  • Making schools safer

    As the new school year starts, LaRue County Schools have made some changes designed to make the schools safer for students and staff, noted Rip Collins, director of pupil personnel.

  • Lost in LaRue - July 26, 2017

    As I explained in the July 19 edition of The LaRue County Herald News, I made a trip to one of the most remote locations in LaRue County. To get there you have to go through at least two other counties, sometimes three depending on which way you go.

    The dappled light coming through the leaves on walnut trees and the vibrant blue of chicory that lined the road had me believing what my mom told me that “I suffer from Nature Deficit Disorder,” and I needed to slow down and just take in the scenery.

  • Uninvited passenger

    Imagine yourself out in the middle of the water in a boat, nothing but the scenery around you, a paddle in your hand, gliding along the water smooth as glass as a chorus of cicadas dies down giving way to the evening music of frogs and crickets.

    This is my happy place. It’s been a while since the last time we went on a canoe trip. It’s been long enough that the youngest two boys don’t really remember it.

  • Who is fake?

    Since I have been married, my life has become more booked as I now travel with “The Sextons” to southern gospel singings on most weekends.

    I love it. I get to see a lot of different places and meet all kinds of different people. Most importantly, we are all serving God.

    My wife Danielle sings harmony in the group. The rest of the group is made up of her parents, brother, uncle and cousins.

  • The Rock Fairy to visit CreekFront

    Rock painting, hunting and hiding have become a popular way for many LaRue Countians to spend their time. In Hodgenville, families can be seen downtown on the Square or at CreekFront Park walking around picking up little painted treasures at just about any point of the day.

    Some of these rocks have made their way all the way to New York and Florida. The LaRue County Library even set up a rock exchange, encouraging participants to bring in their painted rocks in exchange for others.

  • Making things happen

    We’ve all heard the saying, “Big things come in small packages.” Well, for the 5-foot senior Lady Hawk Volleyball player Breea Kirkpatrick, making big things happen on the court has been a way of life over the last four seasons.

    Kirkpatrick has been playing volleyball since second grade when she would attend the annual Lady Hawk Volleyball camps.
