  • A LaRue County High School student was recently named the winner of the Coca-Cola Talent Contest at the Taylor County Fair.

    Kenzi Langley, a 15-year-old from Hodgenville, competed in the contest held at the Taylor County fairgrounds June 7. She sang Beyonce’s “At Last” and took home first place.

    As a result, Langley will be competing in the next stage of the talent contest at the Kentucky State Fair this summer.

    Langley said the competition was stiff and winning was unexpected.

  • When 81-year-old Jim Phelps Sr. was an 8-year-old lad, he would sneak off from his parents’ home in Hodgenville and run to the LaRue County Fairgrounds horse barn where Jack Thompson, also a Hodgenville resident and owner of Noble Kalarama, would let young Phelps ride with him in his sulky around the race track there.

    Kalarama, who claimed the world’s grand champion fine harness horse title in 1940, was just one of many horses stabled in the fairgrounds barn built for the opening of the first LaRue County Fair in 1907. 

  • For her 90th birthday, Beulah Polley will receive a gift that literally will be music to her ears – a concert by a 19-piece band.

    “I told Mother this was for her, even if she were the only person there,” said Polley, who lives in Crestwood.
