  • Redistricting remains in picture ... for next session

    The House State Government Committee approved House Bill 2, the redistricting plan designed by House Democrats, before it adjourned.
    The bill didn’t appear to be going anywhere from the onset, according to 19th District Representative Michael Lee Meredith (R-Brownsville). The matter was not resolved.
    If the proposal had passed, LaRue County would become part of a revised 24th District, along with all of Green and Marion County.
    Eleven Republican incumbents would be pitted against each other in five of the six districts.

  • Planning and Zoning continues work on sign ordinance

    Land of Lincoln Planning and Zoning has returned to the drawing board after its proposed sign ordinance was stonewalled by LaRue Fiscal Court and Hodgenville City Council.

  • Share and Care Club provides understanding, companionship for those who have lost a spouse

    When Sally Clopton’s husband died in 2001, she suffered all the stages of grieving that a tragic loss involves, including a feeling of isolation.
    “I stayed home, didn’t want to go anywhere, and my mind mainly dealt on the loss of my husband,” she said.
    But, sometime later, on the way back to her home near Mount Sherman after visiting some family members in Brownsville, she realized something that changed the rest of her life.
