  • Have you ever faced a moment in life that left you pondering the future? A time when you were confused about what lied ahead or what obstacles might be awaiting your journey? Have you ever met the moment when the feeling of overwhelmed dominated your life? I am sure that these questions probably sparked a moment or two in your life. How did you face those times?

  • Recently the devotion said that trouble will come.  I’m thankful for the positive response by some readers and want to add some additional thoughts on the subject for handling trouble.  How we respond to things that come into our lives is very important. Our response will reveal our character.  We can be all smiles in the sunshine, but the dark days and times of trouble reveals our true inner self. Will we weather the storms because we have done a good job in building on the proper foundation and used good material in construction?

  • Parkway Baptist Church in Hodgenville will hold its first service in their new sanctuary this Sunday, September 11.

    Pastor DeWayne Gibson said the current church building was built in November 1991 and that their membership has outgrown their old sanctuary. He said they started building the current sanctuary in September 2015 and they competed it almost a year later.

  • Eric Garrett, Chairman of the Board of Magnolia Bank has announced the employment of Scott T. Conway as Chief Executive Officer of Magnolia Bank, effective immediately.

    Conway received his undergraduate degree in finance and marketing from Georgetown College and Masters in Business Administration from Bellarmine University.

  • Thought for the week: The best way to be happy is to turn the negative into positive. Don’t let anyone steal your joy and be thankful for what you have.

    I’m having big email issues and that is why I haven’t had a Hodgenville News column or Cooking Corner in recently. It says it was sent, but I don’t find out till past the deadline that it is stuck out in space somewhere. That’s my story and I am sticking to it.

    Congratulations to Larry and Vicki Curry on their 40th anniversary on August 13th.
