    The first significant snowfall of the season made driving treacherous and prompted administrators to close LaRue County Schools Thursday and Friday.

    Although the snow tapered off by Friday, subfreezing temperatures kept side roads and parking lots slippery. Most of the major roadways were cleared quickly by state and local road crews.

  • We're all part of 'the system'

    Late 2009 provided another vivid experience of a close call with vulnerability. A young, well educated and well off young man from another country attached explosives to his inner clothing with the alleged intent of igniting it and bringing down an airplane with many people aboard.

    Since then there has been major the back-and-forth about whether “the system” worked or not. The good news: the bomb did not go off and all landed safely.
