  • COLUMN: Sunrise Volunteers

    Sunrise Volunteers sponsored a gospel concert on Sept. 21 at the Hodgenville Civic Center. All proceeds benefit Sunrise Manor residents.

    Local talent included The Brotherhood, Jeff Johnson, Brighter Day, Patrick Banks, Young at Heart, Bob Cooper and Tim Shockley. The music was superb and everyone had a good time.

  • COLUMN: The Obscure Alcove 'Check out the classics'

     “It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better place that I go to than I have ever known.”  Would reading this final line from A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens compel you to read this piece of classic literature for the first time?

    What about this first line from The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner? “Through the fence, between the curling flower spaces, I could see them hitting.” So many time-honored books to choose from at the library.
