  • 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.

  • Lincoln Days Letter

    Dear Editor,

  • Letter to the Editor

    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,

  • 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.

  • 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.
