  • 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.

    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.

  • 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?

  • Larue County Choir Trash For Cash

    Dear Editor,

    On Saturday March 3, LaRue County Choir members participated in the fundraiser “Trash for Cash Program”.

    The choir students were very excited to participate in such a positive, rewarding fundraiser that is able to enhance our community but also gives them more bonding time. Several students and parent representatives of the LaRue County High School Choir came together that morning. They were divided into four large teams and were able to pick up ten miles of trash in their community to help our current choral program.

  • DYW trash for cash

    Dear Editor,

    On March 25, several supporters of LaRue County Distinguished Young Woman Program participated in the LaRue County Trash for Cash program. Community involvement and leadership are two components of the DYW program.

    We appreciate our supporters taking a few hours on a Sunday afternoon to come out and use this wonderful opportunity to make our community a better place to live. Most of the litter we collected were paper products, soda cans and glass bottles from trash being thrown out of vehicles.
