  • 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.

  • Letter to the Editor

    Dear Editor,

    It is election season again, where the never ending commercials bombard us with a myriad of negative information. There is little, if any, positive information. That is my purpose, to speak to the good things that our elected officials do.

  • Letter to the Editor

    Dear Editor,

    We would like to recognize the staff of Hardin Memorial Hospital for their personal and professional care during our recent stay. Special thanks to the Birth Place, ICU, Rapid response team and the Elizabethtown Physicians for Women. When someone goes to the hospital for the birth of their child, they don’t expect to utilize so many departments.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
