  • More than a festival

    I thoroughly enjoyed attending and covering my first Lincoln Days Celebration this year. I also enjoyed getting to see a lot of my family and friends who traveled from eastern Kentucky to attend Lincoln days. Overall, it was a great weekend.

    If you had seen me out and about roaming around with my camera during the event, it wouldn’t have taken you long to figure out that I was new to the whole idea of Lincoln Days. To me, Lincoln Days was different than any other festival or event I have ever attended in the state. It didn’t take me long to realize that fact.

  • Apple’s new iPhone - Which one is right for you
  • WWJD? You might be surprised

    By Nancy Kennedy

    A few weeks ago, a woman called me with an idea for my column.

    She had just read “In His Steps,” a book written in 1896 that sparked the “WWJD” (What Would Jesus Do?) phenomena in the 1990s, which included the WWJD bracelets, bumper stickers, refrigerator magnets, etc.

    The book, written by Charles Sheldon, is a fictional story about a pastor who challenges his congregation not to do anything for an entire year without first asking, “What would Jesus do?” and then do that.

  • Believe and recieve

    Belief can be life-changing. Daniel’s belief gave him the courage to face the lion’s den. The three Hebrew children had belief when thrown into the furnace. It is belief that controls our actions.  To receive the blessings of God we must believe right.

  • How I became a 'former' city girl

    Prior to my parents moving to Kentucky and eventually New Haven, my experience outdoors consisted of playing in our small yard, riding my bike up and down the sidewalk in front of our house as well as picnicking and hiking in the Metro Parks in Cleveland, Ohio. We would also go on camping trips to Kentucky; that’s when my parents fell in love with this state.

  • All humbling, no exalting...

    I had the privilege to attend and cover the Luke 14 event held in Hodgenville last Saturday.

    For those of you who haven’t heard or read, the event was held to honor people with disabilities as well as their families and caretakers. The event featured games, activities and entertainment by people with a wide variety of disabilities.

  • Help your children eat healthier

    As with many adults, getting kids to eat healthier is easier said than done. Here are some tips and tricks to help you get your family eating more nutritious foods.

    · Allow children to help with the preparation of meals. When they do, allow them to create fun shapes with food. Children are more likely to eat what they prepare.

    · Add vegetables to existing meals. For example, add lettuce to sandwiches. Add fruits like strawberries, blueberries and bananas to breakfast cereals and oatmeal.

  • Guys Read Program Kick off coming

    By Sheree Priddy

     

    As I’ve begun to put together our Guys Read book club and started digging further into the topic, I have discovered multiple websites and books dedicated to the topic of boys and reading. There is a website called ‘Boys Rock, Boys Read’ where two men blog about books for boys. Besides GuysRead.com, there is also a boysread.org website. All of these are dedicated to promoting books that will be more in line with the topics and tastes of young males.

  • A busy summer at the Chamber

    By Krista Levee

    The LaRue County Chamber of Commerce again this year participated in the Pride of the Counties booth at the Kentucky State Fair. We want to thank everyone who visited and volunteered during the 10 day event. It is a huge undertaking and it would not be possible without the continuous support from our chamber members and community volunteers.
