  • America: Love it... and make it better by volunteering

    A long time ago there was a bumper sticker that read: “America, Love It or Leave It”. At that time Dad pointed out that it should read “America, Love it and Make it Better”.

  • Lists and twists

    Here is your reminder: Summer will be gone before you know it!

    So you have been warned. Time to get out the Summer Bucket List and do the things that you will regret if you do not get something accomplished Yet Again This Year.

    Those things that cannot be done in cooler weather, those things that cannot be done with the kids once school starts again and those things that cannot be regained, once they are gone.

    I thought I would share my Bucket List for this summer.

  • There are good people on drugs

    I enjoyed listening to Andy Beshear speak at the local rotary club meeting last Thursday. Beshear is running for attorney general and stopped by Hodgenville on the campaign trail.

    Beshear’s speech was centered around three main issues that he said Kentuckians were struggling with the most. Those issues were the child abuse epidemic, drug epidemic and the increasing amount of scams across the state.

    While all three are major issues that need to be addressed, the issue that struck home with me the most was the drug epidemic.

  • Celebrate Kentucky’s ties to Independence Day

    By State Representative Terry Mills

    As we ready to celebrate the Fourth of July on Saturday, it’s worth remembering the words President Kennedy spoke at Philadelphia’s Independence Hall a little more than five decades ago.

  • Float my boat
  • Pows and wows!

     I don’t know why God does what he does. But we are always comforted by the adage that there is a reason for everything or the saying that God can make lemonade out of lemons. We Christians ask our questions and then wait for His answer. That works for us. We pause, and we learn. I get that.

  • Life lessons learned from Lincoln

    I have been studying about Abraham Lincoln more in depth since I started working at the LaRue County Herald News.

    I think we can all agree that Lincoln was a successful man who made a positive impact on millions of lives. As president, Lincoln abolished slavery and led our country through the Civil War, which was one of the most trying times in our nation’s history.
