  • Ovesen Heights Trash for Cash

    Dear Editor,

    On Saturday, May 5, 2018, youth from Ovesen Heights Baptist Church, along with many other generous volunteers, participated in the Trash for Cash program and picked up trash through ten miles of roadway throughout LaRue County.

    This experience both brought the opportunity to spark conversation about God and it also gave the opportunity to give back to the wonderful community they all call home.

  • Knowledge is Power

     

    Dear Editor,

       I took it upon myself to take the advice of our current Judge Executive, Tommy Turner, and research certain information pertaining to LaRue County. My research included, but was not limited to: Debt, Growth, and Economics. I began on a site referenced by Mr. Turner on a social media post. The site contained information about Local Government Debt. I did not limit my search.

  • Compass Municipal Advisors

    Dear Editor,

    Compass Municipal Advisors, LLC provides financial consulting to cities, counties and other governmental entities throughout the Commonwealth. We recently completed work with LaRue Fiscal Court to refinance the County’s Jail Bonds, which resulted in a lower interest rate and savings to the County of over $72,000.

  • Former Commissioner of agriculture

     Dear Editor,

    I write this letter to the citizens of LaRue County, Kentucky in support of an individual of whom I have known for many years. He was a very dedicated County Judge Executive for your county and is from a long line of regional public servants.

    He not only served the citizens of LaRue County well but also served the citizens of the entire Commonwealth as an Executive Assistant to my administration as Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture. He is a devoted husband, father, and grandfather as well as being a very successful businessman.

  • County Treasurer

    Dear Editor,

    As Treasurer of LaRue County, I deal daily with county finances and interact with other county treasurers and state government. Recently I have been asked about LaRue County’s financial condition and how we compare to other counties. I am proud to state that LaRue County’s finances are in excellent condition and the envy of most counties in Kentucky.

  • Reader Supports Turner

    Dear Editor,

       You seldom read about me. I work with business, industry and clients that are looking to locate or expand in LaRue County. Most information is confidential.

    Historical perspective of the community can help tell the future.

    We have 2 individuals running for Judge/Executive who have both served in the position. Compare the facts:

    -Population fell during Pearman’s tenure, under Turner it has outpaced the state growth rate.

    Dear Editor,

  • Trash For Cash

    Dear Editor,

    We recently participated in a Trash For Cash cleanup project on some of our rural county roads as a fundraiser for upcoming missions trips.

    I am sharing this letter to voice concern about the ongoing issue of “littering” on the God given land we have been called to care for. I am speaking of the increasing amounts of garbage that is seen on the sides of the road.

    Which would you rather see? Tree-lined fence rows with blooming wild flowers or someone’s fast food containers, cardboard boxes, and liquor bottles/cans?
