    Dear Editor,

    I am fed up with the way “political correctness” dominates today’s society.

  • Letter: Remembering 9/11

    Dear Editor,

    On some anniversaries we celebrate. On others we reflect.

    The 16th anniversary of the attack on America and New York’s World Trade Center is one of the times for reflection. There is truly nothing to celebrate in the extraordinary tragedy of 9/11.

    As much as I would like to forget some of them, the images from that day will never be out of my mind, nor will the victims and their families.

  • LETTER: Informing community about tax rate info

    Dear editor,

    As a parent and alumna, I am honored to serve as a member of the LaRue County Schools Board of Education. I couldn’t be prouder of all our students and staff are accomplishing and that our district is the eighth highest achieving in Kentucky.

    Your local schools want to continue and build upon this success, ensuring every LCS student has the educational opportunities they need to reach their full potential. To do that, it is imperative we begin sincere planning for the future, including our financial needs.

    This was the second year for the dinner and it was a huge success. That was proven by watching 375 people mix and mingle while enjoying appetizers and dinner on a perfect August evening on our town square.

    Dear Editor,

  • Just Ask: What's with all these helicopters?


    I noticed helicopters spraying corn fields. What has changed in corn production where helicopters are used now instead of spray buggies?
