  • Clark loves meeting people, sharing blessings

    For some, he is the man who takes your keys and waves you through the metal detector. But for others, Deputy LeRoy Clark of Hodgenville is more than a court security guard. He is a friendly face on good days and bad.

    “I get to meet a lot of people, and I try to have something positive to say to everyone,” Clark said. “It may be the only friendly face they see that day.”

    For the past 10 years, Clark has been working security at the Nelson County Justice Center, and as a bailiff in Drug Court.

  • Lost in LaRue - December 30, 2015

    With the holidays and weather I haven’t been able to get out and adventure around LaRue County like I want to. Seems like one would need a good rain jacket and a pair of waders, maybe even a raft, to go anywhere right now. I’ll get out and take road trips again, the impulse to travel will overtake me and I may randomly have to pack up the kids and just hit the road for a few hours; it’s also a good way to make sure my youngest gets his nap.

  • The long road of adoption leads to a new addition

    We welcomed a child into our family in May.

    Samuel Bedane (B’donny) is the fourth child of my daughter, Amanda Higginbotham and her husband, Adam. He has big brown eyes, just like his three sisters – but it’s due to chance, not heredity.

    Bedane – or “Nonny” as he likes to call himself - is adopted.

    I met my granddaughters very soon after they were born. I learned their personalities, their likes and dislikes - their hearts - as they grew.
