  • Hodgenville News - January 17, 2018

    Thought for the week: Don’t ruin a good today by thinking about a bad yesterday. Let it go.

    These cold temperatures can move on out and stay gone. My wishes came true for a couple of days, as temperatures stayed in the 60s, but then it was back to freezing temperatures, snow and ice. I am not a happy camper.

    A big hello goes out to John and Carolyn Hornback. Congratulations to Mr. Andy Arendt for winning the 2018 LaRue County ExCEL Teacher of the Year award.

  • Time to register for 4-H summer camp

    It’s time to register youth for 4-H summer camp, one of Kentucky’s long-standing and great values. 4-H camps offer unique experiences each year to children of many ethnicities, backgrounds, and situations who get to participate in traditional 4-H activities during their week-long stay.

    The activities include low and high ropes, canoeing, archery, swimming, nature hikes, arts and crafts, sports, games and more. 4-H camps run from the end of May through early August.  LaRue County will be attending camp from May 29 through June 1. 

  • Living with compassion

    Compassion is hard. So many times, we attempt to justify our merciless actions of indifference by looking at the life of another individual through a fleshly lens of value. As a result, we ignore true needs of those around us and justify our self-righteous activities. This approach to life comes naturally because it is motivated and led by the self-centered nature of the flesh.

  • We will serve the Lord

    Last week I referred to the experience of the children of Israel as they were about to enter the Promised Land.  In Joshua 24:14-18 they are given a choice --- whether to serve God or not.  We spoke of the temptations that they had to face then and that we have to face today.

    They would have testings in the new land.  It would not be easy for them in the new land.  Would they hold on to God when trouble came?  They like their forefathers had to decide if they would stay close to God when the battles came.

  • Trumbo wins DYW talent award
  • Get your bread and milk

    I’m glad to see we all made it through Winter Storm Hunter. One of my pet peeves is when they started naming winter storms.

    It’s ridiculous to me that everything gets branded Winter Storm ______ (fill in the blank.) However, I think that is just one of the many signs of this crazy nutso world we live in today.

    I did a little research and found out that The Weather Channel and other media outlets made naming winter storms popular in 2012 with Winter Storm Athena. Since then, they began branding winter storms on every one of their broadcasts.

  • Let’s talk about the new year

    Happy New Year! Oh wait, it’s January 17. Where did those 17 days go? I need to hurry up on all those ‘things that I want to do this year’.
