  • How do you see Jesus

    By Paul Richey
    Guest Columnist

    The work of Christ on the cross demands a response from individuals. Either one receives the message of the gospel authentically, receives the message in vain, or does nothing more than deny responsibility to receiving the gospel. Unfortunately, the pressures of the world often outweigh the call of the Lord to respond to His grace.

  • Weeping - With or Over?

    There are many beautiful and awe inspiring mountains ... the alps and the rockies among them.  One mountain we recently thought about leading up to Easter was the Mt. of Olives near Jerusalem.  When Jesus made His triumphant entry into Jerusalem, Luke 19:41 tells us, “And when He approached, He saw the city and wept over it.”

  • Plowshares to host mediation event

    Plowshares Farm Center for Education and Spirituality will have a meditation event on Sunday, April 23 from 2 to 4 p.m.

    The event is called “Just Imagine!” and it will feature a communal interfaith walking meditation at Plowshares Farm. According to the news release, those in attendance will join each other in a prayerful walk through the farm, stopping occasionally to “stand in silent reverence of the life surrounding us while sharing dreams and visions of a better world and recommitting our lives to such visions.”

  • I probably shouldn't do it

    Saturday was absolutely beautiful. Had it not been for the thick layer of pollen on everything, it would have been pretty close to perfect. After a quick shopping trip, I stopped at the playground to let the boys run around.

  • The bigger picture

    Last week, it was an honor to be invited and to attend the Campbellsville University media appreciation luncheon.

    Print and broadcast media from around the state were in attendance for the event that took on a global traveling theme around the adventures of the guest speaker, Pulitzer Prize winning photographer Bill Luster. I sat in awe listening to him recant his journeys and seeing the images that could move mountains, and I found myself wondering just how I got here and what difference am I making in this world.

  • How to delete duplicate photos

    For Christmas, my son-in-law gave my wife a MacBook Air laptop. I know, what a guy! Anyway, I got to set it up for her, which meant bringing all her files from Windows to Mac.

    When I say all, she had less than 100 data files, and more that 30,000 photos. Yup, you read the number right. The age of the digital camera in our phones has done nothing to teach us how to manage the massive number of pictures we take.

  • Hodgenville news - April 19, 2017

    Thought for the week: Sometimes we can feel lost and uncertain of the future, but no matter where you are right now, just trust that things will get better. Stay strong-you’ve got this.

    Congratulations to Magnolia Bank on receiving 5 star rating. On Good Friday, I went to the Community Good Friday service at the Civic Center. A great program with great fellowship. It was great to see the community and different churches come together to do the program.

  • Fiscal court discusses animal shelter, old voting machines

    LaRue County Fiscal Court magistrates meeting at the courthouse in Hodgenville April 11 renewed their animal shelter agreement with Hardin County.

    Judge-Executive Tommy Turner said the agreement, which costs $21,000 is the same as in prior years.

    “This has saved the county a tremendous amount of money, plus their shelter met all state requirements in a recent inspection,” he noted. “Anytime we’ve tried to look at doing our own shelter, staffing and overhead was way over $100,000.”
