  • Course serves as guide for LCHS students

    Freshman year of high school can be an intimidating transition for students.

    Besides the social navigation, there is an increase in responsibility and learning academic and life skills.

    A new course offered to ninth grade students at LaRue County High School promotes learning about responsible ways for students to take care of their bodies.

    The course, “Reducing the Risk,” which began this month, focuses on sexually transmitted diseases and infections, human immunodeficiency virus and pregnancy prevention methods.

  • Fiscal Court approves alternate health insurance plan

    LaRue County Fiscal Court has approved an alternate health insurance plan with the current provider, Anthem, that Judge-executive Tommy Turner said will save both employees and the county money.

    “About the only things that will be higher are $5 more for an office call to the doctor and for tier two and three prescription medicines, but the plan also contains a health reimbursement account to offset those,” Turner told magistrates meeting at the courthouse in Hodgenville Oct. 8. The judge said the plan also includes a vision component.

  • McMillion among those earning National Board certifications

    Ten of LaRue County’s teachers have achieved National Board for Professional Teaching Standards’ certification. We’ll take a look at their philosophy and the hard work required to become ‘the best.’

    Reflection, or taking a close look at what one is doing in order to improve, will be a component of the new evaluation system for Kentucky teachers beginning next school year.

    For those teachers who have achieved national board certification, however, it is a continuation of what they were required to do during that process.

  • Cut Above celebrates 25 years of style

    Remember big bangs, rattails and hair picks?

    Mullets, Farrah Fawcett, crimps and funky side ponytails?

    Those hairstyles were all the rage when Cut Above opened its doors 25 years ago.

    The styles come and go – and recycle. But the four stylists and co-owners at the Hodgenville salon –Phillip and LaDona Childress, Rick Linder, and Cindy Smith – have remained the same through the years.

  • Lady Hawks 2-1 in Henderson tournament

    The Lady Hawks defeated the visiting John Hardin Lady Bulldogs Oct. 8, 25-21, 25-23, 25-17.

    LaRue County fought off rallies from John Hardin in the first and second sets and then cruised to a win in the third set.

    The Lady Hawks start four seniors and have 13 wins in their last 14 matches, so it’s usually pretty easy for them to identify their mistakes.

  • Special teams plays costly against Henry

    The LaRue County Hawks won the statistics battle Friday night, but they still lost the scoreboard war against Henry County.

  • Hawks fall to Bardstown

    On Monday the LaRue County Hawks traveled to Bardstown. Bardstown sought revenge for an 8-0 defeat on Hawks Senior night last year.

    The game was what the Hawks expected—physical but fair, total commitment from both teams desperate to show they wanted to win—with Bardstown striking first blood. The Hawks leveled the score shortly before half time with a goal from Senior Curtis Milby.

    Half time came and for the first time this season, the coaching staff had nothing to do as the Hawks were playing an almost perfect team game.
