  • Artist sculpts cake, life with determination and creativity

    With short blasts, the airbrush gun sprayed bursts of red paint on the blue and white surface of the bag. Moments later, Janet Brown arranged potato chips near the open bag so the chips appeared to be spilling out.

    But the chips were not real potato chips. They were specially shaped dried fondant pieces and were part of her cake, which looked like a bag of chips.

    “When I work with cakes, I work with the real thing,” Brown said. She had put a real potato chip bag beside her chocolate cake to use as a model for her cake sculpting.

  • Supports Shoffner

    I feel compelled to write this letter in support of Bobby Shoffner and his campaign for re-election of sheriff. I cannot say enough good things about Sheriff Shoffner and his deputies. Since 2005 until this past year, I worked for this county in the capacity of a social worker. During that time, one of my job duties was to perform investigations of allegations of child abuse and neglect. Any time the allegations were in the area of the county, I was always free to call any deputy working during that time.

  • Rain shortens tournament for Lady Hawks

    Heavy rains wiped out the Lady Hawks chances of winning a regular season tournament at Cumberland County in the Fred R. Capps Memorial Tournament. The team went 1-1 in pool play, and was ready for single elimination play on Saturday before rain canceled the tournament.

  • Supports Cruse

    I feel there are many reasons to elect Mayor Terry Cruse sheriff of LaRue County. He is an experienced lawman with many years of excellent service for LaRue County and more recently, serving as mayor of the City of Hodgenville with the same high level of integrity in that position.

  • Flooding causes widespread problems

    A week ago, LaRue Countians had to deal with the aftermath of a severe windstorm.

    This week, residents will try to dry out their homes and furnishings after heavy rains caused widespread flooding.

    Hard-hit areas include Youngers Creek, Athertonville, Salem Lake and Barren Run.

    About 8 inches of rain fell on the area in a 24-hour period beginning Saturday morning to late Sunday afternoon, according to Kentucky Mesonet. Although LaRue County does not have a Mesonet weather research station, surrounding counties reported 7 to 10 inches of rain.
