  • Rex Hanson looks back on LaRue career

    One of LaRue County High School’s key faculty members has accepted a position outside the district.

    Rex Hanson, senior class sponsor and Math Department chairman, will teach dual credit college algebra and algebra 2 at John Hardin High School this fall.

    “I am leaving because I felt it was time for a change,” said Hanson. “There will be new experiences and opportunities in Hardin County to which I am looking forward. There are also some benefits of having my children attend school where they are districted.”

  • Just Ask -July 24, 2013

    At the end of the school year, Hodgenville Elementary School parents received a paper to vote  whether we wanted to buy our children school supplies or give the teacher $20 per child and have the teacher purchase the supplies. What happened to that idea?

    I received my children’s list in the mail and one of my kids needs 48 pencils. I find it hard to believe that any child can use 48 pencils in a school year. Did the $20 idea get voted down, or was it just not possible?

    HES Principal Sue Osborne responded:

  • Walk a mile in strange shoes

    A couple weeks ago I attended the community forum (in Nelson County) on the proposed natural gas pipeline coming through Kentucky. For the record, on what I have heard and studied, I am opposed to this project and hope it doesn’t happen, but as a realist, I know it will happen anyway because big business and big money rule the world. But that’s another story.
