  • Save on energy costs of Home Lighting, check out LED bulbs

    As the world strives to become more energy efficient, many are switching the type of bulbs used in the home from traditional incandescent to light emitting diodes commonly known as LEDs.

    According to the Consumer Federation of America, the average electricity cost of a single 60-watt equivalent incandescent bulb is around $5 per year, while the energy costs of a comparable LED are $1 dollar per year. Couple this with the fact that incandescent bulbs will need to be replaced every one or two years and LEDs should last around ten years or longer.

  • The Rock Fairy to visit CreekFront

    Rock painting, hunting and hiding have become a popular way for many LaRue Countians to spend their time. In Hodgenville, families can be seen downtown on the Square or at CreekFront Park walking around picking up little painted treasures at just about any point of the day.

    Some of these rocks have made their way all the way to New York and Florida. The LaRue County Library even set up a rock exchange, encouraging participants to bring in their painted rocks in exchange for others.
