    Ihad the privilege of riding along with one of LaRue’s most knowledgeable people when it comes to roads in the county, Ron Whitlock, Transportation Director for LaRue County Schools. Along with his daughter Katherine, Whitlock showed me some of the prettiest places in LaRue. Whitlock said, “I love LaRue county and I think everyone shoule know what it’s all about.”

    We started by driving down to Whitlock Road. Whitlock shared the story of how his Grandfather, Hubert Whitlock, bought a farm and made a life for himself and his family.

  • Hodgenville News - October 7, 2015

    Thought for the day: Don’t you give up. Don’t you quit. You Keep walking. You keep trying. There is help and happiness ahead. It will be alright. Trust God!

    Glad there was a great turn out for the Luke 14 event that was held on September 26, I forgot all about it. Sounds like a lot of fun was had by all.

    Another wet, cold and breezy Lincoln Days has come and gone. We didn’t make it this year, makes only three times we have missed since it started. It’s just getting harder and harder to take Mom and Angela to things like that.
