    A two-year investigation by Kentucky State Police has led to serious allegations against three former LaRue County Detention Center employees.

  • STUDENT FEATURE: Adolf Hitler

    The main leader of the holocaust was Adolf Hitler. He blamed Jews for Germany’s economic problems. He then spread hateful theories about Jews, Gypsies and other German groups. He claimed that the Jews were not as good as other Germans. Though many people did not believe Hitler, he was dead serious about what he said. To show that he was serious, he ordered attacks on neighboring countries and forced them under German rule. He quickly captured Jews and non-Jews as prisoners to fill his concentration camps.

  • STUDENT FEATURE: Volcanoes

    What is a mountain that spits out hot boiling liquid and rocks? If you guessed a volcano then you are correct.

    A volcano isn’t just any normal landform; it acts like a living thing that spews out contents one couldn’t imagine.

     To be able to understand a volcano, one must know its features. The central vent is the opening at earth’s surface through which lava, hot gases, and rock fragments burst through. The magma chamber holds all the magma in one spot inside the volcano. Craters are large bowl-shaped basins in the surface of the volcano.
