  • 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.
