    Happy New Year to each and everyone.

    Arneva Smith remains a patient at Hardin Memorial Hospital. She’s slowly improving. Darrell Williams and his mother, Lila Williams, Kristi Breckenridge, Grayling Smith and Linda Andrews have the flu; Henry Miller was admitted to Hardin Memorial Hospital on Saturday. There is a lot of sickness in the community. To each and everyone, take care of yourself, get plenty of rest and drink plenty of liquids and wash your hands often.

  • So here we are in the first full week of 2015. Do you wonder how we will do this year?

    Will we make good use of our time? At the end of the year will we look back with joy or regret?

    Paul gives some help in Ephesians 5:15-17. “Therefore, be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.”

  • The LaRue County High School Speech and Drama program is teaming up with the Kelly Dean Sanders Fund to present Dinner and a Show to raise funds for both programs.

    On Feb. 8, community members will get an opportunity to have a great meal and see the LCHS production of Neil Simon’s Rumors for a $15 donation. All the profits will be split between the two programs.

  • Charles Lee Nunn, longtime community correspondent and contributor to The LaRue County Herald News, passed away Feb. 2, 2014, after a battle with cancer.

    “Charlie” as he was known to his friends, family and customers at Roanoke Food Mart, wrote the Roanoke Community News and contributed recipes for his own column, “Charlie’s Chomps.”

    Every year, Charlie would prepare candy and share it with the newspaper staff. We certainly missed the candy – but we miss his smiling face even more.

  • Each year at this time, The LaRue County Herald News runs a wrap of the top stories of the previous 12 months.

    A quick glance at headlines shows that much of the coverage involved alleged wrong-doing of several county and city officials. Unfortunately, most of it will continue into 2015.

    With that sobering thought in mind, we have decided, rather than rehashing topics that are so painful to many, to spotlight four LaRue Countians we believe have contributed to our county’s success in 2014.

  • Bob Jennings doesn’t believe in rushing into things.

    He credits that tendency against making hasty decisions as a key reason for his marriage to his childhood sweetheart, the former Nadine Riddle, lasting more than 65 years.

    “Too many people meet each other and get married right away without really knowing each other,” Bob, 84, declared. “Nadine and I dated for two years, and during that time, we got to know not only each other, but each other’s family as well as that also is very important.”
