  • ON EDUCATING LARUE: It's scholarship time

    As every high school student seeking to go to college and his parents know, college is expensive and becoming more costly.

  • School board: RC Cola wins bid

    RC Cola will again be the drink of choice for LaRue County Schools during the upcoming year.
