    Thought for the week: The person who tries to keep everyone happy and always cares for everyone is always the loneliest person. Strange but true.

    Last Saturday, we met brother Dale, Judy and Josh LaFollette  from Florence, brother Danny LaFollette from Shepherdsville, niece Brittany LaFollette, great niece Addie LaFollette, Austin Strothoff, Yvonne LaFollette all from Elizabethtown at Golden Corral for a mini family get together. It was nice to see everyone.
