  • An American Soldier never changes

    Army Major (retired) Chris Cline, the Veterans Day program keynote speaker at LaRue County High School, believes that though times have changed drastically during his 27 years in the military, the role of the American soldier remains basically the same as it did when he entered the service, or even since World War II.

    Cline will be the keynote speaker at the LCHS and LCMS Veterans Day programs on November 11. The LCMS program will begin at 9 a.m. and the LCHS program will start at 1 p.m. Both programs will be in the school’s gymnasiums.

  • More than names on a wall

    Too often the news tells of American servicemen being killed in action somewhere in the world.

    Though any patriotic American regrets that loss of life, those accounts of lives lost frequently fade after a few days or weeks into cold statistics added to a list of KIAs.

    For those who knew them and the family members who loved them, however, those deaths remain a permanent personal loss that leaves a hole that can never be filled and memories which will never be forgotten.

  • Lost in LaRue

    I  had to take a detour to work one day; sure I could have taken several shorter routes, but that’s just not my style. I called the office and told Hazel I was taking this opportunity to get lost. And lost is exactly what happened.

  • Which love do you choose?

    Everyone faces a constant battle of which love will they choose? Though there are many dimensions of love, there are two main loves that we must consider. First, do we choose the love that is self-centric, self-promoting, and based in the flesh or do we choose the love of the heavenly Father which is characterized as unconditional, sacrificial, and holy. The Apostle John speaks to this in 1 John 2:15-17.

  • The Glorious Cross

    Glorious!  I would certainly use this word describing the cross.  And yet, in itself the cross was not glorious.  It was an instrument of torture and shame.  The Jew said:  “Cursed is everyone that hangs on a tree.”  Cicero said, “Far be the cross, not only from the eyes and ears, but even from the thoughts of the Roman citizen.”

  • ...You better have a good moral to the story

    I don’t know very many people who don’t like a good story. One of my favorite music artists, John Prine, once said during a performance of a song “There’s one thing I’ve learned about writing story songs: If you are writing story songs you better have a good ending. And if you don’t have a good ending, you better have a darn good moral to the story.” In his typical humor he then concludes the song, Bottomless Lake, with a moral to the story.

  • Looking to the light while in the dark

    To say these past couple of weeks have been hard... would be a huge understatement.

    There is no need for me to restate the horrible news that has shaken the core of our school system and community. The devastating news has taken a toll on me personally and it’s made it harder for me to focus on my job.

  • Are you having trouble concentrating?

    Do you have so many things to do that you just cannot seem to concentrate on anything?  There are many distractions in our day-to-day lives.  Here are a list of some distractions you may fight and how to deal with them:

    Social Media – If you are always checking for status updates, you may not be able to stay on track. If you feel like you have to check, limit it to only when you have break times at work or at home.
