  • Hughes making the most of return home

    As I began my time in LaRue County, I was first introduced to Jeff Hughes.

    Jeff is president of the Lincoln Days Celebration that begins Saturday, Oct. 2. Jeff has served on the Lincoln Days committee for four years and has worked very hard this year getting the event sponsors and supporters all going in the same direction.

    Born and raised in Hodgenville, Hughes left small town life to go to the “Big Cities,” believing he would never return. But after working some 30 years, Hughes found his way back home to Hodgenville.

  • Preaching politics from the pulpit

    Preaching politics from the pulpit is being done more and more by religious preachers. True Christianity is inspired by the apostles’ doctrine. Jesus instructed them to preach what they had heard him say. We, by secondary means, are to preach the inspired word from the New Testament. The Holy Spirit inspired men worked hard to make sure it was preserved for all generations.

  • Check out Hodgenville's beautiful signs

    If you haven’t already, I would encourage everyone to take notice of our new “Welcome to Hodgenville” signs, they are just so classy and beautiful.

    Thanks to Mayor Terry Cruse and the City of Hodgenville for the signs, new banners on the square, lights at Creekfront Park, and the free movies with refreshments.

    It is easy to be critical of our leadership, but it should be easier to say thanks.

    Thanks, Mayor and the City of Hodgenville, for your time and effort put into making our great city even greater.

  • Kentucky Stonehenge may result from a long history of gauming

    On Labor Day, my husband Bud and I drove to Munfordville and Cave City. We didn’t have a particular reason – just gauming around, as my dad used to say. (Gaum is a southern term used for “having no particular destination.” It may be used also to say “what an awful mess.” Some people spell it “gom.” Chances are, your dad said it too.)

    Anyway, while driving through Munfordville, we noticed a small sign that said “Kentucky Stonehenge.” Having no particular reason not to, we decided to follow the arrow.

  • Supports Hornback for school board

    I write today in support of Mike Hornback for LaRue County Schools Board of Education.

    He has consistently put his support of the LaRue County Schools into action.  That’s the type of school board member LaRue Countians should support. It is easy for people to say that they care about education and our students. There really isn’t anyone who would openly say he or she didn’t support our public education system. However, saying and doing are entirely different things.  That’s what sets Mike Hornback apart from the average citizen.

  • Appreciates volunteer firefighters, good Samaritans

    On my way home Tuesday evening, I drove upon an accident on KY 210 in Hodgenville. I suspect the accident had just occurred or had just been discovered because emergency service personnel had not arrived yet. 

  • Cool, country air can lift the lowest spirits

    My husband and I have recently taken a leap of faith; we bought our first home.

    Along with the struggles of moving, we also are making repairs, going to college, working and parenting a 3-year-old. In all of this mess, it is often times easy to forget how blessed we are.

  • Road courtesy, fears have lessons for life

    Very recently I spent some 650 miles worth of time on road travel to a jubilee celebration for some of our Sisters of Mercy in northern Ohio. The celebration was truly beautiful, such a cause for reflection on and great appreciation of God’s providence.

    We travelers were pretty good about car-pooling – the car passenger list grew to two in Louisville and to four Sisters in Cincinnati. It was great company besides.
