  • The lamb opened one of the seals; the Lord is like a lamb, gentle, compassionate, loving, and kind, innocently suffering and dying to atone for our sins. Revelation 6:1

  • Everybody has trouble but nobody seems to want it. The trouble is not the trouble itself, but how we handle it. One young man loses his girlfriend and tries to commit suicide. Another young man loses his girlfriend, writes a song about it, and makes a million dollars. The difference is in the way you treat the problems that come to you.

  • Freedom from want has been a visionary goal of Americans since President Franklin D. Roosevelt mentioned it in his Four Freedoms speech to Congress in 1941.

    Several churches in LaRue County are doing their part to ensure, especially in these economically hard times, that LaRue County’s residents do not lack their basic necessities.

  • Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Park recently was voted the top historic landmark to visit in Kentucky.

    Kentucky Living magazine included the park in its “Best in Kentucky” April issue. The site dedicated to Lincoln’s Kentucky years draws about 200,000 visitors annually to the Sinking Spring and Knob Creek Farms both outside Hodgenville.

    The 16th President’s homestead beat out second-place Mammoth Cave National Park (two million visitors annually) and third-place My Old Kentucky Home in Bardstown (30,000 visitors annually).

  • More than 4,000 active duty, retired and reserve military and their family members are expected for a day of fun, refreshments and entertainment at the fifth annual Hooray for Heroes 11 a.m.-5 p.m. May 15 in the adjoining parking lots of Stithton Baptist Church and Wal-Mart in Radcliff. 

  • "The Very Worst Thing," a documentary film about the worst school bus crash in U.S. history, will be screened at the historic State Theatre 8 p.m. May 14.  Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the State Theater box office, and a limited number of tickets are also available for online purchase at www.theveryworstthing.com. 

  • If you are wondering how those flowering planters miraculously bloom on the square or how the pocket park between the Woman’s Club building and the Masonic building is maintained, here’s the answer. Main Street does it, partly through purchase of plants and rock and partly through volunteers planting and weeding efforts. Sometimes we are assisted by supervised inmates.

  • Congratulations to our board members who have appeared in the Herald News recently: Michael Huff, named a Governor’s Scholar; Nina Cundiff, elected 2010-2012 Fourth District Vice-Governor for the Kentucky Federation of Women’s Clubs.  Also, great picture of Leah Carter with some of the Lincolns a couple of weeks back.
