  • Police step up patrols to combat break-ins

    Local law enforcement has been faced with a string of break-ins and burglaries that “really don’t make a lot of sense.”

    That’s how Hodgenville Police Chief John Cottrill summed up the latest break-ins at Bent N Dent in Smith’s Plaza, Paula’s Hot Biscuit on West Water Street and Royal Pizza on Lincoln Boulevard.

    The thieves took the cash register from each business. At Royal Pizza, they also took a clock from the wall; at Paula’s, they took a window air conditioner.

    In most locations, a small amount of cash has been taken.

  • Outdated prescription drug drop-off set for Saturday

    Many medicine cabinets contain outdated or unused prescription drugs. When taken as prescribed, the pills or capsules provide health benefits. If misused, they can contribute to accidental poisonings or overdoses.

    Despite the frequent warnings by physicians and drug companies, many people are comfortable using drugs prescribed for others.

    National surveys show how widespread the problem has become:

    • More Americans abuse prescription drugs than those who abuse cocaine, hallucinogens and heroin combined. 

  • Early registration required for some Lincoln Days contests

    Lincoln Days will be held Oct. 2-3. But several events of the festival require an early registration.

  • Library, Loft plan Curiosity Day

    Seventy years ago, a curious little monkey was born.

    In 1941, Margret and H.A. Rey published the first of the Curious George books for children. The monkey and his pal, “The Man with the Yellow Hat,” have appeared in numerous renditions including a movie, cartoons and video games.

    The LaRue County Public Library and Lincolns Loft will celebrate the occasion with a “Curiosity Day” Saturday.

  • Hawks drop to Titans, prepare for Panthers

    The new high school in Shelby County, Martha Layne Collins High School, brought its high-powered offense to LaRue County Friday night. Quarterback Brandon Cresap was instrumental in the Titans’ 27-7 victory. Cresap threw two TD passes in the victory.

    LaRue County could only manage one touchdown and that was in the first quarter.  The Hawks had five drives of eight or more plays and had two opportunities to score inside the red zone but came up empty.
