• LETTER: Bike Brigade needs donations

    Wesley Meadows United Methodist Churh is sponsoring the bike brigade which is part of the Santa Run held on Christmas Eve in LaRue County.

    The project officer for the bike brigade is Robbin Redmon.

    The Santa Run consists of the Rudolph Bus (a repurposed school bus), along with fire trucks, squad cars, a caravan of pickups and cattle trailers making five stops in the community giving food, toys and bicycles to underprivileged children.

    Robbin is receiving many different kinds of bikes from donations, yard sales and the Internet.

  • Just ask

    How much has the county spent to house Abdullah White in the LaRue County Detention Center?


    According to jail records, the total for his accommodations and meals was almost $18,000 as of last week. White has spent some time in the Hart County Detention Center as well. He was charged with the 2011 murder of 28-year-old Kristie Allen.

    AGstravaganza was enjoyable

    Congratulations on a super event.

    I very much enjoyed the variety and mix of the agri-experience throughout our community. This is a great educational opportunity for our youth as well as adults. To learn that local cabbage is not only grown and sold but also contains the value-added element of coleslaw production. And to find that local corn has become an important ingredient in Kentucky bourbon distilling is most satisfying to me.

    Take pride in our town

    I really love living in Hodgenville. I didn’t grown up here, but I do plan on growing old and raising my children here.

    The only thing I do wish is that the community would take more pride in the way this town looks and how they keep their homes and lawns.

    My family keeps our yard and home as nice as we possibly can, but I see homes with old cars, trash and grown up lawns and think. “wow, this is our city.” This is your home – take pride in it.

  • Perfect People

    Perfect people

    I’m amazed at how many perfect people live in Hodgenville and the county.

    They have set themselves up as God, judge, jury and hangman for Terry Cruse and MaDonna Hornback. Some people that own a business or people who work there, have even mouthed off that Terry Cruse and his family should be run out of town. Well we are not going anywhere. How would you like to be judged and convicted before you ever went to trial?

  • Should middle schoolers "play up?"

     I am writing to address a situation at LaRue County Schools. My daughter, who will be a freshman this year recently tried out for the LaRue County High School  Cheerleading Squad. The results were posted Friday night and my daughter did not make the squad – she was chosen as an alternate. I am OK with this, but I have since found out that a seventh-grader made the LCHS Cheerleading Squad.
