    Communication will make the LCS District stronger

    The school year is underway and off to an incredible start for LaRue County Schools. On the heels of back-to-school season, it is school tax season throughout Kentucky. The LCS Board of Education will consider proposed 2015 tax rates Thursday.

  • Happy Father's Day

    Well it’s almost time to celebrate dad again with ties and cards that are funny or made from the hands of the littlest of these to show just how special Daddy really is.

    My Daddy, named John Samuel, was always called “Jack.” He used to say, “all great men named John are called Jack,” and he was one of the great ones.

  • The things we do for our children

    When my daughter Natalie was young, she wanted to get her ears pierced. And even though she wanted her ears pierced, she was afraid of needles. Her solution, one that was clever and smart, was for me to get my ears pierced to show her it did not hurt.

  • Things that make you wonder

    By Nancy Kennedy

    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.
