  • COLUMN: Jesus -- The greatest Valentine

     The words “I love you”engraved on a red valentine can send our hearts racing with joy when received from someone special. Candy, flowers, cards, teddy bears - all send the message of love to those we cherish on Valentine’s Day.

    Recently, I came across a scrapbook of Valentine cards I had received as a small child. They had been special to me then and they were heartwarming to read many years later.

  • COLUMN: Beware of fees with a tax refund advance

     Many tax preparers advertise immediate money through tax refund advance services. However, these may not be the best idea for many. A fee is usually assessed in exchange for the quick cash.

  • COLUMN: Lincoln's legacy affected agriculture

     Native son Abraham Lincoln's 204th birthday is celebrated this week. Born on a farm here in LaRue County, Lincoln had a significant impact on LaRue County and American agriculture.

    Raised on farms in Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois, young Lincoln obviously did the farm chores of feeding livestock, planting seeds and weeding that all pioneer farm boys did. Even his famous rail splitting abilities were related to clearing the land for farming.
