  • A trip to forget: Broken rod led to broken spirits

    Fishing is relaxing.

    That’s what they tell you when you don’t fish. It isn’t until you get out on the water with someone that you realize just how distinctly not relaxing it really is.

    When my friend offered to take me fishing at his family’s farm over the weekend, I thought, “Oh, this’ll be fun.” I was right, but not for the reasons I’d expected.

  • Where have the workers gone?

    Swimming against a strong current is an apt comparison for the plight of most workers today.

    A recent study by the Kentucky Center for Economic Policy illustrates just how hard it has become not only for the unemployed, but even for those who get up every day and go to work.

    “The State of Working Kentucky 2014” reported that between 2001 and 2013, Kentucky workers’ median wages fell 8 percent after adjusting for inflation.

    And those are the workers who still have jobs.

    Wesley Meadows’ Brigade seeks bikes for Christmas

    Wesley Meadows United Methodist Churh is sponsoring the bike brigade which is part of the Santa Run held on Christmas Eve in LaRue County.

    The project officer for the bike brigade is Robbin Redmon.

    The Santa Run consists of the Rudolph Bus (a repurposed school bus), along with fire trucks, squad cars, a caravan of pickups and cattle trailers making five stops in the community giving food, toys and bicycles to underprivileged children.

  • Joel Ray Sprowls: One in a million

    Joel Ray Sprowls is celebrating 60 years of entertaining audiences with his Lincoln Jamboree. Six decades of success in any business is truly something to be proud of, but in entertainment it’s almost unheard of, with rare exceptions like the legendary George Burns, or Bob Hope.

    Joel Ray is LaRue county’s own legendary performer, and Master of Ceremonies.

    This happened 82 years ago, but it is a true story. I wrote it while taking part in a writing group at Atria Elizabethtown.
