  • #1 Reason why I’ll never be a doctor

    I have one more week as an intern under the Kentucky Press Association at the LaRue County Herald News. Over the last 9 weeks, I have written almost 20 articles, driven hundreds of miles, and talked to several people in LaRue County. I have learned a lot, but I think one of the pivotal moments was learning patience for my growth and myself.

  • Music to your soul

    We had a great weekend as we attended the Kentucky Southern Gospel Music Singing Convention last Friday and Saturday in Cave City.

    We listened to some great music, got to spend time with family and friends, and my grandfather Dell Ponder, from Rockcastle County stayed all night with us so he could go to the singing on both nights. We really enjoyed him staying with us. I think he enjoyed it too.

  • Celebrating Independence Day

    Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are the values on which our great nation was founded. Written in the Declaration of Independence, these words ring true for all Americans and have held fast for more than two centuries.  Ratified on July 4, 1776, the Declaration has long been held in the hearts of the American people as a source of hope and inspiration to protect the freedoms we hold so dear.

  • The Gift that keeps on Giving

    My family is generous almost to a fault. They love giving things away whether you want it, or need it, or would have absolutely no use for it. They have brought me up to be the same way. I even hear on multiple occasions that my wife and I are the best gift givers in our families. I only tell them, “I get it from my mom.” I love you mom.

    Mom. Mammaw. There’s no need for you to read past this point. The article is over and everything beyond this point is filler. It doesn’t pertain to you one bit. So both of you can stop reading right now.

  • Sanders retires with greatest goal achieved

    When Sam Sanders was named superintendent of LaRue County Schools 16 years ago, he set out to help make our school district one of the best in Kentucky.

    As he took the helm in 2002, LCS ranked 131st of 176 school districts. Today, as Sanders finishes his last month with LCS and prepares to retire as one of the state’s longest serving superintendents, I’m in awe of how much our district has accomplished during his tenure.

  • Keep On Keeping On

    I have been trying to write a column for the newspaper the past couple of weeks and I have simply not been able to do it.

    Since my mom passed away in April, everything has been difficult. Trying to focus on my everyday responsibilities, trying to focus at work and pretty much just trying to focus on anything period has all been difficult.

    I am no stranger to this as I went through it when my dad died when I was ten years old. The only difference now is I have a lot more responsibilities and school has been replaced with work.
