  • 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.

  • TIMEee^FORee^TREES: Main Street kicks off event

         Main Street’s Annual Festival of Trees will take entries for a few more days.

         This is a fun way for an organization, a business, a church or individual to make money for a non-profit cause. We’ll take trees of almost any size including table trees, plus wreaths, centerpieces, banners and more.     

         We don’t guarantee results, but last year every single item was sold in the silent auction.

  • Bikers visit local soldier's grave at Custer's Last Stand

    In July, Russell Perkins and his nephew, Larry Skaggs, toured the northwest on motorcycles. The Hodgenville men spent about three weeks riding through Wyoming, Montana, Washington and Oregon to the Redwood forests in California.

    They rode more than 4,300 miles and ended the tour at the Sturgis, S.D. motorcycle rally.

    During a stop at the Little Big Horn Battlefield, they searched for and found the gravesite of a young man who died on the battlefield – also known as Custer’s Last Stand - in 1876.

  • Court case to challenge Kentucky's transparency laws

    There’s a difference between the public’s right to know and what the public “ought to know.”

    It’s a discussion my husband Bud and I have had several times.

    Kentucky’s open meetings and open records laws are near the top of the heap in comparison to other states. The Attorney General’s office sides with the taxpayer nearly every time when a question arises about access to records.

    But there are a few loopholes that could be filled.

  • Supports Cruse and family

    Terry Cruse is the current mayor of Hodgenville and is running for another term. He has tried to be responsible, as mayor, for seeing to many changes within the city – changes for the better and beautification.

    Of course, there are always some people who criticize everything, when things don’t go exactly like they want. There are people who are never satisfied with anything and always complain about something or someone.

  • Hours of Prayer

    The annual “Hours of Prayer,” a worldwide program, will be 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 23.

    Please join in one hour of prayer for the nursing homes, various types of care centers and their residents around the world. This is the hour we can all come together as a like-minded body of Christian believers. Even though we may be far apart in location, we can become united in spirit.

    Other locals around the country and the world will be praying.

  • Anyone else suffering from disconnects?

    I don’t know how our current cycle of national elections will turn out. I do know I feel jerked around by a lot of what I have heard and read. So many statements of disconnected, incomplete and sometimes incorrect information ….

    Among these:

  • A RINGING TRUTH: How to stop harassing debt collectors

    A debt collector yelled at me this morning. I tried to yell back – but I think she hung up the phone before I got to that point.

    And I think it was a debt collector. She had all the required traits – attitude, persistence, hide like a water buffalo.

    The funny thing is … it wasn’t my debt.

    It was my morning snooze, however. I worked 16 hours Monday and another eight Tuesday – on top of the 60-or-so from the previous week – so I believed a few extra zzzzs were owed me.
