  • FOOTBALL: Hawks whip Washington County

    Five weeks ago, the LaRue County Hawks were 2-4 following a loss to Warren East. They had lost three straight and things weren’t looking so great for the boys from Hodgenville.

    After Friday night’s 49-7 dismantling of the visiting Washington County Commanders, the Hawks are riding a wave of momentum into the Class 3-A playoffs.

    They’ve reeled off three wins in their last four games to finish the regular season 5-5, a mark that didn’t appear attainable after Warren East won, 38-7 on Sept. 21.

    LaRue County's Band of Hawks, who are defending state champions, made the finals again in Class 2A. Hart County, Glasgow and Danville also advanced in Class 2A.

  • COLUMN: Don't text and drive

     Most of us have experienced distractions of one sort or another while driving, but did you know the consequences you might face if your distractions cause an accident?

    In Kentucky, all drivers are now prohibited by law from texting while driving. The law was signed in 2010.

  • COLUMN: 'I want to live!'

     A man was asked, “When you are in your casket, family and friends are mourning over you, what would you like for them to say about you?” His reply: “Look, he’s moving.”

    This man wanted to live and that is the desire of almost everyone. Why? There are a variety of reasons but I believe God placed the desire to live within every one of us. Without that desire, we would try to end it all when situations become extremely tough.

  • COLUMN: 5 is a perfect score for beef cows

     Late fall and early winter is an optimum time to prepare spring calving cows for reproductive success. Adequate nutrition from about 50 to 80 days prior to calving is critical to maximizing a cow’s ability to rebreed. If a cow gets inadequate nutrition or is thin at calving and breeding, she will take longer to come into heat.
