The LaRue County Chamber of Commerce is busy making plans for our annual Trick-or-Treat on Lincoln Square. This community event is a great opportunity for our community businesses or organizations. Your participation is the key to making this year’s event a success.
Kristie Allen benefit
A benefit for the Kristie Allen family will be Oct. 19 at the LaRue County Fairgrounds. Bluegrass Express will perform. Proceeds will go towards Kristie’s burial expenses.

Almost any item that is too large to be picked up by weekly trash service will be accepted, including appliances, scrap metal, old cars, car parts, bulky items, furniture, computers and monitors, fax machines, cell phones and other e-scrap. Vehicle, equipment and appliance batteries will also be accepted at no charge.
In May the Boy Scouts of America hosted its national annual conference in Grapevine, Texas, where thousands of Scout and Cub Masters flocked to hear reports on the impact BSA had during the 2012-13 year.
The conference also resulted in an update in the BSA participant acceptance policy, allowing boys with homosexual attributes to continue to participate or join BSA troops on a national scale.
Like most farm animals, chickens are labeled according to their end purpose.
A chicken bred for its egg-laying prowess is a “layer.” A chicken bred for plumpness – large drumsticks and breast – is a “broiler.” They grow faster, reaching slaughter weight between two and three months of age. They behave and walk differently – and spend more time lying down than their layer counterparts.
