Today's Features

  • Thought for the week: Life is like baking a pie. Everything you put into it determines what it will be.

    This time change is for the birds. It’s bad enough I was always tired before the time change and now that it gets dark at 6 p.m., it just makes it even worse.

    Thinking of you wishes go out to Billy Sallee, Ann Stankovic, Priscilla Brown, Harlis and Bessie LaFollette.

    Sympathy wishes go out to families of Clifford Horn, Jr, Vicki Huff, Margaret Yuma, Janet Marcum, Joseph Patrick Clark, Debbie Howe, Russell Black and Troy Weathers.

  • Congratulations to the LaRue County Football Team. Good luck Friday night against Caldwell County in the playoffs.

    Our deepest sympathy goes to the families of Margaret Lou Handley, formerly of Hodgenville. She passed away last Tuesday in Louisville. Robert Henry “Jimmy” Handley, Kevin Hill and Troy Weathers passed away Sunday evening. Our hearts also go out to the families and the community of Texas.

  • A couple of years ago I planted squash in my garden. The squash plant itself grew and majored into a large plant with nice deep greenery. The plants appeared to be healthy and ready to produce a great number of squash. Unfortunately, though the leaves seemed perfect and beautiful, the plants would not produce fruit. As a result, the plants existed for no purpose other than to set off an external appearance.

  • My wife and I have been able to visit some beautiful gardens. Butchart Gardens in British Columbia would probably be my favorite, but Bellingrath Gardens in Alabama would be a close second. Some of the English gardens are quite different and the Schonbrunn Palace gardens in Vienna are nice.

    Recently, I was preparing a message that dealt with Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane and was reading Warren Weirsbe Bible Commentary. Having been able to visit the garden in the 70s made my reading more meaningful. There was a statement made in Luke 21:37 that caught my attention.
