  • Class of ‘89 planning

  • The joy of the Lord and the joy that the world gives are very different. The world’s joy is artificial, is not real and is on the outside. Booze, drugs, clothes, cars, stocks and bonds are outward things. The fleeting joy they bring does not last.

    Jesus said, “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly” (John 10:10). He came that we might have this joy to the full. It is a joy that the world does not give, nor can it take the joy away. This is a joy where God is at the center of life and is in control.

  • “By one spirit we were all baptized into one body.” I Corinthians 12:13

    Mark Twain joked about putting a dog and cat together in a cage to see how they would get along.

    They did fine so he added a bird, a pig and a goat.

    They did fine until he added a Baptist and a Catholic – and soon there wasn’t a living thing left.

    Seriously, there’s nothing Satan enjoys more than causing division by pitting Christian against Christian, often over insignificant issues.

  • National FFA scholarship applications are available at http://www.ffa.org/index.cfm?method=c_programs.Scholarships. Applications must be submitted online and are due Feb. 17.

  • Renovating pastures and hay fields to renew grass productivity is one of the most important things LaRue County farmers can do to improve the grassland grazing and hay land in the county. Pastures in LaRue County feed the county’s 28,000 head of cattle and calves in addition to the other ruminant livestock and horses. Believe or not, pasture renovation time will soon be here.

  • When Melissa Pearman, Hodgenville Family Resource Center coordinator, set the goal for the center’s third Red Cross blood drive, she thought 32 donors would be great.

    When workers totaled the pints of blood donated at Hodgenville Elementary School’s gymnasium Jan. 26, however, the amount collected, 54 pints, proved to be a happy surprise.

  • Hodgenville Hometown IGA and IGA Express locations will hold the IGA Hometown Healthy Challenge through March 14. The event is designed to help shoppers make healthier lifestyle choices with recommendations from USDA’s MyPyramid guidelines for food choices and exercise plans.

    IGA Hometown Healthy Challenge encourages IGA shoppers to recognize and experience MyPyramid’s guidelines.

    On Feb. 27, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. and Feb. 28, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., booths will include local health care providers, nutritionists and product sampling.

  • The South Fork Area Homemakers met Feb. 17 at the LaRue County Extension Service with Mary Lou Owen presiding. Hostesses were Louise Graber and Delores Bale.

    President Owen opened the meeting by having the roll call answered with the question “Tell us about your ice storm experience.” Treasurer’s report was given by Della Thomas and secretary’s report by Janice Bowen.

    Other members present were Virginia Allen, Ann E. Flanders, Emogene Gardner, Mary Lois Hornback, Norma Jean McDonald, Martha Owen and Billie Shahayda.

  • The 4-H poetry contest is being held again this year. The contest is open to all LaRue County youth, ages 9 to 18. Each youth may enter one poem for the competition.

    All poems must be submitted to the LaRue County Extension Service by Feb. 20. Most students have probably already written poems for school. Why not turn your best poem in to be judged? Teachers, you may even wish to require your students to participate in the poetry contest, or give extra credit for those students who participate.
