  • 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.

  • We have just celebrated a very important day in the life of our nation – Mother’s Day. There is a saying, “As goes the home, so goes the nation.”   

    Who is central in the home? Mother.

    Proverbs 31 was read in many churches last Sunday honoring mothers. It gives the description of a worthy woman. Ephesians 6 tells us to honor our mothers and this is not just one day out of the year, but daily. Mothers set the tone of the home.

  • 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.
