  • COLUMN: Be a peacemaker for God's blessing

    Blessed are the peacemakers. Matthew 5:9

    If you want God’s blessing, become a peacemaker. Jesus didn’t say, “Blessed are the peace-lovers,” because everyone loves peace. Nor did he say, “Blessed are the peaceable,” who are never disturbed by anything. No, he said, “Blessed are those who work for peace.”

    Peacemakers are rare because peace-making is hard work. But it’s worth it. Relationships are always worth restoring.

  • Teen injured in Bardstown Road crash

    A Hodgenville teen was injured Friday in a near head-on vehicle collision on Bardstown Road.
    Warren P. Banks, 22, of Hodgenville, was driving a 2000 Dodge Neon south on U.S. 31E in the Ovesen Heights community about 4:10 p.m., according to LaRue County Deputy Matt Darst.

    I’m not a big fan of Facebook, but I do enjoy playing “Gardens of Time” and looking at photos of my grandchildren and that seems to be the fastest way of doing that.
    Last week, though, I noticed a new group called “You’re probably from LaRue County if ...” I had to check it out.
    Actually, it says “Larue” which is just wrong, but that’s beside the point.
    There’s another one “You know you grew up in LaRue County, KY, if …”

  • COLUMN: I'll retire some day ... really, I will

    Forty years, four months and one day – the countdown is on. That’s the day I’m eligible for retirement.
    I have plans of sitting on a beach somewhere (preferably in Gulf Shores, Ala.) and soaking up the warm rays of sunshine – just as I did a few years back.
     I can’t wait to read a book without interruption, nap whenever I please, take a boat out for some deep-sea fishing and do all the things that I want to do, when I want to do it.
