  • Hodgenville news - June 21, 2017

    Thought for the week: Five things to tell yourself daily. 1. Keep trying, 2. Keep praying, 3. Stay positive, 4. Be awesome, 5. Become better. Not better than anyone else, but better than the person you were yesterday.

    For some reason the month of June just seems to be dragging by. I entered 12 items in the county fair and won six blue 1st place ribbons and five red 2nd place ribbons.

    I loved the story about Robert Hodgen’s great-great-great-great-great-granddaughter Brandi Weiss that visited Hodgenville. How awesome was that!
