  • 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: Sometimes when things are falling apart they may actually be falling into place.

    I am not fond of early deadlines because there is hardly anything to report. I don’t see what the big issue is to have “In God We Trust” put on our police cruisers. I think that is what is needed in all communities. We need to turn back to God in these troubling times the whole country is going thru, just my thoughts.
