  • Seventh Seal is a prelude to the seven trumpets

    Seventh Seal: Prelude to the seven trumpets (Revelation 8:1-6)

    The trumpets announce severe judgment in response to the prayers of the saints. Trumpets are a warning signal and a call for mankind to repent of their sins. The plagues released by the blowing of the trumpets are similar to the plagues of Egypt (Exodus 7:17-21; 9:21-25; 10:21-23).

    The first four affect the natural world and the last three affect the unsaved. Some people believe these calamities are symbolic and not literal. They are seen as repetitive throughout history and intensifying as the age closes.

  • Speak the truth in love

    The desire of every Christian should be to please our heavenly father by our deeds, words and attitudes. James shows us ways the Christian can please God.  The book of James is a manual on the Christian life.

    God’s will for every Christian is that we grow spiritually. The writer of Hebrews challenges us, “… let us … go on to maturity” (6:1). God wants us to be like his son. As Christians our standard for measuring our growth is not another Christian, but the word of God.

  • Clemons named to All-Tournament Team

    The LaRue County Hawks varsity baseball season came to an abrupt end in the first round of the 5th Region Tournament against Washington County 5-3.

    The Hawks defeated the Commanders in the regular season 14-2 in five innings. 

    “It was a tough way to end a good year. It’s tough playing a team you run-ruled earlier in the year. We became complacent after the early lead. The mental edge just wasn’t there. We hit entirely too many pop-ups and fly balls,” said Coach Chris Price.

  • School board updated on hybrid bus, KOSSA

    Melissa Howell with the Kentucky Clean Fuels Coalition was on hand at the May 24 school board meeting to discuss the new hybrid school bus coming to LaRue County in August.

    Howell said 22 districts across Kentucky would receive the buses, which still will operate with a diesel engine but also utilize a battery pack.

    She said the bus would average 12.5 miles per gallon versus 7.5 mpg in a non-hybrid bus.

    The bus is scheduled to be delivered in August.

    “Kentucky will have the largest hybrid bus fleet in the nation,” Howell said.
