  • Did you know that children today are in danger of having shorter life spans than their parents? And did you know that danger exists at least partially because of children's unhealthy daily activities?

  • Many people feel disappointed with life. They search for fulfilment and satisfaction, only to find emptiness and disappointment. In despair some turn to alcohol, drugs and even suicide.

    Why is all this so? Most of the time it is because they have not found what most want in life - love and acceptance, meaning and purpose. Many bars have "happy hours." If truthful, they would call it "the unhappy hour." Everyone present is not happy. Some are trying to fill a void in their life. Fame, success and money can't satisfy the deep longings in the heart.

  • The 4-H Poetry Contest is being held again this year. The contest is open to all LaRue County youth, ages 9 to 18. Each youth may enter one poem for the competition.
    All poems must be submitted to the Extension Office by Feb. 4.
    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.
