  •  Thought for the week: Some days are better, some days are worse. Look for the blessings instead of the curse. Be positive, stay strong and get enough rest. You can’t do it all, but you can do your best.

    Facebook is a great tool to keep up with family and friends, or I thought it was until you get attacked online by a family member. It is so sad to say the least. I am not allowed to be her aunt anymore, really? Life goes on without the drama.

    How should we handle a victory? How should we act when we lose? Regrettably all of us have failed in our responses and reactions in competitive games, events, or votes. Our words and behaviors on such occasions may have even caused lasting damage to important relationships. Here are a few biblical tips to prepare us for our next loss, or future victory.

  • One of my favorite scripture verses is Isaiah 40:31, “Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles; they will run and not get tired; they will walk and not become weary.” Other prophets used condemnation, but Isaiah tried a healing hand. The comfort was based on the fact that Israel’s sins had been confessed and forgiven.

  • Several years ago, parent groups across the nation began to become involved in programs designed to keep their children safe on the night of graduation. After years of traditional graduation night parties and statistics that showed that spikes in teenage drinking and accidents occurred on that night in communities all across the country, parent groups began looking for alternatives so that their children could enjoy a safe, drug and alcohol-free graduation celebration.

  • Shoe collection

    A shoe collection is taking place at the First Baptist Church to raise funds for a medical service dog for Xander Helm. Each pair of shoes collected will equal $10 in the fundraiser. The shoes will be cleaned, repaired, repurposed and used around the world. The collection totes are located in the front and back foyers of the church located at 730 Tonieville Road in Hodgenville. For more information call 270-358-3193.

  • Because of an increased number of ambulance calls, LaRue County Fiscal Court, meeting at the courthouse in Hodgenville April 10, authorized Emergency Medical Services Director Mike Cottrell to add another full-time crew of two paramedics and two emergency medical technicians to his staff.

  • Our deepest sympathy is with the Aaron Barbour in the passing of his son last week. The visitation was Monday, followed by funeral services at William R. Rust Funeral Home Chapel with Reverend Douglas Barbour and Reverend Billy Curle officiating. Burial was at the Buffalo Cemetery. The grandparents were Reverend Douglas and Maggie Barbour, Pastor of First Baptist Buffalo.
