  • Gearing up for January

    With blustery winds and snow flurries sweeping the Commonwealth, it’s clear that the holiday season is upon us.  Meanwhile, the members of the General Assembly continue to be hard at work holding interim joint committee meetings in Frankfort and throughout the state as we approach the start of the 2019 Regular Session in January.

  • Rest in the Lord

    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.

  • Let Us Give Thanks

    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).

  • Chainsaw Safety for Storm Cleanup

    Hopefully we’re all thawed out by now from the big ice storm last week and we now are able to begin the clean-up process for getting rid of these downed trees. Seems like there are many trees that took this storm pretty hard, mainly Bradford Pears, River Birch, and White Pine.

  • Get the most from firewood investment

    Many LaRue County residents burn firewood as their main source of heat or to supplement heat pumps throughout the winter. With all of the storm clean up over the next few weeks, there will be lots of firewood out there.

    It is very important that you pay attention to what you buy or sell to use for indoor heating. To gain the most from your investment, pay attention to the seasoning, density and quantity of firewood.
