    One after the other, like the measured meter of a metronome, Maude Meers reeled off the names, in order, of our nation’s first 32 presidents.

  • The University of Kentucky College of Agriculture’s Plant Disease Diagnostic Laboratory has diagnosed a number of cases of Diplodia Ear Rot this fall. While Diplodia is the most common ear rot of corn this is more than normal, but it isn’t surprising, given the weather conditions experienced this growing season.

  • Joel Ray Sprowls’ Lincoln Jamboree hosted an evening of Gospel singing. Proceeds were donated to the Newspapers in Education, which provides newspapers to LaRue County classrooms. The groups performing were the Heartland Quartet and Redeemed.
