  • There is a renewed interest in better health as evidenced by the emphasis on health clubs and exercise and better eating habits. There seems to be a desire to get fit and stay fit. Paul tells us that God bought us and we are not our own so we are to glorify him in our bodies (1 Corinthians 6:19-20).

    If we stay as fit as possible we will live a better life and be able to serve God more effectively. God put us here primarily to love and serve him.

  • Winners will represent The LaRue County Herald News in the Lincoln Days Parade in October – and receive a prize packet. One girl and one boy will be selected based on the number of votes.

    All poems must be submitted to the Extension office by Feb. 20. Most students have probably already written poems for school. Why not turn your best poem in to be judged? Teachers, you may even wish to require your students to participate in the poetry contest, or give extra credit for those students who participate.
