  • Kentucky Virtual Library: For students, professionals, and the average Joe

    If someone asked me what Kentucky Virtual Library (KYVL) is, it would be a hard question to answer. I could say it’s a free resource offered by our library. That’s true, but this would be inadequate to explain the scope and depth of KYVL. That is what I will attempt to explain to you in this article because, once I do, you will more than likely find something useful to you personally.

  • Something new

    Monday afternoon, my brain was mush. This isn’t unusual; at the newspaper, Monday is production day, which means the whole day is, as Editor Doug Ponder likes to say, “a big puzzle.”

    No, what made this Monday unusual was that it was my last production day The LaRue County Herald News. To wake myself up, I decided to do something I had been planning to do for a while, and drove down to Lincoln’s General Store to get myself a Double Cola.

  • Community News

    First Baptist Buffalo had their baptism services on Sunday morning at First Baptist in Hodgenville. Also, at Lane Lincoln there was a birthday dinner for Roberta Hayden who was 91 on Monday, March 19. Many family and friends, and church family were present to celebrate her birthday. She is one of the oldest members at Lane Lincoln.

    The South District Gospel Music Fest will be on this Saturday at First Baptist Church in Danville. With Reverend Jerry Wilkinson, President of the Sunday School and BTU and Reverend Tommy Calhoun, Moderator.

  • Hodgenville News

    As we draw closer to the end of the 2018 Regular Session, there has been no shortage of movement on significant bills in Frankfort this week. The Senate Appropriations and Revenue Committee has spent several days and some late nights working on the Senate’s budget proposal, which we expect to go before the committee soon.

  • Ramblings about gun control

    I have been thinking about writing my column on several topics the last couple of weeks, but I never built up the courage to do it, until now.

    I am still floored by all of the recent school shootings. I’m going to save ink and not give my “formal” opinion about the gun control issue. I have written about it before and those who read my columns or know me, already know my opinion.

  • Watch your mouth

  • Bring on 2018

    Another holiday season is in the books as Christmas and New Year’s Eve have already passed and we are now into a new year.

    On the night of New Year’s Eve and the days leading up to it, I kept thinking about the irony of the holiday. Of course, the holiday’s theme song is “Auld Lang Syne.” I always wondered what the meaning of the song was, so I researched it online and was left more confused than I was before I started researching.

  • The problem with science

    I am rested and recharged after going on a Christmas vacation with my wife last week. We went to the Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky last Wednesday. We then went to Tennessee to spend the rest of the week in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.

    I had been looking forward to seeing the Ark since it opened. It was everything I expected and more.
