    In June, members of Linwood Baptist Church in Magnolia, celebrated “High Attendance Day”.

    The day started at Sunrise Manor nursing home during the morning worship services, where people focused on music from Brother Tim Shockley and Tess Smith (wife of Tony Smith), followed by the morning sermon from Rev. Jerry Wilkinson. Following the service, several residents, along with friends, family and staff members made the trip to Linwood Baptist for the “High Attendance Day.”

  • Pows and wows!

     I don’t know why God does what he does. But we are always comforted by the adage that there is a reason for everything or the saying that God can make lemonade out of lemons. We Christians ask our questions and then wait for His answer. That works for us. We pause, and we learn. I get that.

  • Life lessons learned from Lincoln

    I have been studying about Abraham Lincoln more in depth since I started working at the LaRue County Herald News.

    I think we can all agree that Lincoln was a successful man who made a positive impact on millions of lives. As president, Lincoln abolished slavery and led our country through the Civil War, which was one of the most trying times in our nation’s history.

  • Lincoln Days Volunteer Spotlight: Sarah Graham

    In 2013, I was asked to be a part of Leadership Larue County. When the class started they guaranteed us that we would learn something about the town we lived in. I’ll be honest, I thought that was impossible since I was born and raised here. Ironically, I ended up learning many things I never knew, but the thing that stuck with me the most was the sense of civic duty that I felt.

  • LaRue Co. marks end of slavery at Juneteenth

  • Confessions of a cheapskate: Grace isn’t free

    I love free stuff.

    When we lived in California we lived near scads of big- box warehouse stores that always gave away free samples. Sometimes, if you got there on the right day at the right time, you could eat enough free samples and be too full to eat lunch or dinner when you got home.

    I wasn’t thinking of free stuff a few Sundays ago when I stopped at a little Pentecostal church I had never visited before, even though I’ve talked to the pastor many times.

    And what to my wondering eyes should appear? Free goodies and coffee!
