  • As I drove throughout the county with my mother Mary Smith and aunt Arneva Smith, I visited Mount Salem Baptist Church during their annual homecoming services on July 10. The church is located near three county lines, LaRue, Hart and Green Counties.

    When we arrived on the church grounds we were greeted with smiles, handshakes and hugs from the congregation. Mount Salem is a small community that consist of friendly people that demonstrated love, compassion and fellowship.

  • It has been a busy summer at the LaRue County Chamber of Commerce. We thank everyone who visited and volunteered at our booth at the Kentucky State Fair. It is a huge undertaking and would not be possible without the continuous support from our chamber members and community volunteers.

    We also thank our Lincoln sponsors: Fort Knox Federal Credit Union, LaRue-Carey Insurance Group and Blazin Xpressions. Our Lincoln presenters included: Mr. Jim Sayre and Mr. Larry Elliott as Abraham Lincoln and Mrs. Mary Elliott as Mary Todd Lincoln.

  • By Jonathan Carl
    Guest Columnist

    Have you ever felt like nothing can seem to go right in your life? Like everything is just working against you that particular day, week, month or year? Like you were cursed, doomed, or without hope? Sometimes our intuition is more accurate than we realize.

    We are all cursed. That sounds pretty negative. But it is the default reality for all of humanity. Death is inevitable. Judgment is sure. Guilt is evident.

  • We have a wonderful spiritual position as believers in Christ that Paul simply describes as being “in Christ”.  In the past our sins have been forgiven.  Presently, we have a daily companion in the Holy Spirit.  And in the future we have an eternal home in heaven.  Can you think of a better spiritual position for the Christian other than being at home with the Savior?
