Today's Features

  •  To see Charles Butler and his infectious, sometimes mischievous, grin you would never know he is battling chronic lymphocytic leukemia. But Charles is a survivor and he knows he is among the fortunate ones. 

  • Persuaded by a part-time farm hand working on the family grain and dairy farm, Dale Dobson, now safety coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Agriculture, joined the LaRue County Volunteer Fire Department.
    “Brad Miller was his name,” said Dobson. “He would always say, ‘come on man, join ... you’d really like doing this at night,’ so in February 1989 I finally did.”

  • The message of Easter is that Jesus conquered sin and death and rose again. The result is that we have the promise of eternal life in a perfect environment.

    This is important because of our heritage. We are descendants of Adam and Eve. They were created in the image of God to live forever. But this changed when they sinned. They started to grow old and to wonder, "What happens after I die?"

  •  Madeline Warren is proud to announce the birth of her sister, Harper Willow Warren. 

    Harper Willow was born at 7:46 a.m. on Feb. 8, 2012 at Hardin Memorial Hospital in Elizabethtown. She weighed 7 pounds 4 ounces and was 19-inches long.

    She was welcomed home by her parents, Wesley and Nicole Warren of  Hodgenville.

    Maternal grandparents are Betty and Randy Morgan of Roanoke, and Steve and Laura Landrum of LaFayette, Ala.

    Paternal grandparents are C.E. “Junior” and Imogene Warren of Magnolia.

  •  The LaRue County Public Library has several new books.

  •  Mel Gibson’s movie, The Passion of Christ, covered the last 12 hours of Jesus’ earthly life. It is not a movie I would watch for entertainment value, but I would watch it for love value.

    For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son …” (John 3:16).

    God gave Jesus because He loved us. The trial and death of Jesus shows us how much he loved us.

    Jesus came to die on the cross for our sin. Though we were not there 2,000 years ago, our sins killed Jesus just the same.

  •  In the mid ‘60s when I was in junior high, I was part of LaRue County School’s Physical Fitness team. We were one of the first school districts to embrace President Kennedy’s push for exercise and physical education in schools.

    We would travel throughout our region performing at PTO meetings and even appeared on a Louisville TV station demonstrating a variety of exercises from gymnastics to basic exercise moves. The familiar exercises of today were unheard of and the whole concept of P.E. was in its infancy.

  •  Once when my little granddaughter, Layla, was less than 3 years old, she was in the study rummaging through a bookshelf.  She found an old paperback with a picture of a stained glass window and a cross on the front cover.  She immediately said, “Nana! This says Jesus loves me!”

    Out of the mouth of babes! Such a profound theological idea proclaimed so simply!

  •  Congratulations to all the participants in the 4-H Poetry Contest. Participants are to be commended for their efforts. Eighty-three poems were entered and judged.

    The poems were divided into two age groups for judging. Junior division participants are ages 9-13 and the senior age division includes 14-18 year olds.

    The top 8 junior poems and the top 4 senior poems will advance to the District competition.

    These poems will also be published in the District 4-H Poetry Book. All winners will receive a copy of the poetry book.

     

  •  Many of us are familiar with the “sell-by,” “best if used by” and “use-by” dates that appear on food products. These dates are expiration dates that provide information on the quality of products purchased. Knowing what these dates mean help consumers make better decisions on product quality, what to keep, what to toss and when.

    The “sell-By” date lets the store know how long they should display a product for sale. It is best to buy food products before this date expires.
