What if you were a bit chilled and needed a blanket or shawl tucked around you? What if you needed help cutting up your food or maybe feeding yourself? What if you wanted some water or ice? What if you needed your chin wiped? What if you needed someone to take you to the church services or various events? What if you would like someone to just sit and talk with you? What if you would like to have the Bible read to you? What if you wished for someone to just hold your hand, give you a hug or perhaps pray with or for you?

A newly opened section of Red Hill Cemetery has been set aside for infant and cremations interment.
The decision to “open an infant section” in the city-owned graveyard will allow land that was unsuitable for adult burials to be utilized, Hodgenville Mayor Terry Cruse said.
The Red Hill Cemetery Commission met Dec. 30 to discuss the project and finances of the cemetery. The commission is formed by members of Hodgenville City Council; the original commission was disbanded by the council in March 2008.
