Today's Opinions

  • Walking in perspective

    Seven years ago I went on my Chrysalis Walk. For those of you who don’t know what Chrysalis is, it’s a three-day non-denominational Christian retreat for high school students. The walk happens twice a year; once in the spring and once in the fall.

  • community news

    Reverend Scott Curle was the guest preacher at First Baptist in the absence of Reverend Wilkinson. The title of his sermon was “Fight.”

    Mildred Dorsey-Thompson will be had surgery on Tuesday. Christina Turner also had surgery recently and she is improving.

    Bobbi Curle, wife of Kenny Curle, will have surgery on Wednesday at Norton’s Hospital in Louisville. Everyone keep her in your prayers.

  • Changing of the leaves

    It has been an unusual and depressing year so far. I was talking with someone in the community who told me they had been to the funeral home seven different times for visitation of someone who died. It was upsetting to them because seven people they knew had passed away since the beginning of the month.

  • Outstanding Citizen

    ‘Donnie Propes was named the 2013 Outstanding Citizen of the Year and received a standing ovation from the packed room.’

    This is a line from the story that appeared in the May 14, 2013 edition of The LaRue County Herald News, following the annual meeting of the LaRue County Chamber of Commerce awards dinner.

    Last Friday on October 12, 2018, we lost one ‘Outstanding Citizen’ of LaRue County.

  • When Pappaw let me Drive

    We all have those songs that remind us of certain moments in our life, people in our life, etc. I have many of them myself, but one of the songs that has been replaying in my mind since Friday, October 5 is Alan Jackson’s “When Daddy Let Me Drive.”

    The song is written about the stories of a young child whose dad let them drive an old boat and old truck. Although the age of the young boy is never given in the song, the child was obviously way under the legal age to drive a vehicle.

  • Finding Happiness in Waiting

    “The course of my life is in your power.” – Psalm 31:15

  • Nothing like an escape

    We left out last Saturday to go to Columbus, Indiana to sing at church homecoming there on Sunday.

    For those of you who don’t know, my wife Danielle sings in a southern gospel group called “The Sextons.” They were all Sextons until Danielle married me and became a Ponder, throwing the whole group off haha.

  • Leadership LaRue Begins!

    Leadership LaRue 2018-19 has officially started, and I am more than excited! I’ve stated multiple times in the past that my main goal when moving to LaRue County was to become a part of it’s community, and so far I feel as if I’m doing a pretty good job of it. I have met numerous people in the community and have started to form real relationships with people. LaRue County has been more warm and welcoming than I could have hoped for.
