  • The ability to remember is a wonderful gift God has given us. Some memories cause us to laugh, while others cause us to weep. Memories are also very practical. If we could not remember that a red light means "stop" we would be in trouble.

    But the problem is that sometimes our memory fails us. Sometimes we forget. There are events we should never forget. Memorial Day commemorates some of them.

  •  Allison Shepherd, right, general manager of The LaRue County Herald News, presented a check for $375 to Kathy Ross, Survivor chairperson for LaRue County Relay for Life. The newspaper collected donations for “in memory of” and “in honor of” ads for those who have battled cancer.

  •  May is Better Speech and Hearing Month across America and in the spirit of awareness and hearing health, the National Hearing Test (www.nationalhearingtest.org) is offering free hearing screenings during the entire month.

  •  Information in credit reports is used not only by car dealers, but also in buying a house, obtaining credit and debit cards, and opening bank accounts. Potential landlords may deny you an apartment based on your credit report, insurance companies often base the amount you must pay in premiums on your creditworthiness and even possible employers use information in your credit report when making hiring decisions. It’s best to know what is in your report.

  •  The Fort Knox Warriors in Transition Association has received a $150,000 donation that will help provide free lodging for families visiting their wounded warriors at Fort Knox.

    Warriors in Transition Association Montana members donated the money after meeting members of the local group and hearing about their plans to transform the St. George House at Fort Knox into a guesthouse for family members of Warrior Transition Battalion soldiers.

  •  As an all-star cheerleader for eight years, Sydney Dobson applied to the University of Kentucky because it was her dream to make the nation’s best cheerleading team. It was the only school she applied to.

    Dobson, a 2011 LaRue County High school graduate, didn’t make the team, but that’s where her perseverance and attitude took over. One of her first moves was to join the Student Activities Board. It was also through SAB that the next chapter of her story unfolded.
