  • Magistrates approve local jail policy update

    Magistrates approved an updated jail policy and procedure manual as LaRue County Fiscal Court met Aug. 11 at the courthouse in Hodgenville.

    “A lot of these items added in the updating are common sense things, such as ‘inmates may have toilet paper upon request,’ but since that is state law, they must be included in the manual,” Judge-Executive Tommy Turner explained to the court.

    Magistrate Scotty Lee voted against the update, saying he never had the opportunity to read the policy and procedure manual.

  • Try these tips for homemade salsa

    The type of tomato you use often affects the quality of salsas. Paste tomatoes, such as Roma, have firmer flesh and produce thicker salsas than large slicing tomatoes, although both types make good salsas. Salsa can be thickened by adding tomato paste.

    Use only high quality tomatoes for canning salsa or any other tomato product. Poor quality or overripe tomatoes will yield a very poor salsa and may spoil.
