  • Radiography club trash for cash

    Dear Editor,

    On the afternoon of Good Friday Elizabethtown Community and Technical College Radiography Club members spent their afternoon picking up trash in LaRue County. They were participating in the Trash for Cash program. Seventeen members and one advisor spent hours picking up trash along county backroads.

  • 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,

    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.

    Dear Editor,

    The Ugandan Kids Choir visited our community on September 19 presenting cultural music, dance and worship songs. The children were guests of the Hodgenville Christian Church Disciples of Christ and blessed all they met.

    A special thanks to all who attended and to those who welcomed and fed them. Thanks to the City of Hodgenville, ABE 97.3, The LaRue County Herald News, Awesome Cafe, Pizza Hut and Lee’s Chicken. The Choir will continue their annual tour of the U.S. and return this fall to Uganda, Africa.

  • Margie Gardner letter

    An Open Letter to God; and the Editor:

    Yes, God, I’ve always known that there is a difference between Heaven and Hell, but never realized how much until recently.  On June 5, I had a bad fall, breaking my ankle and my elbow.  Dr. Been took care of my broken bones like the pro that he is.  At E-town Hospital I was under the care of Dr. Badiwala who was both knowledgeable and compassionate.  All the nurses and aides were excellent. 

  • 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.

  • 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,
