  • On EDUCATING LARUE: Agencies help families, sponsor activities and clubs

     Providing the best academic instruction and tools is vital if a school wants to prepare students for their best opportunities for success after graduation.

    Important as these things are, however, there’s more to success than academics.  Other barriers exist that don’t deal directly with school subjects, including the need for referrals to health and social services; career exploration and development; summer and part-time job development (high school only); substance abuse education and counseling; and family crisis and mental health counseling.

  • School board approves new teaching position

     The LaRue County School Board approved the creation of a hearing impaired teacher at a special called meeting on Aug. 20.

     Delta Airlines Flight 65 – Atlanta to Los Angeles – Somewhere over Texas.

    A flight attendant moves through the aisle to speak to a co-worker:

    “There is a man from Kentucky sitting in 20-B wearing dirty bib overalls and a stained white T-shirt and muddy work boots. He offered me a watermelon he says he grew himself. What a weirdo!”

  • COLUMN: Lord, help me find patience - right now

     I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope. Psalms 130:5

    This verse gives us two specific instructions: wait for the Lord and put your hope in his word.

    So many times we want to rush ahead of the Lord. We think we know what action to take and how to proceed, but the Bible clearly instructs us to wait for the Lord to work, to instruct and to lead.
