  • The urge to draw

    When it comes to art media, Liz Martin, LaRue County Public Library’s featured artist for May, uses clay, egg gourds, pencil, oil, rocks, even felt.

    “Felt is the hardest to shape,” the Pike View Road resident said. “But I seem to use just about anything I can get my hands on.”

    “Mama used to get mad at me because after I finished my school homework, I would draw all around it on the margins,” she confessed.

  • For the love of horses

    Gene Ray and his brothers grew up with horses.

    His dad trained quarter horses. The family spent a great deal of time together at horse shows, many of them at LaRue County Saddle Club. There, they deepened their love of the animals and the fun they had riding and competing with them.

    Last September, a sudden stroke of his optic nerve left Ray with the ability to see only silhouettes, but he hasn’t let that setback hamper him from spreading that enjoyment of horses as president of the saddle club located at 210 Goodin Williams Road.
