  • Mowing and Litterbugs
  • Letter about Woodie

    Dear Editor,

    People often loosely use the words “pillar of the community.” But LaRue County and Hodgenville lost not only a pillar of the community last week, but also a local icon and a real character as well.

    Woodie Handley, Sr. was a part of my life since I can remember. My father and he were great friends, largely because Woodie was one of a very short list of people who could hold their own with my dad. My dad respected that, and he respected Woodie’s knowledge.

  • LCHS girls soccer team trash for cash letter

    Dear Editor,

    On Saturday, June 23, the LaRue County High School Girls Soccer team participated in the Trash for Cash program in the Hodgenville, Magnolia and Mount Sherman communities.  We had about 25 young ladies and 10 adults take time out of their day to perform this community service. 

  • LANE LINCOLN CME trash for cash letter

    Dear Editor,

    The youth of Lane Lincoln CME Church in Hodgenville recently participated in the Trash for Cash program. This is a wonderful community service project for our young people. They went out on three separate occasions to clean up ten miles of our county’s roadways. They were amazed at what people will throw out on the side of the road. A good portion of our youth is at or approaching driving age and this experience has made them more aware of the effects of littering on our roadways.

  • Rotary Trash for Cash

    Dear Editor,

    Every year since 1950, the incoming President of Rotary International chooses a presidential theme to focus the objectives of the organization for the year to come.  For the 2017-18 year, that theme has been, “Rotary: Making a Difference.”  

    On the morning of Saturday, June 9, the Rotary Club of Hodgenville tried to make a difference in our community by cleaning up trash along some of our county roads as part of the LaRue County Trash for Cash program.

  • Senior Day Letter

    Dear Editor,

    We want to thank Steve Johnson, the President of the Fair Board, for another great day at the fair for the senior citizens event on Wednesday, June 6.

    We had prizes and cold drinks. Everyone was happy and content listening to the music, singing and dancing. Many people also registered for the prizes and gifts.

    We wish to thank the stores and businesses for their donations and gifts.

  • Parkway Trash for Cash

    Dear Editor,

    My name is DeWayne Gibson and I am the pastor of Parkway Baptist Church in Hodgenville. I recently led a team participating in the LaRue County Trash For Cash program.  It was a terrific experience for us.  We were able to see first hand the amount of trash that collects on LaRue County’s beautiful back roads.
