If you don&rsquo;t know, the Mondays are that blue feeling that happens when reality sets in that the weekend is over. It usually happens when you&rsquo;ve had an awesome weekend that you don&rsquo;t want to end.</p> Lost in LaRue http://www.laruecountyherald.com/content/lost-larue-10 <img src="http://www.laruecountyherald.com/sites/www.laruecountyherald.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/firetraining089.jpg" alt="" title="" align="left" hspace="6" /><p> Haven&rsquo;t been out and about on a road trip in a while. I&rsquo;ll be honest friends, it&rsquo;s killing me. We did go on a road trip on the way to Gatlinburg recently. We avoided all the major highways and drove through all the little towns on our way through eastern Kentucky and Tennessee; it was wonderful. But on the way back, needing to get home quickly and prepare for the coming week of school and work, we rushed along the interstate with hundreds of other hurried travelers like ants dutifully marching toward their task.</p> Lost in LaRue http://www.laruecountyherald.com/content/lost-larue-9 <img src="http://www.laruecountyherald.com/sites/www.laruecountyherald.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/spirea.jpg" alt="" title="" align="left" hspace="6" /><p> I was out taking photos again for Discover LaRue. 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. The recipient this year was Reverend Kenny Carter, Sr.</p> Lost in LaRue http://www.laruecountyherald.com/content/lost-larue-7 <img src="http://www.laruecountyherald.com/sites/www.laruecountyherald.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/lost_in_larue_epic_cloud_battle.jpg" alt="" title="" align="left" hspace="6" width="128" height="85" /><p> Lost in LaRue http://www.laruecountyherald.com/content/lost-larue-6 <img src="http://www.laruecountyherald.com/sites/www.laruecountyherald.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/lost_in_larue_feb_17_horse.jpg" alt="Horse in the field on Hwy 470 near Hodgenville showing his “good side.”" title="Horse in the field on Hwy 470 near Hodgenville showing his “good side.”" align="left" hspace="6" width="128" height="85" /><p> Some road trips are planned out or at least I have a particular destination in mind, but occasionally a road trip transpires out of sheer happenstance. This particular trip was the latter.</p>
