  • Mystery of seven stars discussed

    Revelation 1:20: The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.

    There are four important rules to follow when interpreting scripture:

    1. What is the context subject?

    2. Who is talking?

    3. Who is being addressed?

    4. Does it harmonize with all other scripture?

  • Youth baseball field improvements appreciated

    On behalf of LaRue County Youth Baseball, I would like to thank the numerous individuals who spent March 19-20 resurfacing the minor league field at the park.

    I also would like to thank the local organizations, businesses and people who provided the equipment needed to resurface the field – Baker Concrete Construction, Boyd’s Landscaping, Otis and Rosemary Meredith, LaRue County Judge-Executive Tommy Turner and Tim Brown.

    This resurfacing has created a safer field for future minor league players.

  • Please slow down

    Could you kindly do me a favor and ask folks that are dropping off and picking up their kids at the old elementary school, that now serves as a daycare, to please slow down. This also includes coming up the hill, but especially out of the parking lot. There have been numerous close calls. There is also a three-way stop sign at the top of the hill, which should mean people need to stop, not touch and go like some fighter pilot.

  • Support for LOL

    My name is Bethany Blair and I am 7 years old. I attend Hodgenville Elementary.

    I want to ask for your support for Laptops of LaRue. I think LaRue High Schoolers should have laptops because that’s where I learn everything. You can do your homework on Notepad. If you are stuck on a word you can look it up on the dictionary. And they can take it anywhere. They can take it on a family trip.

    They can learn more from it than you can teach. I can look up anything on it. So that is why I think high schoolers of LaRue should have laptops so they can learn more.

  • Pork Producers search for missing grill

    The LaRue County Pork Producers loaned one of its grills to a local church in February.

    The grill, valued at $1,500, has not been returned to the group, and unfortunately, the contact information has been misplaced.

    With the return of warm weather, the group is anxious to start holding community cooks again. The grill is an important part of their fundraising efforts.

    If you have any information about the grill’s whereabouts, call Bill Goatley at 766-2728.

  • Relay for Life: Bessie Miller's story of survival

    The LaRue County Relay for Life is May 14 at Hodgenville Elementary School. This is the first of a series of cancer survivor stories to bring awareness to this cause.

    I am fighting cancer. My story is not unique but I wish to share it in the hope that I can make a difference in the life of someone else. I have found during the last four years since I was first diagnosed with cancer that no one is immune to this disease. I have seen people of all ages fighting to beat cancer and be numbered among those who can say they are “cancer survivors.”

  • Late spring is a good time to control thistles in pasture

    Most farmers don’t think much about thistles until they see the plants begin to send up a stalk and then a seed head in late spring. However, now is a good time to inspect pastures for the rosette stage of the plant and take action if needed.

    Thistles are one of the most troublesome weed problems in pastures and hayfields. Thistle plants can interfere with grazing, limit forage availability and become a major problem for hay production.
