  • Millennials– Vital to Our Workplace

    Did you know by 2020 millennials will make-up 50 percent or more of the workforce? It is an alarming statistic if you buy into the negative stereotypes that exist around this generation, born between 1977 and 1995.

  • Where corn don't grow

    Corn grows all over LaRue County. It’s hard to drive anywhere and not see corn growing. So I think you’ll understand when I tell you there’s a song, sung by Travis Tritt, called “Where Corn Don’t Grow” (I know here I go again with my musical references).

  • Safely view the solar eclipse

    Much of the state will be able to see parts of solar eclipse August 21, with some areas of Western Kentucky experiencing a total solar eclipse. As you look to the skies, remember to take the proper precautions to protect your eyesight.

  • Just Ask: What's with all these helicopters?

  • Who is fake?

    I love it. I get to see a lot of different places and meet all kinds of different people. Most importantly, we are all serving God.

    My wife Danielle sings harmony in the group. The rest of the group is made up of her parents, brother, uncle and cousins.
