  • Students visit state, national capitol

    LaRue County High School junior Lindsey Shelton and seventeen other local high school juniors traveled to Frankfort on April 27, as part of their participation in the annual Nolin RECC Washington Youth Tour contest activities.

  • Changing the status quo

    LaRue County High School students Marissa Kappel and Symone Whalin want to change the status quo of women-to-men ratio in technology jobs.

    Whalin, a junior, and sophomore Kappel are two of only five females who, over the past 10 years at LCHS, have been involved in the Help Desk where they and their male classmates service the school’s computers.

  • With all thine heart

    Carolyn Smith here, George’s wife.  I asked permission of the editor to allow me to pre-empt my husband’s column this week in order to tell his readers that May 20 was the 60th anniversary of his ordination to the Gospel ministry.

    Eli is our second child; to say he’s energetic would be an understatement. He is lightning in a bottle, wrapped in a warm hug and decorated with Optimis Prime and Angry Birds.

    He loves to draw, loves school and he knows no strangers. He friends with everyone. He recently ‘graduated’ from kindergarten. His school had a Kindergarten promotion ceremony where the students got up on stage, received an award for what they do best, then came back up later for their little diplomas. Each child got to dress up as what they wanted to be when they grow up.

    I have been amazed by a new phase that is taking over the standard yard sales and those are pallet sales.

    I discovered this new phenomenon when visiting family back in my hometown of Brodhead and Rockcastle County. My mom and several people in my family hit them up often and have bought a lot of different stuff from them.

    It’s really sparked my interest and being naturally curious, I have been doing some research on how these pallet sales work.
