  • Wreck on Bardstown Road - August 26
  • Lost in LaRue - August 26, 2015

    This week I got lost on the Rolling Fork River that winds through the countryside of LaRue, Nelson and Marion Counties. My husband wanted to take the kids on a canoe trip. So we recruited some help, Papaw John and Uncle Brian, and took the kids for a two-hour canoe trip. This was the first time for Samuel, our youngest son, to ride in a canoe. He threw a fit having to wear a life jacket. His fussiness soon subsided as the water and dappled light shining through the trees provided a calming effect on all of us.

Delays will be possible at this location, especially during peak travel hours.

    The bridge project is expected to take approximately three to four months for completion. Weather will be a factor in the pace of progress.

  • So... What are you doing for the next 40 years?

    Lincoln Days is right around the corner on October 3-4 and our office is abuzz with activity.

    While I was preparing this article, I stumbled across a program book from over forty years ago. You know what? Two of our current active volunteer board members were mentioned in the publication and a quick scan revealed a dozen (or more) names of people who are active participants during Lincoln Days weekend.
