  • Painted rocks are a statement of faith

    Anyone who passes by the yellow frame house across from the LaRue County Courthouse in Hodgenville will immediately notice two unusual things: lighted candles in each of the windows, and painted rocks, small, big, yellow, green, solid colors, mixed colors, polka dots – encircling the house’s foundation.

    “Those rocks and candles are a statement of our faith,” said Geri Stanley, whose daughter Jessi, has painted almost all of them. “The lights will remain on and the rocks here until our daughter is healed.”

  • Family dealing with stream of sewer backups

    Friday’s sunny weather should have provided Jesse Ray and Kathy Sams a perfect opportunity to spend a few hours in their backyard, picking up limbs and raking debris. It’s one of the prettiest spots in Hodgenville, Kathy said, with plenty of shade trees, shrubs, a dry creek, wooden footbridge and an old rock wall.

    Instead, the couple spent most of the day indoors – disgusted by the sight and smell of sludge pouring into their yard from an overflowing sewer pipe. They believe the dirty water is coming from at least three houses in the neighborhood.
