  • Ireland recognized for writing, photography

    Linda Ireland, editor of The LaRue County Herald News, was recognized by parent company LCNI in the annual editorial contest.
    Ireland took first in Column Writing for “Linda’s Lines.” The judges said, “Ireland connects with readers through personal accounts of her life experiences. The columns flow well because of the way she deals with the subject matter, but also because of things readers probably don’t notice – such as sentence length and structure. All of it blends together nicely for columns worthy of a first place award.
