  • Superintendent pleads not guilty to DUI charge

    LaRue County Schools Superintendent Samuel D. Sanders pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges of driving under the influence of alcohol and speeding.

    Sanders and his attorney, Doug Hubbard of Bardstown, stood before Special Judge Lisa P. Jones and a mostly empty courtroom.

    Jones, who usually presides over the 6th Judicial District (Owensboro area), was appointed to oversee the case after LaRue District Judge C. Derek Reed recused himself.

    Sanders surrendered his driver’s license at the judge’s request.

    Lindsey went 3-for-4, while Cottrell and Cecil combined to go 3-for-6. Sophomore Colby Skaggs went 2-for-3 with two doubles and two runs for LaRue County (4-9), which won for the first time since March 26.

  • SOFTBALL: LaRue rolls past John Hardin

    Gardner, a senior center fielder, laced a three-run double to left-center field in the fourth to enforce the mercy rule.
