  • Balancing your savings: Retirement vs. everything else

    Should I save money or pay down debt? Should I pay for my child’s education or save for retirement? Should I pay down my student loans or build my savings? These are valid questions, as many of us have multiple savings and debt repayment goals to achieve at the same time. Figuring out how to prioritize them can be a struggle. The good news is that in most cases, the answer to these questions is the same: do both.

  • Fair Board getting new bylaws

    Stockholders of the LaRue County Fairgrounds met Oct. 21 to discuss the 2015 fair and elect new officers.

    Attorney Kyle Williamson had drawn up new by-laws for the group, based on their 1938 by-laws. However, board member Glenn Phelps brought a copy of July 30, 1970 articles of incorporation to the meeting – and another board member, Beverly Heath, recalled an even-newer document.

    The suggested changes were defining the number of board members and officers, and voting privileges.

  • Ky. 470 improvements planned

    Safety improvements are in the works for a rural LaRue County route. Awarding of a contract by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is expected by the end of this year to realign portions of KY 470 between KY 61 and KY 210.

    During the previous five years on this stretch of road, records indicate 24 collisions resulting in 16 injuries. These numbers are among the highest throughout KYTC’s District Four counties when compared to other roads having similar characteristics.

  • Hammonsville Cemetery: Donations needed to care for veterans’ graves

    Though silent and serene on the surface, cemeteries hold entombed within their graves not only the bodies, but also the accounts of all who rest there. Some lived and died as heroes; others, villains; some were murderers; others, victims.

    Most of these accounts remain unknown except to those still living who knew the deceased. A few, however, will have their lives told and retold through generations.
