  • Civil suits against deputies winding down

    A pair of civil cases involving LaRue County deputies were filed in 2011 in circuit court. One case was eventually dismissed while the other continues to wind through the court system.
    Two women alleged false imprisonment and false arrest against the department after their arrests in unrelated cases.

  • Bluegrass Pipeline releases easements

    Developers for the Bluegrass Pipeline pulled the plug on the controversial project last year  – and land transactions indicate the company is relinquishing claims in LaRue County.
    Letters were sent to several property owners stating:
    “Recently, Bluegrass Pipeline LLC decided that it will not pursue the Bluegrass Pipeline project. In light of this decision, we no longer have a need for the ... right of way agreement in the county land records, which will have the effect of extinguishing our easement rights on your property.”

  • Fair Board wants free water

    For many years, the City of Hodgenville provided free water and sewer service to the privately-owned LaRue County Fairgrounds.
    A change in administration led to a change in policy last summer – and an end to the free service.
    Monday night, several Fair Board members appealed to City Council to reinstate the agreement.
    Sandy Bell, fair board treasurer, described the fairgrounds as “nonprofitable.”
    The last water bill for the fairgrounds was $1,009 – and Bell said she had to borrow the funds to pay it.

  • COLUMN: No sport like wrestling

    My mother has been nagging me to write something.

    But that’s not why I decided to do it.

    I’ve been inspired by a book by Nolan Zavoral entitled “A Season On The Mat.” The book takes you into the 1996-97 season of Dan Gable and his Iowa Hawkeyes wrestling team.

    I just finished my first year of coaching middle school wrestling with Cody Gibbons.
