  • 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’t resist turning down a road I haven’t traveled. Now that I’m working in LaRue County I’m eager to learn all about it and one of the first things I want to do is get “Lost in LaRue.” Join me on my adventures as I take pictures of places and people and write about my findings.

  • Thought for the week: One small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day.

    Out and about in Hodgenville: Congratulations to Jimmy and Janis Rogers on their 50th wedding anniversary.

    On July 25, I spent the day with good friend Daphne Hatcher in Campbellsville; we ate out at Creek Side. Happened to run into friends Mike and Jean Judd, and it was so great to see them. I talked to Carrie Kidd over the weekend, who told me her brother, Eugene DeSpain of Gray, Tenn., had died on July 17.

  • Saturday afternoon at Sunrise Manor, the Rev. George Nelson and Pleasant Run Baptist Church was the guest.

    Everyone really enjoyed the songs of praise and the inspiring words from the Rev. Nelson. The Rev. James Barleston, retired, visited First Baptist Church on Sunday with his wife and daughter. He recently retired as pastor of Maple Street Baptist Church, Somerset, and is former moderator of the South District and Auxiliaries.

  • Although single-load laundry detergent packets have been on the market since 2012, children and even some senior citizens continue to be exposed to and poisoned by them.
