  • Juveniles tie up emergency services after traffic stop

    A pair of teenage girls facing drug charges monopolized two LaRue County ambulances by complaining of severe menstrual pain last week.

    Lt. Steve Johnson of Hodgenville City Police received a call to assist an investigation by the Greater Hardin County Narcotics Task Force just after 9 p.m. March 9.

    “He said he needed help stopping a vehicle that possibly had marijuana in it,” Johnson said. LaRue County Deputy Marcus Jackson and Nelson County Deputy Dennis Wells assisted with the traffic stop.

  • Herald News recognizes Newspaper in Education donors

  • Book presents new stake in Lincoln legend

    Every few years, a new generation discovers vampires, adds a few twists to the old legends and falls in love with the undead all over again.

    When I was a kid, watching “Fright Night” movies on Saturday nights, Bela Lugosi was the vampire to fear. The black and white film “Dracula” was based on the 1897 novel by Bram Stoker.

    Who can forget that cheesy accent when the Count says, “Listen to them. Children of the night. What music they make.”

    Or “I never drink ... wine.”

  • Have you ever considered 'why'?

    “Why” is just a three-letter word. 

    When used in a question though it is one very big word – whether coming from a youngster or a moral theologian, with all of us along the spectrum in between them.

    Some more or less profound and random “Why” questions include:

    •Why do I pay more attention to troublemakers than people steadily doing good things?

  • Sometimes 'Just Ask' becomes a day-long search

    Does The Life Connection have any obligation to inform its neighbors when a resident leaves the property?

    ~•~

    Every now and then, I have difficulty finding the answer to a Just Ask question.

    This was one of the times.

    The Life Connection in Sonora is a residential treatment institution for young men with special needs. It has a capacity for 50 children. I was able to learn that much from the Internet.

  • LaRue Ambassadors honored

    The LaRue County Ambassadors were the recipients of the Richard Burks Award at the annual Lincoln Luncheon on Friday.

    The award honors an individual or group that promotes the Abraham Lincoln legacy and LaRue County history throughout the state.

  • Red Cross thanks

    The American Red Cross and its volunteers work every day to help save lives or rebuild lives that have been shattered by disaster – whether it is down the street, across the country, or around the world.

    March is Red Cross Month, and we want to thank those supporters whose generosity helps us continue our service to those who need us, every day.

  • Attorney honored for historic postcard collection

    Let it be known that local attorney and Lincoln historian Carl Howell is a dyed-in-the-wool deltiologist.

    Now, before you think that Howell has taken on a new religion, suffice it to say that a deltiologist is a person who collects postcards as a hobby.

    With more than 20,000 vintage postcards in his collection, including some 2,500 connected in various ways to Abraham Lincoln, Howell definitely fits the definition.
