  • I love a good road trip. Not the driving across the country kind of road trip, I prefer to get lost in back roads that meander through the county-side. I enjoy finding off the beaten path sights and can’t resist turning down a road I haven’t traveled. Now that I’m working in LaRue County I’m eager to learn all about it and one of the first things I want to do is get “Lost in LaRue.” Join me on my adventures as I take pictures of places and people and write about my findings.

  • Anxiety and depression affectsover 40 million adults in the United States annually, almost 20% of our total population. Recently I got to sit down with Savannah Clemons, a local professional counselor, and talk with her through the subject of depression. Here are some excerpts from our discussion:

    Is it ok to be depressed? What are the dangers of depression?

  • The Apostle Paul has a pastor’s heart, which is borne out in his writings. Consider his letter to the church at Philippi, a church he dearly loved. He tells them they are in his mind, in his heart and in his prayers (Philippians 1:3-11).

    The church at Philippi had been founded by Paul on his second missionary journey. The work was small at first among a few women by the river side. Lydia, a seller of purple, was his first convert, and she was soon joined by the Philippian jailer and his family (Acts 16:12-40).

  • Lorriane Embree is improving and will hopefully be released from the hospital on Monday in Detroit, Michigan. Joyce Embree Hosea is doing well. Chris Goodin. Sr. returned to his residence this past Sunday morning from Sunrise Manor Nursing Home.

    Jackie Handley had outpatient surgery last week. Jimmy Handley was admitted to Veterans Hospital in Louisville last weekend.

  • Thought for the week: Life is boring if you don’t laugh, Joke around and be a little crazy every now and then. At the end of the day, it’s about being happy.

    The LaRue County Hawks Football team is off to great start this season with a 5-0 record. Keep up good work. The weather has been nice couple past days. I so wanted to work in flower bed, but didn’t want to stir up my allergies again. It will have to wait a few more days and I am hoping weeds will stop growing.
