  • Guys Read Program Kick off coming

    By Sheree Priddy


    As I’ve begun to put together our Guys Read book club and started digging further into the topic, I have discovered multiple websites and books dedicated to the topic of boys and reading. There is a website called ‘Boys Rock, Boys Read’ where two men blog about books for boys. Besides GuysRead.com, there is also a boysread.org website. All of these are dedicated to promoting books that will be more in line with the topics and tastes of young males.

  • A busy summer at the Chamber

    By Krista Levee

    The LaRue County Chamber of Commerce again this year participated in the Pride of the Counties booth at the Kentucky State Fair. We want to thank everyone who visited and volunteered during the 10 day event. It is a huge undertaking and it would not be possible without the continuous support from our chamber members and community volunteers.

  • ‘That’s good stuff, Harry’

    I’ve mentioned my friend Harry before. He is 86ish and used to golf every day, but one day several years ago he decided he’d had enough and hung up his clubs, or whatever it is you do when you stop golfing.

    Harry and his wife, Charlotte, have sat behind me in church for as long as I can remember.

    When we built the sanctuary 12 years ago, Harry and Charlotte scoped the place out and chose their spot on the second row, second section on the left, Saturday night service.

    I chose my spot on the first row, right in front of Harry.

  • Blessed to Bless

    If you ask a child, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”, their answer could change a number of times a day. How would you answer the question, “What are you to become?” Let’s think of how a believer in Jesus would or should answer.

    A believer in Jesus Christ should be a transmitter of grace. Ephesians 4:7 says, “each of us was given grace.”  This is huge.  To receive God’s grace is the greatest thing that can happen to us.  God gives us an ample supply and His grace never runs out.

  • The LaRue County Herald News is “FOCUSED”  on this year’s photo contest.

    We are excited to announce this year’s LaRue County Herald News Photo Contest. This year’s theme is “FOCUSED”, and we are excited for our readers to submit their photos.

    In order to judge the photos equally, again this year, we will only accept digital images. Scanned photos do not have the quality of digital – and we want to be fair to everyone.

    All entries should be emailed to Vanessa at reporter@laruecountyherald.com. or you can bring digital photos on a CD, SD card, or thumb drive to our office at 40 Shawnee Drive, Hodgenville.
