  • Regional Wellness Center to open July 11

    The LaRue County Board of Health meeting scheduled to meet June 25, at the LaRue County Extension Office failed to result in any voted action being taken on previously scheduled plans, due to the absence of several board members.

  • Pool opening delayed

    Another problem has delayed the opening of the LaRue County Park and Recreation swimming pool.

    The grates were replaced Friday; however, the final inspection has not been held.

    Devary hopes the pool will open later this week.
