  • CANCER SURVIVOR'S STORY: Carol Routt relied on family and friends during her bout with breast cancer

    The second of several stories about local cancer survivors.
    In the summer of 1998 Carol Routt was enjoying her life with her husband Ray and two teenage children Charaye and Heath. Her large extended family and friends were very much a part of her life but she would not know how much she would come to depend on them until later that summer.
    Carol found a small lump in her breast during a monthly self-exam. So not only was school scheduled to begin the first of August for this loyal Hodgenville Elementary School instructional assistant, but so was a mammogram.

  • TOUCHPOINTS: Discipline your spiritual self to experience God's joy

    I Corinthians 9:24-27 says, “Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may win. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:
    But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be rejected.”

  • COLUMN: He wanted his driver's license for his 16th birthday ... but got a column instead

    My little brown dog Monroe is celebrating his 16th birthday this month.
    That makes him something like 100 in human years.
    He’s had several health issues lately but in many ways, he’s still the same rescue pup the kids and I picked out those many years ago. Back then, he was a quiet, intelligent little creature with big soulful brown eyes. If we had to get a pup – and the kids were insistent – he was just the one I wanted.

    Lindsey, along with Rooney Gray, owner of MAM Candy, is planning an alternate evening for prom-goers that includes a meal by candlelight, photography session and horse-drawn carriage ride – all at MAM in downtown Hodgenville.
