  • 'Remembering our Babies' service planned for Oct. 23

    The birth of a child is one of life’s greatest joys. But when a child dies by miscarriage, stillbirth, or as a newborn infant, the parents and family are often expected to respond as if the loss is less painful — and has less meaning — than the death of an older child, or of an adult. It can be upsetting when friends and relatives say things such as, “You can always have another baby.”

  • DISTRICT VOLLEYBALL: Lady Hawks fall, but earn spot in region tourney

    Behind the powerful hitting of senior Kayla McFee, the Green County Lady Dragons spiked their way to their ninth straight district championship.

  • FISCAL COURT: Residents petition for mail service on Jackson Road

    LaRue County Fiscal Court, meeting at the courthouse in Hodgenville Oct. 11, approved David Whelan Electric of Hodgenville to connect an emergency generator with the courthouse.

    Tommy Turner, county judge-executive, told magistrates Whelan's bid of $19,822, was the better of two bids submitted. He said the generator would allow emergency and other services to remain operable in the event power was lost as it was a couple of years ago during storms.

    The court set the county's trick or treat schedule for 6-8 p.m. Oct. 31.

  • Devers steps into character for many different roles

    LaRue County Community Education director Vicki Devers carries many aliases in her work.
    Depending on the time of the year and the instructional unit students are in, she may appear as Dr. Seuss’ Cat in the Hat, Johnny Appleseed or even Mother Goose.
    “I even appeared one time as the Easter Bunny, but the mask was so tight against my face I almost smothered, so I let the bunny go,” said Devers who has 19 years’ experience with the LaRue County School District.
