Mrs. Kentucky America Kristi Gowen Riggs visited last week with the owners of My Gal Boutique and MAM Candy.
Riggs was there – in gown and tiara – to film a promotion for Sunday’s benefit fashion show at LaRue County High School. The fashion show was sponsored in part by the businesses.
Riggs, a LaRue County native and 1995 graduate of the high school, was unable to attend the event, which benefited the school’s Youth Service Center, but said she would “be there in spirit.”

Nine out of 10 colon cancers may be prevented or cured if detected early.
The brain is an amazing organ. It controls all bodily functions, all organs, thoughts, emotions, memory and ability to be self-aware. Like other body parts, it is natural for the brain to lose some its sharpness; but it can deteriorate even more if you do not take care of it.
The Hosparus Thrift Shoppe in Elizabethtown is selling new and gently used formal dresses for the approaching prom season. The Shoppe recently received a donation of new dresses, sizes 8-24, in a variety of styles and colors and they are $20 each. The Shoppe is accepting donations of new and gently used formalwear.
Moira Taylor, Shoppe manager, encourages donations of last season's dresses. "It's a great way to recycle a dress that can't be worn again and it will help a great cause," she said. Donations of tuxedos are also welcome.
