  • Devices from CES I would buy in 2017

    The 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) was held in Las Vegas in January and hundreds of vendors came to show off their wares and attempt to convince resellers that you, the consumer, could not live without their products.

    CES is the geek show of the year, and if you have an interest in technology, I strongly suggest you do some Googling and check out what the show had to offer this year.

  • Rep. Brandon Reed’s legislative update - March 8, 2017

    As the end of the Regular Session draws near, we continue work on behalf of the people of Kentucky. This week, the House passed measures to combat our state’s drug epidemic, protect innocent life, and support our firefighters and veterans.

    Late nights, packed committee meetings, and heated debate marked the fifth week of the 2017 session.

  • LETTER: Too much concern over revenue not enough about people

    I’ve had great pride in being able to tell people that I am from Hodgenville and LaRue County, a dry city in a dry county. I, along with others, was disheartened to see the issue of alcohol sales being brought up for consideration in our town.

  • LETTER: Views on alcohol from a Christian perspective

    Dear Editor,

    I would like to respond both as a Christian and a pastor to the recent articles in the newspaper regarding the petitions now being circulated in our community to have a vote regarding the sale of alcohol. Already I have read some statements referring to Scriptures that, while they were made with sincerity, are completely wrong and inaccurate.

  • Renaissance Recycling is about to “Flip its Lids!”

    Recently, a church group let me know that they were saving lids to recycle and they would go to a new bench or table for their church. This program is sponsored by Green Tree Plastics out of Evansville, Indiana.

    We have been saving for them and others for some time and we are overrun. I have misplaced the phone number for the group sponsor that had requested help in the summer, and hope that someone reading this will call me with that information, PLEASE!
