  • Charges against tree cutter branching into other counties

    A Hodgenville man is facing a misdemeanor charge of deceptive business practice in LaRue District Court.

    However, more charges against Andre B. Petrick, 37, have been piling up in recent weeks.

    Petrick is lodged in the Bullitt County Detention Center, where he faces a felony charge of theft by failure to make required disposition of property and another count of deceptive business practice in Bullitt County.

  • Woman charged with endangering children

    A Hodgenville woman was charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a minor Sunday afternoon after police found her and two children “hiding upstairs” in a Greensburg Road residence.

    A social worker, accompanied by Constable Tim Ford, visited the house where Annabelle Carlen, 26, was staying after receiving an anonymous tip about poor living conditions, Ford said.

    “There was animal feces on the floor and a number of dogs and cats in the residence,” Ford said.

  • Man injured in logging accident

    A man was transported from New Haven to University of Louisville Hospital by helicopter Friday afternoon after a logging accident.

    Rolling Fork Fire Department Chief Frank Hall said the man, later identified as Joshua Gibson, 22, formerly of Buffalo, apparently was trying to hook up a log to a skidder when the skidder rolled backward over him, crushing his pelvic area. Gibson was transported from St. Ann Church, although the accident happened elsewhere in Howardstown.

    Nelson County EMS also responded.

  • Fiscal Court hears road report

    Business at Tuesday’s meeting of LaRue Fiscal Court at the courthouse in Hodgenville dealt mainly with road-related matters.

    Timmy Brown, county road department supervisor, reported crews have leveled and resealed Gunning Lane and L. Bell Road that were washed out during the flood.

    The road department is also finishing widening R. Skaggs Road. Brown said they will double seal it soon. 

    “We’ve also mow-trimmed Wheeler and Parker Grove roads and mowing crews are in the Levelwoods area,” Brown told magistrates.

  • Disappointed with county fair

    As I sit down to write this letter, I’m not sure where to start. I gathered up my family Saturday evening to have an awesome time at the fair. Despite the rain chances, we went anyway.

  • Response from LaRue County Fair Board

    Lyvers requested a reply from the LaRue County Fair Board.

    Ann “Snookie” Morrison responded that several local groups rented a spot to sell concessions. The groups set the price for the food. The carnival’s food and games booths also set their own prices.

    When the carnival arrived, “they lacked five rides,” Morrison said, but it was too late to book another company.

    “We hope to do better next year,” she said. “Maybe go with a different carnival.”
