  • Residents address school board: Superintendent's suspension was 'too light'

     Superintendent Sam Sanders’ 30-day suspension without pay ends Wednesday. The sanction by the LaRue County School Board followed his arrest for DUI while driving a school-owned vehicle, and speeding, in March.

    Sanders pleaded not guilty to the charges in LaRue District Court. He lost his driving privileges after the judge learned he had refused a Breathalyzer test. His next court appearance is June 19.

    Several residents do not think the sanction fitted the violation – and voiced their disappointment at Monday’s school board meeting.

  • Clippin' Waggin' brings grooming to pets

     There’s a new business in town. In fact, you may have seen it driving around Hodgenville, recently—it’s pretty hard to miss.

    Jill Rock is the proud owner of the Clippin’ Waggin’, which, she believes, is Hodgenville’s only mobile pet grooming service. 

    Her business is set up in a white van with bright, multi-colored bubbles painted on the sides and pictures of her dog, Jack, sitting in a tub on wheels, and Winky, her mother, Rosalie Jahnke’s dog on the back. 

  • Local students honored for academics by ECTC

  • Frankfort Focus: Remember those who served this holiday

     Memorial Day may be the unofficial kick-off to summer, but as we ready for the upcoming holiday weekend, it is vital that we never forget it is much more than that. It is also a time when we as a nation pause to mourn and to reflect upon those men and women who paid the ultimate price defending our freedom.

    The holiday is nearing its 150th anniversary, and given that it came about in the wake of the Civil War, it seems appropriate that there is still some debate between the North and South about its exact origin.

  • Groundhog Hill: Little Winter? You bet your linen britches it's cold

     This past week, the thermometer read 37 degrees one morning. Yikes.

    As soon as Dad awakened and came to the kitchen for breakfast, I hit him first with a statement: “It’s 37 degrees outside” and followed it up with this question: “Which winter is this?”

    Dad is not super-verbal first thing in the morning, so while I waited for him to put on his thinking cap (and drink his cup of coffee), I booted up my computer and searched online for some answers.

  • DISTRICT SOFTBALL: Lady Hawks are district runners-up

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks’ backs were against the wall.

    Top-seeded Green County pushed across two runs and had loaded the bases against junior starting pitcher Emillee Cundiff, slicing LaRue County’s four-run lead to two in the bottom of the seventh inning, so Lady Hawks coach Aaron Howell called on senior Brigitte Skaggs to close it out.
