  • If the band’s name – Hooker – has raised your eyebrows, it has done its job.

    “My dad always told me it was like putting ‘free beer’ on the marquee,” said Kyle Williamson, founding member of Hooker.

    Williamson, lead guitarist and vocalist, said the name was meant to draw attention and get people in the door. Once in the door, the reasoning went, the audience would stick around because of the band’s performance.

    The band plays a mix of cover songs and original material.

  • As LaRue County wheat growers select their wheat varieties to seed this fall, they should consider results of the University of Kentucky Small Grain Variety Performance Test.
