    The big question of life is – who am I and why am I here?  
    Let’s use a New Testament character in answering this question. Zacchaeus was a wealthy and successful businessman who held a powerful position in Roman-occupied Israel. Today we would call him an IRS agent.

  • New Haven ambulance station to move

    New Haven will be getting a new location for its Nelson County EMS station.

    Last week, after hearing EMS Director Joe Prewitt’s report on the EMS Committee meeting held earlier that morning, the Nelson County Fiscal Court authorized County Judge-Executive Dean Watts to enter into a lease agreement with property owner Keith Carter for a building on the north side of town.

    Prewitt said the new ambulance service facility will be north of the stop light on New Haven Road inside the city limits.

  • FISCAL COURT: County orders 196 tons of salt

    LaRue County ambulance runs are up 129 transits since last year and almost 500 more than two years ago, Mike Cottrell, emergency medical services director, told magistrates meeting at the courthouse in Hodgenville Jan. 28.

    The local service showed 193 runs in December, bringing 2014’s total to 1,963 compared to 1,834 in 2012 and 1,453 in 2011.

    “Our service has been working very closely with Sunrise Manor and other medical providers in the county, which accounts in part for the increase,” said Tommy Turner, LaRue County judge-executive.

    This weekend, Pritchard Community Center will look more like 1814 than 2014.

    For 17 years, the Bucksnort Longhunters have presented an 18th Century Market Fair.

    The event brings those with interest from as far away as St. Louis, organizer and club member Danny Hill said.

    At the market, patrons can purchase items made in the same way they were in the 1800s, Hill said.

    Tanned leather, hides, blacksmith wares, clothing and many other items representing Kentucky’s frontier days will be for sale, he said.
