    LaRue County property owners will receive a break on school taxes next year.

    At the Aug. 16 board meeting, Superintendent Sam Sanders recommended the board take the compensating rate which could be levied without a hearing or recall (KRS 160.470).

  • Origins of food go back further than we imagine

    We often associate certain foods with different countries. Spaghetti is Italian, tacos are Mexican and what could be more American than apple pie?

  • Road courtesy, fears have lessons for life

    Very recently I spent some 650 miles worth of time on road travel to a jubilee celebration for some of our Sisters of Mercy in northern Ohio. The celebration was truly beautiful, such a cause for reflection on and great appreciation of God’s providence.

    We travelers were pretty good about car-pooling – the car passenger list grew to two in Louisville and to four Sisters in Cincinnati. It was great company besides.

  • Hawks slide past Green County, 24-22

    A wet football field Friday night at LaRue County didn’t work out very well for Green County. The Hawks defeated the visiting Dragons 24-22 despite Green County winning most of the statistical categories. LaRue County, however, won the most important one.

    The Dragon offense produced more total offense with both their passing and their rushing game. Green County picked up 13 first downs while limiting the home team to 11. However, critical penalties hurt the visitors, and they also lost the battle of turnovers by one.
