  • Hodgenville News - November 8, 2017

    Thought for the week: Life is like baking a pie. Everything you put into it determines what it will be.

    This time change is for the birds. It’s bad enough I was always tired before the time change and now that it gets dark at 6 p.m., it just makes it even worse.

    Thinking of you wishes go out to Billy Sallee, Ann Stankovic, Priscilla Brown, Harlis and Bessie LaFollette.

    Sympathy wishes go out to families of Clifford Horn, Jr, Vicki Huff, Margaret Yuma, Janet Marcum, Joseph Patrick Clark, Debbie Howe, Russell Black and Troy Weathers.

    Congratulations to the LaRue County Football Team. Good luck Friday night against Caldwell County in the playoffs.

    Our deepest sympathy goes to the families of Margaret Lou Handley, formerly of Hodgenville. She passed away last Tuesday in Louisville. Robert Henry “Jimmy” Handley, Kevin Hill and Troy Weathers passed away Sunday evening. Our hearts also go out to the families and the community of Texas.

  • Fallback plan

    Autumn has always been my favorite season; for me, the best part of fall in Kentucky is that it’s not summer. Nothing against sunshine, but I really love wearing sweaters and all the things this season brings like football and hot tea, glowing pumpkins and long runs through crunchy leaves.

    Another great part of autumn is the onset of the holidays and after Halloween here, I’m excited for more. Louisville had the most amazing Jack O’ Lanterns and Hodgenville had some fantastic costumes. (Check out the winners and pictures on page 22A and 23A, by the way.)

  • Not Mere Leaves

    A couple of years ago I planted squash in my garden. The squash plant itself grew and majored into a large plant with nice deep greenery. The plants appeared to be healthy and ready to produce a great number of squash. Unfortunately, though the leaves seemed perfect and beautiful, the plants would not produce fruit. As a result, the plants existed for no purpose other than to set off an external appearance.
