  • 'Know the real joy of good living'

    “Know the real joy of good living.”

    A beer commercial stated that the way to discover real living was to drink their brand. There are many others who would disagree and say the way to real living is service to others. Jesus would agree with the last statement. He said while on earth, “In as much as you have done it unto one of the least of these, you have done it unto me” (Matthew 25:45). One of our hymns caught the meaning of this verse. It is titled simply, “Others.”

He has added Harley Davidson motorcycles to the mix of used cars and trucks.

  • Sheriff’s injury prevents attendance at forum

    The April 13 forum for LaRue County Sheriff candidates gave two of the three contenders a chance to speak before an audience of about 100 at the LaRue County Courthouse.

    Incumbent Sheriff Bobby Shoffner, a Democrat, was unable to attend as he sustained an on-the-job injury earlier in the day.

  • Next block watch organizational meeting is tonight

    A handful of residents attended a block watch organizational meeting April 5.

    But the low attendance didn’t discourage organizers who plan a second meeting Monday, April 26. The meeting, like the first one, will be at 7 p.m. at Hodgenville City Hall.

    Guest speaker Bryce Shumate, media relations officer for Radcliff City Police, said block watches have been successful in reducing vandalism, break-ins and thefts across the country. Crime rates have been lowered as much as 50 percent in communities sporting a “You are being watched” sign.
