  • Sponsorships being accepted for penny press

    The 2016-2017 Leadership LaRue class is currently taking sponsorships from businesses for a Lincoln Souvenir Penny Press.

    The cost of the one time contribution is $500 and includes the name of the business and logo that will be permanently placed on the front of the penny press.

    The penny press will be placed semi-permanently in the Lincoln Museum. Each time the press is used, the museum will receive 50 cents. The press will also travel to the LaRue County Chamber of Commerce booth once a year at the state fair.

    Our deepest sympathy goes to the families of Carl Pope who lost his brother in Atlanta and to David Jackson who lost his daughter both during last week.

    Let’s continue in prayer for the families that have lost loved ones due to various acts of violence, injuries, or sickness.

    Thought for the week: “It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.”

    Kentucky Wildcats advanced to the Elite 8, played North Carolina last Saturday and lost by 2 points. They had a great season and I am still a true blue fan. I sure will miss talking about the games on Facebook. We will have to choose who to cheer for in the Final Four and talk about those games.

    Congratulations to Robin Brussels on being chosen March Employee of the Month for Nationwide Uniform.
