• Overwhelmed by outpouring of support

    Dear Editor:

  • Successful blood drive

    Dear editor,

  • Letter to the editor - Carl Riggs

    Dear Editor,

    Changing my voter registration to Republican never seemed necessary. Being apolitical and generally apathetic most of my life, and given the anemic amount of Republican candidates ever on a Kentucky ballot always reinforced futility of such an effort. But for the last few years I did begin paying attention and forming opinions, and seeing that despite my national party’s ever present mantra of altruism it was or at least had become predatory and in no way represented those it took from or those it gave to.

  • Cosmetology school in Brockman Center - letter to the editor

    Dear editor,

    “The creation of beauty is art.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

    There is “beautiful” renovation going on at the Campbellsville University Brockman Center on KY 210 at the northern outskirts of Hodgenville.

    Passers by can peak into the windows of the Brockman Center to see a laboratory taking shape. The laboratory is a new site for the Campbellsville University Cosmetology School. Come early December smock-wearing students, with cases in hand, will be arriving and instruction will get underway. 

  • Letter to the editor - Nile and Ruth Riddle

    Dear Editor,

    Many people may take first emergency respondents for granted, but assuredly that was not the situation on Thursday, November 12, as a fire assisted by 20 to 30 mile winds rushed rampantly through our garage/tool shed.

    We appreciate the hard work and the effort that were given by the Buffalo and Hodgenville Fire Departments as they extinguished the fire and prevented it from spreading to other buildings on our farm. Thank you.


    Nile and Ruth Riddle

    Dear Editor,

    The Community Health Clinic of Hardin and LaRue Counties has been in existence since 2001 in Elizabethtown. This clinic was created to serve the working poor in Hardin and Laure Counties. Over the years our services expanded to include those that had no income. In 2014, with the implementation of the ACA, many of our patients qualified for the Medicaid expansion, but those that did not, remained with the clinic after getting on Kynect and finding that the insurance was out of their reach financially.

  • Concern over Kynect


    Dear Editor,

    I am a LaRue County native writing in concern to the livelihood of many of my friends and family. In the past few days, it has occurred to me how many people I know who will lose their healthcare if our governor “guts” Kynect and the Medicaid expansion. Not just my husband, but our parents, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and siblings as well as numerous friends and acquaintances.

  • Harp Twins visit, thank you

    Dear Editor,

    A simple thank you seems so inadequate to the community of Hodgenville for their support of the Harp Twins concert event. Even though this event happened in a two day span; months of time, energy, and preparation went before the event.

  • Letter to the editor - November 4, 2015

    Dear Editor,

    I would like to thank the generous and big hearted people of LaRue County for making the Mike Coffey benefit horse show a big success.

    Thank you to the LaRue County Saddle Club for the use of their club grounds. A big thanks to the LaRue County Beef Cattle Association for all their help and hard work. Thank each of you that donated and bought items for the silent auction, cake auction and each of our raffles. Thank you for attending and riding in the show.

  • Letter to the editor - 2016 Relay for Life Leadership Team

    Dear Editor,

    The LaRue County Relay for Life Leadership Team would like to publicly thank the LaRue County Girls Volleyball Team and the LaRue County Football Team for their outstanding efforts to jumpstart the 2016 Relay for Life fundraising effort.
