    LaRue County Public Library

    The LaRue County Public Library has a Guys’ Read Book club that meets twice a month. The goal of the club is to make reading for boys, ages 9-12, more of a joy than a chore. By having men in the community be mentors for the boys, it is intended to allow the boys to see that men enjoy reading too and fathers are also invited to participate.

  • We extend our deepest sympathy to the families of Hazel Dixon of Bonnieville who passed away last Monday. Her Homegoing Celebration was last Saturday morning at Brooks Funeral Home in Munfordville. She was the mother and mother-in-law to Eunice and Reverend Billy Curle of Hodgenville. Also, our deepest sympathy goes to John Ford of Vine Grove in the passing of his sister-in-law. Her funeral was in South Carolina.

    Maundy Thursday Service

  • By Paul Richey

    Do you remember the Tombstone Pizza commercials? These commercials were often set in the old west and with a situation where someone could be facing death. At a critical moment in the scene, someone asks, “What do you want on your tombstone?” Immediately, the scene flashes to everyone enjoying their tombstone pizza just the way they like it.

  • The greatest symbol of new life is found in an empty tomb. That first Easter when the women came early to the tomb to anoint the body of Jesus, they found the stone rolled away and the tomb empty. Upon that empty tomb rested the validity of Christianity.

    Imagination is a wonderful thing. Out of it we get a fairy that pays money for teeth and a rabbit that lays eggs. But this is all empty celebration. You don’t need a bunny or some eggs to get excited about Easter. Our celebration is in an empty tomb.

  • Senior Citizens music

    The LaRue County Senior Citizens Center in Hodgenville has music beginning at 6:30 p.m. every Saturday. Musicians and singers are welcome.

    For more information call Charles 270-358-4311 or email Viola Riggs at viola47@windstream.net.
