  • Hart County downs Lady Hawks

    Hart County went on a 13-0 run to end the first quarter of its District 18 match-up with LaRue’s Lady Hawks and never looked back last week in posting a 78-41 win Feb. 24.

    “We did a lot of good things this season,” said coach Travis Wootton after his team’s season-ending defeat. “We had two goals ... to have a winning record and to make the region. We just fell a little short on that last one.”

  • Time to change time

    At 2 a.m. Sunday, it instantly became 3 a.m. as Daylight Saving Time returns.

    That means morning arrived earlier than your body might expect Sunday. It also means more daylight hours in the early evening.

    If it seems like the time change occurred sooner than you remember, that's because it is.

    In 2007, Daylight Saving Time moved to the first Sunday in March as part of an energy conservation bill passed by Congress. It also now lasts until the first Sunday in November, when the missing hour returns.

  • Lady Hawks retire two jerseys

    Feb. 14, the LaRue County girls’ basketball program retired two former players’ numbers.

    Jerseys 15 and 42 were retired in honor of Verda Dunn-Hacker, Class of 1981, and Lisa Phillips, Class of 1990.

    The jerseys will hang in the gym lobby along with the only other Lady Hawk jersey to be retired – Tammy Shelton, number 32, Class of 2005.

    These are the only three girls who have scored more than 1,500 points in girls’ basketball history, which started in 1975. They both are in the top five of almost every statistical category.

  • State contractor begins storm debris clean-up

    LaRue County is still digging out from under the debris left behind by the Jan. 27 ice storm.

    And time is running out for residents to take advantage of a free drop-off site for downed limbs and trees. March 4 is the last day that LaRue County Fairgrounds on Greensburg Street will be available for debris drop-off, according to Judge-Executive Tommy Turner. After that date, residents are responsible for disposing of their own storm leftovers.
