  • Baptist Health La Grange got a jump-start on spring at the 4th Annual Hats for Hearts Derby Fashion Show and Hat Extravaganza earlier this week.

    Hospital employees will modeled the latest spring fashions provided by Dress Barn Springhurst, as well as employee-designed Derby hats.

    The hospital’s American Heart Association Walk Team hosts the event and funds earned from Derby hats sales will go to the Heart Walk. Closed bids will be accepted on the Derby hats starting the day of the event through noon on March 27.

  • Last Thursday, May 7, the Oldham County Ministerial Association hosted two prayer events, at noon at the La Grange Courthouse, and at 7 p.m. at the John Black Community Center.  Both were attended by the largest crowds we have had at such prayer events since the first National Day of Prayer event after 9/11.

  • Jo Ross has spent 48 years in the fashion industry learning the ins and outs of fast-paced runway shows, working internationally to produce shows in places such as Peru, Prague and Mexico, reporting on fashion for local newspapers and TV stations and curating costume exhibits for many local museums. In all that time she has learned a wealth of information she often shares with others through special programs relating to the textile industry.

  •   The 40 years leading up to the Revolutionary War was a time known as the First Great Awakening.  It was a time when the Holy Spirit moved through the 13 colonies like it did in Acts 2.  The spiritual courage and dedication to fight for freedom were forged.  One of its greatest preachers was George Whitfield, who also had a good friend, Ben Franklin.  A delightful story is told by Franklin, who was listening to Whitfield preach, and knew the appeal for an offering to support the orphanage in Georgia would come at the end of the sermon.

    We read in Romans 13:8a, “Let no debt remain outstanding.” We know about money, and way too much about debts. This verse reminds us to pay our bills, as if we need any help remembering that. Most of us will probably agree that not only do we know a lot about money, we probably think too much about money.
