  • Schools increase dropout age to 18

    The LaRue County School Board last week raised the dropout age from 16 to 18.

    In a special meeting June 25, the board discussed the approval of the Senate Bill 97, known as the “Graduate Kentucky” bill passed in March, intended to raise the compulsory drop out age from 16 to 18.

    “Districts all across the state have discussed this bill; a few had midnight meetings,” said Superintendent Sam Sanders, during the overview of the bill. “Once 55 (percent of the) districts in the state approve the change it will be a required change.”

  • Tino's offers the 'cutting edge'

    Master Barber Tino Cobb has opened a barbershop on Lincoln Square. The historic building has held Keith’s Barbershop, Edlin’s Barbershop and Bill Seymour’s Barbershop in the past.

    “I was born and raised here and I’ve always seen this building as a barbershop,” Cobb said.
    Cobb bought the shop in February from the former owner, Robby Keith, who has been battling cancer.

    Cobb has maintained much of the historic look of the shop and is continuing traditional barber services – including an old-fashioned razor shave.

  • Body found on I-65 identified

    Nearly a month after a woman’s body was found off Interstate 65 in Hardin County, authorities have identified her as Madiha E. Roshdy Hafzalla, 27, of Nashville, Tenn.

    An Egyptian national, she was discovered May 29 by crews mowing off the northbound lanes of I-65 near the 99-mile marker.

    The body bore signs of head trauma, investigators said, and likely had been left by the side of the road several days before it was discovered. Authorities released photos of some of the woman’s clothing and jewelry hoping to prompt tips from the public.

  • Jamboree: Music is an opportunity to share faith

    “Loving God, loving each other,
    Making music with my friends;
    Loving God, loving each other,
    And the story never ends.”

    The above Gaither Vocal Band lyrics pretty much sum up my 46 years as a keyboardist and singer at the Lincoln Jamboree.

    It is something I love to do – getting to witness through singing gospel songs; getting to make music with some of the most talented entertainers; and getting paid to do it.

  • Stay strong, America

    America’s strength – where is it to be found?

    The answer is given in scripture. “Righteousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.” (Proverbs 14:34) Righteousness is a moral uprightness and social justice. “Reproach” means “to bend low” in shame, in disgrace or in ultimate downfall.
