  • City deals with freezing weather, sewer and beavers

    The cold weather has been causing problems at the City’s sewer plant.

    Hodgenville Mayor Kenny DeVore informed city council members at the Jan. 12 meeting that a grinder shaft “that chops up toilet paper and other waste materials” had broken due to the freezing conditions.

    “It was the whole shaft this time, not just a pin,” he said. Workers will attempt to remove the mechanism and take it to a machine shop for repairs. If it cannot be welded, it will have to be replaced.

  • Highbaughs have pulling in the blood

    For the Highbaughs, tractor pulling isn’t just a hobby. It’s a lifestyle.

    David and his father, Lanny, are both from LaRue County and have been pulling competitively since 2004. For Lanny, this is his second go-round in the scene, as he also competed in the 1970s pulling four-wheel-drive trucks.
