A retirement reception was held May 8 for Linda Ireland, editor of The LaRue County Herald News. Linda began her tenure with Landmark in the mid-1990s, worked as a correspondent several years and became editor in 2001. She worked also with the newspaper when it was owned by the McDonald family. She was surprised by a visit from Meat Loaf impersonator and longtime friend, Colonel Perkins. Colonel belted out “Hot Patootie” from the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
In doing some online research not long ago, I ran across this article that I would like to pass on to you. It has some suggestions that might help all patrons of the LaRue County Public Library. I always need suggestions to keep me organized and thought you might too.
“Keep Track of Library Books and Avoid Fines” comes from www.lifeyourway.net. I hope you will find at least one suggestion easy for you to implement as we approach a busy – and hopefully pleasant – summer.
