  • Is it too late for corn?

    Although new crop corn and soybean prices are near record highs, planting conditions remain poor for some of the corn crop. About two-thirds of the corn crop has been planted in the state, but grain farmers are concerned whether they can get their entire corn crop out in a timely manner.
    An associated question is when should a grower stop planting corn and switch to soybeans. In order to help answer this question, growers need to estimate potential yield losses for late planted corn and compare the associated profitability against soybeans.

  • Remembering with Gratitude

    Memorial Day is more than just another holiday, a day off from work, a cook out with family and friends, or a trip to the lake. This weekend is time to remember people. We remember them in two ways: in death and in life.

  • One man, one mower, one mission

    As Memorial Day approaches, families make plans to honor their dead. Some place flowers or wreaths on graves, others bring tools to spruce up the cemetery and some simply visit the burial site.
    Others use the day for a private get-together, celebrating the start of summer activities.
    Many forget the original intent of the holiday - to honor veterans who had fallen in battle.

  • Police search area after IGA Express robbery

    Hodgenville City Police are investigating a May 16 robbery at IGA Express across from the LaRue County Fairgrounds.
    The perpetrator, who was carrying a knife, entered the store around 10 p.m. and demanded money from the store clerk, according to Hodgenville City Police Chief Steve Johnson. The clerk handed over the cash drawer and the robber left.
