  • Lane Lincoln teens tutor younger students

     Several young members of Lane Lincoln CME Church in Hodgenville are following the Golden Rule through offering free academic tutoring.

    “I’ve always wanted to help others the way I would like to be helped,” said LaRue County High School senior Christian Pope, who with seniors Shaila Winston, Sheridan Myers and junior Misha Jakes are tutoring LaRue County students each Wednesday from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the church.

  • COLUMN: Simple rules to live by

     But be very careful to keep the commandments and the law that Moses, the servant of the Lord gave you: to love the Lord your God; to walk in all his ways; to obey his commands; to hold fast to him; and to serve him with all your heart and all your soul. Joshua 22:5

    This verse gives us clear guidelines or specific actions for a Christian lifestyle:

  • COLUMN: Trust God, reduce worry

     Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear ... Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Matthew 6:25a, 27

    I try not to worry ... I really do. I try to turn all potential worries over to the Lord, because I know that he can handle them, he sees the big picture and he wants what's best for me. 

    But … we all can't help but be concerned about certain things that come into our lives.

  • Road work planned in Lyons Station

     The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has awarded nearly $41 million in contracts for projects to repave, rehabilitate and repair roads across the Commonwealth.

    Most are for state routes, but they include repairs for interstate highways in Jefferson, Carroll, Gallatin and Livingston counties.

    LaRue County will receive $200,082 for a section of Lyons Station Road (KY 52) near the Nelson County line. Scotty’s Contracting and Stone LLC will do the work.

  • COLUMN: Our mission is to 'go and tell' the gospel

     Richard Sharp said, “We can never turn the world upside down until we’ve turned the church inside out.”

    The people observed the early church in the book of Acts and said, "These men who have upset the world have come here also" (17:6). The early church had just a handful of people, no buildings and no budget, nothing except a zeal for the Lord. How did they turn the world upside down? Because they turned the church inside out.

  • COLUMN: Believe and obey the gospel

     A preacher once said, “My people believe the Gospel, but many of them don’t behave the Gospel.”

    Admiring truth is not enough. Doctrine and duty ought to go side by side. Belief and behavior should never be separated. Our lives must match our profession if we are to make an impression upon a lost world in our day.

    Every great doctrine of the Bible makes a practical demand upon our lives. If we say we believe the doctrines, then we need to obey them. Consider a few doctrines and the demands they bring with them.

  • ON EDUCATING LARUE: K-PREP assessments arrive this month

     When K-PREP (statewide assessment) reports arrive later this month, the school report card will be available online while LaRue County’s schools will send hard copies of individual student reports home.

    The one-page (front and back) student report not only will show the level of the student’s performance (novice, apprentice, proficient, and distinguished) but also will reveal how the student’s scores on the academic subjects compare with school, district and state average scores.
