     Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.

  • Pipeline companies halt project

     The proposed Bluegrass Pipeline, which would have crossed a dozen Kentucky counties over a 180-mile route – including LaRue County – appears to be dead.

    Williams Co. and Boardwalk Pipeline Partners, the two energy companies behind the controversial project, announced Monday that they could not put together a large enough customer base for natural gas liquids to make the project viable.

    NGLs are used in plastics and commercial fuel – and are generally classed as hazardous materials.

  • Courtroom security increased after contraband found

     Security has been tightened in LaRue County courtrooms after an inmate was discovered with contraband – immediately after a court appearance – earlier this month.

    Jason Kitzero, 36, of Buffalo, was lodged at the LaRue County Detention Center following his arrest for manufacturing methamphetamine. Kitzero was present at an April 1 house fire believed to have been started by an exploding meth lab.

    Kitzero now faces a charge of promoting contraband after jail deputies found a large package of tobacco on his person during a search.

     Hodgenville Mayor Terry Cruse has called a special meeting of city council at 6 p.m. April 30 for the purpose of appointing three members to the Board of Ethics.

    The meeting will be held at City Hall, 200 S. Lincoln Blvd.
