Letters

  • 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,

    Recently I received an email containing a link to a short documentary about the drug and alcohol epidemic in our country. It can be viewed at foxnews.com/politics/2018/03/02/kentucky-pushes-first-in-nation-opioid-tax.html.

  • 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,

  • Make use of the sidewalk

    Dear Editor,

    I recall a recent article about a wonderful young man who used his time and talent to extend the sidewalk in front of the LaRue County Middle School so more students could exit their vehicles at one time thereby eliminating the long line of cars.

  • Schools of thought

    Dear Editor,

    We are hearing a lot lately from school boards who have stepped up and made a case both locally and statewide for both restoring and increasing funding for schools.

  • Letters: Waste, food for thought

    Dear Editor,

    Pope Francis once said, “Throwing away food is like stealing from the table of those who are poor and hungry.” The reason why I include that quote is because of a very important problem, food waste. America is the leading contributor to food waste. It is very important that we bring light to this problem, not only on the holidays, but throughout the year.

  • Waste: Food for thought

    Dear Editor,

    Have you ever thrown away a perfectly good piece of food in the garbage? Did you know in 2014, we disposed of more than 38 million tons of food? The things we just throw on the ground can pollute the land and kill animals. About 955 of the food we throw away ends up in landfills or combustion facilities.
