  • 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.

    Dear Editor,

  • 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.

  • Agstravaganza thank you

    Dear editor,

    On behalf of the Board of Directors of LaRue County Farm Bureau we would like to thank the community for the amazing support shown for our AgStravaganza Faith-Family-Farm-Food Dinner held on the square in downtown Hodgenville, August 12, 2017.

    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?

  • Concern about what the community looks like to visitors

    Dear Editor,

    After reading last week’s article on the American Queen Steamboat Company tours, we were filled with such pride in our community.   Even living on the road to Lincoln’s Birthplace, it always amazes us to read the statistics of visitors each year that travel to LaRue County to tour our park and visit the museum.
