    Thought for the week: When you are down to nothing. God is up to something!

    Another LaRue County Fair has come and gone. We didn’t make it out and the weather was just too hot. At least we didn’t have rain like we usually do. Congratulations to Daniel Skaggs on winning the Karaoke contest. Saturday night we went to Ryan Ray’s graduation party at the Pritchard Community Center in Elizabethtown. It was well attended. I got to learn a new dance thanks to DJ Jimmy and it was a lot of fun.
