  • News outlets have been overflowing with lots of interesting nutrition and health topics in the past few weeks.  In case you have missed some of the major headlines, here is an overview of what’s on the plate:

  • Abraham Lincoln invoked the phrase “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” The phrase referred to his belief that the nation could not survive without A solution to the question of slavery. Yet the Kentucky-born Lincoln might just as well have been talking about his in-laws.

    His wife Mary Todd was born into a slave-holding household in Lexington. Of her 13 siblings, eight of them were Confederate sympathizers. The “A House Divided” exhibit explores how their family’s statements and actions affected the Lincolns throughout the Civil War.

  • Candis Carpenter of Hodgenville has joined the staff of The LaRue County Herald News as an office assistant.
