  • According to Emerson the story of the Prodigal Son was the greatest short story in or outside the Bible.  Many would agree with him.  The parable reveals much — the love of God in picture form, the heart of God, how far one can go from God, the hope for one in the far country and the toll of a life lived apart from God.

  • Rock painting, hunting and hiding have become a popular way for many LaRue Countians to spend their time. In Hodgenville, families can be seen downtown on the Square or at CreekFront Park walking around picking up little painted treasures at just about any point of the day.

    Some of these rocks have made their way all the way to New York and Florida. The LaRue County Library even set up a rock exchange, encouraging participants to bring in their painted rocks in exchange for others.
