    The 1947 Magnolia Majors basketball team was the first team in LaRue County to compete at the state Sweet 16 tournament.

    Players were Charles Read, Bill Lemons, J.D. Avery, Stuart Pepper, Coleman Miller, Charles Ward, Donald Mather, Hobart Bowen, Johnny Catlett (manager), Darnall McCubbin, Kenneth Bell, and Coach W.L. “The Fox” Reed.

  • MAGNOLIA; Town's history encapsulated in Magnolia Mall

    For most of its history, education has been an important part of the Magnolia community.

    The community’s first school was built in 1847, followed by two more schools built on surrounding farms.

    Magnolia College was built in 1879-80. Citizens of the town raised money to help build a brick building which was first designated the “Classical and Normal College.”

    The building burned May 31, 1894, according to the June 7, 1894 edition of The Herald News.

  • KHIC gives 'kick start' to youngest students

    In a race, a fast start can mean the difference between winning and losing.

    Similarly, providing children with opportunities for getting the best start possible in education can also make success in school more likely.

    To do that, United Way of Central Kentucky through Kids Crew Plus, and Hodgenville and Abraham Lincoln elementary schools’ family resource centers are piloting a summer program called KHIC (pronounced “Kick”) Start.

  • The glory days of summer hit the Hill

    The first of the sunflowers are in bloom, so now is an exciting time at Groundhog Hill.

    One sunflower is so tall that a stepladder is required in order to cut it.  Since, I have no stepladder handy, I’m just leaving it to bloom where the honeybees can enjoy it to their little hearts’ content.

    The zinnias are going gangbusters, as well. My sister-in-law, Laura, gifted me with many packets of new seed this past Christmas in an effort to get me to grow a color other than red (the theme of 2012, I tried to explain).
