    The LaRue County High School prom is set for April 16.
    For many teens, a search has already started for the perfect dress or tux, shoes and accessories – perhaps of more importance than the perfect date. Throw in a few necessities like hair and nail appointments and the price can become astronomical.
    Parents want their children to have a memorable event, said Linda Lindsey, owner of My Gal Boutique in Hodgenville, but the bleak economy is making that difficult.

  • COLUMN: Believe and behave the gospel

    A preacher once said, "My people believe the gospel, but many of them don't behave the gospel."
    Admiring truth is not enough. Doctrine and duty ought to go side-by-side. Belief and behavior should never be separated. Our lives must match our profession if we are to make an impression upon a lost world in our day.
    Every great doctrine of the Bible makes a practical demand upon our lives. If we say we believe the doctrines, then we need to obey them.
