It was a cloudy day and the wind was whipping across LaRue County looking for an unprepared reporter to turn into an icicle; I forgot my jacket that morning. It was one of those famous Kentucky mornings that start out deceivingly warm and then the temperature begins to drop.</p> Lost in LaRue http://www.laruecountyherald.com/content/lost-larue-8 <img src="http://www.laruecountyherald.com/sites/www.laruecountyherald.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/dsc_0036.jpg" alt="" title="" align="left" hspace="6" /><p> I was headed south on New Jackson Highway for a last minute interview with a fabric shop. I love fabric, so I was already pretty happy about the opportunity. The sun was shining and everything was showing that glorious fresh green of early spring. A purple field caught my attention so I turned around and parked my car to take some photos. I think the weed in the field is called henbit. I&rsquo;m sure it is some kind of nuisance, but it was absolutely stunning against the bright blue sky. I snapped some pictures and headed on to my destination.</p> Black History Citizen of the Year http://www.laruecountyherald.com/content/black-history-citizen-year <img src="http://www.laruecountyherald.com/sites/www.laruecountyherald.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/index.jpg" alt="Pictured are the late Dolvinia Watson who passed away last October, Ella Doepp, Frankie, Reverend Carter and Chester and Sue Williamson." title="Pictured are the late Dolvinia Watson who passed away last October, Ella Doepp, Frankie, Reverend Carter and Chester and Sue Williamson." align="left" hspace="6" width="128" height="85" /><p> LaRue County Black History Citizen of the Year Reverend Kenny Carter</p> <p> After a year absence, I was excited to continue the LaRue County Black History Citizen of the Year.

This particular trip was the latter.</p> Lost in LaRue http://www.laruecountyherald.com/content/lost-larue-4 <img src="http://www.laruecountyherald.com/sites/www.laruecountyherald.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/lost_in_larue_use.jpg" alt="Salem Lake on Tuesday, January 19 before Winter Storm Jonas" title="Salem Lake on Tuesday, January 19 before Winter Storm Jonas" align="left" hspace="6" width="132" height="85" /><p> Sometimes you just have a hunch; you can&rsquo;t explain it but something tells you to veer from your normal path and see what lies ahead in the other direction. One such hunch came over me last week on my way to work. I was running late and was just going to take the quickest route to Hodgenville from home, Hwy 31E. But something was telling me to turn off on Salem Church Road. Maybe it was my lack of acceptance that it was indeed production day after a long weekend with Monday off, but I followed my instincts and took the long way to work.</p> Four U.S. Representatives buried in Red Hill http://www.laruecountyherald.com/content/four-us-representatives-buried-red-hill <img src="http://www.laruecountyherald.com/sites/www.laruecountyherald.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/img_1014.jpg" alt="" title="" align="left" hspace="6" width="64" height="85" /><p> By Ron Sanders</p> <p> Guest Columnist</p> Lost in LaRue - July 8, 2015 http://www.laruecountyherald.com/content/lost-larue-july-8-2015 <img src="http://www.laruecountyherald.com/sites/www.laruecountyherald.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/dscn5535.jpg" alt="Corn tasseling on U.S. 31E just north of Hodgenville." title="Corn tasseling on U.S. 31E just north of Hodgenville." align="left" hspace="6" width="113" height="85" /><p> I love a good road trip. Not the driving across the country kind of road trip, I prefer to get lost in back roads that meander through the county-side. I enjoy finding off the beaten path sights and can&rsquo;t resist turning down a road I haven&rsquo;t traveled. Now that I&rsquo;m working in LaRue County I&rsquo;m eager to learn all about it and one of the first things I want to do is get &ldquo;Lost in LaRue.&rdquo; Join me on my adventures as I take pictures of places and people and write about my findings.</p> <p> For more, follow us on Instagram @lostinlarue&nbsp;</p>
