  • Blood donors, volunteers appreciated

    Thank you to the 34 individuals who volunteered to donate blood Tuesday at the Hodgenville Woman’s Club. Many thanks to the volunteers who worked: Cecil Druen, Diane Rock and Rob Brown. I am so sorry for the delays and any inconvenience it may have caused. The blood drive will return Feb. 9.

  • Heart Walk thanks

    E’town Swim and Fitness would like to thank all the great members that helped us raise a little over $285 toward the American Heart Association Heart Walk Dec. 8. Penelope Watkins, team captain, Vickie Melton, Tracy Stearman, Jennifer Jones, Ashley Lally, and William Click did a great job raising donations. Unfortunately due the inclement weather the turnout was small, but it is the efforts of those that make the event a success.

  • Toys for Tots offers thanks

    LaRue County Community Action would like to thank Curves, Pamida, Magnolia Bank, Lincoln National Bank, LaRue County Road Department, Cumberland Products, Crop Production and all the businesses who supported the Toys for Tots program this year and also a big thank you to the family of the late Pearl Ann Allen for donating their mother’s Barbie doll collection in the effort to provide families toys for Christmas. Without their help we could not provide what toys we did this year.

  • At least we know what to get her for Christmas

    Recently, I began what seemed like a normal Thursday, that is, until I arrived at work.

  • Accept greetings in the spirit they're given

    Every year about this time, great debates arise about keeping “Christ in Christmas” and whether it is proper for stores to use “Merry X-mas” or the more generic “Seasons Greetings” in advertising or for clerks to greet customers with “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas.”

    I think we should be grateful for clerks who are polite enough to offer any greeting, much less pick apart how they say it. Friendly clerks are a blessing.

  • Tradition provides focus for holiday

    Christmas traditions vary from household to household.

    Growing up, Santa delivered his gifts directly to our bedroom ... and he never wrapped.

    When my sisters and I would leap out of bed in the dead of night, it was like a toy store exploded in our bedrooms.

    My parents worked long hours, maintained a Christmas Club account and sacrificed year round for the joy that the holiday brings.

    Of course as kids, we had little appreciation of their efforts. We were consumed by our greed.
