  • School Board to consider revised calendar tonight

    LaRue County Schools were closed May 4 after flood waters made some roads impassable.

    The missed day created some concern that the date for graduation would be moved from May 28 to June 4. Many seniors have mailed invitations already and made plans for out-of-town guests.

    The make-up day will be discussed at the May 17 school board meeting. Superintendent Sam Sanders said he will recommend that graduation remain at 8 p.m. May 28.

  • Cleanup begins after flood

    Many LaRue Countians are trying to dry out their homes and possessions after last week’s storm dumped about eight-inches of rain on the area.

    A day made a great difference in the receding floodwaters. On Tuesday, Mike Barnes paddled a boat to check on his Hancock Lane house. Wednesday, U.S. 31E was cleared to traffic through Athertonville and New Haven.
