  • Students advance to Kentucky Children's Chorus

     Six local elementary and middle school students successfully auditioned for the 2013 Kentucky Music Educators Association’s All State Chorus.

    Of the 576 fifth and sixth grade students from 127 Kentucky schools, the six KMEA judges double-blind scored recorded auditions on a 250 point rubric in three areas - tonal memory, harmony and a prepared Latin solo in “Panis Angelicus” by Cesar Frank.

  • COLUMN: Pasture renovation pays

    Renovating pastures and hay fields to renew grass productivity is one of the most important things LaRue County farmers can do to improve their pasture and hay fields. Pastures and other forages feed the county’s 27,000 head of cattle and calves in addition to the other ruminant livestock and horses. It will soon be time to renovate this year.

    Pasture renovation (seeding legumes, usually clover, into an established grass stand) is a win‑win situation because it decreases production costs and increases animal performance, which should result in increased income.

  • Cheerleading competition, basketball game rescheduled

    Tonight’s LaRue vs. Caverna basketball game has been postponed until Saturday, due to icy roads. The Lady Hawks play at 6:30 p.m., followed by the Hawks at 8 p.m. at Caverna.

    The inaugural KHSAA Competitive Cheer Championships, scheduled for Saturday (Jan. 26), have been postponed until Feb. 23 at WKU’s Diddle Arena.

  • COLUMN: Thank you, Angel, for your devotion to the community

     I remember first learning about Kentucky History in Mrs. Warnick’s 4th grade class. She was a Civil War buff and dressed up as a pioneer woman when we discussed that period in Kentucky’s history. She and her husband would participate in different Civil War reenactments in various locations. 

    I remember being fascinated that a President was born in Kentucky and wondered where and what kind of town Hodgenville must be to raise such an amazing man like Abraham Lincoln.

     We are living in a day of substitutes. Many foods and other articles have been replaced by something else.

    We have substitutes for sugar, salt, certain metals, wood.
