  • LETTER: Ensure your pets have adequate shelter

    Winter, with its bitter wind, rain and snow, is rapidly approaching. Now is the time to check our doghouses, patching and repairing all cracks and leaks. It is also time for new, clean bedding, whether it is straw, blankets or carpeting, this bedding will need to be replaced often; putting a board along the bottom of the door opening will help keep the bedding inside the house. Also, turning the door away from the wind helps protect your dog from the cold.

  • Readers assist with Bloyd's Cafe token mystery

    A couple of weeks ago, Tim Meredith contacted The LaRue County Herald News, seeking information about a token.

    His letter said: “A friend was searching through his pocket change for a soda and noticed a token from H.M. Bloyds Café, Hodgenville, in the mix. He, knowing I am a life-long resident of Hodgenville, gave it to me…. I wonder if anyone has heard of the business and possibly the location and era. The token lettering is in very good condition and the beer must have been cheap.”

  • COLUMN: This Christmas, look back at life's lessons

    When I was a child I celebrated Christmas the same way children celebrate today. I demanded the most expensive gifts, never clothes, and if I didn’t get what I wanted I threw a fit.

    After years of hearing my dad tell of how Christmas was when he was a kid, I finally woke up and listened.

    Dad lived in the country, down a dirt road, in Stephensburg. My Mamaw and Papaw were poor as a pluck-feathered hen. Papaw worked in the rock quarry down the road and Mamaw stayed home, raising eight kids in a two-bedroom house on a piece of land they called their home.

  • Festival of Trees displays creativity of community

    As of Monday, we have 11 full sized trees, eight table-top trees and a couple of tiny ones, seven wreaths and various other decorative items for Festival of Trees. Main Street volunteers worked long, hard and creatively to put together the trees that are being auctioned for Main Street. Come to see them this Saturday or Thursday through Saturday of next week.

  • Christian higher education is a form of mission work

    Each October, the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities and its member and affiliate institutions mark Christian Higher Education Month.

    House Resolution 300 in June 2003 declared the special month, which celebrates the role of Christ-centered colleges in America’s history and in students’ lives.

    Campbellsville University, located in south central Kentucky, is one of those colleges.

  • Information sought about Bloyds' token

    Looking for token clues

    A friend was searching through his pocket change for a soda and noticed a token from H.M. Bloyds Café, Hodgenville, in the mix. Him, knowing I am a life long resident of Hodgenville, gave it to me. I asked my mother, who will celebrate her 87th birthday this year, about it and she didn't have any recollection of the business.
