  • Time Travel

    Mrs. Allison Shepherd gave me the opportunity to dive into the archives of The LaRue County Herald News to discover the changes that have been made over the last 20 years. She wanted me to look at what I thought has improved in the paper and what can be improved in the future to keep the readers interested. So, I took a “time travel” into past 20 years of archives. So what has changed? Everything from the structure, the colors, the online access and the people who operate the paper. Here’s what I found out about the changes.

  • Tips to reduce sodium intake

    Keeping blood pressure in the normal range reduces an individual’s risk of cardiovascular disease, congestive heart failure, and kidney disease. Therefore, everyone should limit their intake of sodium.
