The 4-H Poetry Contest is being held again this year. The contest is open to all LaRue County youth, ages 9 to 18. Each youth may enter one poem for the competition.
All poems must be submitted to the Extension office by Feb. 20. Most students have probably already written poems for school. Why not turn your best poem in to be judged? Teachers, you may even wish to require your students to participate in the poetry contest, or give extra credit for those students who participate.
It’s easy for us to think of this year’s tax refund as free money coming to us courtesy of Uncle Sam. However, the truth of the matter is that the check you receive is a return of your own hard earned money. And since you’re going to get your own money back, why not use it to get ahead of your financial goals?
The Circuit Court Clerks of Kentucky made 2014 a momentous year in the fight to save lives. With 998 Kentuckians on the waiting list for an organ transplant, there is no better time to join the Kentucky Organ Donor Registry.
In 2014, 103 individuals in Kentucky were able to save 332 lives, and many more individuals enhanced someone’s life or gave sight through tissue and cornea donation.
More than 124,000 patients are currently waiting for their organ transplant. Each day 21 patients lose their fight, and their lives, waiting.
Most people in Hodgenville are familiar with Rock and Rogers Service Station. The little green building sits on the corner of Lincoln Boulevard and Forrest Avenue. It’s been there for a long time, providing full service gas to customers.
A part of the business’s foundation is moving on, though. Jimmy Rogers, who has owned at least a portion of the business for the last 38 years, retired at the beginning of the year. All told, Rogers worked at the service station for over 40 years.
