  • 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.

  • Last weekend was one of the biggest events of the year. On the weekend, the Cobb Family Reunion is an annual event open to the community. Many family and friends travel from afar to attend this event. This leads up Sunday’s homecoming at First Baptist. For many years, the Church anniversary was always on the fourth Sunday in May and just the homecoming. This would have been the 88th Homecoming, but since both days have important history and tradition, the church decided to combine the two. This is the third year for the occasion.

  • This past Sunday was the 69th Usher Day at First Baptist Elizabethtown. The guest morning speaker was Reverend Harold Craig, Jr., Pastor of Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church in Radcliff. First Baptist Hodgenville and Morning Star Ushers were in attendance. This Thursday at 6 p.m. will be choir rehearsal at First Baptist.

    Thought for Today: Faith is not the belief that God will do what you want. It is the belief that God will do what is right.

  • Thought for the day: Friendship adds a brighter radiance to prosperity and lightens the burden of adversity by dividing and sharing it.

    2017 Kentucky State Fair is in full swing. On Monday, August 21, cousin Rosetta LaFollette and I worked the LaRue County Chamber of Commerce Booth. I love doing this and it was my third year I think.

    Thinking of you wishes go out to Harlis and Bessie LaFollette, Helen Duncan, Donald Atteberry, William Wilkerson, Delmes Johnson, Tim Speakman, Karen Nichols, Tommy Wright, Autumn Joiner-Smith and Quinn and Chevy Carroll.

  • Year after year, conservation officers in Kentucky go to work in the woods and on the waters of the Commonwealth, in an effort to protect not only the natural resources, but also its citizens.

    Throughout the summer while the troopers, deputies, and city police patrol our streets and interstates, conservation officers assume their mantle as Kentucky’s primary law enforcement agency on the water. Recreational boating may be a fun and exciting way to spend a day or weekend, but let’s not forget that across the nation boaters are tragically killed every year.

  • 4-H Cooking Club

    The 4-H Cooking Club will meet from 2:30 to 5 p.m. on Friday, August 25 at the LaRue County Extension Office.
