  • Thought for the week:

    Someone once asked me how I hold my head up so high after all I’ve been through, I said, it’s because no matter what, I am a survivor not a victim. 

    This will be hardest column I have had to write in the 20 plus years I have been writing for the paper. 

  • The LCHS Speech and Drama program is once again teaming up with the Kelly Dean Sanders Fund to present Dinner and a Show to raise funds for both programs. On December 9 community members will get an opportunity to have a great meal and see the LCHS Production of Christmas Belles for a $20 donation. All the profits will be split between the two programs.

  • 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.
