  • Freshman ‘T-baby Paysen’ starts for U of L

    Tesha Paysen didn’t believe her University of Louisville softball teammate Megan Hornback last week when the catcher told Paysen she had made the Lady Cards’ starting lineup.

    “I never look at the lineup, because I’m a freshman,” said Paysen, a 2008 LaRue County High School graduate. “Megan is a cutup, always joking, and I thought that she was joking this time, too.”

  • Raccoon’s rabies test is negative

    Local officials feared a raccoon that bit a local man last week was rabid after it was found dead in its cage. However, Sherry Grimes of the LaRue County Environmental Office said a preliminary rabies test came back negative Monday morning.

    “'So far, so good' no rabies in LaRue County,” said Grimes.

    The most recent reported case of rabies in LaRue County was a horse in 2007.

    The raccoon was trapped by police April 22 after reports that it was “tearing up an apartment and everyone in it.”

  • Identity hearing held in Gilbert case

    An identity hearing and arraignment was held April 16 in the case of Richard Gilbert, the Hodgenville chiropractor who faces charges of tax evasion and obstructing the Internal Revenue Service.
