• On Educating LaRue: Quilt commemorates Lincoln play, musical

     Nancy Sprowles is a practical person who believes in the old adage “waste not, want not.”

    She incorporated that philosophy with leftover pieces of material used in costumes for a school production into a full/queen-size log cabin quilt that she presented to Penny Akers, music teacher at Abraham Lincoln Elementary School last month.

    The quilt, like the school, has a direct connection to the Abraham Lincoln motif.
