  • Confessions of a cheapskate: Grace isn’t free

    I love free stuff.

    When we lived in California we lived near scads of big- box warehouse stores that always gave away free samples. Sometimes, if you got there on the right day at the right time, you could eat enough free samples and be too full to eat lunch or dinner when you got home.

    I wasn’t thinking of free stuff a few Sundays ago when I stopped at a little Pentecostal church I had never visited before, even though I’ve talked to the pastor many times.

    And what to my wondering eyes should appear? Free goodies and coffee!

  • Rollin pleads guity, sentenced

    Timothy A. Rollin of Hodgenville pleaded guilty June 1 in the LaRue Circuit Court to amended charges and other charges against him. The pleas from two separate cases stem from events that occurred in 2014 involving a minor in Meade County and events of December 2014 at the LaRue County Detention Center. Since Rollin waived a pre-sentencing investigation, two final judgments of conviction were signed by LaRue Circuit Court Judge John David Seay, June 1.

  • Hangin’ out at hoops camp
  • Gleanings and leanings

    By Bobbi Lanham

    When I drive down the road, I am always looking over the fields and roadsides for gleanings. I find a lot of produce, herbs and possibilities that way. I dug asparagus out of my cousin’s fencerow. I collected popcorn out of a field after the combine went through.

  • Committed to community

    Words cannot express how excited I am to be the editor of the LaRue County Herald News.

    I was born and raised in Rockcastle County and had lived there my entire life. I worked as the news editor of the county newspaper, the Mount Vernon Signal, for more than three years.

    As many of you know from your own experiences, it can be scary and difficult to leave your hometown for a different job, to go to college, etc. However, this was not the case for me when I left Rockcastle County to become the editor of the LaRue County Herald.
