  • LCS explores Digital Learning Initiative funding

    With the 2016-17 school year underway, LaRue County Schools again are equipping every high school and middle school student with a laptop computer, but the Digital Learning Initiative’s long-term future is uncertain.

    The school district’s overall financial needs have prevented saving for replacement computers, and now funding for new computers may not be in place when student laptops begin wearing out.

    At first, the initiative provided 800 laptops to LaRue County High School students and 55 laptops for teachers.

  • Lost in LaRue - August 17, 2016

    There was no way I could even think about taking a walk on July 28, it was a rainy morning that turned into a drizzling afternoon. In attempt to refocus my eyes on some natural surroundings I went for a drive.

    Road trips in the rain aren’t as dreary as they sound, you just have to have the right music, for me it was the Gallier Brothers album On the Wing. It’s a lovely instrumental tract that features one of my favorite instruments, the Dulcimer. With the right music I was ready for some amazing photos.
