  • Kentucky Stonehenge may result from a long history of gauming

    On Labor Day, my husband Bud and I drove to Munfordville and Cave City. We didn’t have a particular reason – just gauming around, as my dad used to say. (Gaum is a southern term used for “having no particular destination.” It may be used also to say “what an awful mess.” Some people spell it “gom.” Chances are, your dad said it too.)

    Anyway, while driving through Munfordville, we noticed a small sign that said “Kentucky Stonehenge.” Having no particular reason not to, we decided to follow the arrow.

  • Supports Hornback for school board

    I write today in support of Mike Hornback for LaRue County Schools Board of Education.

    He has consistently put his support of the LaRue County Schools into action.  That’s the type of school board member LaRue Countians should support. It is easy for people to say that they care about education and our students. There really isn’t anyone who would openly say he or she didn’t support our public education system. However, saying and doing are entirely different things.  That’s what sets Mike Hornback apart from the average citizen.

  • ACT scores show improvement

    The composite ACT score for 2010 Kentucky high school juniors remained stable from the score recorded a year ago.

    LaRue County Schools, however, showed a stark improvement in some areas of the college readiness test.

    The results released last week are from tests that all Kentucky high school juniors took last spring. It was the third year in a row for LaRue County juniors to take the now-required ACT. Results were shared during the Aug. 16 school board meeting.

  • Lady Hawks defeat Grayson, Monroe

    The Lady Hawks soccer team defeated the Lady Cougars of Grayson County 1-0 on Sept. 14.

    The offense of senior Shelby Mouser, juniors Megan Smith and Skye Davis peppered the goal mouth and consistently made thru-passes, driven passes and crossing passes only to be denied by the defense. However, it was the freshmen duo of Shelbi Brooks and Abby Modrowski who netted the only score of the match. Brooks rocketed the ball past the keeper with 10 minutes remaining in the first half with the assist to Modrowski.

  • Jail employees become certified in CPR

    Several employees at the LaRue County Detention Center were certified or re-certified last week in CPR and first aid.

    Joey Stanton, chief administrative officer at the jail, first set up the class last year with Southern Health Partners. Employees are required by the Department of Corrections to stay up to date on the four-hour course. Stanton said that before last year the course hadn’t taken place in three or four years.
