  • 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.

    Unfortunately, as we discovered during a legislative meeting earlier this month, there are still some who are either unaware of what is available or who have become mired in bureaucracy. The good news is that, thanks to the Kentucky Department of Veterans Affairs (KDVA), we are making great strides in closing these twin gaps.
