• More than a festival

    I thoroughly enjoyed attending and covering my first Lincoln Days Celebration this year. I also enjoyed getting to see a lot of my family and friends who traveled from eastern Kentucky to attend Lincoln days. Overall, it was a great weekend.

    If you had seen me out and about roaming around with my camera during the event, it wouldn’t have taken you long to figure out that I was new to the whole idea of Lincoln Days. To me, Lincoln Days was different than any other festival or event I have ever attended in the state. It didn’t take me long to realize that fact.

  • Impact of aerospace aviation on the Kentucky

    Most Kentuckians know that the commonwealth plays a major role in the auto industry. In fact, only two states produce more cars and trucks than we do, but far fewer are likely aware that our work in aerospace and aviation has overtaken it.

    Last year, that industry accounted for nearly $8 billion in exports, topping the $5.9 billion generated by our auto parts and assembly factories. Overall, about half of everything that Kentucky ships beyond our borders ultimately goes toward moving people and products over the ground and in the air.

  • All humbling, no exalting...

    I had the privilege to attend and cover the Luke 14 event held in Hodgenville last Saturday.

    For those of you who haven’t heard or read, the event was held to honor people with disabilities as well as their families and caretakers. The event featured games, activities and entertainment by people with a wide variety of disabilities.

  • How I became a 'former' city girl

    Prior to my parents moving to Kentucky and eventually New Haven, my experience outdoors consisted of playing in our small yard, riding my bike up and down the sidewalk in front of our house as well as picnicking and hiking in the Metro Parks in Cleveland, Ohio. We would also go on camping trips to Kentucky; that’s when my parents fell in love with this state.

  • Help your children eat healthier

    As with many adults, getting kids to eat healthier is easier said than done. Here are some tips and tricks to help you get your family eating more nutritious foods.

    · Allow children to help with the preparation of meals. When they do, allow them to create fun shapes with food. Children are more likely to eat what they prepare.

    · Add vegetables to existing meals. For example, add lettuce to sandwiches. Add fruits like strawberries, blueberries and bananas to breakfast cereals and oatmeal.

  • A busy summer at the Chamber

    By Krista Levee

    The LaRue County Chamber of Commerce again this year participated in the Pride of the Counties booth at the Kentucky State Fair. We want to thank everyone who visited and volunteered during the 10 day event. It is a huge undertaking and it would not be possible without the continuous support from our chamber members and community volunteers.

  • Guys Read Program Kick off coming

    By Sheree Priddy


    As I’ve begun to put together our Guys Read book club and started digging further into the topic, I have discovered multiple websites and books dedicated to the topic of boys and reading. There is a website called ‘Boys Rock, Boys Read’ where two men blog about books for boys. Besides GuysRead.com, there is also a boysread.org website. All of these are dedicated to promoting books that will be more in line with the topics and tastes of young males.
