  • Six couples at Sunrise Manor Nursing Home celebrated Valentine’s Day with a Sweetheart Luncheon hosted by the Quality of Life and Medical Records Department.

The menu was pork tenderloin, hash brown casserole, green beans, macaroni and cheese, dinner roll and fancy cheesecake. The elders reminisced about their first dates or how they met.

    RELAY FOR LIFE: Famous Recipe Night

  • Our destiny for the afterlife is determined here and now on this earth while we are alive. Our only hope of heaven is dependent upon what we do with Jesus Christ.

    Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6). When we accept Christ as our savior, we make a reservation for heaven. Someone said, “Without Christ life is a hopeless end.”

  • History has had its share of feuding families — the Hatfields and McCoys, the Montagues and Capulets, the Ewings and Barnes.

    The Glen Rice family of Buffalo is hoping to be another feuding clan — this time, however, as participants in the Family Feud television program.

    His daughters – Tiffany Spratt, Teri Lynn Rice Dandy, Karen Michelle Ward – and wife, Peggy, were among the estimated 5,000 people who auditioned for the show Feb. 7 and 8 at the Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville.

  • The latest television commercial for Kentucky Farm Bureau features fall scenery, catchy guitar music and a soft, Southern voice saying, “All over Kentucky, people grow attached to certain things.”

    One by one, six smiling people show off garden gnomes, hubcaps, typewriters and stuffed animals.

    Much of the 30-second spot was filmed in LaRue County, features two LaRue Countians and was developed by a native LaRue Countian.
