  • Memorial Building featured on ornament

    The Lincoln Museum’s annual collectible Christmas ornament continues the Lincoln Bicentennial theme.

    The white ornament, seventh in a series of eight, features the Memorial Building that houses the traditional birth cabin at the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Park. The photo was taken by a park employee during a February snow.

    An ill-timed ice storm canceled the Lincoln Bicentennial celebration at the park Feb. 12, but staff commemorated the 200th birthday of the 16th president despite the weather. The ceremony was moved to LaRue County High School.

    A combination of cold weather and the holiday schedule has delayed a pair of projects in Hodgenville, Mayor Terry Cruse told city council members Dec. 14.

    The Greensburg Street water tower project will “get going as soon as weather permits,” Cruse said. The new tower will be constructed on land adjacent to the LaRue County Fairgrounds.

    The lights at Creekfront Park are on hold until city workers can place the conduit. The project probably won’t be completed this month.

  • Hunting banned at McDougal Lake

    A locked gate on city-owned property led to a face-off between hunters and landowners at the Hodgenville City Council meeting Monday night.

    The meeting ended with the council voting unanimously to close McDougal Lake, a 90-acre lake on Ky. 470, to hunters.

    For the last 20 or so years, hunting has been permitted around the lake. An ordinance limited sportsmen to archery, black powder rifles or shotguns, but otherwise, there were few restrictions on deer or duck hunters.
