  • Thought for the week: Nine things to remember when you don’t feel supported.

    1. You can’t please everyone, 2. You are your number one priority, 3. You don’t owe anyone anything, 4. Your dreams matter

    5. It’s okay if they don’t understand, 6. Some people are just insecure and don’t believe, 7. No one can predict the future of your life, 8. You don’t need anyone’s permission and 9. You are the only one who has to be okay with the decision you make.

  • Thought for the week: Life comes around once, so do whatever makes you happy and be with whoever makes you smile.

  • As I drove throughout the county with my mother Mary Smith and aunt Arneva Smith, I visited Mount Salem Baptist Church during their annual homecoming services on July 10. The church is located near three county lines, LaRue, Hart and Green Counties.

    When we arrived on the church grounds we were greeted with smiles, handshakes and hugs from the congregation. Mount Salem is a small community that consist of friendly people that demonstrated love, compassion and fellowship.

  • It has been a busy summer at the LaRue County Chamber of Commerce. We thank everyone who visited and volunteered at our booth at the Kentucky State Fair. It is a huge undertaking and would not be possible without the continuous support from our chamber members and community volunteers.

    We also thank our Lincoln sponsors: Fort Knox Federal Credit Union, LaRue-Carey Insurance Group and Blazin Xpressions. Our Lincoln presenters included: Mr. Jim Sayre and Mr. Larry Elliott as Abraham Lincoln and Mrs. Mary Elliott as Mary Todd Lincoln.
