  • Hodgenville’s downtown historic district may be expanded from the area originally given that designation.

Property owners and community leaders and others interested in the issue met Aug. 20 in the Lincoln Museum Community Room to hear National Register Coordinator Marty Perry. The meeting was coordinated and hosted by Main Street.

  • Creekfront Park soon will have written rules and streetlights.

    Monday, Hodgenville City Council gave the thumbs up to Mayor Terry Cruse to develop a set of posted rules for the park.

    Cruse said he has received numerous complaints about animals at Creekfront - especially unleashed dogs and owners not cleaning up after their pets.

    City Clerk Madonna Hornback said the Kentucky League of Cities recommended written rules for liability reasons about a year ago.

  • For one special evening, Sept. 1, LaRue County High School’s Lady Hawks volleyball team will add pink to their blue-and-white colors as they host their second annual Volley for the Cure.

    LaRue’s ladies will lace up with pink shoelaces, wear pink ribbons and will play with a pink volleyball, according to booster president Deena Bradley. She is hopeful their opposing players, the Lady Bruins from Central Hardin, will join them in wearing pink.

  • LaRue County is home to the Hawks. This fall it will also be home to the Tigers, as Campbellsville University will hold post secondary classes in Hodgenville for the first time.

  • Niki Carter, the new director of the LaRue County Public Library, sees the place as a community center where “people are encouraged to benefit themselves and the community.”

    “Our popular collections will always be here for the people, but we’re a source that focuses on the people’s needs; that’s where libraries have their staying power,” said Carter, who finished her master’s in library science from the University of Kentucky this semester. 

  • Two staff members of The LaRue County Herald News  were honored in a national contest last month.

    A total of 1,713 entries from newspapers across the country were entered in the editorial contest.
