“It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better place that I go to than I have ever known.” Would reading this final line from A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens compel you to read this piece of classic literature for the first time?
What about this first line from The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner? “Through the fence, between the curling flower spaces, I could see them hitting.” So many time-honored books to choose from at the library.

Vitamin D has gotten a lot of media coverage lately as various studies have tied normal levels of vitamin D to certain health benefits and lack of the vitamin to certain diseases. While many of these current studies provide conflicting messages, it is generally understood that vitamin D is needed for optimal health. It helps us absorb calcium and phosphorus, so we can have strong bones and teeth.
Sarah Sullivan of Rockfield and Richard Gomez of Hodgenville were married May 3, 2014, at Shaker Village at South Union.

The bride is the daughter of L.J. and Jane Sullivan of Rockfield. She earned a bachelor’s degree in 2012 from Campbellsville University, and will graduate in May 2015 with a master’s degree in social science.
