  • The sounds of Christmas --- they are all about us.  There are two from the first Christmas that cause us sadness --- the sound of the soldier’s sword as they go from house to house killing innocent babies and then there is the heart wrenching cry of the babies who are being killed.  This is right in the middle of the Christmas story.  What could these say to us?

  • In 1865, Phillip Brooks penned the traditional Christmas Carol, “O Little Town of Bethlehem.” Brooks wrote the carol for the purpose of helping children in Sunday School understand the significance and importance of the birth place of Jesus Christ. He based the hymn on his own personal experience that occurred two years prior when he rode on horse back from Jerusalem to Bethlehem to aid in a Christmas Eve service.

  • A new boutique has opened in LaRue County, and on Friday, December 7, The LaRue County Chamber of Commerce celebrated with their newest member in a ribbon cutting ceremony.

  • The LCHS Speech and Drama program once again teamed up with the Kelly Dean Sanders Fund to present ‘Dinner and a Show’ to raise funds for both programs. Last weekend, the community was able to attend the collaborative project, as community members filled the auditorium, and enjoyed a great meal as they were treated to the LCHS Production of Christmas Belles. All the profits were split between the two programs.

    Christmas in the County

  • For some people Christmas is not a welcomed  time and not one for celebration.  Crimes, murders and violence rise during Christmas.  Suicides increase and psychiatric treatments go up.  Fear, fright, depression, hopelessness and despair is the Christmas spirit for many and they don’t want it.
