  • Kids Crew faces bleak financial future

    The LaRue County School System ended fiscal year 2009 with $9.8 million, according to an audit prepared by Stiles, Carter & Associates, P.S.C.

    The cash balance reflected $2.2 million increase in the general fund, Brian Woosley, accountant for the firm, told school board members Sept. 21. The primary reason for the increase was cost control measures and not spending contingency funds.

    The district improved its financial position through an increase of $1.8 million in net assets – land, improvements, buildings, vehicles and construction in process.

  • We should never forget we are a Christian nation

    Someone recently sent me an e-mail about the Washington Monument. It said that one detail that is never mentioned is that in Washington, D.C.; there can never be a building of greater height than the Washington Monument. With all the crazies wanting to remove “In God We Trust” it’s interesting to note that the founders of this country didn’t share those views. Atop the Washington monument are the two Latin words Laus Deo. These words are a mere 5.125 inches high atop the 555 feet high monument.

  • Poteets go Russian in classic motorcycle

    Doug and Sandy Poteet of Hodgenville have been turning a lot of eyes this summer as they drive through the streets of town and nearby countryside.

    Actually, they’re not causing the double takes so much as the vehicle they’re riding – an olive drab Russian military motorcycle complete with side car and red stars.

    “It’s a DNEPR (pronounced D-KNEE-PRO) Model MT 16, produced in Kiev, Ukraine, the same model used in the Indiana Jones movie with Sean Connery as his father,” said Poteet, who lives on Eugenia Avenue in Hutcherson Heights.
