir came together that morning. They were divided into four large teams and were able to pick up ten miles of trash in their community to help our current choral program.

  • DYW trash for cash

    Dear Editor,

    On March 25, several supporters of LaRue County Distinguished Young Woman Program participated in the LaRue County Trash for Cash program. Community involvement and leadership are two components of the DYW program.

    We appreciate our supporters taking a few hours on a Sunday afternoon to come out and use this wonderful opportunity to make our community a better place to live. Most of the litter we collected were paper products, soda cans and glass bottles from trash being thrown out of vehicles.

  • Letters to the Editor: Alcohol Vote

    Dear Editor,

    “I walk slowly, but I never walk backward” This is a quote from the 16th President of the United States of America, Abraham Lincoln. This quote still holds true today. Every step and action we take must be done cautiously and with much thought.

    On April 17, the City of Hodgenville will make a monumental decision at the polls. Will we remain a dry city or choose to go wet? The City of Hodgenville will be taking a step backward if they choose to vote “wet.”

  • Letter: Epidemic Evidence

    Dear Editor,

  • Letter: Hometown Teams a Hit

    Dear Editor,

    On behalf of the Trustees of the Lincoln Museum, we would like to thank everyone involved in bringing the Smithsonian’s Hometown Teams exhibit to Hodgenville for its six-week run. Fifteen communities in Kentucky were selected to host the exhibit during its two-year tour of Kentucky and it was especially rewarding to introduce new visitors to the cultural and historical programming that the museum has been providing since 1989.

  • LETTER: SBDM Councils Play Valuable Role

    Dear Editor,

    Kentucky’s SBDM councils bring together principals, teachers, and parents to improve culture and academic results in individual schools. Having led a council as principal and a district as superintendent, I know that attentive school councils play a critical role by seeing student needs from multiple perspectives. SBDM councils are ideally positioned to tailor decisions to make sense and get results for students and families.

  • Santas Helpers thank you

    Dear Editor,

    On behalf of the Santa Helpers, I would like to thank everyone for making the Morrison Santa Bus 51st year a very special Christmas.

    Thank you to the community for the kind donations of money, toys, clothing, bikes, and food that provided Christmas and food to the needy in our community.

    A big thanks to all the businesses that allow us to put donation boxes in your businesses to assist in the collection of all the community donations.

  • Tax Political Party Checkoff Box

    Dear Editor,

    This time of year taxpayers have an often overlooked opportunity to make their views, and values better represented locally and in Frankfort. The front page of the Kentucky Income Tax form contains a check-off box allowing taxpayers to send $2 of their tax payment to the political party of their choice. A portion of this checkoff goes to the county organization and a portion to the state organization. The Income Tax Check-Off Program is an effective use of tax dollars as it supports representative government at no cost to the taxpayer.

    Sincerely,
