  • Learn to curb those impulse buys

    Are you an impulse shopper? Try to never purchase expensive items on impulse. Instead, think over each expensive purchase for at least 24 hours. Acting on this principle will help you have far fewer regrets about impulse purchases. Also, indulgences can put a dent in your finances.

  • Just Ask - May 15

    Is there an ordinance regulating how tall grass can grow within Hodgenville city limits?
    Some of the areas are turning into eyesores.

    City Clerk MaDonna Hornback said grass can be 10-inches tall before it is considered a nuisance. However, if the lot is two acres or more, the ordinance does not apply.
    If you would like a property added to the city’s growing list of  “yards that need to be mowed,” call City Hall at 358-3832.

  • Weather is hot, humid, crazy

    Crazy weather seems to be the normal description for Kentucky’s weather patterns … simply because there really isn’t one.
    Unlike more temperate climates, which are used to bearing with rain for days on end, or more tropical or desert climates that are used to dry seasons, Kentucky is a combination – an odd and unpredictable one.
    Of course we do not have to deal with hurricane force winds, earthquakes and surprisingly enough – not a whole lot of tornados.

  • Ready to survive cancer

    Never in my wildest imagination would I have thought I would be diagnosed with cancer.
    How could this happen to me?
    As a woman, being told I had rectal cancer was very embarrassing, and let’s face it, none of us like to talk about that part of our bodies. Suddenly, reality set in and I felt as though that I had been punched in the stomach, and I was forced to confront my situation head on.

    Propes is a community treasure
    I met Donnie Propes in 1986, while his wife Janet served as the county treasurer. It was easy to tell that they were both God fearing people who loved their community and were willing to do anything for their friends and family.
    Janet was taken far too early in life from all of us, as we lost a wonderful lady in our community. But Donnie picked up the pieces and carried on as Janet and God would want him to.

  • Just Ask

    John Wright, community relations specialist for Hardin County Schools, said,” yes, all Hardin County Schools students have an opportunity to eat a free breakfast. Do they all do it?  No.”

    “It is not through a grant (however). It is something that our district provides all year long.”

    The program started last year.

    Some students qualify for free or reduced price breakfast and lunch through the state.

    The LaRue County High School Baseball Team would like to express their appreciation and thanks to the area businesses and individuals who made donations toward the costs of the recent trip to Florida for the Fort Walton Beach Bash.

  • Wouldn’t you druther go to Druther’s Restaurant?

    Those of us who grew up in the South in the ’70s fondly remember such bygone icons of Americana as the Z/28 Camaro, the original cast of “Saturday Night Live” and Druther’s.

    The last Druther’s Restaurant in America is in Campbellsville. The chain existed from 1963 until 1981.

    There used to be one in Hodgenville.

    If you’re 50-something, you may recall the jingle: “I’d druther go to Druther’s Restaurant.”
