  • Family loses home in fire

    A Buffalo family lost their home and most of their possessions to fire Sunday afternoon.

    Roger and Arlene Perkins, who live off Badger Road near the LaRue-Taylor County line, were about to leave their home about 2:30 p.m. when Arlene smelled smoke. Roger Perkins said he “looked up and saw smoke coming from the corner of the roof.”

    “I told her ‘get out.’”

    Perkins said his wife grabbed a ring that held sentimental value, but they were unable to take anything else from the house. He hoped they would be able to salvage some items.

  • Country music and humor ingredients in Jamboree’s success

    After the Lincoln Jamboree’s 55th anniversary show Saturday, Joel Ray Sprowls parked himself in a tall cloth chair backstage and put his feet on a worn leather footstool.

    He then engaged in a bit of historic math: 55 years times 52 weeks equals 2,860 Saturday night performances of his music review that began in1954 in a rented theater on Lincoln Square. That total doesn’t include an occasional 53rd Saturday resulting from a well-timed leap year, the travel shows and county fairs or the 26 weekly television done on long ago Thursday nights in Bowling Green.

  • Soccer Hawks pluck Eagles

    On Sept. 1, the LaRue County Hawks boys' soccer team came out sluggish against the Eagles from Campbellsville, but the boys escaped with a 4-0 blanking at home. 

    Five minutes into the match, Dylan White rocketed his shot into the corner netting with the assist to fellow junior Dillon Walker. The junior attackers were unlucky as they traded passes and shots throughout the first half. The Hawks outshot the Eagles 11-2, in the half, but earned only a 1-0 lead.  Intensity picked up in the second half as the offense pelted the opponents’ goal mouth 12 times.
