  • The successes of the LaRue County Chamber of Commerce would not be possible without our board of directors who are tireless advocates promoting our mission as a chamber and supporting our community in countless ways.

  • Last Saturday, anyone who walked inside the Laundry Basket received free laundry services. Not only were their loads paid for, they were given free laundry detergent, dryer sheets and snacks.

    Throughout the day, members of Hodgenville United Methodist Church took turns assisting the customers of the laundromat with their clothes.

    “They were awesome,” said Denise and Harvey Higdon, owners of the Laundry Basket.

  • A few years ago, Bobby Morrison picked out an embroidered panel for his own casket.
    His family did not know what he had done – but after they saw it last week at the funeral home, they agreed the design fit him perfectly.
    Morrison, who died June 8 at the age of 88, had selected depictions of Santa Claus, a fire department and Ferris wheel. The words “Scout Master Troop 425” underscored the colorful motifs.

  • LaRue County Deputy Eric Williamson, who works with the Greater Hardin County Narcotics Task Force, was a guest at the Hodgenville Rotary Club. He discussed the duties of the task force and the problems the area is facing. He was the guest of Rotarian Cheryl Thomas and is pictured with Rotarian Katie McDowell.

  • Addilyn “Addie” Roberts, the 3-year-old daughter of Angela and Ben Roberts of Hodgenville, started her final phase of chemotherapy last Monday.
    The little girl with the big smile was diagnosed with leukemia at age 2 and has been on treatment since then.
    “She’s been doing pretty well. She had a really rough month in February, though,” said Angela, who added her daughter lost 13 pounds in two weeks due to nausea caused by the chemo.
    “But she got through it and she’s doing really well,” she said.

  • There are times in life when we find ourselves between a rock and a hard place and we need someone to rescue us. The psalmist seems to be in such a place when he pleads with God in Psalm 141 to “come quickly.” He says, “Hasten to me. Give ear to my voice when I call to Thee.”
    God loves for his children to talk to him in prayer. Someone has said that prayer is our talking to God and Bible reading is God talking to us.
