    I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas holiday. Many traveled from afar to visit and bring gifts to their loved ones. There were many dinners, and other events that made this holiday an enjoyable happy season.

    Arneva Smith and Dolivinia Watson were admitted to Hardin Memorial Hospital last week and released. Arneva was admitted Sunday afternoon. She’s in room 220.

    Sunday morning was youth day at Lane Lincoln.

    To each and everyone, have a safe and happy New Year.

  • The library can help with your time-honored traditions

    Christmas is past, but many of you may still want to look up your favorite, time-honored movie or books, and check them out at the LaRue County Public Library. Whether it is How the Grinch Stole Christmas, A Christmas Carol or Little Women, each one is made available for your enjoyment through the work of our technical services librarian, Sarah Graff.

    Sarah contributes to the library in multiple ways.
