• Schools to honor veterans

    Next week, LaRue County’s public schools will hold ceremonies honoring those who have served in America’s armed forces.

    Three of the schools – Hodgenville Elementary, LaRue County Middle School and LaRue County High School – will have their programs on Nov. 11. Abraham Lincoln Elementary will honor veterans with a chorus concert on the 13th and assembly on the 14th.

    Veterans who are family members of students at Hodgenville Elementary School will march into the school gymnasium for an 8:30 a.m. celebration.

  • SPACE PLACE: Clear skies in Cygnus

    When astronomers set out to use an observatory or telescope on the surface of our planet, they are always hoping for a clear sky. How else are they going to see through those clouds and into space? That’s a big benefit of orbiting telescopes like the Hubble Space Telescope. Since they are already in space—well above the clouds — they aren’t affected by Earth’s weather.

  • Clifford the Big Red Dog and Biscuit bring reading fun to library

    Storytelling at the LaRue County Public Library is going to the dogs.

    Clifford the Big Red Dog and Biscuit will be the main attraction at the fun-filled event on Nov.1.

     Clifford the Big Red Dog, written by Norman Bridwell, was first published in 1963. Clifford was the runt of the litter but with lots of love he grew to over 25 feet tall. With more than126 million copies in print, he’s a pretty popular pup.

    Biscuit was written by Alyssa Satin Capucilli. This little puppy gets into all kinds of predicaments but always wants lots of hugs.
