  • Concern about what the community looks like to visitors

    Dear Editor,

    After reading last week’s article on the American Queen Steamboat Company tours, we were filled with such pride in our community.   Even living on the road to Lincoln’s Birthplace, it always amazes us to read the statistics of visitors each year that travel to LaRue County to tour our park and visit the museum.

  • Saving challenges for women

    America Saves, a national campaign that promotes savings, notes significant differences in savings between men and women.

  • Constantly at war

    My wife and I have been at war with a force to be reckoned with. This force has kept me up at night, given me nightmares and is making it hard for me to focus on my normal day-to-day activaties. This force is an army of groundhogs.

    We have been infested with groundhogs on our property for several weeks now. This war did not start out as a war. We have a grown-up fence row in our backyard and one spring afternoon in May, I noticed this brown creature running in and out of the fence row while I was mowing the yard and the creature was later identified as a groundhog.
