  • Sunrise residents show artwork online

    Residents at Sunrise Manor have brought out their artistic sides, creating pieces that are on display for public viewing in the facility’s first-ever art gallery.

    “In a nursing home facility residents often feel like there are things that they can’t do and that’s what we are trying to get away from as a company. We want to be able to help residents do what they want to do – to help them understand that there’s a lot of life still yet to live,” said Sally Rineker, Quality of Life director at Sunrise Manor.

  • Juneteenth was a success

    What started as a whisper of hope ended in a shout of joy in 1865 when freedom came, and that same enthusiasm swept LaRue County on Sunday, June 16, when celebrants gathered to remember that blessed news once again. And what better place to recall the original announcement of freedom than the “Cradle of Emancipation” where the noble ideas of freedom were born along with the noble man who would suffer martyrdom to achieve them.

  • Walking horse show will benefit historic horse barn

    The Bluegrass Walking Horse Association will host a two-day horse show at the LaRue County Fairgrounds.

    Arlene Gray, who is helping to organize the event, said a portion of the proceeds from the Aug. 17-18 show would be used to renovate the 1907 horse barn at the fairgrounds.

    “It is an awesome barn,” said Gray. “It wouldn’t take much to restore it ... you walk in there and you feel like you’re in a horse barn.”
