  • “If anything is excellent of praiseworthy – think about such things” Philippians 4:8

    You don’t have more problems than other people – you just think about them more often.

    Stop: go back and reread that sentence. Take a moment and consider what it means. It’s what you think about that produces how you feel. If you don’t believe that, try getting angry without first having angry thoughts or getting sad without first having sad thoughts. You can’t do it, can you?

  • A young paralyzed boy had surgery and after some weeks of therapy was able to walk. As he was being dismissed from the hospital, he said to his surgeon, “Doctor, as long as there is a tongue in my body, ain’t nobody going to hear the last of what you did for me.”

    Can you identify with that young boy? When you think of what Jesus Christ has done for you, can you stop sharing the good news with others? Every time you think of what he has done, don’t you want to tell others? 

  • This summer’s wet, mild weather made the perfect conditions for late blight in tomato plants.

    Late blight on tomatoes was found in LaRue and Laurel counties and could be more widespread, according to University of Kentucky College of Agriculture. The disease causes leaves to wither quickly and die. It can affect the whole plant or begin at the top or bottom and spread.

    LaRue County Extension Agent David Harrison said the infected plants were found on Old Sonora Road.

  • A fairly significant outbreak of blue mold has been found in several fields east of LaRue County in Clark, Montgomery and Fleming counties. The disease appeared to have started in early July. The incidence and severity of blue mold was quite high. Actively sporulating lesions were abundant, making this a strong source for blue mold to spread.
