  • “No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you.” Joshua 1:5

    Can you imagine trying to fill the shoes Moses wore? God had used him to turn the Nile River into blood, part the Red Sea, destroy the Egyptian army, receive his law on Mount Sinai and feed more than 2,000 Israelites each day in the wilderness.

  • The Cabinet for Health and Family Services announced that $24 million in federal funding has been released to Kentucky to help low-income families heat their homes this winter.

  • While Jerry Williams and Ken Baldwin were putting the finishing touches to their Christmas CD, “Strings and Bows,” last year at Williams’ home on North Lincoln Boulevard in Hodgenville, the two planted a seed idea for another album of a completely different nature.
    “I’m a Civil War buff and, since the War occurred 150 years ago, I thought that putting together a mixture of traditional and original songs with a flavor of the period would be a timely project,” said Williams.

  • Sunrise Manor Volunteers’ Executive Board voted to help fund Christmas presents for Adult Day Care participants by holding a bake sale, featuring homemade cookies and  candy, Dec. 16 at the  facility’s gift shop.
    At the board’s Nov. 1 meeting, Tickle Ragland, historian, reported that the scrapbook is almost up to date, but she needs pictures of volunteer activities.  Ann Easton reported  $4,398.15 in the organization’s treasury.

  • Although Magnolia resident Tickle Ragland and Sharon Meisenheimer, who lives in Walnut, Ill., have exchanged letters for 65 years, neither pen pal knew until recently that Sharon’s husband Lester has relatives buried in LaRue County.
    “We knew Lester’s grandparents came from Hodgenville and moved to Illinois where they were buried, but we didn’t know where the rest of his family was buried,” Sharon said.
