Today's Opinions

  • Sanders retires with greatest goal achieved

    When Sam Sanders was named superintendent of LaRue County Schools 16 years ago, he set out to help make our school district one of the best in Kentucky.

    As he took the helm in 2002, LCS ranked 131st of 176 school districts. Today, as Sanders finishes his last month with LCS and prepares to retire as one of the state’s longest serving superintendents, I’m in awe of how much our district has accomplished during his tenure.

  • The Gift that keeps on Giving

    My family is generous almost to a fault. They love giving things away whether you want it, or need it, or would have absolutely no use for it. They have brought me up to be the same way. I even hear on multiple occasions that my wife and I are the best gift givers in our families. I only tell them, “I get it from my mom.” I love you mom.

    Mom. Mammaw. There’s no need for you to read past this point. The article is over and everything beyond this point is filler. It doesn’t pertain to you one bit. So both of you can stop reading right now.

  • Wrestling trash for cash

    Dear Editor,

    On Saturday, June 9 the LaRue County Wrestling program participated in the Trash for Cash program in which we cleaned up roads in the Athertonville and Roanoke areas of LaRue County. We had nine students and six adults participate in this community service.

  • Keep On Keeping On

    I have been trying to write a column for the newspaper the past couple of weeks and I have simply not been able to do it.

    Since my mom passed away in April, everything has been difficult. Trying to focus on my everyday responsibilities, trying to focus at work and pretty much just trying to focus on anything period has all been difficult.

    I am no stranger to this as I went through it when my dad died when I was ten years old. The only difference now is I have a lot more responsibilities and school has been replaced with work.

  • Hodgenville News

    Thought for the week: One needs different people in their life....a harbor in which to seek shelter against the storm, or simply to pay a visit because it is such a beautiful day. 

    Another county fair has come and gone. I entered 8 items this year, won five blue 1st place ribbons and three 2nd place ribbons. I attended the fair on Senior Day last Wednesday and I had a good time. Don’t forget to come out and support Relay for Life on Saturday, June 16. 

    Congratulations to Mattie Puyear on being chosen Mother of the Year. 

  • 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.
