  • MAXINE; Correction - October 9, 2013

    Last week’s story about the Maxine store contained an inaccuracy.

    Kathy Ross, a granddaughter of Albert Hazle, who built the store, provided the correct information.

    Albert Hazle was born in 1901.

    He and his wife Ora opened the store in the early 1920s. It was located about a quarter mile from the Ky. 357 and 1517 crossroads.

    Ross’ father, Charles “Red” Hazle, was born in Maxine.

  • Another delay in murder case

    It has been nearly two years since the body of Kristie Lynne Allen was found inside a Buffalo home. The 28-year-old, who was house-sitting for a friend, was found wrapped in a comforter by her mother.

    White has been charged with Allen’s murder and burglarizing the house. His trial has been set for July 28, 2014. He remains lodged in the Hart County Jail under $2 million bond.
