  • No one understands like Jesus

    It is interesting to note in the gospels the blending of the humanity and divinity of Jesus. Jesus was in a boat with the disciples. Weary, he fell asleep. A storm caused the disciples to wake him asking, “Master, don’t you care that we perish?” Jesus rose and said, “Peace be still!” The waters obeyed his command. You can see his humanity in his tiredness and you see his divinity as the waves obey his command. The humanity and divinity of Jesus is apparent from the beginning of his ministry.

  • Document provides glimpse into county’s history

    Baseball cards, stamps, coins and even rocks have helped create extensive collections for many people. However, there are few collections that can be truly meaningful for an entire community like the recent find by Carl Howell, Hodgenville attorney and Lincoln historian.

    Howell’s grandfather built the Nancy Lincoln Inn near the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Park and helped him develop his love for history, specifically for Abraham Lincoln. Now, he excitedly shares the news of his latest discovery with hopes that it will inspire interest and further research.

  • Meet Charlemagne, the Christian Emperor

    In 742 on a cold, blistering winter day, King Pepin III (Pepin the Short) was expecting a child. The child was named Carolus Magnus, also known as Charlemagne. Charlemagne didn’t receive proper education as a child. His childhood was overtaken by the laborious task of the activities of preparing himself to control his father’s lands.

  • Funeral home under new management

    A Hodgenville funeral home is under new management after the retirement of a long-time employee.

    Billy Howell, director of Billy Howell Funeral Chapel on Lincoln Boulevard, retired in October after an extended illness. He now is living with relatives.

    Rondal Wright, who has owned the funeral home nine years, began looking for a new manager. He turned to Ron Rust, a Lyons Station native who owned funeral homes in New Haven and Boston and is a close friend of Howell.

  • Local man's album centers on relationships

    Most of us contemplate what God is thinking when he allows bizarre or terrible things to happen in our lives. Why does such a loving God allow homes, relationships and even families to be broken? 

    Rusty Wilson, youth minister at Union Christian Church, addresses those questions in his upcoming album titled, “I’ll make It Heaven.” This Christian centered, 11-track album talks about relationships – friendships, romantic relationships, families and ultimately our relationship with Christ.

  • Sunrise quarantine may lift this week

    H1N1 is the virus everyone’s been talking about this flu season.

    Sunrise Manor Nursing Home is under quarantine – absolutely no visitors – as it tries to eradicate the virus, said administrator Daphne Loyall.

  • Down a slippery slope

    LaRue County was blanketed with about four inches of snow over the weekend. It began falling about 5 p.m. Friday and snowed through the night. The snow was powdery and drifted as high as six feet deep in some sections.

    Rising temperatures Saturday afternoon helped road crews get a handle on the situation.

    State, county and city snowplows were out in full force. Major roadways were cleared first, with both lanes of Lincoln Parkway and Bardstown Road cleared by 1 p.m.

    Sunday morning, Campbellsville Road still had a few slick spots.

  • Skipping breakfast is a big mistake

    Skipping breakfast can spell disaster. A study that randomly assigned overweight people to a weight program found that those who consumed breakfast lost significantly more weight over a 12-week program. This could be because those who skip breakfast tend to select more calorie-dense foods later in the day, than those who regularly eat breakfast. A healthy breakfast is the one meal that people should be encouraged to eat even if they are not hungry.
