  • School board considers make-up days

    The LaRue County Board of Education made the decision at their Nov. 17 meeting to accept a proposed 2015-16 school calendar.

    The calendar included two make-up days that would be used in the case of inclement weather or other cancellations. Those days are March 11 and May 6. Board member Price Smith suggested the board add two more days: Dec. 22 and 23.

    Smith said he felt the additional days would help keep the schools from having to go into the first week of June if the area has another winter like last year.

  • Thanksgiving isn’t a religion-free zone

    Thanksgiving is an unusual holiday for it is a time when we combine God, government and society. It seems that it is OK for anyone, regardless of his religion, to be thankful.

    That bothers me, because when something is so universally accepted, it means it has been watered down and changed from its original purpose. For example, look at what has happened to Christmas and Easter.

  • Ribbon-cutting held for bed and breakfast

    All the Way Plumb Bed and Breakfast is a new lodging option for visitors to the area.

    Owners Mike and Kaye Smith added four spare bedrooms on the second floor of their home located at 4213 Tanner Road – and a suite on the top floor.

    Mike, a former woodshop teacher at LaRue County High School, said the business’s name comes from a carpentry term. When something is “plumb,” it’s exactly where it needs to be. So, he said he and Kaye have always told each other “I love you all the way plumb.” The name evolved from there.
