Today's Features

  • As the world strives to become more energy efficient, many are switching the type of bulbs used in the home from traditional incandescent to light emitting diodes commonly known as LEDs.

    According to the Consumer Federation of America, the average electricity cost of a single 60-watt equivalent incandescent bulb is around $5 per year, while the energy costs of a comparable LED are $1 dollar per year. Couple this with the fact that incandescent bulbs will need to be replaced every one or two years and LEDs should last around ten years or longer.

  • According to Emerson the story of the Prodigal Son was the greatest short story in or outside the Bible.  Many would agree with him.  The parable reveals much — the love of God in picture form, the heart of God, how far one can go from God, the hope for one in the far country and the toll of a life lived apart from God.

  • As I explained in the July 19 edition of The LaRue County Herald News, I made a trip to one of the most remote locations in LaRue County. To get there you have to go through at least two other counties, sometimes three depending on which way you go.

    The dappled light coming through the leaves on walnut trees and the vibrant blue of chicory that lined the road had me believing what my mom told me that “I suffer from Nature Deficit Disorder,” and I needed to slow down and just take in the scenery.

  • Rock painting, hunting and hiding have become a popular way for many LaRue Countians to spend their time. In Hodgenville, families can be seen downtown on the Square or at CreekFront Park walking around picking up little painted treasures at just about any point of the day.

    Some of these rocks have made their way all the way to New York and Florida. The LaRue County Library even set up a rock exchange, encouraging participants to bring in their painted rocks in exchange for others.
