  • Hawks advance in playoffs

    Small things can make a big difference in football.

    Extra points seem virtually automatic in professional and college football. In the Class 4A playoff win last Friday, successful point-after tries made the difference on the scoreboard as the Hawks defeated Valley High 35-32.

    Bo Haun was five for five following LaRue County scores. Valley had no kicking option and went for two after each score and the Hawk defense prevented most of the efforts.

    Still the game had tense moments as the host Jefferson County school came from behind to challenge the Hawks.

  • LaRue looks for revenge Friday against Marion

    Whether on offense or defense, expect LaRue County to key on No. 27 Friday night as round two of the high school football playoffs begin.

    Marion County senior Dylan Peterson wears that uniform and did more than his share of damage when the Knights beat LaRue 33-7 on Oct. 16.

    Peterson clipped the Hawks for 115 yards on 14 carries, including two scores. On defense, he led his team with four solo tackles and nine assists.

  • Middle school teams claim championships

    LaRue County Middle School recorded twin basketball championships Thursday.

    The seventh- and eighth-grade girls’ basketball teams won the Central Kentucky Middle School Athletic Conference tournament titles. LaRue also won the regular season championships, which earned the Hawks the right to host its tournament games.

    The 46-31 win over Adair County for the eighth-grade team capped another extraordinary season. The team was 23-2 and the current eighth-graders have a two-year middle school record of 53-2.

  • Daugherty named to Poetry Society’s executive board

    Hodgenville native Mary Daugherty was inducted into the Kentucky Poetry Society’s Executive Board at Pine Mountain Resort Park. Through KSPS, members have the opportunity to associate with fellow writers, develop lifelong friendships, exchange ideas, and learn from each other and from workshop leaders at annual meetings on how to sharpen writing skills and appreciation for the art of poetry.

  • More drugs found at LaRue jail

    Two inmates at the LaRue County Jail will face a preliminary hearing Wednesday after officials reportedly found them passing a package containing prescription drugs, marijuana and a cell phone.

    Gregory Wayne Smithson, 43, and Keith Wayne Sisco, 53, were both charged Oct. 26 with promoting contraband in the first- and second-degrees and possession of a controlled substance. Both are state inmates at the Hodgenville facility.

  • Underwood places third in state poetry contest

    Jennifer Underwood of Elizabethtown placed third in the Kentucky State Poetry Society’s “Grin to Help You Bear It” contest for her poem, “Dark Ode to Slick Willy.”

    The contest is named for Eve Alderdice, a deceased poet known for her sense of humor.

    The awards were announced Oct. 17 at Pine Mountain State Resort Park in Pineville. Entries were required to have eight lines and be humorous.

  • Another way to help the environment

    Technology changes so rapidly with new gadgets invented every day. Many of us get caught up with purchasing the latest advances and do not think about how or when the device’s predecessor will be disposed.

    Estimates show Kentuckians annually dispose of about 40,000 to 80,000 tons of electronic waste.

    Fortunately, many Kentucky counties offer recycling programs for this waste, also known as e-scrap.

    Electronics contain valuable materials including copper, precious metals or engineered plastic.
