  • 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.

  • Iris LaRue - Letter to the editor

    Dear Editor,

    Some events are once in a lifetime. July 16, 2016 will be just such a day, one that we can all take part in celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the founding of the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace and commemorating the efforts of people of all stations in life from across the nation who took part in making it happen.

  • The interim is still busy

    The General Assembly may be at its busiest during the first several months of the year, when the House and Senate are focused on passing new laws, but the summer and fall months are important as well to the legislative process.

  • Why your kid does not friend you

    I overheard an adult mom recently commenting to a friend that their college-aged daughter refused to Friend her on Facebook. The other person commented enthusiastically that her daughter had friended her, and she followed her closely! I “almost” did not have the heart to tell them they were both out-of-touch with reality.

  • Whole wheat flour info and storage tips

    Worldwide, wheat is the third most-produced grain, trailing only corn (maize) and rice. In the United States, wheat accounts for about two-thirds of all grains consumed. However, much of the wheat we eat is refined (missing its nutritious bran and germ) or enriched (refined grain with just five of the dozens of missing or reduced nutrients added back in).

  • Time to stop being so offended
  • Social Networking is dead

    The word is spreading that Social Networking is dead. Or, at the very least, it is on life support.

    There are many active social networking sites, but in the US, it could be argued that the most popular are Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Pinterest, and Instagram. I could continue with sites like Tumblr, Flickr, Reddit, etc., but frankly, the majority of users who are out of their teens have never even heard of these.

  • I almost didn't cry

    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.
