  • Jim Routt: Grillmaster and Carpenter for Christ

    Jim Routt of Sonora worked construction for 35 years. When he retired at 65, he stopped building frames and began building fires for barbecue.

    Along with his barbecue business, Bucksnort Barbeque, he also volunteers with Carpenters for Christ.

    Routt, 68, has lived in Hardin County most of his life. He lived outside the county for 10 years when he served in the U.S. Navy and worked for a telephone company in Florida. In 1969, he moved back to Hardin County and started to work in the construction business.

  • Woman charged on 121 outstanding warrants

    A LaRue County woman, wanted in at least three counties for outstanding warrants, was arrested Oct. 9 at her home in Vine Grove.

    Penny Lou Emerson, 49, formerly of Saint Joachim Road, Hodgenville, was wanted on 112 outstanding LaRue County warrants and nine from other counties, on charges ranging from forgery to theft by unlawful taking to parole violations, according to Deputy Eric Williamson.

  • COLUMN: Circus is for pony lovers

    My husband and I took our daughter to the circus.

    Sounds simple, right? Wrong. From the moment we pulled into the fairgrounds she had her mind made up. She cared nothing about the circus and everything about the pony rides offered outside.

    Screaming at the top of her lungs in excitement she was practically begging to ride the animals.

  • COLUMN: Shopper's confidence takes a hit at gun show

    I am not a great shopper.

    My husband Bud would disagree. But that’s because he is a man and has little concept of what a real shopper is like. He can walk in Wal-Mart, go directly to his favorite jar of peanut butter, pick it up, walk directly to the checkout and be done.

    It’s almost Old Testament in its intensity: “Thou shalt go directly to the Jif. Thou shalt not look to the left, nor to the right, lest thou be tempted.”

    I enjoy looking – and buying when something calls to me. But the looking – that’s key.

  • TOUCHPOINTS: Blessings come from God

    Today we don't hear much talk about blessing others, but in Bible times it was a vital part of their lives. 

    God was recognized as the ultimate source of the blessing and the person blessed would walk with the Lord and receive his benefits. Blessing from God comes to those who trust and obey him. 

    He has given us far more than we can possibly realize. Having a relationship with him, and being able to talk to him is a blessing in itself. Our God is the living God through whom all blessings flow. 

  • Ag event will pair food producers with distributors

    Local farmers, listen up. If you grow it, or maybe want to grow it, they will come. 'They' are food distributors that want and need more local food for their clients.

    Louisville Farm to Table and Washington County Cooperative Extension are teaming up to put food distributors that need locally grown food in the same room as folks in the state that either are or are willing to consider growing it.

    To set the table, a meal of locally grown food will be prepared for those attending the conference.

  • Grumbling and grouching are displeasing to God

    Grumbling!

    We all do it. You name it and we grumble about it. Our favorite subject is the weather. But it is a sin to grumble against God.

    The Apostle Paul told the Philippians Christians to “do all things without grumbling or disputing” (3:14). He was thinking of the children of Israel when they left Egypt on their way to the Promised Land. He said in I Corinthians they grumbled and were destroyed.

    God is displeased when His children grumble. Why?
