  • Jamboree fan

    It has been a long time since I went to the Lincoln Jamboree.

    My family and I went Saturday night and it was great. Rick Whitlock and Blake Whitlock were wonderful (a few Johnny Cash songs). Joel Ray needed a haircut but that didn’t stop his jokes. And the price was just $8. Movies are $8 and you only get half the fun.

    At intermission, there was soft ice cream and the singers sold tapes and gave interviews.

    Thank you, Joel Ray, for the memories. I wish you would bring the raffle back at intermission.

  • Jaden's Day a success

    We want to thank everyone who had a part in making Jaden’s Day 2010 Celebration a success. We raised and donated $1,000 to the Ronald McDonald House.

    A special thanks to Lee’s Famous Recipe for their donation of cole slaw for our plate dinners we sold and for The LaRue County Herald News for sharing our story about Jaden.

  • Be safe this harvest season

    Accidents are often preventable. With the fall harvest underway, let’s be careful and prevent accidents and tragedies from happening. Harvest season is a busy time for farmers and it is a peak season for agricultural injuries.  Consider the following safety tips.

    • Be sure all workers are trained and physically capable of operating equipment and understand the safety procedures. Take time to talk to workers about safety.

  • State furlough days affect county offices

    State-mandated furloughs will affect closures of state and local government offices.

    At the Aug. 24 session of LaRue County Fiscal Court, LaRue County Judge/Executive Tommy Turner said all state offices will be closed Sept. 3, Nov. 12 and May 27, 2010.

    The LaRue County Clerk’s office will be open half day Sept. 1, all day Friday and closed Saturday and Monday.

    Turner expected more office closures as the other dates approach, saying circuit court, property valuation and other offices likely will shut down during those days as well as other county offices.
