  • Preventing unwanted cell phone calls and texts

    Are you tired of unsolicited phone calls? We all receive them and they are a pain, especially when they occur while we are working, eating dinner or trying to sleep.

    Signing up with the Do Not Call Registry can help, but it does not stop all calls. Calls that are exempt include political and charitable calls, informational calls, debt collection, phone surveys and calls from companies you have done business with or have given permission to call. Other unwanted calls and text messages are illegal.

  • LETTER: Thank you for support of Fall Music event

    Dear Editor,

    Thank you seems like such a small way to acknowledge the wonderful support this community has given for the Hodgenville Fall Music Event this year and all three years of its’ existence. The Thoroughbred Chorus gave a world class performance Saturday evening to a very appreciative audience. Drew Wheaton and Half Ton Quartet performed at each of the LaRue County schools on Friday and even some of the faculty members were good sports and performed with them. The students at each school were very respectful and attentive to the program.

  • LETTER: Litter a nuisance

    Dear editor,

    My name is Sandy Kidd and I am the Local Missions Leader for Parkway Baptist Church at 325 Old Sonora Road in Hodgenville. I was able to organize a group of seven on Saturday, October 29 who participated in roadside clean up on Old Sonora Road, Dorsey Lane and Tonieville Road.

    It is amazing what people will throw out on the roadside. The most interesting items we found were seven bags of kitty litter, used kitty litter that is.

    Social Media – If you are always checking for status updates, you may not be able to stay on track. If you feel like you have to check, limit it to only when you have break times at work or at home.

  • Getting into the Sway of things

    Small businesses owners don’t have the money to hire professional web-designers and content generators to create timely and informative sites, and they don’t have the time to learn how to use technical web development tools either. So, how does a small business owner compete with the big companies?

  • Apple updates its operating system changes naming convention

    Apple has chosen to end its long running naming convention and do away with OS X, releasing the next generation of OS last month, titled macOS Sierra.

    There is no real mystery here, just a changing of the guard as current Apple executives move away from the long time branding under Steve Jobs and bring the Mac naming conventions more in line with the iOS, WatchOS, and tvOS.
