  • Additional tips for a safe harvest

    Keep bystanders away from operating equipment. Also, be aware of people who may have come into the area. Harvesting areas and equipment are no place for children. Always check around equipment before starting or moving it.
    Carry a fire extinguisher on all tractors and self-propelled equipment, especially combines. Periodically check extinguishers to be sure they are pressurized and in good condition. To prevent fires on combines, be sure equipment is clean and hoses and fuel systems are in good shape and not leaking. Remove trash and debris around engine components.

  • Hawks prevail against injuries, defeat Cougars 2-1

    September began with a bevy of injuries for the Hawks soccer team. None were more devastating than to our two leading scorers – juniors Alex Cook and Ricardo Collado.  
    Cook returned to play with limited movement, but Ricardo remained sidelined. Without teamwork, determination, and personal sacrifice, a lesser team would have self-destructed. That is not the nature of this year’s team.
    There is an old saying, “Offense wins fans, but defense wins championships.”

  • Hawks knock Nelson 38-24, prepare for homecoming

    LaRue County’s special teams didn’t let the Hawks down Friday night.
    After allowing a kick return for a touchdown in consecutive losses to Green County and Spencer County, the Hawks finally had a play go their way against visiting Nelson County.
    Senior Cody Thompson returned a kickoff 93 yards for a score and added three rushing touchdowns to spark the Hawks to a 38-24 win over Nelson County, dropping the Cardinals to 0-5 for the first time since the team went 0-10 in Bill Mason’s final season in 2005.
