  • Have you ever felt like life is not working out according to your plans? Have you ever felt like your dreams and excitement have been shattered by life’s circumstances? If you have, then you are not alone. In fact, the story of Christmas includes one whose dreams, excitement, and plans were challenged to the very core.

  • When we speak of getting ready for Christmas it is usually deeds we are referring to --- getting decorations up, buying gifts, wrapping presents, baking and such.  But really we should be talking about attitudes, because that is the most important part of celebrating Christmas.

    What is your approach and atttude toward Christmas?  When people say, ‘I can’t seem to get into the Christmas spirit this year,’ they are really speaking of attitude.  In this column I’m talking about openness to the coming and doing of God in our lives.

  • “Do you love me? Why not serve me?” The well-known gospel lyrics of one of LaRue County’s own, Eddie Black. These are lyrics that Black lives by both in his music and his daily life.

    Black is one of LaRue Counties only historical preservationists. Black takes old historical buildings, and refurbishes them to their former glory. Black has a keen eye for detail, which makes him an excellent candidate for any job that comes his way. And the desire for his craft is apparent by his three-year wait-list.

  • If you are wondering if the Christmas Spirit still lives in LaRue County, just ask any member of Indiana University Southeast men’s basketball team.

    The Grenadiers were traveling on Highway 210 from their school in New Albany to play a game at Lindsey Wilson College on a cold, blustery November 13 when a fatal wreck closed that road and caused them to detour onto Highway 1192.

    On that narrow, winding road their bus slipped off the roadway and when it stopped, it was leaning precariously and threatening to careen on its side at any moment.

  • One common experience for all people is the reality of pain. Pain and suffering occur in many forms and fashions. There is the experience of physical pain from injury or disease. There is the emotional suffering in the loss of a loved one or a tragedy. There is the suffering and pain as a result of our wrong actions and struggles with others. Ultimately, pain and suffering exist due to the selfish sinful state of humanity.

  • America is a nation that has been abundantly blessed by our God.  We are daily recipients of the Lord’s blessings.  Of all the people in the world who thank God for His blessings, America should be the one doing the most thanking. But I’m sad to say that for too many in our land they do not possess a grateful heart.  The Psalmist says, “Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise.  Give thanks to Him, bless His name” (100:4).

  • A community wide cleanup effort will take place this Saturday, November 17 beginning at 8 a.m. at Creekfront Park in Hodgenville. Due to the recent flooding in the area, the park is in need a little extra help this holiday season.

    City workers have been hard at work removing limbs and tons of debris from the park and around the playground area, but the public is being asked to join together to remove the debris from the walking paths, around poles and benches throughout the park.
