  • COLUMN: The Lord's goodness is sweet

    We are blessed with good food in America, whether it is in our home or in one of the many restaurants near us. One wife said she had changed her system for labeling homemade freezer meals. At one time she labeled the containers as meatloaf, pot roast, etc. Now she stocks her freezer with things her husband really likes –  “whatever, anything, I don’t know, I don’t care, something good, or food.”  

    No matter how he responds when she asks him what he wants for dinner, she knows there is something waiting in the freezer.

    There is an accursed thing in your midst, O Israel. You cannot stand before your enemies until you take away the accursed thing from among you. Joshua 7:13

    If some emergency causes a power outage at the courthouse in Hodgenville, a 130-kilowatt generator will allow emergency services and other offices in the building to continue to function.
    That’s what Tommy Turner, judge-executive, told members of LaRue County fiscal court July 12 at their meeting at the courthouse. He said the building could also be used as an emergency shelter.

  • COLUMN: Old phone is smart enough to make calls

    The first time I saw one of those strange little QR codes in an advertisement, I thought it was a mistake. It looked like a graphic artist had mangled a photo or barcode.
    Quick Response codes have been around since the mid-1990s but their popularity has increased since the introduction of “smartphones.”
    They’ve even been showing up in ads in The LaRue County Herald News.

  • COLUMN: QR codes and smartphones are the wave of the future

    Facebook, Twitter, television, email, mp3 player, video chat and weather updates are only a few things I can do on my phone. Why? Because it’s smart.
    I’m one of the one-out-of-three Americans who have turned to relying on smartphone devices for everyday uses. I use it to keep up with my friends on social sites, communicate via email to family members and work, and my favorite of all, schedule my television to DVR shows automatically (Like American Idol).
    I rely on my phone for most everything I do, but sometimes it’s smarter than me.
