  • 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.

  • Are you having trouble concentrating?

    Do you have so many things to do that you just cannot seem to concentrate on anything?  There are many distractions in our day-to-day lives.  Here are a list of some distractions you may fight and how to deal with them:

    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.

  • Caregiving and depression

    UK Elder Care shares that caring for an aging loved one may create an overabundance of emotions. The uncertain future, career and financial worries, difficult life decisions and the potential for an unwanted lifestyle change can create fear, hopelessness, anger, resentment, and helplessness. All of this will affect your physical, emotional and mental wellbeing.

  • The changing work environment

    Leaders have to understand the five generations in the workforce have somewhat different values, thought and beliefs about how the workplace should be and how individuals should act. The problem with that is most leaders do not believe it or are not worried about it. The old adage - if they want to work here, they will do it the way we have always done it doesn’t really apply any longer, because these younger generations do not see it that way. They can be loyal if treated the way they want to be. However, they will leave without a second thought.

  • Gray scale kind of day

    As Publisher of The LaRue County Herald News, my role and responsibility has multiple levels. As Publisher, I am in charge of the overall content and editorial direction of the newspaper; I’m also in charge of the advertising you see in the paper each and every week. Outside of that, the title dictates I lead staff, do payroll, balance budgets, and a seemingly endless laundry list of to-do’s and sometime even have time to breath. I take my role very seriously and love doing what I do every day.
