  • Thought for the week:  There will always be people in life who treat you wrong. Be sure you thank them for making you strong.

    I hope everyone had a great Mothers Day. We went to Hodgenville Grill for lunch then came home and spent the afternoon on the front porch and enjoyed the beautiful weather as I worked in a new flowerbed. Birthday banners are set to be ready for my birthday on the 19th.

    I can’t believe that it is graduation time again, which happens on my birthday this year. Where did the year go?

  • I hope that all the mothers had a great day on Mother’s Day.

    Congratulations to those who are graduating from high school and college. Students were recognized during morning services this past Sunday morning at First Baptist.

    Leland Thurman has returned home and Finis Walker is a resident at the Sunrise Manor Nursing Home.

  • With LaRue County’s Relay for Life scheduled for Saturday, June 3, luminary sales to honor or remember a loved one is now one of the main goals of the local Relay for Life teams.

    The white illuminated paper bags with names of those stricken with cancer will line both sides of the perimeter of the roundabout in downtown Hodgenville on Relay night with the Remembrance Ceremony taking place at 10:30 p.m.

    During the event, the names of survivors and those remembered will be read aloud and walkers will then silently make a lap in their honor. 

  • In 2015, the U.S. Surgeon General issued a “Call to Action” to encourage Americans of all ages and abilities to walk more. This call was also to inspire communities to create safe and accessible places for people of all abilities to travel.

    Walking is a great way to incorporate physical activity and movement into your daily routine. Walking does not require expensive equipment, a gym membership or special instruction/skill.
