Today's Features

  • As a child, I recall teachers and other influential individuals challenging me to set my sights on a goal in the future and strive for that goal. They spoke of the importance of setting the sights to remain focused and centered while progressing toward a goal. Such a mentality guards against the threat of distraction or derailment on the journey.

  • “Mahalia, the wife of R. Adkins, she was the sunshine of our home.”  These words are on a tombstone in an old country cemetery.  I believe every wife and mother would like to be remembered in this way.

    To be the sunshine of your home does not mean the world has to always revolve around you or that you must always  be on top of the world and smiling.  But the mother needs to provide warmth and light that each home needs.

  • For the past four months, middle and high school age youth in LaRue County have had a place where they can drop in, hang out, and meet with other kids their age in a relaxed, safe environment.

    Called Hodgenville Youth Drop, the center is located at 604 Beechtree Street in Hodgenville.

  • Thought for the week: Love your parents. We are so busy growing up, we often forget they are growing old. 

    Happy Mother’s Day to my sweet momma, Cathy LaFollette, and all the other mothers. Be sure to call them or send a card.

    Happy Nurse’s Week to all my coworkers and friends who are nurses. Our jobs as nurses are to cushion the sorrow and celebrate the job every day, while we are just doing our job - Christine Belle.

  • Congratulations to Essence Barbour on receiving a scholarship to the University of Kentucky. This past Sunday was communion Sunday at Lane Lincoln.

    Carrie Arnette was admitted to Hardin Memorial Hospital last week and recently returned home.

    Lane Lincoln- Women’s Bible Study was Monday evening. There will be a Bible Study this Wednesday evening from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

    Thought for Today: We need not to worry ourselves with the ending of the world tomorrow. Instead, we need to check the condition of our soul in case Jesus comes back tonight.

  • Howard and Lucille Bailey Skaggs will be celebrating their 75th wedding anniversary from 3-6 p.m. on May 20, 2018 at Ovesen Heights Baptist Church Ministry Center located at 1604 Bardstown Road in Hodgenville, KY.

    They were married May 22, 1943 by Bro. Bruce Chelf. They are the parents of five children; James “Jimmy” Skaggs (deceased), Imogene Warren, Gerald Skaggs, Eloise Phillips, and Mellony Skaggs.
