  • Family, friends build Gleanings man a new home

    An old adage says that charity begins at home.
    A group of local volunteers is putting that proverb into action through generous donations of time, money and construction materials.
    They’re building Bruce Brown a new house.
    The Gleanings man lived in a small frame house at the edge of LaRue and Marion County for most of his life. The century-old house was in bad shape, he said, but he had mixed emotions when it was torn down a few weeks ago to make room for the new house.

  • TOUCHPOINTS: Strive for daily victory

    I Corinthians 9:24-27 – “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.”

  • Boy Lincoln Statue slammed by alleged drunken driver

    Police say a Barren County man drove a Ford Taurus through the center of Hodgenville’s Lincoln Square early Sunday, striking both statues of Abraham Lincoln.

    The Boy Lincoln Statue, dedicated in May 2008 as part of the Lincoln Bicentennial Celebration, was knocked from its base and dragged as the car entered the traffic island from U.S. 31-E (East Main Street). The base was dented and the statue, which depicted Lincoln as a child standing with his dog Honey, was severely scratched and scraped.

  • Walking with God is a wonderful experience

    Someone said, “You know it is time to resume walking when you step on a set of talking scales and you hear, 'Come back when you are alone' or 'Please, one at a time.'“ Walking physically is good exercise, but spiritual walking is the best.

    The Bible says, “Enoch walked with God” (Genesis 5:22). Can you imagine what that experience was like? From my study window I see three men who walk early in the morning and I am reminded of Enoch and God.
