  • Cool, country air can lift the lowest spirits

    My husband and I have recently taken a leap of faith; we bought our first home.

    Along with the struggles of moving, we also are making repairs, going to college, working and parenting a 3-year-old. In all of this mess, it is often times easy to forget how blessed we are.

  • Always include God in your plans

    Americans are a forward-looking people. Many are obsessed with and seek to forecast the future. The Apostle James in 4:13-17 says you can make three mistakes as you look to tomorrow.

    One point must be made before we go further – the Bible is not against planning. Proverbs says if I don’t plan, I am a fool. James pictures two men making plans, but their mistake was leaving God out (4:13). It is great to plan as long as you include God.

    Planning without prayer is pre sumptuous. All planning should be prefaced with “if the Lord wills” (4:15).

    Police aren’t sure how many batches of methamphetamine have been brewed at the local recycling center. But Monday, four one-step labs were discovered in the dumpster outside Renaissance Recycling on East Water Street and components for the illegal drug were found inside the building.

    Work release inmates from the LaRue County Detention Center and county employees are being questioned about the drugs by several police agencies.

  • School board sets tax rate

    LaRue County property owners will receive a break on school taxes next year.

    At the Aug. 16 board meeting, Superintendent Sam Sanders recommended the board take the compensating rate which could be levied without a hearing or recall (KRS 160.470). The compensating rate, when applied to current year’s property assessment, produces an amount of revenue equal to that produced in the preceding year.
