In 2013, I was asked to be a part of Leadership Larue County. When the class started they guaranteed us that we would learn something about the town we lived in. I’ll be honest, I thought that was impossible since I was born and raised here. Ironically, I ended up learning many things I never knew, but the thing that stuck with me the most was the sense of civic duty that I felt.
A Bi-weekly Dance will be held from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, June 19, at LaRue Senior Citizens Center in Hodgenville. The Prime Time Band will be performing. Admission is $4.00 per person. For more information call Jim Walter at 270-737-5655 or 270-766-4437.

From canning on a wood stove in the Homemakers club to cooking with a microwave oven, Nancy Raine has experienced many changes in her lifetime. Her love of history, diligence and generosity have lead to a wealth of valuable resources for those seeking to research family history in LaRue County.
Raine was born and raised on a farm on Stiles Ford Road; her parents were George Welby Bell and Mary Elizabeth Bell.
When she reached school age she attended a one-room schoolhouse.
