  • Schools offer Family Fitness and Wellness Club

    Entire families are becoming fit together as they participate in the Family Resource Centers Family Fitness and Wellness Club.

    Abraham Lincoln and Hodgenville Elementaries family resource centers, with added funding from Dow Corning Corporation, are sponsoring the fun-oriented workouts from 6-7 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays at one of three alternating locations – the two schools and First Baptist Church in Hodgenville.

  • Check out Hodgenville's beautiful signs

    If you haven’t already, I would encourage everyone to take notice of our new “Welcome to Hodgenville” signs, they are just so classy and beautiful.

    Thanks to Mayor Terry Cruse and the City of Hodgenville for the signs, new banners on the square, lights at Creekfront Park, and the free movies with refreshments.

    It is easy to be critical of our leadership, but it should be easier to say thanks.

    Thanks, Mayor and the City of Hodgenville, for your time and effort put into making our great city even greater.

  • Board taking sealed bids on Magnolia school

    The LaRue County School Board voted Aug. 16 to advertise for sealed bids to sell the Magnolia School building and property. 

    The bid opening will be Nov. 11 and the bid will be awarded at the regular board meeting Nov. 15.

    The elementary school closed when it and Buffalo Elementary School were consolidated to form Abraham Lincoln Elementary School in 2006.

  • Kentucky Stonehenge may result from a long history of gauming

    On Labor Day, my husband Bud and I drove to Munfordville and Cave City. We didn’t have a particular reason – just gauming around, as my dad used to say. (Gaum is a southern term used for “having no particular destination.” It may be used also to say “what an awful mess.” Some people spell it “gom.” Chances are, your dad said it too.)

    Anyway, while driving through Munfordville, we noticed a small sign that said “Kentucky Stonehenge.” Having no particular reason not to, we decided to follow the arrow.

  • Supports Hornback for school board

    I write today in support of Mike Hornback for LaRue County Schools Board of Education.

    He has consistently put his support of the LaRue County Schools into action.  That’s the type of school board member LaRue Countians should support. It is easy for people to say that they care about education and our students. There really isn’t anyone who would openly say he or she didn’t support our public education system. However, saying and doing are entirely different things.  That’s what sets Mike Hornback apart from the average citizen.

  • ACT scores show improvement

    The composite ACT score for 2010 Kentucky high school juniors remained stable from the score recorded a year ago.

    LaRue County Schools, however, showed a stark improvement in some areas of the college readiness test.

    The results released last week are from tests that all Kentucky high school juniors took last spring. It was the third year in a row for LaRue County juniors to take the now-required ACT. Results were shared during the Aug. 16 school board meeting.

  • Lady Hawks defeat Grayson, Monroe

    The Lady Hawks soccer team defeated the Lady Cougars of Grayson County 1-0 on Sept. 14.

    The offense of senior Shelby Mouser, juniors Megan Smith and Skye Davis peppered the goal mouth and consistently made thru-passes, driven passes and crossing passes only to be denied by the defense. However, it was the freshmen duo of Shelbi Brooks and Abby Modrowski who netted the only score of the match. Brooks rocketed the ball past the keeper with 10 minutes remaining in the first half with the assist to Modrowski.

  • Rineyville soldier falls in Afghanistan

    A soldier from Rineyville died Saturday in Kandahar province in Afghanistan.
