  • Teens injured in crash

    Two teens were injured in a single-vehicle collision about 3:20 p.m. Sept. 12 outside Buffalo.

    According to LaRue County Deputy Eric Williamson, 17-year-old Holden Blair was driving a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee south on North L&N Turnpike, when he met a red truck traveling on the wrong side of the road.

    Blair drove the Jeep into a ditch in an attempt to avoid the oncoming truck. The Jeep went into a spin, crossed the roadway and overturned on the opposite side of the roadway.

    The red truck did not stop, according to Williamson.

    In the broadest sense, the population changes Kentucky has seen over the last 50 years have largely fallen in line with the country as a whole.

    We have both become increasingly urban, for example, with Kentucky’s tipping point coming in 1970, when the U.S. Census found for the first time that more than half of our citizens lived in or near a city. Both of us are also witnessing the same graying trend, which is no surprise because of advances in medicine and the growing number of Baby Boomers reaching retirement age.

  • You were saved to serve

    Am I useful or useless in this world? As a Christian, am I doing this thing called the Christian life right? Do I make the most of the moments God gives me?  We can do some stupid things in the service of the Lord.

    When some people criticized the woman for pouring expensive perfume on his head, Jesus said that she did what she could do. That is all God asks of anyone. Fanny Crosby wrote more than 4,000 hymns. On her tombstone are the words, “She did what she could, Mark 14.”
