  • Shelbi Morgan Brooks, of Hodgenville and daughter of Jeffrey and Jodi Brooks, has been awarded the J.R. and Carrie Lee Edwards Scholarship by Central Kentucky Community Foundation.

    The J.R. and Carrie Lee Edwards Scholarship was established by Nancy Handley Goodin at her death in 2007 to honor her aunt and uncle, J.R. and Carrie Lee Edwards. This $2,000 per year renewable scholarship is offered each year to LaRue County High School graduating seniors pursuing a degree in education.

  • Some years ago, a picture of the historic flag designed by Betsy Ross appeared around July 4 on the front page of a Chicago newspaper. Underneath the picture were the words, "It's time to check our stitches again." It's almost July 4 again, and in my opinion we need to check our stitches to see if we are still the home of the brave and the land of the free.

  • A yard on Keith Road was “forked” last week. Ann Skaggs said someone stuck about 100 white plastic forks in her front yard. One group of forks appeared to form the initials “LC” similar to the LaRue County Schools logo. “I don’t know if they meant it for a joke – or to be hateful,” said Skaggs. “I guess it’s kind of comical.”

  • A new veterans nursing home will open in fall 2015 in Radcliff.

  • DUI

    The following cases of Driving Under the Influence and the resolution of those cases are found in LaRue District Court: ADE is an abbreviation for Alcohol Driver Education, KAPS stands for Kentucky Alternative Program.

  • The successes of the LaRue County Chamber of Commerce would not be possible without our board of directors who are tireless advocates promoting our mission as a chamber and supporting our community in countless ways.

  • Last Saturday, anyone who walked inside the Laundry Basket received free laundry services. Not only were their loads paid for, they were given free laundry detergent, dryer sheets and snacks.

    Throughout the day, members of Hodgenville United Methodist Church took turns assisting the customers of the laundromat with their clothes.

    “They were awesome,” said Denise and Harvey Higdon, owners of the Laundry Basket.

  • A few years ago, Bobby Morrison picked out an embroidered panel for his own casket.
    His family did not know what he had done – but after they saw it last week at the funeral home, they agreed the design fit him perfectly.
    Morrison, who died June 8 at the age of 88, had selected depictions of Santa Claus, a fire department and Ferris wheel. The words “Scout Master Troop 425” underscored the colorful motifs.

  • LaRue County Deputy Eric Williamson, who works with the Greater Hardin County Narcotics Task Force, was a guest at the Hodgenville Rotary Club. He discussed the duties of the task force and the problems the area is facing. He was the guest of Rotarian Cheryl Thomas and is pictured with Rotarian Katie McDowell.

  • Addilyn “Addie” Roberts, the 3-year-old daughter of Angela and Ben Roberts of Hodgenville, started her final phase of chemotherapy last Monday.
    The little girl with the big smile was diagnosed with leukemia at age 2 and has been on treatment since then.
    “She’s been doing pretty well. She had a really rough month in February, though,” said Angela, who added her daughter lost 13 pounds in two weeks due to nausea caused by the chemo.
    “But she got through it and she’s doing really well,” she said.
