  • Need a friend? Try one who will never leave you

    Loneliness is no respecter of persons. People may turn to drink, lose their sanity, and commit suicide because of the despair of loneliness. How many lonely people there are today!

    God did not create man to live in miserable inner loneliness. Jesus came to restore fellowship between man and God, and to take away human loneliness. Jesus Christ will take away loneliness from your soul. He will be your companion and friend.

  • Commitment, surrender, obedience

    The answer to a richer, fuller life is in Jesus. This kind of life comes about as a result of a continual relationship with him through commitment, surrender and obedience.

    Paul mentions three simple acts in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 that will promote a fuller life. First, Paul says, “Be joyful always.” This joy must be found in the Lord.

    Some seek their joy in toys, trinkets and treasures of this life, but these are temporary and do not last. True joy comes from our relationship with the Lord.

  • Lincoln Museum plans community trip to Gettysburg

  • Rex Hanson looks back on LaRue career

    One of LaRue County High School’s key faculty members has accepted a position outside the district.

    Rex Hanson, senior class sponsor and Math Department chairman, will teach dual credit college algebra and algebra 2 at John Hardin High School this fall.

    “I am leaving because I felt it was time for a change,” said Hanson. “There will be new experiences and opportunities in Hardin County to which I am looking forward. There are also some benefits of having my children attend school where they are districted.”

  • Just Ask -July 24, 2013

    At the end of the school year, Hodgenville Elementary School parents received a paper to vote  whether we wanted to buy our children school supplies or give the teacher $20 per child and have the teacher purchase the supplies. What happened to that idea?

    I received my children’s list in the mail and one of my kids needs 48 pencils. I find it hard to believe that any child can use 48 pencils in a school year. Did the $20 idea get voted down, or was it just not possible?

    HES Principal Sue Osborne responded:

  • Walk a mile in strange shoes

    A couple weeks ago I attended the community forum (in Nelson County) on the proposed natural gas pipeline coming through Kentucky. For the record, on what I have heard and studied, I am opposed to this project and hope it doesn’t happen, but as a realist, I know it will happen anyway because big business and big money rule the world. But that’s another story.
