  • County soybean variety plot results

    The LaRue County Extension Service annually conducts corn and soybean variety trial plots in cooperation with a local farmer and participating grain companies. The plots demonstrate how specific varieties can perform under local conditions for a given year.

    Both the corn and soybean plots were in cooperation with Ryan Bivens of Fresh Start Farms. They have been our cooperator for the last three years and it has been really appreciated.

  • Hodgenville News - November 25, 2015

    Thought for the week: Sometimes when things are falling apart they may actually be falling into place.

    I am not fond of early deadlines because there is hardly anything to report. I don’t see what the big issue is to have “In God We Trust” put on our police cruisers. I think that is what is needed in all communities. We need to turn back to God in these troubling times the whole country is going thru, just my thoughts.

  • College application month at LCHS
