  • What does it mean to be committed to Christ?
    Commitment demands a choice. To achieve any goal or purpose requires commitment, whether for good or for evil. Commitment to follow Christ requires a decision of the mind followed by an act of the will.
    Psalm 37:5 says “Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.” Commitment to the Lord manifests itself in obedient trust.

  • We have just finished an eventful year. There are things we want to discard in the wastebasket, forget and move on into 2011. But there are some things we want to hold on to and make a part of this new year. I want to mention three of those truths.
    God knows you and you are important to God. We may not feel important to God or anyone else. Our lives may not seem to have any purpose. Don’t you think the shepherds on the hillside in Bethlehem may have felt that way? Mary may have felt insignificant before the angel announced to her she was to bear the son of God.

  • Elizabethtown Community and Technical College is hosting a juried art exhibit.
    The exhibition theme is inspired by natural elements. Over the last 100 years artists have continually turned to organic design as a response to mass-produced, machine-made and computer-generated designs. For some, organic is an attempt to reevaluate what it means to be “modern.“
    Topic: Works of art of every media type and style that address the topic of nature, and organic design through one or more of the following themes:
    •Nature
    •Environmentalism

  • In 1905, Las Vegas was established when a railroad company auctioned 110 acres of land. The Wright brothers succeeded in keeping their third aeroplane in the air for 30 minutes. Tsar Nicholas II begrudgingly granted Russia's first constitution. And in New Hope, John Davis, the town's blacksmith, and his wife, Elizabeth Brady Davis, welcomed a baby girl, Mary Stella.

  • Jim Evans has had many unusual calls for help during his 25 years as LaRue County dog warden.

    “I’ve had calls for me to come and get possums, coons, and horses,” said Evans, who is retiring at the end of the year. “I’ve even had a call for me to catch a skunk and a three-foot lizard.”

    As dog warden, his actual responsibility was to pick up only the canines, so he would usually refer the callers to the appropriate people who could capture the other animals. He has had his hands full, sometimes literally, with dogs.

  • Local funeral home operators Brad Turner and Todd Skaggs are offering a 3,500 square-foot home in Hodgenville for the taking.
