  • Relay for Life - Letter to the editor

    Dear Editor,

    The 19th Annual LaRue County Relay for Life held last Saturday, June 4, was a huge success. So many people contributed to this event that it is hard to cover all that deserve recognition. Whether you donated your change at the roadblock, bought something at a Relay auction or dinner, or donated in honor or in memory of someone, your contribution mattered. The eleven Relay teams, three of which were rookies, did an awesome job and are to be commended for their time and efforts.

  • Tips to keep your salad greens fresh

    Need ideas on how to keep your salad greens fresh? A nutrition specialist with Nebraska Extension shares these salad-making tips. Salad dressing slides off damp salad greens and collects in the bottom of the salad bowl.
