  • Big changes - Hodgenville 200 book

    As progress and time race along at break-neck-speed it’s easy to forget it wasn’t too long ago things looked very different in LaRue County. Just in the 1940s, a mere 70 years ago, teams of mules were used to farm. Cane was cut by hand to make molasses and horse drawn wagons were still a common sight. Here you will find some photos that were featured in a Looking Back at LaRue edition from 2001.

    Our deepest sympathy goes to the families of Carl Pope who lost his brother in Atlanta and to David Jackson who lost his daughter both during last week.

    Let’s continue in prayer for the families that have lost loved ones due to various acts of violence, injuries, or sickness.

    Thought for the week: “It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.”

    Kentucky Wildcats advanced to the Elite 8, played North Carolina last Saturday and lost by 2 points. They had a great season and I am still a true blue fan. I sure will miss talking about the games on Facebook. We will have to choose who to cheer for in the Final Four and talk about those games.

    Congratulations to Robin Brussels on being chosen March Employee of the Month for Nationwide Uniform.

    Thought for the week: When life seems difficult, follow the P.U.S.H acronym. Pray, Until, Something, Happens.

    Last Saturday, we attended the 90th birthday celebration of my Aunt Beulah LaFollette Jackson. It was a good turnout and I enjoyed seeing 10 out of 21 cousins.

    Woo Hoo Kentucky Wildcats advanced to Sweet 16!!! They will be playing UCLA on Friday night. Sure is sad that DISH customers haven’t been able to see the ballgames due to WLKY removing channel 32 the first of the month.
