    Find Waldo Local is a great summer vacation activity and a wonderful way to support local businesses and the Shop Local movement in the community, including the partners of The Sweet Shoppe, Lee’s Famous Recipie, The LaRue County Herald News and more.

    Because of my relative youthfulness (37), I can be tempted not to directly address my elders. But God has much to say to them in the Scriptures. I’ve recently been encouraged and inspired by the sweet example of Juanita Cruse, who after a long and difficult life, finished life by dying well and going to meet her Savior with eager expectation. Here are some truths to the elderly from observation and from Psalm 71.

  • Have you heard the old expression, “Better late than never.”  Fathers, please accept my congratulations and prayers for your recent Fathers Day.  I hope you had a good day and the days since then and in the future will be days of blessing for you.

    Let me acknowledge some things before we look at some statistics.  I realize there are some one-parent homes that are doing the best they can, and the mother is to be commended where there is no father present.  

  • Sarah Whelan, the 13-year-old homeschooled daughter of David and Beverly Whelan from Howardstown, was among the students honored by the Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP) for their exceptional scores on the ACT or SAT. She was recognized at a state-wide ceremony at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green on May 19, 2017.

  • Fort Knox Federal Credit Union awarded a one-time $1,000 scholarship to Seth Paul Newby of LaRue County High School.

    Each year, Fort Knox Federal provides $1,000 in financial assistance to a select number of deserving college-bound high school students who are members or are the sons or daughters of members of Fort Knox Federal Credit Union.  The scholarships are designated the Howard Roush Memorial Scholarships, in honor of a former Fort Knox Federal president.
