  • BARNYARD TALES: Old barn was home to 'fun' activity of corn shredding

    Ray DeSpain plans to demolish an old barn on his farm at the edge of Hodgenville city limits.

    DeSpain shared a few memories about “corn shredding” in that old barn.

    As a few oldtimers may remember, corn shredding was not a one-man job. Six men, at a minimum, were needed. Eight was better and 10 were too many.

    First, the old shredder had to be positioned at just the right spot to blow the shredded corn fodder in the loft of the old barn and to drop the ear corn in a parked wagon.

  • BASKETBALL: Reynolds' free-throw secures Hawk victory

    The LaRue County Hawks Boys Basketball Team improved their season record to 13-6 after defeating the Meade County Green Wave Feb. 1, 55-54.

    The Hawks had lost three of their last four games and were in need of a late season victory, said Head Coach Paul Childress. 

    “This was a good win for us,” Childress said. “It was a close game and that is what you will run in to during post-season. Our guys stepped up and made enough plays at the end to win the game.”

    The Hawks got off to a shaky start, Childress said.
