  • Second 'Super Cat' found

    A local mystery has been solved.

    Bill Thomas, a firefighter in Louisville, came across a “Super Cat” comic in a thrift store. It was in a package with a visor and three basketball cards. He paid $1.99 each and thinks he made a deal.

    Thomas was searching the Internet for clues about the find when he hit on William Gowen’s photo showing off his own “Super Cat” comic on the The LaRue County Herald News website.

    Gowen brought the comic book to the newspaper office in hopes of finding out more about it.

  • Volunteers needed to work State Fair booth

    This summer the Chamber of Commerce has been busy with a variety of tourists, local families with kids stopping in to find Waldo, and planning and preparing for our booth at this year’s Kentucky State Fair.

    That is right – the Kentucky State Fair is just around the corner. I can almost taste the funnel cakes, hear the music, and smell the livestock. We are making plans and recruiting volunteers for our Pride of the Counties booth.
