  • Trash For Cash

    Dear Editor,

    We recently participated in a Trash For Cash cleanup project on some of our rural county roads as a fundraiser for upcoming missions trips.

    I am sharing this letter to voice concern about the ongoing issue of “littering” on the God given land we have been called to care for. I am speaking of the increasing amounts of garbage that is seen on the sides of the road.

    Which would you rather see? Tree-lined fence rows with blooming wild flowers or someone’s fast food containers, cardboard boxes, and liquor bottles/cans?

  • For Sale: One Election Date

    by Cody McDowell 


    For the low, low price of $10,000 you too can influence an election. Not by running ads or placing signs in your Aunt’s front yard but by shaping the potential number of people who will vote in the election.

  • Try a small scale garden this year

    With more people living in urban areas, many think they do not have the space to garden. A new publication from the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service: “Gardening in Small Spaces”, describes how you can garden in a limited area.

  • Larue County Choir Trash For Cash

    Dear Editor,

    On Saturday March 3, LaRue County Choir members participated in the fundraiser “Trash for Cash Program”.

    The choir students were very excited to participate in such a positive, rewarding fundraiser that is able to enhance our community but also gives them more bonding time. Several students and parent representatives of the LaRue County High School Choir came together that morning. They were divided into four large teams and were able to pick up ten miles of trash in their community to help our current choral program.

  • People haven’t changed

    For my daily Bible reading, I have been reading the book of Acts for the past couple of weeks.

    The book is mainly about the spread of Christianity and the missionary travels of Apostle Paul as he spreads the news of Jesus Christ. It has been more interesting to me as I want to see the new movie “Paul, Apostle of Christ.”
