  • Dogs could hurt children in subdivision

    (Recently) my cat died at the animal hospital, because dogs are able to run loose in the area — three dogs, two of them without a dog tag one. The other has a tag which was stolen from around my dog’s neck and placed on the third. I called the dog pound, when I learned there is no dog tag required in Laurel County. If so, why did I have to pay for one on my dog? They said they couldn’t do anything unless I was able to catch the dogs, and then call the animal warden to come get them. I called Noah Baker, the magistrate for my area, and never received an encouraging word.

  • Thank you to participants in first 5K for Justice

    We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated in the first annual 5K Race for Justice on Oct. 9. We at the London Department of Public Advocacy and the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office are truly appreciative of all of the runners who came out, and would like to particularly honor the American veterans who ran with us that morning, showing their support for London’s Welcome Home to Vietnam Veterans.  We are honored to have had the opportunity to host our race in support of that event.

  • Former resident proud of his hometown

    My wife and I visited friends and relatives in your area for 10 days in early October, as we have done many times over the years. I grew up in Laurel County but left at age 18 and never lived here since. That is not necessarily by my choosing, but career choices lead me to other places. However, Laurel County has always been “home” to me.

  • Trying to enforce ‘good prevails’ lessons of life

    We have been living in the London area for the last three years. We noticed early on there is a problem with some in the community not following parking laws in the handicap and fire lanes.

  • Coal industry can be helped in the Nov. 2 election

    With Election Day just around the corner, I take this opportunity to urge all of the readers of The Sentinel Echo to get out and vote. And consider also that, if you flip a switch to turn the lights on, there is a good possibility that the electricity is produced from coal. And, you probably also realize a savings on it because it is produced from coal.
