  • David Vice, a volunteer with CASA of the Heartland, made a presentation earlier this month to Hodgenville City Council.

    CASA – or court appointed special advocates – is headquartered in Hardin County and is actively seeking volunteers.

    CASA volunteers “advocate for children caught up in the court system” usually in cases of neglect or abuse. Many of the children are in foster care and are seen by several social workers.

    I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas holiday. Many traveled from afar to visit and bring gifts to their loved ones. There were many dinners, and other events that made this holiday an enjoyable happy season.

    Arneva Smith and Dolivinia Watson were admitted to Hardin Memorial Hospital last week and released. Arneva was admitted Sunday afternoon. She’s in room 220.

    Sunday morning was youth day at Lane Lincoln.

    To each and everyone, have a safe and happy New Year.

  • The congregation of South Fork Baptist Church has reason to celebrate as 2015 rolls around: their church is completely debt free.

    According to pastor Jonathan Carl, the church’s debt has been decreased by more than $259,000 in 2014 alone.

    He said a lot of people “stepped up” to give in order to pay down the church’s debt.

  • Christmas is over. The tree may still be up, but no gifts are underneath. The visiting family members are back home. Life is back to normal.

    Consider Mary and Joseph – the long trip, no room when they reached their destination, the birth of the baby, the excitement of the angel choir and the visit of the shepherds. There must have been let down for them. Nothing would ever be the same again.

  • Christmas is past, but many of you may still want to look up your favorite, time-honored movie or books, and check them out at the LaRue County Public Library. Whether it is How the Grinch Stole Christmas, A Christmas Carol or Little Women, each one is made available for your enjoyment through the work of our technical services librarian, Sarah Graff.

    Sarah contributes to the library in multiple ways.
