  • Redistricting remains in picture ... for next session

    The House State Government Committee approved House Bill 2, the redistricting plan designed by House Democrats, before it adjourned.
    The bill didn’t appear to be going anywhere from the onset, according to 19th District Representative Michael Lee Meredith (R-Brownsville). The matter was not resolved.
    If the proposal had passed, LaRue County would become part of a revised 24th District, along with all of Green and Marion County.
    Eleven Republican incumbents would be pitted against each other in five of the six districts.

    According to the contract, Hardin County will receive up to 20 animals per calendar month with LaRue County paying an annual fee of $21,000 for the services. LaRue County also agrees to pay $15 for each animal transported in excess of the 20-animal allowance. The contract stipulates Hardin County will accept only felines and canines.

  • Planning and Zoning continues work on sign ordinance

    Land of Lincoln Planning and Zoning has returned to the drawing board after its proposed sign ordinance was stonewalled by LaRue Fiscal Court and Hodgenville City Council.
    The commission spent about an hour at a recent meeting looking over Hardin County’s sign ordinance, noting things they liked or disliked about the plan. No recommendation or vote was taken but commissioners hope to come up with a version that will meet approval from the City and County.

  • Share and Care Club provides understanding, companionship for those who have lost a spouse

    When Sally Clopton’s husband died in 2001, she suffered all the stages of grieving that a tragic loss involves, including a feeling of isolation.
    “I stayed home, didn’t want to go anywhere, and my mind mainly dealt on the loss of my husband,” she said.
    But, sometime later, on the way back to her home near Mount Sherman after visiting some family members in Brownsville, she realized something that changed the rest of her life.

  • City Council: Open Meetings Act

    Sparks flew at Monday’s Hodgenville City Council meeting after City Clerk MaDonna Hornback pointed out a possible violation of the Open Meetings Act.
    At last month’s meeting, Councilman Alex LaRue proposed the adoption of a municipal order requiring detailed financial reports be provided quarterly by the clerk. LaRue gave copies of the order to Hornback, Mayor Terry Cruse and City Attorney Mary Gaines Locke. The other council members appeared already to have copies of the document.
