  • Gardeners may benefit from pressure canning class

    We are seeing a definite increase in the number of people growing their own gardens and doing their own food preservation. All Extension offices are getting an increase in requests for information regarding home canning and freezing. We have free publications at the Extension Service office.

  • Late blight strikes LaRue tomatoes

    This summer’s wet, mild weather made the perfect conditions for late blight in tomato plants.

    Late blight on tomatoes was found in LaRue and Laurel counties and could be more widespread, according to University of Kentucky College of Agriculture. The disease causes leaves to wither quickly and die. It can affect the whole plant or begin at the top or bottom and spread.

    LaRue County Extension Agent David Harrison said the infected plants were found on Old Sonora Road.

  • Jurors being selected today for murder trial

    A man charged with the murder of a Greensburg woman is set for trial today in LaRue Circuit Court.

    David McFarland, 45, told police he shot 22-year-old Sabrina Shirley – his former stepdaughter – after she became violent at his home July 11, 2007. Shirley, a mother of two toddlers, was not carrying a weapon.

    Inside the house, officers found several broken picture frames and a fire extinguisher. McFarland said Shirley sprayed the extinguisher in the house.

  • Blue mold outbreak found in tobacco fields east of LaRue

    A fairly significant outbreak of blue mold has been found in several fields east of LaRue County in Clark, Montgomery and Fleming counties. The disease appeared to have started in early July. The incidence and severity of blue mold was quite high. Actively sporulating lesions were abundant, making this a strong source for blue mold to spread.

  • Former employee files civil suit against school system

    A former LaRue County School District employee has filed a civil suit against the LaRue County Board of Education in LaRue Circuit Court.

    Melissa Enlow, a LaRue County Middle School lunchroom supervisor, was terminated June 15. Her suit claims violation of Kentucky’s Whistleblower Statute which protects public employees from reprisals if they divulge information of a suspected law violation.

    According to the suit, Enlow began employment with the school district as a part-time custodian in 1998, became a lunchroom worker in 2000 and eventually a supervisor.

  • Hawks aggressive in Nelson scrimmage

    The LaRue County Hawks packed a meaty offensive effort and focused on their defense in a preseason scrimmage against Nelson County Friday night in Bardstown.

    Nelson County, returning 22 seniors and 34 juniors, starts the season with a new coach and different mindset from last year. The team is running more of a spread offense - just the kind of offense Hawks Coach Rodney Armes had in mind to prepare his football team for the upcoming year.
