  • A volunteer can be defined as a person who voluntarily offers himself for a service or undertaking; one who performs a service willingly and without pay. That pretty much sums it up for Brian Sprowles.

He is a 1992 graduate of LaRue County High School and the son of long-time and retired teachers from the LaRue County School system, Donald and Nancy Sprowles.

    NARFE to meet

  • The LaRue County Ambassadors were the recipients of the Richard Burks Award at the annual Lincoln Luncheon on Friday.

    The award honors an individual or group that promotes the Abraham Lincoln legacy and LaRue County history throughout the state.

  • Let it be known that local attorney and Lincoln historian Carl Howell is a dyed-in-the-wool deltiologist.

    Now, before you think that Howell has taken on a new religion, suffice it to say that a deltiologist is a person who collects postcards as a hobby.

    With more than 20,000 vintage postcards in his collection, including some 2,500 connected in various ways to Abraham Lincoln, Howell definitely fits the definition.

    Not many women enter the Wild Turkey Federation contest, Special Events Coordinator Karen Cavender said.

  • It is time for producers and landowners to consider planning for the next growing season.

    Each fiscal year, the Natural Resources Conservation Service sets dates for program application ranking. Although dates may vary from one program to another, landowners may sign up at any time for all conservation programs.

    Anyone can apply for assistance whether or not they have a conservation plan, but the first step will be to develop a plan that meets the participant’s objectives.
