  • You’ve been flocked! LaRue County High School Project Graduation is raising money for its chaperoned, post-graduation party for seniors. Residents who “get flocked” with Hawk-blue flamingos must make a donation of $5 to have the fowl removed from their front yards. If you’d like to flock

  •  The LaRue County Public Library will be promoting money management resources in conjunction with Kentucky Saves Week during the month of February. 

  •  Just as the late Reverend Martin Luther King had a dream that someday people of all races will live peacefully together, so the Reverend Aaron L. Moss, pastor of Lane Lincoln Christian Methodist Episcopal Church in Hodgenville, has a vision that this community will come together to celebrate Black History Month.

  •  Kaity Skaggs of Mount Sherman will participate in the 70th Annual Valentine Pageant at Campbellsville University.

    Skaggs, a sophomore, is among nine students competing in the “Silly Love Songs” themed pageant for a chance to move on to the Kentucky Mountain Laurel Festival in Pineville in May.

    The CU pageant is Feb. 10 in Ransdell Chapel, located at 401 N. Hoskins Ave., Campbellsville.

    The event is free and open to the public.

  •  The Kentucky State Police is featuring a modern interpretation of a heritage-inspired American muscle car for its Trooper Island raffle this year: the 2012 Dodge Challenger R/T Classic.

    The Challenger hits the road with a 5.7-liter, 372-horsepower HEMI V8 engine that delivers a throaty rumble and fuel saving technology of up to 25 mpg highway. It’s driver-friendly with a five-speed automatic transmission and its rear-wheel drive suspension transfers hardcore power to the road providing moves to match its muscle.

  • Scripture clearly teaches that God intends human life to include physical, emotional, and spiritual pleasure. But the Bible warns against the pursuit of certain pleasures: gluttony, extra-marital relations and drinking unto drunkenness, because they are sinful and ultimately produce great pain.

    Although the pleasures of life are not necessarily evil, neither do they bring ultimate meaning to life. Spiritual growth can be choked out by the pursuit of the pleasure of life. 

  •  Instead of waiting for tax refunds from the IRS, nearly 10 million consumers, many from low to moderate income families, borrow against part or all of their expected tax refunds. These refund loans are heavily marketed by paid tax preparers and immediately put cash in to the consumer’s hands, making it seem a quick and painless way to get cash. The quick cash comes at a price, however.

  • The LaRue County 4H Livestock Club collected toys, jackets, hats and gloves for donation to the Morrison Christmas Bus in December. From left, Jimmy Engle, Aaron Elswick and Snookie Morrison.

  • God is in the life-changing business. He takes a life that is bent and straightens it; a shattered one and puts it together again; and a dirty one and cleans it.

    There are two basic opinions as to how God changes a life.

    One is the passive approach where God does it all. The other opinion is the activist approach where it is all up to us. But I think it is a combination of the two where we both have a part.
