  • Only a few years ago, the main offerings at the LaRue County Public Library were books, newspapers, a handful of books-on-tape and a modest vinyl record collection.

    Lee rose early Wednesday to climb into Hardin Memorial Hospital’s Wellness on Wheels mobile health unit at Kroger on Dolphin Drive in Elizabethtown. The visit served as a motivational self-starter.
