  • Travels abroad make you appreciate your blessings

    I recently returned from a tour of the west-African country of Ghana. I was part of a visiting group connected with the University of Kentucky. We had two administrators from UK, two county extension agents and seven Extension Homemaker members from across the state in our Kentucky group.

  • You can feel the love for LaRue at the State Fair

    People around Kentucky and southern Indiana have a warm feeling about Hodgenville and LaRue County.

    If you want proof, spend a four-hour shift at LaRue County’s booth in the Pride of Counties display at the Kentucky State Fair.

    From 5 to 9 p.m. Aug. 21, it was my privilege to stand between cutouts of Joel Ray Sprowls and Abraham Lincoln and distribute promotional material about LaRue County.

  • 30-year friendship reignited on trip

    On July 30, Sandy Kirk Poteet and Debbie Dorsey Jones flew from Louisville to San Jose. I arrived a few hours later from Florida. The cross-country trip to California was a whirlwind. The occasion was to visit our friend Monique Douglass Engleman. What started as a fun, carefree vacation ended up as much more. What we discovered was the gift of friendship. 

  • Red Cross thanks

    The American Red Cross, Hardin/LaRue Service Center, held its annual golf scramble July 31 at the Lincoln Trail Country Club in Vine Grove. More than $6,700 was raised to benefit the Red Cross Disaster Services Program. Eighty golfers played in an 18-hole team scramble, with a complimentary lunch, goody bag, door prize for each player and cash prizes. Thanks go to The Cecilian Bank for co-sponsoring and helping with the event.

  • Unhappy with store’s practices

    I am writing to share my recent experience with a store in the area. On Aug. 16 – a very hot day – I stopped by the store to pick up dog food. Upon my entering I was welcomed with a very cool blast of air flowing freely out of the door. I began to question the reasoning in such a wasteful action.

  • Cataract treatments improve quality of life

    Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness in the world. Cataracts affect 20.5 million Americans age 40 and older.

    Fortunately, in the U.S., cataract surgery is safer and simpler than ever with results that cannot only improve your vision but can potentially do so and eliminate your need or dependency on glasses.

    Usually, cataracts develop slowly with little effect on vision. But as the cataract grows, vision becomes blurred, like looking through a cloudy lens or an impressionist painting.
