  • At last! Lincoln Memorial Building opens

    After a long year of renovations, the Memorial Building at Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Park is again welcoming visitors.

    Officials made the decision to close the building to repair the skylight and correct mold problems – a process that was expected to take several months. The century-old building held enough structural surprises to delay the completion.

  • Pride of the Counties a success

    The LaRue County Chamber of Commerce thanks everyone who contributed to our booth at the Kentucky State Fair “Pride of the Counties.” Volunteers donated many hours to tell about LaRue County and our many amenities.

    Others are placing photos on the Chambers Facebook of children with his or her cabin constructed of Lincoln Logs. The Lincoln Logs were a great success and even adults enjoyed the activity.

    We thank Iris LaRue and The Lincoln Museum for lending special items for our display case.

  • My baby you will always be

    One of the hardest things a mother will have to do is let her child go. I had to do that last weekend. After 12 years of school and ballgames in every sport. I had to pack his clothes, TV, and his beloved PlayStation in my truck and drive him to a new beginning – College.

    What ever will I do now? I don’t remember ever being without him. I’ve always done for him or with him. I need to find Carrie Ann again ... and put Mom on the back burner.

  • 'Dinner for Schmucks' offers no compliment to Schmucks

    Has anyone else noticed that there is a new movie out now with “Schmuck” in its title?

  • Appreciates donors

    Rust-Wright Funeral Home was accidentally left out of the list of senior citizens donations at the fair. We apologize for this mistake.

  • Christians can be religious jerks

    According to Forest Gump, Christians are like a box of chocolates.

    You can’t always tell which ones are nuts.

    Also, when you bite into a bad one, it ruins your taste for the rest of the box.

    That’s what I used as my opening Sunday as the invited guest speaker at the local Unitarian-Universalist fellowship.

  • Jamboree fan

    It has been a long time since I went to the Lincoln Jamboree.

    My family and I went Saturday night and it was great. Rick Whitlock and Blake Whitlock were wonderful (a few Johnny Cash songs). Joel Ray needed a haircut but that didn’t stop his jokes. And the price was just $8. Movies are $8 and you only get half the fun.

    At intermission, there was soft ice cream and the singers sold tapes and gave interviews.

    Thank you, Joel Ray, for the memories. I wish you would bring the raffle back at intermission.
