A new book by Nancy Barry goes deeply into the history of Kentucky, including LaRue County. Lightning Bugs and Sunday School is a collection of stories and poems about growing up and living in the commonwealth.
A group of agricultural economics graduate students from the University of Kentucky made their way to Hodgenville Friday afternoon. Many of the students were international and had never seen a Kentucky farm before.
A Hodgenville man charged with attempted murder and sexual abuse of a child was held two days last week at the LaRue County Detention Center under $500,000 cash bond. He was later transferred to Kentucky State Reformatory.
