  •  There is an old axiom which says, “Use it or lose it.” This principle can be applied to almost everything in life. 

  •  Methodist records needed

  •  It was about this time 75 years ago, when Nolin Rural Electric Cooperative Corporation began serving electricity to rural homes in Hardin and LaRue counties. Today, as the member-owned cooperative celebrates its diamond anniversary, the membership has grown to more than 33,000 and they provide electric service to nine counties.

  • The Red Hill Cemetery Commission met Monday for about 15 minutes.

    The group approved minutes and financial records for the period July 2012 to June 2013. There was $31,954.73 in income; $14,693 in general expenses.

    After taking out payroll expenses, health insurance, retirement and taxes, maintenance and repairs, the Commission lost $37,467.13 during that period.
    Diane Osborne asked the commissioners to look at a couple of trees that had been damaged by a storm sometime in the past. She said it is possible they could fall on and damage several monuments.

  • Tucked away in the country, without a sign to let travelers know they are passing through it, lies Lyons Station – or Lyons as it’s referred to by locals. 

  • The Buffalo Post Office is temporarily closed while the facility is treated for recluse spiders.

    In the meantime, Post Office box customers can pick up their mail at the Hodgenville Post Office, 102 S. Walters St., in Hodgenville between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to noon Saturday.

  • Athertonville, a small town located between Hodgenville and New Haven, was once known as the home of several distilleries.

    Many local residents earned their livelihood at the distilleries, which historians believe cropped up in the late 1700s. The waters of nearby Knob Creek were thought to give the liquor an extra bite.

    Thomas Lincoln, the father of Abraham Lincoln, is believed to have worked at a distillery owned by Wattie Boone, a relative of pioneer Daniel Boone.

  • Leather bound, plastic covered and hand bound – books of all shapes, sizes, colors, and content add color to the New Haven Public Library, a branch of the Nelson County Public Library.

    The new branch location opened on May 6, 2012, and has helped rekindle the community’s interest in reading.

    Formerly located on South Main Street, the library had been confined to a one-room building that limited resources and the number of literacy materials offered to the public for 20 years.
