  • Court case to challenge Kentucky's transparency laws

    There’s a difference between the public’s right to know and what the public “ought to know.”

    It’s a discussion my husband Bud and I have had several times.

    Kentucky’s open meetings and open records laws are near the top of the heap in comparison to other states. The Attorney General’s office sides with the taxpayer nearly every time when a question arises about access to records.

    But there are a few loopholes that could be filled.

  • Supports Cruse and family

    Terry Cruse is the current mayor of Hodgenville and is running for another term. He has tried to be responsible, as mayor, for seeing to many changes within the city – changes for the better and beautification.

    Of course, there are always some people who criticize everything, when things don’t go exactly like they want. There are people who are never satisfied with anything and always complain about something or someone.

  • Hours of Prayer

    The annual “Hours of Prayer,” a worldwide program, will be 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 23.

    Please join in one hour of prayer for the nursing homes, various types of care centers and their residents around the world. This is the hour we can all come together as a like-minded body of Christian believers. Even though we may be far apart in location, we can become united in spirit.

    Other locals around the country and the world will be praying.

  • Anyone else suffering from disconnects?

    I don’t know how our current cycle of national elections will turn out. I do know I feel jerked around by a lot of what I have heard and read. So many statements of disconnected, incomplete and sometimes incorrect information ….

    Among these:

  • Greenleaf named grand marshal of parade

    Our calendars are marked Nov. 11 in observance of Veterans Day, an annual U.S. holiday honoring military veterans.

    On Sunday, Nov. 7, LaRue County will honor veterans with the second annual Veteran's Day Parade and ceremony.

    William Greenleaf has been chosen as the parade's grand marshal.

    Greenleaf served in the U.S. Army for more than 29 years - serving in World War II in the South Pacific with the 37th Infantry Division, and three tours in Vietnam. He achieved the rank of master sergeant and was awarded numerous medals.

  • Lady Hawks ‘a better team’ by season’s end

    In the 1950s, there was a movie titled “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.”

    During the last week of the season, the Lady Hawks soccer team played three games. The Ladies won the first game, tied the second game and lost the third match. The third match was played in the postseason district tournament and ended the girls’ season. However, this real-life version can be titled “The Good, the Good, and the Better.”

    During this season, these young student-athletes were on a mission – to win the most games in school history.

  • Football: Hawks struggle with turnovers in loss to Marion

    The troubles continued for the LaRue County Hawks on Friday at John J. Boswell Field in Lebanon.

    The Hawks went a third consecutive game without a rushing touchdown and turned the ball over three times to district opponent Marion County in a 55-6 loss.

    “Everything is up field for us; we’re really struggling right now. Our confidence is way low. We’re had 12 turnovers in the last three games. Our confidence is really, really bad right now,” Hawks Head Coach Rodney Armes said.

  • Election of 1860

    The presidential election of 1860 was a turning point in U.S. history.

    Abraham Lincoln, a Republican from Kentucky, was elected to his first term of the Presidency. His defeat of three well-known opponents and his stance on slavery served as a tipping point for the onset of the Civil War.

  • Lady Hawks fall in region tourney

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks Volleyball Team was defeated in the championship game of the 18th District tournament.

    The Ladies came up a little short against a talented Green County Lady Dragons Team 26-24, 19-25 and 19-25. Green County has now won their eighth consecutive district title.

    The two teams split their regular season matches, with each team winning on their home court.
